From Amazon.co.uk

The film that marked the successful rebirth of the 007 franchise, which had laid dormant for over half a decade, GoldenEye remains Pierce Brosnan’s finest moment as Britain’s most famous secret agent.

The plot? This one involves the Russian mafia, a rogue agent and a powerful satellite, although realistically it’s the standard 007 formula at work. Thus, there’s gadgets, girls and plenty of action, with the plot trying to squeeze in where there’s room.

There are several reasons though why GoldenEye works so well. Firstly, it successfully ushered in a new cast, with Judi Dench’s M, Samantha Bond’s Moneypenny and Robbie Coltrane’s Valentin Zukovsky all marking their 007 movie debut. Then, the baddies are strong, although Sean Bean’s ruthless 006 is overshadowed by Famke Janssen’s career-making performance as Xenia Onatopp. And then there’s that vital 007 ingredient--the action. From a stunning pre-credits sequence, which is arguably the film’s highlight, through to several high-tempo action moments throughout the rest of the film, it’s highly enjoyable stuff, and impossible to resist.

Finally, there’s Brosnan. Arguably the most successful Bond since Sean Connery defined the role, his laid back, hard-edged charm serves him well, and he never looked more comfortable as 007 as he does in his maiden outing.

In short, GoldenEye is not only a terrific Bond movie, it’s a strong action movie full stop. --Jon Foster

Product Description

GoldenEye (1995) is the seventeenth spy film in the James Bond series, and the first to star Pierce Brosnan as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond. The film was directed by Martin Campbell and is the first film in the series not to take story elements from the works of novelist Ian Fleming.[1] The story was conceived and written by Michael France, with later collaboration by other writers. In the film, Bond fights to prevent an arms syndicate from using the GoldenEye satellite weapon against London in order to cause a global financial meltdown. GoldenEye was released in 1995 after a six-year hiatus in the series caused by legal disputes, during which Timothy Dalton resigned from the role of James Bond and was replaced by Pierce Brosnan. M was also recast, with actress Judi Dench becoming the first woman to portray the character, replacing Robert Brown. GoldenEye was the first Bond film made after the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War, which provided a background for the plot. The Man with the Golden Gun was the fourth and final film in the series to be directed by Guy Hamilton. The script was written by Richard Maibaum and Tom Mankiewicz. The film was set in the face of the 1973 energy crisis, a dominant theme in the script-Britain had still not yet fully overcome the crisis when the film was released in December 1974. The film also reflects the then popular martial arts film craze, with several kung-fu scenes and a predominantly Asian location, being shot in Thailand, Hong Kong and Macao. The film saw mixed reviews, with Christopher Lees performance as Scaramanga, intended to be a villain of similar skill and ability to Bond, being praised; but reviewers criticized the film as a whole, particularly the comedic approach. Although the film was profitable, it is the fourth lowest-grossing Bond film in the series and has been described as the lowest point in the canon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimately Golden Goldeneye! 23 July 2006
Format:DVD
In 1995, when GOLDENEYE first came out, there had been no Bond films for six years, partly due to legal wrangles, and partly due to Timothy Dalton jumping ship after LICENCE TO KILL (1989), only his second film as Bond. When the waiting action fans were finally treated to GOLDENEYE, they really got what they hoped for, as GOLDENEYE is not only a brilliant entry into the series, but also a great way to introduce Pierce Brosnan to the role of the screen's favourite super-spy. Pierce was a great choice for the role, combining the best parts of Sean Connery with the ability to quip like Roger Moore did so well, and just generally looking the part.

James Bond a.k.a. 007 seems fuelled by revenge after fellow agent 006 a.k.a. Alec Trevelyan (Sean Bean, SHARPE) is killed during a mission, and just may get the chance to avenge this death when M (Dame Judi Dench, MRS BROWN, MRS HENDERSON PRESENTS) instructs him to go to Russia to find a space weapon nicknamed Goldeneye, which has the potential to cause major global meltdown through its power being used to render redundant anything electrical, including all computer systems. He teams up with the survivor of the destruction of a space station control centre, Natalya Simonova (Polish actress Izabella Scorupco), who is a bit of a whiz on computers herself. However, James has yet to realise that the real danger will give him the shock of his life, not to mention an enemy who could be his match in more ways than one -- and that's if the evil Xenia Onatopp (Dutch actress Famke Janssen, X-MEN, I SPY) doesn't crush him to death with her lethal legs first!

Notice that on the front of the box is the word 'UNCUT' just under the title?

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent film, excellent package! 19 July 2006
Format:DVD
The film dos'nt need describing as everyones seen it, except to say that this is the original uncut edition which is more violent as it has for example headcuts in the fight scenes that were orginally left on the cutting room floor. The improved picture and the sound quality especially are incredible.

The extras on the second disc are also excellent. there are various featurettes, everything from the pre-production press conference with a nervous looking Pierce Brosnan to behind the scenes of the tank chase and a look at Derek Medding's amazing minatures. Theres also some deleted scenes not all of which are good but worth a look.

I'm one of the Bond fans who had most of the films on the previous DVDs but decided to splash out for this one mainly because I wanted to see the 'uncut' version of the film and because the special features on the previous disc were weaker than on the other Bond films. I can safely say that Goldeneye at least is a worthy investment if you like the film as there is loads on here not on the previous DVD. Top sound and picture quality, great extras and fantastic presentation all round. If your thinking of getting some of the new Ultimate Edition Bond DVDs then this is a good one to start with.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Bondlike than any other Bond film 28 Dec 2005
Format:DVD
If there is one Bond film that strictly follows the Bond cliches then this is it. Spectacular pre-credit sequence, great theme song, amazing stunts, beautiful women, a decent plot, memorable villains, Bond gets captured, escapes in style, etc etc. But for once, it doesn't feel tired, and this film is as fresh and as exciting as the first entry in the series, Dr. No.
It helps having Pierce Brosnan in the role, a fresh face in an old part. His seriousness, coupled with cheeky humour plays dividends for the film and makes the character more human than ever before. He realistically plays Bond, never once going into caricature, and brings the "misogynist, cold war relic," into the Nineties.
And for once, Goldeneye has a decent plot. MI6 agent, 006 (played brilliantly by Sean Bean) goes rogue, and aims to become rich with the Goldeneye EMP satellite. It's up to Bond to stop him. The film is paired into two distinct halves - an interesting, plot setting up first half, and an action blow out second half.
The whole film is memorable, but most spectacularly, are the incredible dam jump opening, the street destroying tank chase, and the ending show down.
Gadgets, vehicles and girls are all correct and present. It may follow the Bond formula strictly, but that is a good thing - you know what to expect, and can just sit back and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Movie 21 Aug 2006
By M. Rao
Format:DVD
In India, it is very difficult for us to find the original DVDs of bond movies even though I searched for it high and low. However, I made up my mind on acquiring the ultimate editions when I heard the description and the features and I must admit that I am more than happy with my purchase, even though it cost me a bomb to import these from the UK.

As in case of other bonds, Pierce brings to the table the customary humour, good looks, good acting and above all an impression of a smart and scheming spy ... something which I felt the other bonds lacked. Pierce pulls off those scenes with amazing ease.

The audio and visual quality is par excellence and I intend to get all the bond movies in ultimate edition. Till now, I have bought about ten movies and wish to complete the entire set. Thanks MGM and SOny for this visual treat.
