4.0 out of 5 stars Faithful portrayal of Fleming's life June 28 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Another reviewer here says that SPYMAKER, the TV movie starring Jason Connery (Sean's son) is better. That's really a matter of personal opinion. But as a long-time James Bond fan and collector, not only of the films but of the original Ian Fleming books, I can tell you unequivocally that GOLDENE EYE is a much more accurate portrayal of the life of Ian Fleming.
Another major plus is that Charles Dance actually looks like Fleming, and manages to mimic his voice and mannerisms quite well, based on the archival footage I've seen of Fleming. Jason Connery doesn't even come close -- he was obviously cast because of his father's reputation.
If you're looking for a purely fictionalized fantasy, only loosely suggested by Fleming's wartime career, then you might enjoy SPYMAKER. But if you want the true story, I highly reccommend GOLDEN EYE. I also strongly reccommend the Ian Fleming documentary which is included on the special edition DVD of THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Real James Bond- Commander Ian Fleming Aug. 28 2000
Format:VHS Tape
An intriguing story about the life of the man who created James Bond, his name was Cmdr. Ian Fleming. Charles Dance, stars as Fleming, the adventurer who created the legend known as 007. But Fleming's super spy was not just an invention of a good imagination, his ideas came from his own life. An amazing love of adventurer led him to become involved in espionage during the second world war. His personality went into his Bond books, including his seductive charm and wit, the same as Bond's. This film is based on a true story, and should be viewed by anyone who is a James Bond fan, and everyone who has viewed a James Bond films hould learn who the real James Bond is-Ian Fleming.

3.0 out of 5 stars 99% fiction Oct. 22 2003
By it
Format:VHS Tape
This is a highly fictionalized account of the late Ian Fleming's role in the 1939-1945 war. As fiction it is very entertaining, but as history it is total trash.
Unlike the account in this film, Ian spent the whole war as a minor desk jockey in England. His relationship with two women are accurately portrayed. The part about Stevenson is also fiction. In fact, the book about him called "The Man Called Intrepid" has a preface by the British publisher that it is 100% fiction.
The appearance by Phyllis Logan is very good. She is a very versatile actress realistically portraying the whole range from a morally sleazy woman in this film to a quality woman in Lovejoy.
