Well finally. A movie studio with some guts. Here’s the theme song in the front of the new James Bond film ‘Quantum of Solace’.
"I'm double oh seven baby.
I don't mean maybe.
You wanna make jihad baby.
I'd advise you against.
Oh the price of liberty
Might be death baby,
But I'm telling you baby,
Freedom makes sense.
And the price of an apple,
Yeah the price of an apple,
The price of an apple,
Is oh twenty cents.
Yeah the price of an apple baby,
Is oh twenty cents."
And it doesn’t end there. Catch this traditional Bond prologue before the music. From the Heelers Diaries.
The scene begins mundanely enough but quickly switches to maximum tempo.
We see the famous Agent 007 sitting boredly in his seat on a long haul flight from
He is enduring the typical flyer's nightmare.
The passenger in the seat beside him is a High Court Judge who insists on making the most insufferably monotonous conversation throughout the flight.
You can tell Bond thinks he's a crushing bore.
"In all the furore over Bush's War On Terror," the Judge opines, "we run the risk of forgetting altogether about human rights."
At this moment there is a great commotion in the back of the plane.
Shouts of "Allah U Akbar" ring out.
Five terrorists are running up the aisle towards the cockpit.
Bond leaps into action grappling with the lead terrorist.
The British secret agent is thrown backwards against the cockpit door.
The terrorist grabs the High Court Judge and puts a knife to his throat.
The other terrorists look on laughing.
Bond addresses the High Court Judge.
"Should I read them their rights?"
This is possibly the funniest line in any Bond film and it contains a subtle message for the viewers.
The Judge gurgles something incomprehensible.
Bond and the lead terrorist lock eyes.
The terrorist is laughing but there is a tinge of fear in his laughter.
"You know what?" sez Bond.
"What?" sneers the terrorist.
"Allah isn't really that Akbar," sez Bond.
He pulls his gun and shoots the five terrorists.
There's no clever manoeuvring. No more chit chat. He just shoots them.
With insolent skill.
A bullet for each.
Right between the eyes.
All five go down.
Bond sits back in his seat.
The Judge faints.
An adorable air hostess approaches.
"Meesthair Bont," she says breathlessly. "You are amazing. If there's anything I can get you. Anything..."
Bond says: "A dry martini on the rocks, shaken not stirred."
The main body of the plot concerns his discovery that the chief of Al Qaeda in London is working with the Iranians on a plan to detonate suitcase nuclear weapons in cities all over Britain and Ireland.
It outta be a hoot of a movie.
