Critic Reviews

Consensus: The first and best Pierce Brosnan Bond film, GoldenEye brings the series into a more modern context, and the result is a 007 entry that's high-tech, action-packed, and urbane.
  • 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. More...
  • 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. More...
  • 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. More...
  • Richard Kiel, you are missed. More...
  • 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. More...
  • Director Campbell keeps matters bowling along and even manages to recapture something of the look of the earlier films. More...
  • Suffers the blahs. More...
  • Supercharged with spectacular, thundering, brain-numbing fun. More...
  • They have given James a new car here, but it's the same old vanity plate, the one that should read: Je Me Souviens. More...
  • A reasonable facsimile more than any kind of original, and it's hard not to feel a certain weariness while watching it unfold. More...

  • Pierce Brosnan's debut as James Bond is left in the hands of Martin Campbell, and boy does he get it right.

  • A good come back for Bond here...Brosnan is actually a good Bond but this was the only decent Bond he made if you ask me. There are some really nice...
