Film and Plot Synopsis
When someone murders an oil tycoon named Sir Robert King in cold blood, MI6 assigns James Bond to protect his daughter, Elektra. It seems an anarchist named Renard, with a vendetta against the British agency, is behind the murder, and he now has his eyes set on taking down the King pipeline; even if he has to kill Elektra too. While investigating his assignment, Bond eventually learns there might be more to King’s death, and that Elektra might have ulterior motives about the pipeline. With help from an old adversary named Valentin Zukovsky and a physicist named Dr Christmas Jones, Bond races against the clock to stop the terrorist’s plan for destroying the pipeline before it’s too late.
‘The World Is Not Enough’ Movie Summary
After unknown people attack Bond and Elektra, he heads out to pursue them. He discovers that Elektra’s head of security was going to pose as a nuclear scientist as a part of a plot with Renard. Bond kills him and instead poses as a nuclear scientist.
He finds Renard stealing a nuclear weapon. Bond teams up with foxy scientist Christmas Jones and tries to stop the heist, but he’s lucky to escape with his life.
Bond suspects that Elektra might be in on the plot, but M is incredulous. Meanwhile, someone dumps the nuke into Elektra’s new oil pipeline. Bond and Jones try defuse it, discovering that half of the plutonium is missing. The bomb explodes, and everyone presumes Bond and Jones are dead.
Elektra takes this as her chance to come clean, and she confesses that she was in league with Renard, and that she killed her father as revenge for using her as bait for Renard. Then she kidnaps M. Bond learns the other half of the plutonium will blow up Istanbul; making Elektra’s oil pipeline that much more valuable.
Elektra captures Bond and Jones, and she takes Bond to the tower to reunite with M. Bond ultimately escapes and kills Elektra. Bond then makes it to the submarine, and frees Jones. He crashes the submarine and kills Renard; leaving the submarine to explode safely at the bottom of the ocean.
