James Bond film #17 (Pierce Brosnan Bond)
GoldenEye was released in 1995 after 6 years of a world without Bond, still the longest gap between any two 007 adventures. Because of the delay and all the legal tanglings that caused it, Timothy Dalton opted out of the role and Pierce Brosnan stepped into his place, a man who has come to define James Bond for pretty much all of Generation Y. Also huge is the fact that this is the first post-Cold War Bond, a point referenced to extensively and used to hang the plot on. In a lot of ways, it seems like a reboot of the series; the big change-up in production personnel is clearly evident. GoldenEye brings Bond up to speed in the modern world, finally stepping out of the mold it crafted in the 60s and 70s.
