A fake Fabergé egg, and a fellow Agent's death, lead James Bond to uncover an international jewel-smuggling operation, headed by the mysterious Octopussy, being used to disguise a nuclear attack on N.A.T.O. forces.
Armed with a license to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007 and must defeat a private banker to terrorists in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, Montenegro but things are not what they seem.
When a deadly satellite weapon system falls into the wrong hands, only Agent 007 can save the world from certain disaster. Armed with his license to kill, Bond races to Russia in search of the stolen access codes for "Goldeneye," an awesome space weapon that can fire a devastating electromagnetic pulse toward Earth. But 007 is up against an enemy who anticipates his every move: a mastermind motivated by years of simmering hatred. Bond also squares off against Xenia Onatopp, an assassin who uses pleasure as her ultimate weapon. Written by

At the time the script was being written, the producers were under the assumption that Timothy Dalton would be renewing the role of Bond. It was written to match Dalton's darker, more realistic portrayal of 007. See more »
When the antennae of the dish is raised out of the water, it is dripping wet in one shot, and bone dry in the next. (The second shot is apparently reversed footage, where they sank the antennae into the water and reversed it to make it appear to be rising out of the water.) See more »

Starring: Pierce Brosnan, Izabella Scorupco, Sean Bean, and Famke Janssen.
Double-0 agent James Bond, still as suave and sophisticated as he was in the last film, enters Russia in search of the stolen Goldeneye satellite.
After six years without 007, the fans needed a movie like this. Just about everything in this works, from the witty plot to Pierce Brosnan as the new Bond. And I can't review this without complimenting Sean Bean as the series best villain.
