GoldenEyeDirector: Martin Campbell
Pierce Brosnan made his first appearance as James Bond in this action thriller, the 17th in the series (excluding the 1967 Casino Royale and the 1983 Never Say Never Again) featuring the suave British super-agent. As the story begins, Agent 007 and his partner, Agent 006 (Sean Bean), pull a daring raid on a chemical weapons plant in the Soviet Union; however, they are captured by Russian troops, and while Bond is able to escape, 006 is not so lucky. Several years later, the Soviet Union and the Cold War are a thing of the past, but Bond is still at work ferreting out evildoers everywhere. Xenia Onatopp (Famke Janssen), a beautiful but vicious villain working with the Russian Mafia, spearheads the theft of the controls to GoldenEye, a high-tech satellite weapons system, and with her gunmen, she kills most of the soldiers and guards at a top-secret military facility in the process. Bond joins forces with Natalya Simonova (Izabella Scorupco), one of the base's few survivors, to help track down Onatopp's minions and the controls to GoldenEye, which can destroy all electronic circuits in a given area in a matter of seconds; however, in time, Bond discovers the true identity of the criminal mastermind who is behind this bid for unholy power and world domination -- none other than Alec Trevelyan, the man Bond once knew as 006. In addition to Brosnan, GoldenEye also marked another significant cast change for the Bond series -- Judi Dench made her debut as M, Bond's superior. Minnie Driver also has a cameo as a nightclub singer. Sadly, this was the last film in the Bond series for special-effects supervisor Derek Meddings, who died in the midst of production; the film was dedicated to him.

Good Bond movie. However the other Bond films after this...not that good.
Not a Bond fan, though this movie was actually good, liked the fight scenes and car chases, creepy performance from the bad guy. Even the game was fun.
This is the first and best of the Pierce Brosnan as Bond movies yet. It has the classic elements of a Bond movie: the sophisticated spy, the evil supervillain, and the beautiful love interest, but also has new, modern weapons, gadgets, and cars, as well as an updated soundtrack. A must-have for Bond fans!
Wow. When I got N64 and went to my friends house she had this game and I rented it from her. I liked the game so much I bought it. When it was on movie I bought it. When i watched this movie for the first time I found out how much fun fo a girl watching an James Bond movie for the first time. sean Bean who played in LORD OF THE RINGS as Bronomir, was really freekin scarry in this movie. He acted like a really good villan. And Famake Jassen she was awsome, even though she died rather lame....... But after you see this movie and played the video game. U know this is one movie u gotta have!
GOLDENEYE IS THE BEST JAMES BOND MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN.
