    GoldenEye probably has the worst actors a Bond movie has ever had. The dialogues are crude and almost all of Bonds stunts are extremely unrealistic. The Pierce Brosnan movies are a shame for the series, yet GoldenEye is one of the best in his career. The reason why I give it at least 4 points is: rememberable scenes (bungee jump, Judi Dench's first 'M' appearance, Death scene of the main villain) and as action crime it's not a complete failure. You can watch it, but you do better with Connery's, Dalton's or Craig's Bond. Expand

    This is the first Bond film that is self-aware, that has lost its innocence and the simplicity of its world view, and has some understanding of the absurdity and sadness of its hero.

    Also, there's more action in Goldeneye than in previous 007 entries -- enough to keep a ninety-minute film moving at a frantic pace. Unfortunately, this movie isn't ninety-minutes long -- it's one-hundred thirty, which means that fully one-quarter of Goldeneye is momentum-killing padding.
  3. When the action is extreme, GoldenEye is supercharged with spectacular, thundering, brain-numbing fun.
