James Bond is called into action after Russian satellite weapon systems disappear during an attack on a base in Siberia. He discovers that the theft is orchestrated by the organization Janus, led by his former colleague from the secret service, Alec Trevelyan. Bond is sent to Russia to gather information about Janus and to find out their plans with the stolen weapon technology.

Bond meets Natalya Simonova, a Russian programmer, who helps him penetrate a Russian bank where crucial information is located. Together, they uncover that Janus intends to use the stolen weapon technology, called GoldenEye, to trigger an electromagnetic pulse that would disable all electronics in London. This would cause chaos and enable Janus to control world economies.

Bond finds himself in danger when he is exposed and captured by Trevelyan. He is subjected to torture, but eventually manages to escape and kill Trevelyan. He then teams up with Natalya to stop Janus and neutralize GoldenEye.

In a dramatic finale, Bond reaches the base where GoldenEye is located. He must confront Xenia Onatopp and other enemies who try to prevent the successful completion of the mission. Bond eventually manages to neutralize GoldenEye and prevent its activation, saving London and the world from disaster.
