“James Bond will return,” says the closing title of this somewhat better than average 007 adventure, but the bottom line is that he's never been away. The cold war may be dead and buried, but British intelligence needs to be kept busy, even if this means—as the script briefly and wittily suggests—creating its own enemies. With an appropriately imperialistic title (does it apply to the villains or to Anglo-American intelligence? does it matter?), a better than average director (Michael Apted), and locations ranging from Spain to Azerbaijan to Turkey, this keeps one reasonably amused, titillated, and brain-dead for a little over two hours. The principal Bond babes this time around are Sophie Marceau and Denise Richards, not counting Judi Dench as Bond's boss; Bruce Feirstein and Michael France had something to do with the script (1999, 127 min.).
