Как смотреть видео
– It’d be a pretty cold bastard who didn’t want revenge for the death of someone he loved
– I don’t think the dead care about vengeance.
– This man and I have some unfinished business.
– The first thing you should know about us is that we have people everywhere.
– What the hell is this organization Bond? How can they be everywhere and we know nothing about them.
– This is the world’s most precious resource; we need to control as much of it as we can.
– Name check: Dominic Greene.
– He’s a person of extreme interest.
– We’ve already begun destabilising the government.
– You know who Greene is and you want to put us in bed with him.
– Yeah, you’re right, we should just deal with nice people.
Get in!
– All right.
– Careful with this one, Mr.Bond. She won’t go to bed with you unless you give her something she really wants.
– I think someone wants to kill you.
– You two do make a charming couple though. You’re both…what’s the expression…damaged goods.
– It seems we’re both using Greene to get to someone.
– You lost somebody?
– I did.
– You catch whoever did it?
– No. Not yet.
– Tell me when you do….. I’d like to know how it feels.
– We need you to get rid of him
– When you can’t tell your friends from your enemies it’s time to go.
– Right now I think you’re the only person I can trust.
– James, move your ass.
– I wish I could set you free but your prison is in there.
– You don’t have to worry about me.

Грамматика английского языка

Фраза из трейлера: “We need to control as much of it as we can”.
Much и many могут использоваться вместо a lot of. Much используется с неисчисляемыми существительными, а many – с исчисляемыми. Их можно использовать без существительных, если смысл понятен.

Мы можем использовать as much / many as когда говорим о количестве и хотим сравнить вещи или людей которые более или менее равны. Сравните:

Обратите внимание на отсутствие двойного отрицания в английском языке.
How can they be everywhere and we know nothing about them.

Обратите внимание на совместное использование present perfect и наречия already.
We‘ve already begun destabilising the government.
При использовании present perfect есть связь прошлого с настоящим.
He has gone to the Moon. – Он улетел на Луну и сейчас он там.
He went to the Moon. – Он летал на Луну, но сейчас он на Земле.
