Times have changed. The Iron Curtain has fallen, giving way to a new world order, and the power plays of political agendas have been replaced by ruthless plots for profit. The war has changed... but the warriors remain the same. "The name is Bond, James Bond."
Ian Fleming's James Bond is back! Pierce Brosnan takes on the roll of the legendary Agent 007, as the most successful film franchise in history once again explodes onto the big screen.
"Goldeneye" is set firmly in the present day, swiftly changing political patterns turning old opponents into new best friends... and old allies into deadly enemies.
The 18th James Bond adventure was a runaway box-office success when released in 1995, thanks to the arrival of Pierce Brosnan as the fifth actor (following the departure of Timothy Dalton) to play the suave, danger-loving Agent 007. This James Bond is a bit more vulnerable and psychologically complex--and just a shade more politically correct--but he's still a formally attired playboy at heart, with a lovely Russian beauty (Izabella Scorupco) as his sexy ally against a cadre of renegade Russians bent on--what else?--global domination. There's also a seductive villainous with the suggestive name of Xenia Onatopp (Famke Janssen), and the great actress Judi Dench makes her first appearance as Bond's superior, M, who wisecracks about 007's "dinosaur" status as a globetrotting sexist. All in all, this action-packed Bond adventure provided a much-needed boost the long-running movie series, revitalizing the 007 franchise for the turn of the millennium. --Jeff Shannon

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. The action sequences in the movie are very well done, immensely enjoyable to watch. Eric Serra's music fits the movie PERFECTLY, and in my opinion, the producers should have invited him back for more films. His score adds a dark undertone to the movie, something which all of Brosnan's Bond movies afterwards would painfully lack.
Characterization is also important in the movie. One of the most memorable scenes has Bond sitting on a Caribbean beach at sunset, staring out at the ocean, and thinking about his inevitable confrontation with Trevelyan, who used to be an old friend. Natalya walks over to Bond, and questions how he can be so cold, so dark. "It's what keeps me alive," Bond replies, before the two of them go off to make love. It's a shame Brosnan was not given more scenes such as this one in future Bond films... it certainly makes "Goldeneye" unique, and deep.
The summer of 1995 totally surprised the movie audience with a very sexy, action-packed trailer of "GoldenEye" with a dark figure of a man walking towards the camera. It is Pierce Brosnan and he says "You expecting someone else?"
This is the 17th "official" Bond film and the first of four with Pierce Brosnan.
James Bond is driving his grey Aston Martin with a lovely lady, Caroline (Serena Gordon). A voluptuous woman in a red Ferrari follows him and a car chase develops. Caroline is frantic and demands Bond to stop the car. He does and surprises her with a bottle of Bollinger and some kissing.
Later, at the casino, Bond meets again the lady in the red Ferrari, Xenia Onatopp (Famke Janssen) at the Baccarat table. She will soon be Bond's new opponent.
We will also see Xenia with her date, Admiral Farrell (Billy J. Mitchell) and while she is making love to him, she kills him. (This is the first actual sex scene ever shown in an "official" James Bond film).
Her next target is James Bond and he is on a mission in search of the "GoldenEye" microchip that could destroy the world.
