Man... does anyone remember "the compound" level where you would put on infinite health / ammo and just go to town on those guys for hours! Multi-player?? Golden Gun! No being Odd Job!.... wait... what? This was also a movie?!

My favorite Bond and one of my favorite films of all time. The villainous lineup of Trevelyan, Xenia, Ourumov and Boris is just sublime, it has stylish locations (an awesome use of the standard casino scene), great action scenes by tank and car and plane and train, a cool plot by the villain, introduces the new M with a bang, and has a fantastic opening and climax and just so much style and verve. Pierce Brosnan's debut as Bond couldn't have come out better. (Ytadel's series ranking: #1 of 24)

Who the hell gave U2 the chance to do the music for this, the first half has some of the most garbage 90s music imaginable. Second half of the film I guess Bono and the Edge passed out from smelling their own farts and it’s fine.

This is one of my favorite Bond movies. Maybe it's cause I played the video game religiously or maybe it's cause I have huge crushes on every chick in it or maybe it's cause it's just downright cool. Sean Bean is ridiculously cool.

I had fond memories of this. Now I'd say it's good, not great. No one had thus far been able to dethrone Connery, the quintessential Bond, or probably ever will (which of course makes the tagline ironic) but Brosnan - with his slick look and a talent for being both serious spy and a cheeseball (when required) - comes closest. And, also thanks to Famke J. and Sean Bean, 'GoldenEye' is by far the best of his four, even venturing to add a bit of character depth to what's mostly dumb (solid) action.

Written as a star vehicle for Timothy Dalton, the plot panders to the more serious approach he brought to the role. That's probably why this is the only Brosnan-led Bond film that isn't total garbage (which isn't to say Brosnan wasn't a good Bond, he was. He was just never given much to work with). Campbell sours things a bit with attempts at over-the-top camp comedy, and just a terribly cheap soundtrack, but overall this is a great globe-trotting adventure. The N64 game is better, however.

Exemplifies, depicts and struggles with the many transitions that occurred during the 1990s: the exit from the Cold War and the opening of the Iron Curtain; the advent of the internet age; changing attitudes to gender relations, especially in terms of workplace rules; and the move from miniatures and models to computer-generated imagery. Poor Tina Turner title song, written by "Bono" and "The Edge". Ends (prophetically) by mentioning Guantanamo as a nice spot for some romantic debriefing.

Revitalizes all the classic Bond elements: James has a real emotional arc. His relationship to M gains depth. The Bond girl is strong-willed and independent. The action scenes are creative and now feels natural in the narrative. Sharp cinematography. Even the puns are above average. Brosnan manages to display the confidence of Connery, the elegance of Moore and the ruthless edge of Dalton. The result is the ultimate Bond movie. Sadly the next 3 movies would never approach this level of quality.

At one point in this film, M says to Bond: "I think you're a sexist, misogynist dinosaur. A relic of the Cold War." Frankly, it's hard to disagree with her. At least the writers knew what they were up against. Besides, GoldenEye is entertaining, Brosnan and Bean play their parts well, and the film is a perfectly fine way to spend a couple of hours. I don't think focusing too much on the sexual politics of it all does a whole lot of good.

Years later, still caught in the Cold War era. With the Russkies unavailable, it seems the franchise didn't know what to do with itself and thus stuck to what it knew. Half a decade removed from the dissolution of the Soviet Union, its reluctance to move on is either charming or embarrassing. Likely, a bit of both.

For me, GoldenEye comes with all of the best features in a Bond film: the charismatic, suave secret agent, action-packed fights and stunts, all the allure of espionage, and female characters that can actually contribute to the plan. Great performances, classic Bond style, and Pierce Brosnan driving a tank in a suit, you can't help but love GoldenEye!

Brosnan slips seamlessly into the Bond role & the romantic lead is not only beautiful, but a surprisingly good actress as well. Onatopp also makes for a great henchman & it's a great idea to have the villain be another Double O. The Russian accents may not be all there, but the characters are some of Bond's best. The only problem is the storyline which drags in the first hour; is filled w/ the usual large plotholes (how does the tank get in front of the train?); & rolls out too many tropes.

In Pierce Brosnan's first appearance as James Bond, the series was revitalized. It went back to a less campy, more suave and sophisticated Bond. Goldeneye has great action, a super cool story, and some of Bond's greatest moments since Sean Connery played the super spy. Awesome!

Roger Moore is alleged to have commented that he and Connery would be forgotten after Brosnan's Bond - Based on this he may have a point. Brosnan owes far more to Connery's view of Bond but brings Moore's charm - a heady mix. Great stunts, a powerful villain and co-stars. For my money, Tina Turner doesn't quite make the grade with the main theme, other than that ... Bond is back.

This is a solid film that has good action set-pieces and good comedy as well. They mix both without doing anything too over the top or stupid with either. It showed promise for a Brosnan Bond, but the writers of the later films never could match up to this again.

Undeservingly underrated, Brosnan's first Bond is the best instalment of the franchise in nearly two decades and since only matched by Campbell's own 'Casino Royale' and 'Skyfall'. The supporting cast (Bean, Cumming, Janssen, Coltrane and Dench in particular) is borderline great and that opening shot sets the scene like no other.

It holds up quite well. The score and the editing are not impressive. But Brosnan is a good Bond and the villains, especially Famke, are great. And the tank scene is still amazing. It is however shocking how many innocent Russian soldiers Bond kills in his escape in Moscow.

I don't really like James Bond movies. I saw this in Calcutta a long time ago and don't really remember it. The reason to comment on it here is that Pierce Brosnan plays Bond, but had previously parodied exactly that version of 'smooth' manly heroism in five seasons of "Remington Steele" - a transition that is as close as I can find to a second example of the genre of which 'Dark Star' is the first: the parody that comes before the 'serious' version, made by the same people (in some sense).

I've always considered this a solid action film, but not really a proper Bond film. Maybe it's the passing of time, but I've warmed up to it, as it does have a post- cold war feel to it, but it's also surprisingly outdated with it's emphasis on multimedia-era PCs and sadly the finale is about as bland as they come. I've enjoyed Eric Serra's music in Besson films, but he was a wrong choice and his score lessens the impact of action scenes. Brosnan is good, as is the supporting cast (once again).

I've never been a big James Bond fan, but I've got good memories with this one.

I've seen them all, in a way or another, mostly from television.

Bond is back, in the long-awaited (eight years) debut of Brosnan as legendary Brit agent 007. There's a spectacularly impossible stunt to start things out in familiar territory and lots more noisy (if prolonged) action pieces. Brosnan (who looks great in a tux) is slyly self-aware that his character is more myth than man and Janssen does a suitably over-the-top job as bad Bond girl Xenia Onatopp. Tina Turner sings the dreary title track.

Goldeneye is an entertaining Bond film with Pierce Brosnan filling in nicely. The action sequences are well staged including a few particularly memorable stunts, a few fun gadgets, some good one-liners from Brosnan, and the Bond girls are actually pretty good too. A solid return-to-form following a six-year absence for the character.

This movie is very good for what it is, but I also think it really shows quite clearly how far we have come culturally from the mid-90's, I think in a good way. People expect a higher level of realism, more depth and nuance than this film delivers, but for its style it is quite a ride.

Martin Campbell successfully re-launched the 007 franchise TWICE. In the first time, we get a pilot-picture that promised us a Bond that has some age behind him, chains from the Roger Moore-era broken free, and action-narrative energy supplied behind the camera by someone OUTSIDE Eon productions. Too bad the later Brosnan-007 entires progressively worse, bloated, and goofy.

Goldeneye was the Bond film of my generation and my personnel introduction to the franchise. Pierce Brosnan balances the brutality and sophistication of Sean Connery with the humour and charm of Roger Moore perfectly. The supporting cast is strong also with great performances from Sean Bean and Famke Janssen in particular. The set pieces are great and the pre-title bungee sequence is one of my favourite Bond moments. Goldeneye will forever be one of my favourite and most sentimental Bond films.

Not the absolute height of camp, but just a bit too goofy to take seriously. In that regard, only the action sequence involving the tank hits that perfect note of absurd fun.

Gratuitous explosions and cheap action aside, it was a great film. The stoic form of Peirce Brosnan does detract from the Bond persona somewhat but was acceptable in this film. And as for the opening it was a true to James Bond form...naked women's forms that is. And they weren't afraid to shy away from a little shadow or silhouette of a nipple (it bothers me that women have been de-nippled by everything from the bra industry to the film industry)

While overshadowed in popularity and acclaim by its video game adaptation, and quite a shadow that is to dwell in, Goldeneye the movie version is to thank for an extremely iconic cast of characters, settings, set pieces and atmosphere. The 90's European dance club and fashion inspired look captures a certain time and setting perfectly. It's just so slick and tight and wet, like a Ferrari launching off a Lamborghini onto a private yacht with a helicopter pad and a soundtrack from Sade and Seal.

Puts every other Bond film to shame with its atmospheric locations, top-notch cast, slick dialogue and clever plot. For once, Bond strikes the perfect balance between suave cad and ruthlessly efficient agent. The trio of villains are some of the best in the series, and the big stunts all live up to expectations. My only criticism is the choice to have all the Russians speaking perfect English to each other. Brosnan effaced all those cringe-worthy Moore memories; sadly it was a one-time deal.
