Top 10 James Bond Movies

Pierce Brosnan and Famke Janssen in Goldeneye


Goldeneye (1995)

In Pierce Brosnan's first film, 007 takes on a former friend and double-O who hijacks a Russian nuclear space weapon. This is the movie that introduced James Bond to a new generation of fans. The film's edgier, darker feel is a testament to director Martin Campbell and gives the movie a unique quality setting it apart from other 007 adventures—in a good way. The reason it works so well is that the line between realism and outlandish action is toed perfectly, never going too far in either direction. The entire supporting cast is memorable, particularly Bond girls Izabella Scorupco and Famke Janssen, whose characters are as strong as they are beautiful. Throw in Judi Dench as M and this is one film where women are not just eye candy.
