Die Another Day

Question: In "The World Is Not Enough" Bond, using his intuition, correctly assessed that Elektra King had sided with the villain. So why did he never suspect for a second that Miranda Frost had done the same in this film?

Chosen answer: Bond's suspicions about Elektra King were triggered by his discovery that her head of security, Davidov, was working with Renard. With Miranda Frost, there was nothing that would have led Bond to believe she was a double agent working for Graves/Moon in any capacity other than her undercover MI6 assignment.

Question: Is it possible to stop your heart as it seems that James Bond did in this film when he is in hospital, or not? My partner believes that it's not possible.

Chosen answer: Consciously slowing one's own heart rate to barely beating (usually performed by a mystical guru-type character in film or literature) is a myth. It is possible to slightly slow the heartbeat with meditation and relaxation, but completely stopping and restarting it is impossible.

Question: In the hotel scene in China, Bond throws the ashtray at what is believed to be a mirror but is actually a 1 way mirror where the guys had cameras. Were they trying to shoot a sex tape or something?

Chosen answer: This was the 20th bond film and there are a number of references to previous films throughout. This scene references From Russia With Love, where agents of SPECTRE film Bond and Tatiana for their blackmail/murder/suicide plot to both kill Bond and steal the lektor decoder. Bond sees it coming this time, though - it's most likely just the Chinese security service keeping him under surveillance.

Question: What happened when Bond was fighting Zao in the Cuban clinic? He threw a bottle of flammable liquid at something on the wall, which seems to have activated a magnet of some sort. What was that system, and what is it intended for?

Chosen answer: When the bottle hit the machine it hit the on button, so it activated the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (or also known as MRI for short) machine which scans your body using very powerful magnets.

Question: What's the significance, if any, of Miranda Frost being stabbed through "The Art Of War"?

Shay

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.

Question: Towards the end of the film when Graves has been revealed to be Korean, why is he still using an English accent?
