Goldeneye (1995)

EW's GRADE
C

Details Lead Performance: Tina Turner; Genre: Soundtracks

The James Bond myth certainly allows for the trinity of Sex, Danger, and Elegance to verge on melodrama. But with its self-conscious vocals and maudlin horns and strings, Goldeneye, Turner's title track to the new Bond flick, blithely crosses the line. The kind of romanticized fluff you'd expect to hear on Moneypenny's Walkman, not 007's. C
