James Bond (Pierce Brosnan)

Under the control of MI6, the Royal Navy and the Russian army, James Bond is monitoring arms dealers in the middle of a market.

The American general quickly ordered a ground strike from the HMS Bedford to eliminate the traffickers and thus eradicate a huge threat.

Agent 007 will then do “his job”, to paraphrase M (Judi Dench). He’ll go after the criminals to intercept the plane and escape with it, before the missile reaches its destination.

James Bond manages to escape just in time, but not without further difficulties.
