Rotten Tomatoes: 80% – Pierce Brosnan turns in a fine performance, establishing himself as a fine heir to the Bond throne. The plotting isn’t as solid as in the best Bond films, but this is still a good time.
My rating: ***
My assessment (the first 101 words at least): I have included three bond movies on my list, to try to compare the different styles that the character has taken over the years. If this movie is to judge all of the Pierce Brosnan films, then James Bond movies are loud, action packed, and never let up the pace for a second. There’s little else to this movie. If I were asked to define a summer blockbuster, this would seem like the perfect definition. It also doesn’t leave much of an imprint, nor any desire to see the film again. A decent action film, but not very memorable or unique.
