MacGuffin in TWINE
I don't know if this topic already exists but I wonder something about TWINE.
In her cell, M uses the batteries from the clock in front of her to make the locator card work, which is a brilliant idea because it shows she's able to react in the field like a genuine operative. But immediately after getting the signal, 007 is taken prisoner by Elektra's goons because of Bull's betrayal and directly brought to Maiden's Tower, which turns out to be the place where M is kept in.
Wouldn't it have been much more subtle in terms of screenwriting having M sending the signal and then making Bond rescue her on his own considering he's the heroe ?
It's not really a matter of relevance because Zukovsky was also there when the signal was sent. It doesn't destroy the concept of having someone attacking Elektra's lair. Nevertheless, I clearly would have preferred a useless character like Bull not to be in the script and Bond being the one to surprise Elektra (and being tortured anyway just after his arrival because this scene is very cool indeed).
Does anyone see my point ?
