“- James. What an unpleasant surprise.
– We aim to please.”

Alec (Sean Bean) and James Bond (Pierce Brosnan)

James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) and Natalya (Izabella Scorupco) search in vain for the base of Alec aka Janus (Sean Bean). Until she appears before their eyes, hidden in a huge water tank.

Gradually the water empties and the huge antenna controlling the GoldenEye satellite appears. Alec wants to use it to erase the traces of his digital crime and also to turn England back to the stone age by erasing all digital records.

James Bond and Natalya will do everything they can to stop him, one by wreaking havoc, the other by reprogramming the satellite, thus preventing his ex-colleague Boris (Alan Cumming) from finishing the job.

It all ends when Alec, after a heated fight with 007, is crushed to death by the radio telescope structure.

GoldenEye grossed $356 million at the box office.
