Long before his stint as James Bond, Pierce Brosnan did make some darn good
movies. One of them is 'Live Wire'. Director Christian Duguay (The
Hitchhiker series) has done a brilliant job in making Brosnan's entry into
the world of action as smooth as possible.
Brosnan plays Danny O' Neill, an Irish bomb defusion specialist working for
the FBI's anti-terrorist division. The movie is a cat and mouse game between
Brosnan's old adversary from the IRA and Brosnan himself. The IRA terrorist
is out to make his millions from corrupt politicians and their wrongful
ways. Ron Silver plays a Senator under threat and Brosnan is called in to
protect him. The movie also intertwines Danny O' Neill's separation from his
wife due to her alleged affair with the Senator (Ron Silver). All these make
for very intriguing drama and fast paced yet "intelligent" action. Worth a
If there ever was a movie that used a silly excuse to portray sex on screen, this is it. In typical erotic thriller fashion, the film relies on a very weak story. In short its about a seemingly paranoid female psychiatrist being blackmailed. She hires Steve Caldwell of the Night Eyes Agency to protect her. The psychiatrist is joined by a very mad patient who barges into and out of her office like he owns the place and a couple who strip naked and have wild sex every time they are shown on screen. One thing leads to another and Steve Caldwell is procreating with psychiatrist lady like a rabbit. There are diversions like break-ins, sabotage and anonymous phone calls in addition to horrendous screenplay during the course of the 80 minutes and finally the person behind it all is caught...but that really isn't what this is all about right?
