Goldeneye never loses sight what this film is about. The spy game is all about secrets and betrayal and if you are a spy - keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Goldeneye epitomizes that phrase.

The interplay between Alec and Bond, the cast of oddball characters, the great set pieces. GoldenEye enjoyable for its entire runtime.

With a dynamite opening reel that showcases the series renewed vigor, GoldenEye is two hours of well-executed thrills, high-tech mayhem and one-of-a-kind comedy.

GoldenEye, the 17th in the series and first in six years, gives 007 a new lease on life. Pierce Brosnan is no Sean Connery, but he is the best Bond since Connery started it all with Dr. No in 1962.

It's a thoroughly fun film overall, though, and ranks as something of a forgotten gem 25 years later.

With the ideal Bond, a worthy adversary, gorgeous Bond Babes and a director skilled enough to fully maximize their potential, this stands atop the rest as the best Bond film.
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10
November 2, 2015
It contains four or five humorous, intricately choreographed action sequences that -- while not as riveting as similar episodes in True Lies or Die Hard With a Vengeance -- are enjoyable on that idiot level that even critics possess.

James Bond, the British spy with a taste for the high life and a license to kill, comes back in surprisingly hardy and supple form.

Brosnan's right there, born to play the part. Perhaps by design, he captures a bit from each predecessor -- the panache of Sean Connery, the cheeky humor of Roger Moore, the serious grit of Timothy Dalton.

At the most basic, crowd-pleasing level, Goldeneye does the trick.
October 28, 2015
In GoldenEye, [Brosnan's] performance achieves darker, Conneryesque tones. And the movie's relatively realistic take on Bond -- realistic, that is, by the series' flamboyant standards -- helps to give his work weight.

James Bond's latest outing is big, and it's brash -- in short, it's double-oh-fun.
October 28, 2015
Basically, James, GoldenEye wasn't bad. A bit long and not the sexiest or most thrilling Bond movie. But a Bond movie nonetheless, and far from an embarrassment like Moonraker.
October 28, 2015
Under the direction of Martin Campbell, GoldenEye is a film that respects its predecessors. No new heights are scaled here, but it's nevertheless a handsome, well-engineered film that gets the job done.

October 28, 2015
In GoldenEye, one of the very best of the Bond movies, Pierce Brosnan knows he's trying on something mythical.
October 28, 2015
Exuding charm, charisma and managing to convey a darker side to Bond without ever resorting to Timothy Dalton's pouty approach, [Brosnan] became the first actor to give Connery a run for his money.

Check your political correctness at the door and have a blast -- this is the best Bond since The Spy Who Loved Me.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 28, 2015
Pierce Brosnan, on his first mission as 007, quickly established himself as the best Bond since Sean Connery and makes a fetish out of the old-fashioned values of loyalty and patriotism.

October 28, 2015
Walking a fine line between '60s cultural kitsch and '90s entertainment hype, GoldenEye delivers some slick, generation-spanning thrills and proves that while Bond may be something of a political and social dinosaur, there's still life in the old boy yet.

Bond is still a misogynist dinosaur, but Brosnan makes him irresistible fun.
