Reviews:  Carole Bouquet, who played Melina, the main Bond-girl, had a deathly aversion to water, so much so that the crew devised a way of simulating her being underwater yet she wasn't! The crew had it that she was underwater, just that the water wasn't there! They put in bubbles where the snorkel was, you know, double exposure. When I was the film in Blu-ray, the sharpest resolution there was, the scene came up and you could not tell the difference. She actually looked like she was underwater. All I can say is WOW!

When 007 and Melina travel underwater with the Neptune, 2-man submarine, as they come out with their suits, Bond talks over the intercom system that, since they have under 10 minutes of oxygen, no talking except when necessary. Then Bond blows it by talking unnecessarily! Shut up 007! She doesn't care what the disarming trait was for the ATAC system that they want. Sheesh!

Still, I rate this movie higher star rating than most 007 films!
