"Goldeneye", the 17th in the James Bond series, follows the traditional
Bond formula from the heart-stopping escape in the opening minutes to the
closing kiss, but it is done well. Shaken, not stirred, so to speak. Pierce
Brosnan would have been Bond years ago if it hadn't been for a pesky contract
with the TV series "Remington Steele", where he played a Bondish
private eye. But now that he has his chance at bat, he hits the ball out
of the park. Rated R.
