Years after a friend and fellow 00 agent is killed on a joint mission, a secret space based weapons program known as Goldeneye is stolen. James Bond sets out to stop a Russian crime syndicate from using the weapon.
After the failed deflection of a Russian General, James Bond is sent to investigate a KGB policy to kill all enemy spies. While exploring this threat, Bond uncovers an arms deal that potentially has major global ramifications.
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.
Agent James Bond 007 is on a mission which includes a media tycoon, his former lover and a Chinese agent. Elliot Carver wants to complete his global media empire, but in order for this to work, he must achieve broadcasting rights in China. Carver wants to start up World War III by starting a confrontation over British and Chinese waters. Bond gains the help of Wai Lin on his quest to stop him, but how will Bond feel when he meets up with his former lover, who is now Carver's wife.Written by
Bond is confused by a PC keyboard with Chinese letters. In "You Only Live Twice" Bond stated that he took a First in Oriental Languages at Cambridge and so would have been able to understand the keyboard. See more »
Our man's in position on the center camera. It's like a terrorist supermarket. Chinese Long March Scud, Panther AS-565 attack helicopter, a pair of Russian mortars, and the crates look like American rifles. Chilean mines. German explosives. Fun for the whole family.

Originally toned down for a 12 cinema certificate in the UK, a further 6 seconds of cuts were required to retain this rating for the video version. All use of shurikens (throwing stars) and a bad guy having his face stamped on were removed, and most of the fight sound effects were reduced. In 2006 the PG-13/international version was passed uncut in the UK by the BBFC for the Ultimate Edition DVD, with an upgrade from a 12 to a 15 certificate. The same cut was later passed 12 for the Blu-ray release. See more »
The second Bond film of the Brosnan era is nothing compared to the first.
The film as a tremendous look and feel about it, more so than any other Bond film. However, looks are very deceiving. Jonathan Pryce looks the part of a Bond villain, but does not pull it off. Teri Hatcher looks the part of a Bond girl, but is lifeless and boring. Michelle Yeoh breaths some life into the movie, but is ultimately unappealing.
Overall, a fairly interesting story is destroyed by poor writing and uninspired casting choices.
