1. Spy Report: A Shot In The Dark

    By daniel on 2002-03-10

    Today our sources Vanquish and Brosnan's Hair check in with details on a major scene in Bond 20. I must warn you, there are major plot elements in this report, so you'll have to highlight to read.

    Spoiler Warning (Highlight To Read)

    The MI6 building at Vaxhaul Cross comes under attack. No, this isn’t The World Is Not Enough, this is Bond 20.

    Agent James Bond 007 leaps into action. Racing through the building, leaving dead ‘terrorists’ in his wake, 007 races to save the life of his boss, M. On his way Bond comes across Charles Robinson, dead. He continues on to find M. But he gets there almost too late. And in a desperate bid to save her life Bond shoots M in the shoulder, thus throwing her to the floor and taking her out of the line of fire.

    And then everything freezes…

    Okay, I used a tad of creative license there. I don’t know the full details to this scene, only that Bond does find Robinson dead and he does shoot M in the shoulder to save her life.

    However, it is the fact that everything freezes that should have you asking questions. Why does everything freeze? Well Bond is actually in a Virtual Reality machine! And as soon as M is shot, the program freezes (perhaps a programming bug?)

    How the scene plays out on screen we’re yet to see. Hopefully as a part of the suspense we won’t know Bond is in a VR Machine until it freezes.

    For reference, the Virtual Reality set has been built and pictures on the official site have been from this scene.

    Some excellent details there! A big thanks to Vanquish and Brosnan's Hair for helping out with this report! Please discuss it in this thread of the Bond 20 Forums! See you there!
