The story revolves around a Russian weapon called Goldeneye, which has the ability to knock out anything with an electrical circuit in a 30-mile radius. Bond has to do a lot to get this weapon back before it causes a global financial meltdown.
Pierce Brosnan is just perfect as James Bond who finds himself travelling to a newly capitalist Russia, where he has to deal for the first time with a female M, played wonderfully by Judi Dench, who makes no bones about calling OO7 a "sexist, misogynous dinosaur, a relic of the Cold War".

This is Pierce Brosnan’s first outing as 007 and he is more than welcome to walk in the shoes of a beloved character because I believe he is as dangerous and charismatic Sean Connery. Even though he may appeal more to the modern fans of the Bond franchise, he has that classic fun factor that older fans can definitely appreciate. Brosnan is able to deliver the classic one-liners with a certain serious but undeniablly fun swagger. As for the …
