Elliott Carver's newspaper factory is the printing presses of London's Daily Telegraph and Evening Standard. See more »
If the glass in the sound studio were sound-proof, it would be inches thick. Bond and Carver's henchman would not have gone crashing through it so easily. See more »
Our man's in position on the center camera. It's like a terrorist supermarket. Chinese Long March Scud, Panther AS-565 attack helicopter, a pair of Russian mortars, and the crates look like American rifles. Chilean mines. German explosives. Fun for the whole family.

The distance between insanity and genius is measured only by success.
Jonathan Pryce is the evil Elliott Carver in this James Bond version with Pierce Brosnan in the role. Dame Judi Dench is M and Geoffrey Palmer (her costar from her British comedy series) is also in the film. Samantha Bond played Ms. Moneypenny. Teri Hatcher and Michelle Yeoh played his love interest. It's the same routine with exotic stunts; a romance; and adventure around the world. A typical James Bond film.
