Ranking the Bond films: GoldenEye

For Pierce Brosnan's first turn as 007, the franchise went back to basics. Gambling in Monte Carlo. The return of Bond's DB5. A plot that almost makes sense (something about destroying Britain's economic infrastructure with a space-based pulse magnet weapon). By far the best, most comprehensible of the Brosnan Bonds.
