Top Customer Reviews
The feel of "Goldeneye" is rather dark and serious, although there are comical moments strewn throughout the movie (so it's not quite as stiff as either of Dalton's Bond movies). There are a wide array of characters featured in the movie, all of whom are thoroughly enjoyable, and well written. The actors playing them are especially entertaining to watch. Kudos to Izabella Scorupco, who is not only gorgeous, but plays the part of Natalya very memorably. Famke Janssen is also magnificent as Onatopp, and there has not been any Bond villian quite as quirky or devilish as Onatopp since (what Bond villainess has ever licked Bond's face, and then beaten him up? Just Onatopp!). Pierce Brosnan, of course, fits right in as James Bond, and manages to combine elements of a dark edge with a touch of a light side.
"Goldeneye" works very well as a Bond movie. The plot is intruiging, and moves along at a perfect pace, keeping the viewer interested.Read more ›
- UPDATE ON THIS RELEASE -
There's what appears to be later printings of this disc that is said to have the WS side 16:9 enhanced (covers and such the same, but with "16:9 widescreen" in the back specs instead of plain ol' "widescreen") . It is unknown if it uses the LD master blown to 16:9 or uses the film master used on the 1999 SE release.
Next is the 1999/2000 Special Edition, released when they were putting other bond titles on DVD for the first time in this SE series. Unlike the previous release, this one uses a digital remaster created from the film negative, is anamorphic 2.Read more ›
And, perhaps most importantly, the film itself LOOKS good. Martin Campbell deserves much credit for his directorial effort; the film is visually a world apart from predecessor John Glen's rather tepid later efforts.
It's difficult to call this film a classic, at least at the present time (it's still a relatively new film, after all) -- but my guess is that this Bond entry will stand up well to the test of time...The Man With The Golden Gun, it ain't!
