GoldenEye (1995)**
Pierce Brosnan's first outing as Bond and it's very uneven. Spectacular opening stunt work and a few nice action sequences, but some very slow parts that feel awkward and out of place. Huge plot holes, not unusual for a Bond picture, and why bring Joe Don Baker back? He's a terrible actor. Brosnan's Bond is as hard-edged as predecessor Timothy Dalton's but with a much more aggressive libido which reduces his charm somewhat, and gives the film a crudeness not expected of a Bond picture.
