Main Plot

James Bond uncovers a nuclear plot while protecting an oil heiress from her former kidnapper, an international terrorist who can't feel pain.


  • Pierce Brosnan's character, James Bond, is tasked with protecting an oil heiress and stopping a terrorist plot.
  • Sophie Marceau's character, Elektra King, is a key antagonist who manipulates James Bond in a revenge plot.
  • Robert Carlyle's character, Renard, is a terrorist who is unable to feel pain and seeks revenge against the protagonist.


In the ending of "The World Is Not Enough," James Bond manages to save the day by stopping the villain, Renard, from detonating a nuclear bomb in Istanbul. Bond also rescues Elektra King, who had been held captive by Renard. Unfortunately, Elektra is revealed to be the mastermind behind the plot, seeking revenge for her father's death. Bond ultimately kills Elektra in self-defense, and the film concludes with Bond sailing away on a boat with Dr. Christmas Jones.
