Character Names


"The World is Not Enough" is the nineteenth film in the James Bond series, released in 1999. It was directed by Michael Apted and stars Pierce Brosnan as James Bond, with Sophie Marceau, Robert Carlyle, and Denise Richards in supporting roles.

In the film, Bond is assigned to protect the daughter of a murdered oil tycoon, Elektra King (played by Sophie Marceau), as she takes over her father's business. However, Bond soon discovers that King is not as innocent as she seems, and is actually in cahoots with the film's primary villain, a terrorist named Renard (played by Robert Carlyle), who is planning to use a stolen nuclear warhead to destroy Istanbul.

The film features many of the classic Bond elements, including high-octane action sequences, exotic locations, and a memorable villain. However, it also features a more complex and character-driven storyline than some of the previous Bond films, with a focus on themes such as betrayal, revenge, and the corrupting influence of power.

The film was generally well-received by audiences and critics, with many praising Brosnan's performance and the film's blend of action and drama. It also performed well at the box office, grossing over $360 million worldwide.
