One of the better Bonds; lots of cartoonish violence.

This is a nice, safe, Bond movie that is trying to please the masses. And it does work as a crowd pleaser. Not among the best Bond, but a solid debut for Brosnan and a worthy entry in the series.

Brosnan, however, looks set to stay. He'll never recapture the amused cool of the young Sean Connery, but he does overcome the handicap of looking like a humorless male model.

It doesn't completely lay Bond's psychological complexities naked, cold and bare. But "GoldenEye" can hardly be faulted for occasional concessions to casual entertainment - especially with a superior villain, taut action and an all-time Bond girl.

A smash hit that brought Bond back to life in a great big enjoyable way.

One of the more entertaining entries in the series, even if one thinks it's hogwash.

Se acerta ao trazer um Bond mais amadurecido, amargurado e auto-consciente, peca terrivelmente por elementos que beiram o trash, como alguns efeitos visuais pavorosos e uma atuação sensual, mas absurda, de Janssen.

I don't know whether the Bond series has a future, but if Xenia Onatopp ever returns to try for world domination, he may finally get a battle worth fighting.

There's something a mite pathetic about our culture still clinging to 007, but it's hard to deny that this is one of the most entertaining entries in the Bond cycle.

Brosnan is a stylish 007, the action is fast and the overall result hugely entertaining.

This is the best bond movie since On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

Lean, dark and graceful, Brosnan wraps his perfectly calculated accent around all the standard phrases without making us hear quotation marks.

Among the better of the 17 Bonds and, perhaps more important for today's audience, a dynamic action entry in its own right, this first 007 adventure in six years breathes fresh creative and commercial life into the 33-year-old series.

...a solid, sporadically electrifying entry in this ongoing series.

It's only slightly better than the movies of the last fifteen years or so, but that alone makes it worth seeing. License to Kill was so absolutely horrid, that I'm relieved to see an upswing.

Director Campbell keeps matters bowling along and even manages to recapture something of the look of the earlier films.
