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.
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.

This highly fictionalized tale of Ian Fleming is very entertaining. The movie tries to make Fleming look like his hero in this TV movie but I doubt that was the case. Read morePublished on March 1 2004 by kametamorphic
I must say that I did enjoy this speculative TV movie about Ian Fleming. Charles Dance played a rather enigmatic Fleming which is what this movie really needed to make it work. Read morePublished on Jan. 29 2004 by gobirds2
