James Bond is sent into North Korea to take out a rogue North Korean Colonel. Bond takes the place of a man the Colonel does business with. Bond placed everything in place but just as Bond was about to do the job, the Colonel finds out who Bond is. He was about to kill Bond when Bond placed his plan in motion which caused enough confusion for him to get away. He then chases the Colonel. In the end, the Colonel goes into the river and is believed to be dead. Bond is captured by the Colonel’s father, a General who then holds Bond for over a year. One day, the General takes Bond to the border where he is traded for the Colonel’s right hand man. When Bond reaches M, he is knocked out. He then wakes up in a detention cell and M tells him, he was not rescued he was extracted. It seems they were getting reports of confidential in formation coming out of the prison where Bond was being held, so they assume Bond was spilling his guts which he denies doing. He then tells M that the Colonel somehow found out who he is from someone in the West who was giving the Colonel info, his father, the General confirmed it. Bond deduces that this person made it appear he was giving information so that they would trade him for the Colonel’s man which is what it was all about. M tells Bond is no longer an agent and is on his way to their detention center. But Bond gets out and then goes to see the Chinese who want to see the Colonel’s man dead because he killed some Chinese officials which he was captured for. They then send Bond to Cuba where they say the man is now. Bond learns he is at a special clinic where some unusual treatments are going on. Bond goes to the clinic and finds him undergoing a treatment to change his appearance but Bond interferes and tries to get him to tell him who his inside source is but he gets away and the clinic is blown up by a woman Bond met before going to the clinic. Bond takes something off the man and learns it’s diamonds which are marked as being the property of Gustav Graves a Norweigian who supposedly found diamonds in an ice field but Bond says they look like African conflict diamonds which was among the things the Colonel was in to. So Bond decides to check out Graves. After their first meeting which was not exactly cordial, Bond gets a message to meet M and he tells her what he thinks of Graves. She allows him to pursue his suspicions.
1986 – Soviet Russia has been arming international terrorists with chemical weapon technology, and a chemical weapons plant in the mountains is the target of James Bond and his closest compatriot, Alec Trevelyan. Infiltrating the compound, they are spotted and Alec is captured. When a ruthless Soviet officer, Oromov, executes Trevelyan, James pulls off a spectacular escape and succeeds in blowing up the compound. Now in 1995, he is assigned to tail former Red Air Force jet jockey Xenia Onatopp, who is working for a Russian crime syndicate known as Janus, but he is unable to stop her from stealing a powerful helicopter – a theft initially dismissed as a possibility by MI6’s new leader, a woman who is a bureaucratic bean counter who, despite her acidic responses to grumbling from her ticked-off men, is having to learn her job as she goes, and who has to trust James Bond’s instincts after a nuclear accident occurs over a Russian region housing the tracking station for a weapons satellite known as Goldeneye. James must track down the stolen gunship and all leads to a second Goldeneye system, and along the way he is horrified to find the true identity of the Janus syndicate, which leads to a spectacular running pursuit from the stolen gunship through a Soviet army prison to a wild street chase involving a tank and confrontation with a Soviet missile train, and eventually a showdown in the jungles of Cuba.
In a near-futuristic society, late teen Alex DeLarge is the leader of a gang of thugs – his “droogs” – who commit acts of ultra-violence, often with sexual components, without any regard for their victims, and purely because it strikes their collective fancies. These acts are largely fueled by drug use. In addition, Alex is a lover of music, especially that of Ludwig van Beethoven, which, when he listens to it during these acts, intensifies his pleasure, and in turn inspires him to commit further such acts. He does not tolerate any challenge to his leadership by his droogs. Although the authorities in general know of Alex’s delinquency, they have so far been unable to catch him in the act of his crimes, until one night after a sexual assault of an older woman. Alex and Alex alone is charged, convicted and incarcerated. But Alex sees what he believes is an easy way out when the government looks for subjects to participate in a new rehabilitation therapy, the end result being release from prison after the two week therapy. The therapy ends up having consequences that Alex did not envision. The questions become how Alex will function, and how others will act toward him in his changed state.
