Format: DVD
This is the best film to date in the series, hands-down. It may not have the classic charm of Goldfinger, but a couple of viewings (something most people aren't willing to credit a Bond film with) reveal a film which is incredibly substantial, in an unprecedented - and unnecesary - way. It could get by on the charm of the locations, one-liners etc., but it still tries to put together a credible and interesting plot, and it succeeds.
The most obvious credit to the writers is Carlyle's brooding, existentialist villain, which reminded me of The Misfit in O'Connor's 'A Good Man is Hard to Find.' Carlyle, in surprising contrast to his turn as the psychotic Begbie in Trainspotting, plays the role with just enough subtley and understatement, making the character's evil much more believable than the cackling megalomania of earlier specimens. What I also like about the screenplay, though, and what isn't immediatley apparent, is that it casts some doubt on the role of Bond in the world. In other movies, he seems to have an absolute moral imperative, able to gun down scores of people without any consequence, simply because his enemies are abosolutley evil. In this film, though, among the ruins of the USSR (a theme already explored in Goldeneye), there's more gray than black and white, and the circumstances don't allow him to get off so blamelessly; ultimately he has to do something which he might might regret. It's far from making him human - if that were to happen, it would undermine the whole promise of the series - but it's an interesting take.

Format: DVD
THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH (known to Bond fans as TWINE) may be Pierce Brosnan's finest outing as Bond to date. A more complex and nuanced story than most recent Bond films, TWINE recaptures a good part of the exotica and international intrigue of the Bond series as first conceived.
The precredits sequence sets up the story nicely: Sir Robert King, oil magnate and friend of "M" (Judi Dench) is killed by booby trapped money delivered to him by Bond. All roads lead to Rome, the roads being clues, and Rome in this case being represented by Electra King (Sophie Marceau), Sir Robert's beautiful daughter, who was the victim of a recent kidnap plot hatched by the mysterious Renard, a terrorist rendered unable to experience pain by a bullet lodged in his skull. "M" dispatches Bond to protect Electra, who has taken over her father's petroleum empire in central Asia.
From the moment he arrives in Azerbaijan, Bond is a hunted man. Although first enamored of Electra, Bond soon realizes that there is something amiss.
In TWINE, Brosnan resurrects the dark Bond of FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE. His dual nemeses, Electra and Renard, are ably played by Marceau and Robert Carlyle, who both bring some surprising depth to their characters. Electra is particularly sympathetic, being both the brainwashed victim and willing accomplice of Renard. She is by turns sexual and ingenuous, vulnerable and implacable. Marceau is breathtakingly beautiful.
Carlyle's Renard, trapped in a body that can't feel, exudes both pathos and hatred as he plots the destruction of the democracies.
Dench's "M" plays a central role in the film, far larger than any "M" before her. The film is notable for being the last appearance as Desmond Llwellyn as "Q".

The Amazon reviewer noted that JB was becoming formulaic...well, in a sense, every movie is formulaic: Mysteries, science fiction, light romances, even drama. What was good about this were the terrific special effects, the complex, modern plot (The USSR is no more) and the music. Bad things: Alas, romance. The lead could not compete with earlier Bond women and being neither a femme fatale or a blushing virgin we are caught in the middle. Brosnan was good in this role, a more serious JB that brought much-needed weight and content to the part.

Format: DVD
For me, this was one of those films where first impressions weren't exactly the best ones as when this film was released there was a great deal of hype about it and I certainly remember being excited about it but the reality of it at the theater didn't ring true. My opinion of its theatrical release had even been so poor as to not even purchase the DVD when it was released. A recently rekindled interest in the Bond films brought me to the decision to give this film one more chance which also leads one to the market place sellers as the DVD is no longer in production unless you wish to buy one of the entire boxed sets to get this film.
Upon viewing "The World is Not Enough" the second time I would definitely have to say that I was overly critical of its theatrical release. Taken as a whole, this third Bond film with Pierce Brosnan as James Bond is a pretty good film. The basic premise is a bit weaker than the other three Bond films starring Brosnan but of course, the films producers overcome that with some spectacular action sequences and scenery.
Performance wise, Pierce Brosnan does Bond extraordinarily well in this, his third appearance. At this point in time, who else could play Bond, probably nobody as he's made the part entirely his and we, the fans, are the better for it. One of the greatest treats in this Bond film, as with all Bond films is some new Bond babes and as even more special treat this film stars the extraordinarily beautiful French actress Sophie Marceau who may be best known by American audiences for her role in "Braveheart." Her performance for this film is pretty much perfect to the role, which is "over the top," as she takes her character from one end of the extreme to the other.
