Re: TWINE is massively under appreciated.

I'm close to the point where I'll never watch another Brosnan Bond completely other than The World is not Enough. Can't say that for any other Bond actor. Daniel Craig has two that I watch, Casino Royale and Spectre. We'll see about No Time to Die. But I'm having bad feelings after seeing that bike jump.

You didn’t like the look of that bike jump? It seems like a pretty impressive stunt to me.

Edit: I see you’ve discussed the bike jump a bit more in depth in the B25 discussion thread. I’ll jump over there so I don’t get this thread off track.

I would be in the opposite camp for this one. TWINE is a movie that I will not be watching again, unless I am watching the entire franchise again.

In the bottom tier of Bond movies for me, with arguably the worst Bond girl in the series.

I never thought of the worst Bond girls in the series before. I think Halle Berry would easily be on that list. Her "acting" in that laser scene is terrible. The new 00 girl already seems far better than Jinx.

Yeah, she's awful too but nothing is as bad as Denise Richard's acting in TWINE.

Not sure if Richards has been really picked because of her acting skills, on all other aspects, she ticks most boxes  ajb007/biggrin

Re: TWINE is massively under appreciated.

First post here! Love this series, both Fleming's original books and the films.

TWINE is an interesting entry for me. I love maybe more than half of this film. I can't quite put my finger on the trigger for why this film isn't one I'd go out of my way to watch again. I think it's a mobie that is close to Fleming's spirit of the original books, qnd that's what really draws me to it. Brosnan here is pitch-perfect Bond. But there are many small elements that clash with that feeling, it creates a dissonant note. I think Bond films work best when they are more molded by the "thriller" genre rather than the "superhero" genre, and TWINE flirts that line in not a good way.

I feel like I'm bashing the film in a thread celebrating it, but like I said, I'm 65% in love with this movie. The villains and their plot are pretty spot on.

Welcome to AJB theavengerbutton.

65% in love sounds like a fair reflection of TWINE’s strengths and flaws. I went through the series bout a year ago giving each film a score out of 100, ranging from full marks for FRWL to 20 for NSNA. My score for TWINE ended up being 60.
