Action scenes

  1. 1. “ The World is Not Enough” Action Scenes
  2. 2. Action Scene #1 <ul><li>After the money explodes and kills King, Bond sees a woman on a boat who starts shooting at him. Bond quickly jumps on his high-tech, supercharged black boat and begins to chase after her. The shots were really shaky and they zipped in and out of scenes of Bond and then the woman. The camera angle switched between close ups of Bond and then the girl, then zoomed in and out of the chase scene. In some parts the camera would focus mainly on certain parts of Bonds boat (like the flames shooting out the back) or on Bond and his ridiculous stunts. </li></ul><ul><li>The various settings throughout this scene showed how fast paced the action was occurring and how dangerous the chase was. I liked the part where he drove his boat on land, got chased by the cops, drove through the restaurant (while honking his horn) and dove back into the water to chase the woman once again. </li></ul><ul><li>This chase scene supported the story by telling you that there was a dangerous man behind the whole operation and that he put enough fear in the woman to kill herself. </li></ul><ul><li>A similarity between this scene and others were all the crazy stunts that didn’t faze him at all. A difference is that Bond was fighting with a woman and most of his stunts were incorporated with his vehicle, they weren’t hand-to-hand. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Action Scene #2 <ul><li>Bond and Elektra go to check on one of her oil pipes and they have to go skiing down a huge mountain, then the “bad guys” associated with Renard find them. They come parachuting down on snowmobiles and create a huge chase/fight scene. In the end of the scene there is a huge avalanche, Bond and Electra narrowly escape. The scene starts out with the two of them leisurely skiing down the mountains with slow paced romantic music in the background. When the bad dudes come it shows a close up of them and of course the music picks up speed. The camera angle cuts in and out between Bond, the bad guys, and then the whole chase scene. </li></ul><ul><li>The setting changes from the wide open range of the whole mountain into the thick forest trees which the chase scene zooms in and out of. The settings make it seem like there is more danger and obstacles than in just a chase scene. </li></ul><ul><li>This action scene impacts the story line by showing that Renard is in fact after James Bond and he means business. It creates more of a danger for Bond. </li></ul><ul><li>Similar to the other scenes, this one has stuff blowing up and angles that go between Bond, the villains and the whole chase scene. It is different from the other scenes because this is the first time Bond knows Renard is after them and Renard actually sent a bunch of men out to go kill him. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Action Scene #3 <ul><li>Renard and Bond are fighting in the underground nuclear bomb room. Renard is trying to escape with the bomb and Bond is trying to stop him. Bond trying to prevent Renard creates a fight scene between the two. During this scene there is plenty going on including Christmas trying to escape, Bond getting shot at, and of course there is an explosion at the end that they just barely escape from. This scene has a lot going on at once and it switches back between the different characters struggles. The switching back and forth creates this sense of urgency and send adrenaline pumping through your veins. </li></ul><ul><li>The setting throughout this scene is sort of complicated in the way that you don’t exactly know they layout of the building or where they are. It switches back and forth a lot which tells you this is a fast occurring scene that’s supposed to get you excited. </li></ul><ul><li>This particular scene furthers the story map by letting you know there is more mystery and danger to the story (Renard now has a bomb and we don’t know why). </li></ul><ul><li>Similarly to the other scenes, stuff is blowing up and everything is really fast paced. Also the scene gives you just a little bit more to the story line like the other scenes have done. A difference in this scene is that this is the first time Bond comes face-to-face with Renard in this film. </li></ul>
