Product Details

Product Description


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

5.0 out of 5 stars The pleasure is all yours, Mr. Bond! March 17 2004
The 17th James Bond movie. After a six year hiatus from LICENCE TO KILL, major political upheaval would drastically envelop: the fall of the Berlin Wall, communism collapses in Eastern Europe, and the Soviet Union being dissolved. As the Cold War came towards its' end, fans may have felt weary the James Bond series would end with it. It wasn't until producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli (under supervision from Albert R. Broccoli) now owned the franchise and gambled to bring new life to the character and series. The ongoing events of global alliances, superior weaponry, and advanced technology inevitably set the standard for action, excitement, and suspense. Of course the major component is casting Pierce Brosnan in the role of James Bond. With a riveting performance by Brosnan, and a new thrilling adventure blessed with exotic locales, high-tech gadgetry, beautiful women, deliciously evil villains, and a new female M as portrayed by Dame Judi Dench, GOLDENEYE proves 007 once again a true hero of lethal charm and ruthless determination.
THE ASSIGNMENT: In 1986, Bond and Agent 006 collaborated for a mission in Archangel that went aury with 006 being murdered. Now in the present year (1995, the films' release) Bond has an encounter with mysterious Soviet Xenia Onatopp who has a flair for stunt driving and erotic pleasure. Unaware to Bond or MI6, Onatopp works for the now General Ourumov (who was the enemy in the 1986 mission) under the Janus Crime Syndicate in Russia. Ouromov and Onatopp burst into the Severnaya Computer Facility, kill everyone, and test-fire the GoldenEye satellite in space, obliterating the entire facility. M assigns Bond to seek those responsible and why.

By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
GoldenEye is the best Bond-movie since Goldfinger. It has the best sound effects I have ever heard. It has some of the best Bond-villians ever. It has the best Bond-storyline (and I have seen everyone). It has incredibly good actors suuch as Sean Bean and Pierce Brosnan. Overall it is the best Bond-movie!! Buy it NOW!! If you paid (...) for the video....it would be worth it!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pierce Brosnan, the new James Bond. March 17 2004
I liked Roger Moore as "James Bond" and enjoyed Timothy Dalton very much as "James Bond" in License To Kill (1989). I had hoped Dalton would return a third time as Bond, but due to legal negotiations, another James Bond film wasn't made until 1995. While Timothy Dalton was filming "Scarlett", the tv-miniseries sequel to Gone With The Wind (1939), Dalton had announced that he no longer wished to play "James Bond" and was moving on with his career. Afterwards, a settlement had been made with EON and "James Bond" would return. Pierce Brosnan was selected. Goldeneye would be Brosnan's first "James Bond 007" film. I was so much in tone with Timothy Dalton as James Bond, it took me the second film with Brosnan to accept him. The scene with Teri Hatcher in the bedroom in Tomorrow Never Dies (1997) I think did it. Now it had been six years since a "James Bond" film had been made. Goldeneye burst through the envelope in sexuality. And was the very first time CGI special effects were used on a "Bond" film. As a Bond girl, Izabella Scorupco was chosen. Judi Dench was selected as the first female "M". Samantha Bond chosen as the new "Miss Moneypenny". Perhaps it was the line Pierce brosnan said, "No more foreplay!" that did it, but Goldeneye proved to be a mega-hit success and the James Bond films where back on track. Famke Janssen plays the unforgettable villaness. She can kill during sex. My first DVD movie I ever bought was "License To Kill (1987). The next "James Bond 007" films with Pierce Brosnan were: Tomorrow never Dies (1997), The World Is Not Enough (1999), Die Another Day (2002). The plans for the next James Bond film is currently on hold.

"Goldeneye" is the seventeenth overall James Bond film and Pierce Brosnan's first, highly celebrated, performance in this role that he is so seemingly suited for. While I thought Timothy Dalton did a great job with the two films he was able to perform in, Pierce Brosnan just that much more emulates the qualities desired of a James Bond. It was interesting during the time leading up to this great Bond film, hearing all about the negotiations and such for Pierce Brosnan to take the mantle as, if I remember correctly, the powers that be when it comes to the James Bond series, were waiting for Pierce Brosnan to age properly before handing that mantle over to him.
In this, his first and strangely enough, his best performance as the British super agent, Pierce Brosnan takes the role and readily makes it his own in an exemplary manner. It will most certainly be interesting to see, in the final analysis, how many Bond movies he does get to do before the series producers start looking in another direction. I don't believe I've seen any actors out there as of yet that could come close to filling his or any of the other great Bond actor's shoes. Credit also goes to Sean Bean for his performance as one of the villains in this great film. Up until his incredible performance in "The Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring" as Boromir, he had been pretty much been typecast as the villain in most films as he does perform them so well.
As with all great Bond films, there are the Bond babes and the extraordinarily beautiful women that get to take those roles. "Goldeneye" has the great fortune to have Famke Janssen as an outstanding villainess.
