  • This is Pierce Brosnan’s first movie as James Bond 007. Here, after a deadly satellite weapon system falls into the wrong hands, Bond races to Russia to search for the stolen access codes to the space weapon “Goldeneye,” which can fire an electromagnetic pulse toward Earth. At the same time Bond is pitted against colleague-turned-enemy Alec Trevelyan.

    There are some nice action sequences and thrilling stunt scenes, and Alex Trevelyan (Sean Bean) and Xenia Onatopp (Famke Janssen) make a pretty notorious team of villains, deviously depicted who will have you rooting against. However, I thought the Russian formula in the plot is a little overused in the series by this time. And, while Brosnan makes a good action hero, he didn’t quite have the charm, class and suaveness as Connery and Moore had as Bond. The one-liners and wit that defines Bond were few in this film.

    Overall, it is not a bad Bond entry. It’s an OK action film, but minus some of the classic 007 flavor.
