GoldenEye (1995)

GoldenEye (1995, GBR/USA) C-130m. SCOPE ** D: Michael Campbell. Starring Pierce Brosnan, Sean Bean, Izabella Scorupco, Famke Janssen, Joe Don Baker, Judi Dench, Robbie Coltrane, Tchéky Karyo, Gottfried John, Alan Cumming, Desmond Llewelyn, Samantha Bond, Minnie Driver, Martin Cambell. Disappointing return of the Bond franchise after a six-year hiatus. Brosnan is quite good in his first performance as 007, but plot - circling around a Russian general's attempt to use super-weapon in space - is derivative and hardly memorable. Some explosive action stunts and humor involving Q make it worthwhile, but the Bond feeling is almost completely gone. Monty Norman's legendary theme appears once during the film, for little more than a minute. Followed by TOMORROW NEVER DIES.
