Die Another Day

Bond is sent to Korea to check out the facilities there, and discovers there is are enough weapons and men to run a small war, headed by a Korean Colonel. He goes under cover but someone tips the Koreans off and Bond jumps in a hovercraft and engages in a typical Bond chase having detonated a bunch of C4 in the enemys' faces. He pushes the Korean colonel off the edge and into a massive waterfall and the man is pressumed dead. Then the man's father, unaware of his son's violent activities, turns up and has Bond tortured, and we see his pain during the title credits. Bond is tortured for 18 months. Then M trades for him with a Korean named Zao, but instead of a warm welcome back James is tranquilised and sent to an analysis facility. M thinks he revealed information about them and wants to detain him. But Bond escapes and tries to discover who framed him. Q supplies him with gadgets and he meets the stunningly attractive Jinx along the way. He pairs up with Miranda Frost and meets Gustav Graves, a man with a satellite he calls Icarus and claims it will help third world countries grow crops all year round. But Graves turns out to be the North Korean Colonel we saw 'die' at the beginning, and Frost is revealed to be working for Graves. Having escaped from the rays of Icarus it's up to Bond and Jinx to stop Graves from using his weapon to take over South Korea.

Plot hole: When James and Jinx sneak on Gustav's plane, Jinx heads for the cockpit. The pilot gets out of his seat and leaves, making it easy for Jinx to knock out the co-pilot and take over the plane. But what happens to the pilot? he never comes back, even when Miranda is pointing a sword at Jinx, nor when she is fighting to keep the plane flying. (01:49:30)

Chosen answer: Frost is proud of her martial skills and Sun Tzu's Art of War is considered to be one of the classic texts on warfare, but that's about as far as it goes.
