So this movie happened and for the most part, people have forgotten about it. If you bring it up with people they will either shrug or if they're a Bond fan give a huge sigh. Most people will agree that this is one of, if not, the worst Bond movie. Whether or not it is the worst is beside the point. For this blog I will start with the lesser Bond flicks, and since this oneis in the trash heap I've decided to dig it up and share my thoughts on it.
So for starters this is at the end of the Brosnan era. An era filled with esteem and prestige. An era of wonder and imagination. One with the utmost... okay I'm completely kidding. When I was younger I didn't mind the Pierce Brosnan years and for the most part I still don't. But I am not above calling them what they are (insert favorite destructive and controversially adjective here). So when 2002 rolled around I was expecting that he was going to dish out a similiar film to his previous entries. When I finally saw the film I realized that this was a different Bond movie, on the surface. Then I realized it was full of all the extreme plot points and so on that plagued the last few Bond flicks.
I mean it wasn't quite as wacky as Moonraker (don't get me started on that space trash). But come on, within the first five minutes you have Bond surfing. What in the hell is up with that ("Charlie Don't SURF" and neither does Bond). Also to top that off he's surfing in North Korea. It doesn't get much crazier than that... oh wait I almost forgot about the whole skin surgery plot point and the fact that the villian has the film equivalent of the Hammer of Dawn. In between that you have got everything from Michael Madsen (don't ask) and "London Calling."
Now it is time for my rating system. Each category has a different score and is subject to change. For now I will try this out, but I might throw in some new categories that may pertain to the movie. So, without further ado.....
Bond Acting Score------------ mediocre
Bond Girl Acting Score-------not really good at all
Plot------------ I don't even know
Theme Song---- its Madonna, so there's not much else I can say about that
WTF moment-----tie----- Bond surfing, hammer of dawn, michael madsen in a Bond Film?
Overall Film------- not good, avoid unless diehard Bond film
P.S: Do you guys want me to post this on General Discussion or James Bond forum.
