Another Bond film.
Again I went into this film with high expectations, and came out mildly disappointed. Oh, all the elements were there, and the stunts and action were all very good. I warm greatly to Brosnan’s Bond, and yet he’s also starting to irritate me as Bond. He lacks the flamboyance of Moore and Connery, although I do think he’s an excellent Bond.
But anyway, the film. I feel a bit ashamed at how long it took me to see the ‘twist’ coming regarding the chief antagonist, and I was taken completely by surprised by the identity of the mole (as was Bond!), although other friends feel it was obvious.
The helicopter bit at the end didn’t work either, although the cars in paddy field did make me chuckle.
Acceptable, but could have done better.
