Product Description

Product Description

Pierce Brosnan makes his 007 debut, replacing Timothy Dalton as Britain's most celebrated secret agent. On his first post-Cold War mission, Bond is sent to blow up a Soviet chemical weapons factory with agent 006 (Sean Bean). Nine years later, Bond becomes involved in the break-up of the Soviet Union, and soon finds himself involved with a blitzkrieg of stolen helicopters, beautiful female assassins, Russian Mafiosi and the race for a vital piece of weaponry - the credit-card sized 'GoldenEye'.


Pierce Brosnan assumed the role of James Bond for the first time in Goldeneye, the 17th entry in the series. Brosnan looks a little light on the big screen under any circumstances, and he does take some getting used to as 007. But this busy film keeps him hopping as freelance terrorists from the former Soviet Union get their hands on super-high-tech weapons. The film's challenge is to bring free-spirited Bond up to date in the age of AIDS and in the aftermath of the cold war: director Martin Campbell (The Mask of Zorro) succeeds on both counts with a cheeky hint of irony. The best moment in the film is a chase scene that finds Bond tearing up the streets of Moscow in a tank. But Brosnan's most interesting contributions are reminiscent of the dark streak that occasionally showed up in Sean Connery's Bond. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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?

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.

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.

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.
