A View To A Kill

Big villain: Max Zorin
Working for: Zorin Industries
The plan: To monopolise the global tech industry by blowing up Silicon Valley – much like Lex Luthor in Superman. That’s Plan A. Plan B is probably “to hide Bill Gates’ glasses”.

Giveaway speech: “We are now in the unique position to form an international cartel to control not only production, but distribution of these microchips. There is one obstacle – Silicon Valley in San Francisco.”

What he should have done: Shot him in the head. Like in Deerhunter.

4 RE: ?
It is because the new Bond "is smart and has great plot and the vilains aren't silly" so they couldn't find such a moment in the new bond films... More
