This is the 19th installment of the James Bond series and the third to star Pierce Brosnan as James Bond.
It was released in 1999.
The story revolves around the assassination of billionaire Sir Robert King by the terrorist Renard, and Bond's subsequent assignment
to protect King's daughter Elektra, who had previously been held for ransom by Renard.
During his assignment, Bond unravels a scheme to increase petroleum prices by triggering a nuclear meltdown in the waters of Istanbul.
In the opening scene, James Bond meets a Swiss banker to retrieve money for Sir Robert King, a British oil tycoon and friend of M.
Bond tells the banker that King was buying a report stolen from an MI6 agent who was killed for it, and wants to know who killed him.
The banker threatens Bond, but Bond overpowers him.
The banker is killed by his female assistant before he can reveal the assassin's name.
Bond escapes with the money.
Back in London, Sir Robert is killed by the booby-trapped money inside MI6.
Bond gives chase to the female assassin (the Swiss banker's assistant) on a boat on the Thames to the Millennium Dome,
where the assassin attempts to escape via hot air balloon.
Bond offers her protection, but she refuses.
She detonates the balloon, killing herself.
The series of actions in the opening scene are quite exciting and gripping, but somewhat ridiculous in the sense that those actions could never happen in the real world.
Twists and turns in the plot are also somewhat unrealistic. In other words the movie was a letdown.

Aw, come on, who wouldn't believe Denise Richards as a nuclear scientist.
With Trudough hyped to be the next PM of Canada this is well in line casting.

Bond finds himself caught up in an investigation into an anarchist and his group, tied into an oil company heiress whose father has been assassinated. The bad in the film: a nuclear scientist played by Denise Richards of all people is not believable at all, and should have been cast entirely differently. That said, however, the good outweighs the bad. Brosnan plays the role of Bond well in his third time out, and he's matched off against formidable villains: Robert Carlyle as Renard is sadistic and ruthless, and Sophie Marceau as the two faced heiress who first seduces Bond and then shows her true colours is memorable. Add to that a good turn by Judi Dench as M, a fun character role for Robbie Coltrane, and the swan song for the late Desmond Llewlyn as Q, and the good in the film does compensate for the horrible casting job of Denise Richards.

Not one of the better Bond movies.
