USA TV - Pierce Brosnan 007 marathon on BBC America today
US cable channel BBC America is airing a mini-marathon of Pierce Brosnan's adventures as James Bond this Sunday, 6th May 2012.
Movie: Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)
For the first hour or so, this 18th Bond movie is up there with the best of them: it has terrific pace, Pierce Brosnan has romantic and rough-house appeal, and the post-Cold War story has grip and plausibility. However the momentum slows in the second half, where the drawn-out action takes over from the story
Movie: GoldenEye (1995)
Pierce Brosnan, on his first mission as 007, quickly establishes himself as the best Bond since Sean Connery and makes a fetish out of the old-fashioned values of loyalty and patriotism. Director Martin Campbell provides a stunning chase between car and tank through the streets of St Petersburg. There are also notable Bond girls in the shape of Izabella Scorupco and assassin Famke Janssen, who kills by crushing her victims between her thighs.
Movie: The World Is Not Enough (1999)
The 19th James Bond adventure effortlessly juggles a hard-hitting story (about oil pipelines in Azerbaijan) with all the expected "super spy" embellishments. Pierce Brosnan is clearly comfortable as 007 and he is matched by Sophie Marceau and Robert Carlyle, who make a perfect pair of Bond villains.
