5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimately Golden Goldeneye!
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars fun
This Bond movie has just one basic flaw but utterly irritating: why should non Anglo-Saxon characters (here most are Russian) speak English among themselvels when no Anglo-Saxon is present and with an awful accent at that?
This is silly and irritating. Either you let them speak their language with subtitles or, if you think viewers will be annoyed by having to read,...

Hi all, is the 5.1 worth it? Has been upscale from dvd? Is the picture better, sound, patchy? Is this worth buying to replace the dvd? Any comments welcome.

3.0 out of 5 stars a bond film about computers and space technology, 6 Sep 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Goldeneye [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
I didn't think the humour in Goldeneye was that good and some of the characters were uninteresting to say the least.This is a bond film about computers and space technology and as with moonraker ( a roger moore bond film) the story didn't appeal to someone like me who prefers films with their feet closer to the ground.If you are a sean bean fan then this film is worth buying to see him put in a good performance as the bad guy but buy the World is Not Enough instead if you are a Pierce Brosnan fan and want to see him at his best.

4.0 out of 5 stars GoldenEye, 15 Jun 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Goldeneye [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
It is a good film with lots of action. The DVD is quite amusing, with documentary's and more. Such as: The World of 007, and a television 'Making of...' Journall. I can asure you that it wil not disappoint you.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Bond so far, 11 Dec 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Goldeneye [VHS] [1995] (VHS Tape)
This, as I said before, is the best Bond so far. The villain, Trevelyan, is the best played villain so far. Brosnan does a great job of fulfilling the shoes of 007, from the failed (I think) Timothy Dalton). It has character, class, and the near impossible task of a James Bond being realistic. Overall, it is a must see for every 007 fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars A reasonable return for 007..., 6 Sep 2005

After lying dormant for six years due to legal disputes, the 007 franchise returned to the big screen in 1995 with Goldeneye. Tim Dalton had already handed back his licence to kill, and the producers hired Pierce Brosnan as the new Bond. Brosnan of course had been on the verge of landing the role for 1987's The Living Daylights before commitments to Remington Steele intervened.
Goldeneye begins with a cracking pre-credits sequence featuring a spectacular bungee-jump from the top of a dam, a great shoot-out and a fun if rather implausible climax involving a pilotless plane and a free-falling Bond. Daniel Kleinman's first title sequence is also terrific. But thereafter the flaws start to creep in. The silly car chase sequence involving Bond and Onatopp is annoying, as is the dreadful music that accompanies it. Eric Serra managed to create by far the worst score for a Bond movie, and his end title song is excrutiating.
There are plenty of great moments - the repartie between Bond and M, another classic Q sequence and of course the brilliant tank chase - but despite these tasty ingredients Goldeneye somehow ends up as a rather bland pie.
Brosnan is probably the perfect Bond - combining Connery's looks and charisma with Dalton's acting prowess - but he is poorly served by the script. Most of the one-liners are truly appalling. Sean Bean and Izabella Scorupco are adequate though totally forgettable as the villain and Bond girl respectively, while it's a pity that Alan Cumming's annoying geek wasn't bumped off right at the beginning.
For me the two stand-out performances in Goldeneye come from Famke Janssen as the completely over-the-top femme fatale who uses her thighs to despatch her foes, and Robbie Coltrane as a deadpan Russian gangster.
Goldeneye is a reasonably satisfying entry in the Bond series but ultimately it pales in comparison with the likes of the Bourne Supremacy, which demonstrates how espionage thrillers should be done.

This review is from: Goldeneye [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
ok so it was a long wait, but what's with the cheesy 70's hairstyle? the eric serra soundtrack was terrible. Redeemed by famke jansen, sean beans rivalry and the russian setting

3.0 out of 5 stars Style over substance, 25 Oct 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Goldeneye [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
Many think that this is greatest Bond film in the series and I'm afraid I must disagree. Goldeneye did introduce Bond into the 90s and it did make a great deal of money but it is far from a perfect film.
The opening sequence is brilliant. It involves Bond sneaking around a Russian facility gunning down troops and planting explosives. The sequence ends with Bond sky-diving to catch up with a plane that's going at full throttle. By the time the titles roll you know that this film isn't going for realism.
However, the rest of the film is disappointing. It has its moments such as a tank chase through St.Petersburg and an interesting encounter with an old foe but the film is less satisfying as a whole. Despite a few amusing incidences this Bond film feels very formulaic with little to distinguish it from the other 16 or so films.
Bronson is overrated in this film. I do like him but he falls short of the superb performance he gives in TWINE. He is suave but he doesn't give the part any real sense of depth, (not yet at any rate) despite what you may have read elsewhere. I do not rate Brosnan favourably against the heavy weight acting talents of his immediate predecessor.
The rest of the cast are good, particularly Sean Bean who steals every scene he's in. The plot is okay, the women are fine, and the action is louder and more ridiculous than before.
It isn't a bad film its just that it feels so commercial and conservative. It doesn't have the guts to be thriller; it doesn't have the heart to be a love story and what is left is a rather self-conscious, camp adventure. This is a style over substance Bond film.
