||All the other Bond films and Ian Fleming’s characters
||Neal Purvis, Robert Wade
||This film said to reference every other Bond film before it.
||Pierce Brosnan, Halle Berry, Toby Stephens, Rosamund Pike, Rick Yune, Judi Dench, John Cleese, Michael Madsen, Samantha Bond
||After time in a North Korean prison Bond’s credentials with MI6 are removed, but he believes that he has been sold out by a mole and so embarks on an international hunt for his betrayer, on the way taking on an evil billionaire and picking up an attractive female CIA operative.
||A whole load of set pieces the more memorable of which were a duel in a fencing club, a car chase in an Icelandic ice palace and a shoot out in an enormous cargo aircraft. There is drinking and implied sex but nothing explicit.
||This was almost approved of by Rotten Tomatoes and I liked it, maybe because Pierce Brosnan is a pretty good Bond I think. If there is a fault it is that the writers are not satisfied with one climax, they had to have two which is just a bit irritating. If you enjoy a Bond outing you will know what to expect.
