But this nineteenth Bond installment also puts James, in his place. ((I THINK YOU'RE A SEXIST DINOSAUR. A RELICT OF THE COLD WAR.))
It wouldn't be a Bond movie without "Q".
Sean Bean is the British agent gone bad.
Famke Jannsen has some lethal moves as the female villain.
And Izabella Scorupco bonds with Double O-Seven as the computer whiz and partner.
The two team up to foil plans to destroy London with a Russian space weapon...code name "GoldenEye". ((Movie Music))
I'm giving Pierce Brosnan's Bond an "A-". The movie has fast action, speeding vehicles, and everything a true fan could ask for when bonding with GoldenEye.))
