As the countdown begins for the new millennium there is still one number you can always count on.
Greed, revenge, world dominance, high-tech terrorism -- it's all in a day's work for cunning MI6 agent James Bond, who's on a mission to protect beautiful oil heiress Elektra King from a notorious terrorist. In a race against time that culminates in a dramatic submarine showdown, Bond works to defuse the international power struggle that has the world's oil supply hanging in the balance.

There are so many problems with this film. The Bond girl is terrible, some of the action makes no sense, and Renard does not get any interesting screen time. However, it isn't too terrible either. We get more M, which is great. The boat chase is fun, and I love the return of Valentin Zukovsky. Overall I'd probably come in a bit lower in my rating, but to be honest I remember this one so well from my childhood that I enjoy it more than I probably should.

One of the worst James Bond intros ever (I think those psychedelic colors should symbolize the colors of the oil but it looks just crappy)! The story isn't great either although the idea behind it ("Oil is the elixir of life for the West") isn't that bad... All in all a mediocre Bond movie and Brosnan's / Bond's invincibility is so annoying, again!
