There needed to be a "bad one", which is not a good idea (anymore ?) as it is bound to raise conflicts in an international blockbuster. That would have been too obvious an a bit warmed up with Irak, so they chose NK. As Russia or China cannot be the scape goats anymore, Korea takes the turn. It should almost be seen as an honour, as the small NK know become a world-class rival for the US, after its 2 neighbouring (ex-)communist giants.

Don't get me wrong, I don't praise this kind of initiative. NK overreacted as usual, but legitimately, I think. I am not sure that showing a farmer tilling a field with a cow, is far from the reality though.

Anyway, aren't James Bond films British rather than American ?

Yeah, but isn't Tony Blair doing everything Mr. Bush tells him to?

Yep, Tony is very obedient. Not all British are happy with this.

Actually, it is very difficult to find bad boys. 007 battled all of them: Russians, Chinese, nearly all other former communist countries, evil billionaires, terrorists, drug cartels. Hm, how about aliens?

Nah, the film makers are just building up to the ultimate bad guys - an army of angry postal workers. The end of Bond. . .

Why dont they use the Taliban or Usama Bin Laden as a baddy in a bond movie. They never used them or we can do Iraq.

And with aliens that kills the partial realism of 007

Hm, angry postal workers.... I'd join that army, lol.

Aliens: just a joke.

Osama or Iraq: depicting Islam-related persons or countries as evil is quite inappropriate, even if it's just 007. That applies to all religions IMHO.
