Synopsis: Documentary about the making of the 1999 installment in the James Bond series, The World is Not Enough.
15 min

So good of you to come see me, Mr. Bond.

Particularly on such short notice.

lf you can't trust a Swiss banker,

what's the world come to?


And now that we're all comfortable...

...why don't you sit down?

It was not easy...

...but I have retrieved the money.

No doubt Sir Robert will be

pleased to see it again.

At the current rate of exchange,

minus the fees and certain...

...unforeseeable expenses.

Voila, the receipt.

Would you like to check my figures?

I'm sure they're perfectly rounded.

It's all there.

I didn't come for the money.

The report Sir Robert bought was stolen...

...from an MI6 agent who was killed for it.

I want to know who killed him.

-Terrible tragedy.

-I just want a name.

I am merely the middleman.

I'm trying to do the honorable thing...

...returning the money to its rightful owner.

We know how difficult

that can be for a Swiss banker.

I am offering you the opportunity

to walk out with the money.

And I'm giving you the opportunity

to walk out with your life.

Looking at our present situation... a banker, I'd have to say...

...that the numbers are not on your side.

Perhaps you failed to take into account... hidden assets.

You've had a small reversal of fortune.

-Give me the name.

-I can't tell you.

Let's count to three.

You can do that, can't you?



All right.

But you'll have to protect me--


Have you brought me

a souvenir from your trip?


An engagement ring?

I thought you'd enjoy one of these.

How romantic.

I know exactly where to put that.

Oh, Moneypenny.

The story of our relationship:

close, but no cigar.

I hate to tear you away from affairs of state.

Would you mind coming in?

Right away, M.

Sir Robert King, James Bond.

The man who retrieved my money.

Thank you. Excellent work.

Be careful, M.

I might steal him from you.

Construction's not exactly my specialty.

Quite the opposite, in fact.

Best to the family.

Old friend?

We read law at Oxford together.

I always knew he'd conquer the world.

Care for a drink?

Yes, thank you.

He's a man of great integrity.

Who buys stolen reports

for 3 million pounds.

Thank you.

Any leads on the sniper?

Not one.

Professional job.

She must be working for someone.

-Is this the stolen report?

-Yes. Classified.

From the Russian Atomic Energy Department.

What would King want this for?

He was led to believe

the document was a secret report...

...identifying the terrorists

who'd attacked his new oil pipeline.


It doesn't explain why someone

would want me out of their office alive.

King! The money.

Moneypenny, stop King.

Move! Move, move!

Get out of the way!



Get out of the way! Move!

Stop, stop!

It isn't finished!

Let go!

-What do you think you're--?

-Let go!

Listen to me!

You can't get away.

We can make a deal.

Tell me who's behind this...

...who you work for.

Don't do it!

Don't blow us up!

I can protect you.

Do you understand?

I can protect you.

Not from him!

Hello, my dear.

Who is that young woman?

King's daughter.


Thank you.

The money was dipped in urea.

A highly compacted fertilizer bomb.

Having handled the money,

the water on 007's hands...

...when he touched the ice,

started a chemical reaction.

In one note, the anti-counterfeiting strip

was replaced with magnesium...

...which acted as a detonator.

And King's lapel pin...

...was switched for a copy...

...which contained a radio transmitter

to trigger the blast.

In other words,

he set off the bomb that killed him.

We know it was someone close to King...

...and our only lead

committed suicide on that balloon.

But given the size of King's organization... could be anyone, anywhere.

This will not stand.

We won't be terrorized by cowards

who'd murder an innocent man...

...and use us as the tool.

We'll find those who committed this atrocity.

We'll follow them to the farthest

ends of the earth, if needs be.

And we will bring them to justice.


M says you're off the active-duty list

until you're cleared by medical.

Dislocated collarbone.

If any more tendons snap,

I'm afraid you'll be out of action for weeks.


...I need a clean bill of health.

You have to clear me for duty.

-That wouldn't really be--




Well, let's just...

...skirt the issue, shall we?

You'd have to promise to call me...

...this time.

Whatever the doctor orders.

I suppose if you stayed in constant contact--

Of course.

If you showed sufficient stamina...

-...cut out all kinds of--

-Strenuous activity?

I suppose we all have to

pay the piper sometime, right, Q?

Oh, pipe down, 007.

Was it something I said?

No. Something you destroyed.

My fishing boat.

For my retirement...

...away from you.

Now, I want to introduce you

to the young fellow...

...I'm grooming to follow me.

Helps to open the door.

And you might be...?

This is 007.

If you're Q, does that make him R?

Yes, the legendary 007 wit.

Or at least half of it.

Now, I dare say, 007,

that you've met...

...your match with this machine.

New model? Improved specs?

I thought you were

on the inactive roster. Some injury?

We'll see about that.

As I was saying, the very latest

in interception countermeasures.

Titanium armor,

a multitasking heads-up display...

...and six beverage cup holders.

All in all, rather stocked.
