I watched this movie on cable several years ago and have been searching for it for awhile, unfortunately I could never remember the name, until now. I am a true fan of Pierce Brosnan, since his debut as Remington Steele. 'Live Wire' allowed viewers to really see Brosnan. He was angry and vengeful, arrogant and cruel, comical and so very sexy, and physical. If not for starring Brosnan, the movie would have never been able to hold my attention. The music really sucked, and Silver well he has done much better work. I recommend this movie to anyone who can't get enough Brosnan. No collection of Brosnan films can be completed without 'Live Wire'.

Anybody who is a fan of Pierce Brosnan should definitely get a copy of the Unrated Version of Live Wire. It's worth the price of the movie just for the hot love scenes(and I mean hot!) between Pierce and Lisa Eilbacher.. .

As I was flipping through channels one night, I came across this movie just as it started (opening title) I was about to turn it off, and I started watching the first few minutes. I coudnt believe this movie grabbed my attention so quickly. I soon realized this movie was really good and watched the whole thing. My wife, being a Brosnan fan loved it too. So we bought a copy for our collection. This one is worth a look.

This movie is very underated, I happen to think it is better than every James Bond movie Bronson has made except for Golden Eye. Bronson's character in this movie has more depth than Bond's character which allowes Bronson to show of his acting talents and a wider range of emotions. In this movie he plays a capable, resoursful, tough, independent, bomb specialist. However, he is also a haunted drunk with a temper. Bronson's child drowned in a pool at their home while he was supposed to be watching her. The guilt has turned him into a hollow shell of the man he was. His wife has seperated from him and is now dating a senator who she works for. The senator, played by Ron Silver, is a great character. Silver does a supreb job of being sleazy and arrogant in this movie. The plot of this movie is unrealistic but intriguing nonetheless. Somehow a middle eastern terrorist/arms dealer has succeded in developing an explosive that exists in liquid form. For instance it looks like water but if you drink it you explode. The scenes where people explode are CRAZY!!! People get it really bad in this movie. The villian in this film is great, I have never heard of Ben Cross before and have never seen him in anything since this film and I do not know why since he plays such a great villian. His screen presence is astounding, he has even more presence than Brosnon. I lot of people gave this movie bad reviews but from reading what they wrote it seems to me that they had trouble following the plot. A lot happens in this movie very quickly and the plot involves a United States governent sponsored arms deal gone bad. In truth the movie could have spent more time detailing exactly what went wrong between the senators and the arms dealer (Ben Cross).Read more ›

My wife suggested this movie while browsing in the local video store mainly because of her fascination for all things Brosnan whom she has liked since she first saw Remington Steele.

Very reminiscent at the outset of Blown Away, the premise suggests that the US, so long immune from terrorist threat, may be subject to internal terroism. As the plot proceeds, one is reminded of the storyline of Die Hard where a supposed terrorist is nothing but a robber.

Themeans by which the terror is spread is an explosive which is detonated by the human body itself and thus leaves no trace. Brosnan appears as an explosives expertwith a personal life in turmoil instigated in the first instance by the accidental drowning of his young daughter in the family swimming pool and an estranged wife allegedly in the midst of a relationship with a senator.

It is clear from the start that there is no terorist in the sense of a freedom fighter but there is a ruthless murderer who uses a terrorist approach to secure a ten million dollar payoff which he has been swindled out of.

The story proceeds at a good pace with hardly any time to draw breath but really does not carry the viewer with it. The scenes are all shot in glorious sunshine which shows off the Washington tourist attractions to good effect but which also serves to reduce the impact of the story. Similarly the extensive inclusion of insiders in the senate reduces the plausibilty of the plot. I was disturbed too by the focus on the ease by which Brosnan's character concocts explosives using highly visible ingredients in order to defeat the baddies. Although I do not like the idea of censorship I do question the judgement of film producers to educate the weak minded in this way.

I was flipping through the channels when i got up one day and caught Live Wire in the middle of it. I loved every bit I got to watch and filled in the beginning, basically Danny O'Neil(Pierce brosnan)is an explosives expert who is dumfounded by mysterious, seemingly causless, explosions. The story is strong, and Brosnan's performance is impecablly brilliant, if I were a bigger Pierce Brosnan fan, I'd give Live Wire a 5 star rating.
