Starred In Die Another Day (2002)
In a tribute to the Bond series legacy, Jinx is first seen rising out of the sea Honey Ryder style, in an orange bikini. Later than evening she retires to the bedroom with Bond in a scene full of sexual tension.
The next day Bond follows Jinx to a gene therapy clinic to track down the location of Zao. After a fight with Bond, Zao manages to escape in a helicopter with Jinx shooting Zao's bodyguards as they leave the island. Jinx then proceeds to escape from islands guards by jumping off a high cliff into the sea to a waiting boat.
Bond and Jinx meet up again at Gustav Graves' ice palace, where she attempts to kill Zao once more, but gets caught. After being rescued by Bond she eventually discloses her true identity.
Bond sends Jinx to contact Miranda Frost before calling for backup. However whilst Bond is involved in the car chase with Zao, Jinx is locked in Miranda's ice palace room when she turns out to be working with Graves. By the time Bond has dealt with Zao, Jinx is already unconscious after being nearly drown in freezing cold water, but he luckily manages to revive her.
Towards the end of the film Bond and Jinx enter Korea where they board Graves' Antonov. Whilst Bond is dealing with Graves, Jinx gets stuck into Miranda Frost. Just when Miranda thinks she has the upper hand, Jinx catches her off guard and stabs her in the chest. Meanwhile 007 uses Graves' own electrical suit to send him flying into one of the planes engines. Bond and Jinx manage to escape in a helicopter, narrowly avoiding crashing into the ground as it gets up to speed whilst falling through the sky!
At the end of the film they then share some intimate moments in a remote location covered in diamonds.
Working for the NSA, Jinx works on the same case as Bond, to kill Zao. An expert markswoman, pilot and supremely fit, Jinx makes it clear she is more than Bond's equal. Using her skills and streetwise ability she manages to kill Miranda Frost at the end of the film whilst Bond kills Graves.
Not one to be tied down to one situation or to one relationship, she comments to Bond that her relationships don't last. Unusually Jinx uses Bond as much for her own devices as Bond uses her, in her sexually aggressive attitude.
Halle Berry has the privilege of being the only Bond Girl to have won an Oscar for Best Actress; for her role in Monster's Ball. §
