There is just too much that is too silly about Goldeneye and too many mistakes in the making. It is not as actively stupid as some Bond films have been, but it is well below average in intelligence for the already not too cerebral series.
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.
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.
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.
