"Live Wire" wasn't able to make it into the theaters. That's because this is strictly second rate. The storyline alternates between being laughable and being predictable. Pierce Brosnan portrays a bomb expert who usually works for the FBI but also does some side work for the local police. His marriage is on the rocks because he allowed their young daughter to drown in the pool. How nice. The incident is shown only in flashback and seems almost trivial the way in which it is presented. Brosnan ends up becoming involved with an investigation into exploding politicians. Yup...that's right. Certain senators end up combusting in a big way after drinking what appears to be water. The end of the movie borrows more than a little inspiration from the TV show "MacGyver". This movie never really finds its place and contains your standard action sequences and rather poor special effects. Brosnan is much more impressive as Bond.

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 ›

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.. .

In this not-ready-for-Bond primer, Pierce Brosnan plays an FBI explosives expert who can't figure out a series of deadly D.C. detonations that has the nation's capital on edge. The mysterious explosive premise is a good one, however the movie suffers from a made-for-cable feel (perhaps because of the terrible music). The cast does a good job with a fair to middling script, but a few characters just don't belong. Namely Lisa Eilbacher as Brosnan's promiscious wife. Usually a reliable actress, she's reduced to eye candy in this one. Ben Cross does a smash-bang job as the heavy, but Ron Silver is dead weight as Cross's congressional co-conspirator. All in all, Live Wire delivers an interesting pop, but is far from the entertaining big bang you might expect from a film featuring the future James Bond.

Great action well delivered by pierce Brosnan you can tell this guy is made for the role of James Bond. Brosnan has all crediabillty and belvabillty in presenting his character to the viewer. Brosnan Plays an ex-bomb expert turned FBI Agent who is puzzeld when people are just suddenly exploding all over the place and finds out that just before the victim`s explode they drink a glass of water laced with a silver coated explosive all courtesy of a terroist out to get revenge on crooked senators that cut him out of a $50 millon arms deal. The explosive premise was a great way to get the viewer`s attention and thanks to Brosnan`s great physical and acting talent this was the perfect role to show anyone who were skeptical of seeing Brosnan in the role of 007 proved them wrong because he did an outstanding job.

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'.
