For me a shortcoming of the production design of the Stealth Ship interior is that it lacks the hyper-real 'wow' impact that a Ken Adam set would have had. It's techno and steely but lacks an in-your-face quality.

Agreed, Adam would have done this 100% better

It’s funny, Carver is the opposite of Drax. Stressed under pressure.

Time intervals very DAF....

This is Thunderbird 2, how can I be of assistance?

Music “A Tricky Spot For 007” Called that on the CD, combines smaller cues in film

It's a measure of how effective Gupta is as a sub-villain that I really *like* it when he gets his...

I'd really like the Royal Navy to do another apperance in a Bond film

Love Michael Byrne! No idea why a Vice-Admiral is in the ops room of a deployed vessel though??

She's certainly more convincing at action than Brosnan is.  That's his real weakness in all of these films.

She definitely kicks ass more than the majority of other “Bond Girls”. The “hiyah” every time she kicks someone is a bit comedic though  ajb007/lol
