Movie Reviews

God Bless This Movie
Dave | Bethel Park, Pa | 04/30/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Goldeneye" was great. "Tomorrow Never Dies" was good. "The World Is Not Enough" was excellent. Pierce Brosnan, no matter what cranky critics say, is a fantastic Bond, who is sort of like a melting pot of the past actor's best attributes. Connery's vicious edge, Moore's amusing wit, and Dalton's brutality. Another thing that makes Brosnan a keeper is that, like Connery and Moore, he has fun with Bond. Dalton and Lazenby made the mistake of taking this as a serious acting job. It isn't. TWINE does have a great script which is understandable (I guess a lot of people who complained just weren't attentive, since very few modern movies require that.) Renard may have been a lame bad guy, but Carlisle did play him well and believably - isn't that all that counts? Denise Richards, however laughable she was as Christmas Jones, did well with her material. And, the way I look at it, she wasn't evne the main Bond woman this time around. Sophie Marceau is perhaps one of the sexiest Bond women ever to grace the silver screen. There was no doubt that she was the perfect choice for Elektra King, playing the good-girl gone bad to a tee. I hope she is more visible in future years."
Great Bond film breathes new life into the series

"I thought I'd never say this, but Pierce Brosnan is about the best Bond since the very young Sean Connery (slurp, drool.) This Bond film is really about the best I've seen so far. It delivers what we all expect from Bond films-action and plenty of it, gadgets, intricate plot, one bad girl and one good Bond girl. The Bond girl here is Denise Richards (Starship Troopers) who works as an unlikely atomic physicist in shorts and tee shirt (think Lara Croft) and has an even more unlikely name "Christmas Jones." She is outshone, however, by lovely Sophie Marceau as Electra King, poor little rich girl gone bad.In fact, what makes this film so great is that the supporting cast is so excellent. Lead bad guy Renard is well played by Robert Carlyle, Judy Dench makes an admirable (if somewhat stupid) M, and we get to see Desmond Llewlyn as "Q" one last time. The direction by Michael Apted is tight. The film never falters.The stunts are spectacular, including an opening boat chase on the Thames that makes you appreciate the art of stunt filming without the assist of CGI graphics. The predictable helicopter makes its appearance, but with a real twist-dragging some kind of tree-trimming sawblades that do amazing things to buildings.The only quibble I have is that the villain --a man who feels no pain is a ridiculous concept. There are people who feel no pain, and they end up pretty much incapacitated, not to mention that a bullet even brushing the medulla oblongata stops your breathing . Too unbelievable and really, the lack of pain part was not even needed for the script. Dumb.The DVD surround sound quality was distinct. The extras include scenes of "how we did this" material that can be brought up as an option-nice for subsequent viewings."
Thank God, it has a plot!

"I think right now, the 007 dynasty is damned-if-they-do and damned-if-they-don't. It seems every time they try to do something a little bit edgy or different from the usual formula, they get castigated by millions of viewers crying, "This is not we expected!", while the more formulaic films get lambasted for containing "all the usual lame gadgets and contrived stunts". Personally, I love it when the creators try to depart from the norm, and TWINE is one of the best examples of this. To begin with, it actually has a plot! I agree, it's not the best plot I've ever seen, but in Bond films the plot does not have to be airtight, and at least there is more to this one than the stupid action-driven premise of TND. Brosnan is seriously trying to portray 007 as a real person, rather than the suave superhero parody that Moore was trying to be. Carlyle is great as the new millenium's Jaws, although he is seriously underused. The action is not non-stop, but when it comes it is breathtakingly done. Come on, admit it - you never expected that second parafoil to open up, did you? Overall, I'd say this is the fifth best James Bond ever, much better than TND and leagues ahead of anything Moore or Dalton ever did. Just for comparison, my all-time favourite is Goldfinger, followed by FRWL, OHMSS, and Goldeneye."
The World is not enough DVD
MATTHEW LEE EDWARDS | 05/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was recently lucky enough to obtain an advance copy of the region 1 disc in England. I have been told the two main differeces between my copy and the U.k release will simply be a different graphical interface. The dvd is chocked full of special features, the best one however is a feature similar to that of Tomorrow Never Dies storyboard, however this time around you can opt to stop the action when a special symbol is displayed (007) and watch how that stunt etc was created- Fantastic. The quality of picture is excellent, I saw the premiere here in London, and the picture quality on my desktop p.c is sharp well detailed and clean. The sound however is where the disc really excels. The boat sequence in particular picks up every splash and bullet. Forget the Matrix, this dvd is the new showcase by which all other dvd releases will be judged."
