The World Is Not Enough

Big villain: Elektra King
The plan: To nuke Istanbul and destroy the oil pipelines of competitive multinationals.

Oil heiress Elektra King belatedly provides Bond with a top tier female antagonist, although inevitably sex clouds the picture in a way that it didn’t with, say, Karl Stromberg. This complicates the third reel showdown which turns out to be part exposition, part awkward meeting of exes. While Bond tries to dismiss it all as a bad case of martini goggles, Elektra gets on with torturing him and explaining her plan. Never has a garroting been so saucy.

Giveaway speech: “It is my oil – mine. And my family’s. It runs in my veins, thicker than blood. I’m going to redraw the map and when I’m done the whole world will know my name.”

What he should have done: Strangled him with the strangle device.

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
