Execs at MGM/UA can rest easy: the Bond franchise has been successfully salvaged.

Brosnan, as the best-moussed Bond ever to play baccarat in Monte Carlo, makes the character's latest personality transplant viable (not to mention smashingly photogenic), but the series still suffers the blahs.

Palo Alto Weekly

Instead of continuing as a comedy of thrills, Goldeneye rapidly disintegrates into an endless series of gratuitous explosions and suspense-free motor vehicle chases, each one louder and less interesting than its predecessor.

Pierce Brosnan turns in a fine performance, establishing himself as a fine heir to the Bond throne. The plotting isn't as solid as in the best Bond films, but this is still a good time.
| Original Score: 3/5

If we apply high standards we expect from classic Bond films, Goldeneye is a failure.

Supercharged with spectacular, thundering, brain-numbing fun.

James Bond is back and, if he isn't better than ever, he's certainly better than he has been recently.

[Brosnan] hits the ball out of the park.

They have given James a new car here, but it's the same old vanity plate, the one that should read: Je Me Souviens.

A bold attempt to reinvent the character itself, one that tied in with the post-cold war era.

traditional enough to leave 007's character alone, but intelligent enough to deal with the fact that he is in new surroundings

Though GoldenEye is an acceptable Bond picture, it's a reasonable facsimile more than any kind of original, and it's hard not to feel a certain weariness while watching it unfold.

Perhaps the best entry in the series since The Spy Who Loved Me.

Watching the film, I got caught up in the special effects and the neat stunts, and I observed with a certain satisfaction Bond's belated entry into a more modern world.

Brosnan uses them well, slipping comfortably into the role of Bond. It's just unfortunate that his debut film couldn't have been more interesting.

It is Bond's encounters with various villains and his romantic interest -- and all those wild stunts -- that fans pay to see. And they won't be disappointed.
