Goofs

When Bond and Max are playing the video game for World domination, there is no correlation between the points earned at the top of the screen and the value of the country being fought for. Max scored 31,000 points while having won $24,000 for the first two countries. See more »

Quotes

M: I send you to a health farm to get yourself in shape! Instead you DEMOLISH it! Now I've had to notify the local police, get a minister to muzzle the press, and allocate a sizable chunk of my meager budget to renovating the establishment!
James Bond: A man DID try to kill me, sir.
M: Oh! Caught you seducing his wife, did he?
James Bond: No, sir, not at all. But, in fact, I did lose 4 lbs and God knows how many free radicals.
M: [slams the table] That is the KIND of attitude that tempts me to suspend you, 007!

Not as bad as I heard it was
17 January 2002 | by mm-39See all my reviews

This film is supose to be so bad, I never rented it for years. I sure was wrong, I gave it a 6, when I heard this movie was a 3. James Bond comming out of traing to the live field is a ok concept. The film is on a lower budget, but they did well with what they have. This film shows how good of an actor Sean Connery is. Bronson with three time the budget never gets across in the mannor, or humor which Connery can. Connery makes this movie worth watching he adds so much to the scenes; when he gets into a fight he gives it Bond magic. Connery delivers a one liner in a James Bond way. He maybe old, but there was still some gas in the tank.
