Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If Connery was Sexy Bond and George Lazenby was One-Shot Bond and Roger Moore was Geezer Bond and Timothy Dalton was Bored Bond, then Brosnan should be Posh Bond."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"A solid but somewhat by-the-numbers entry in the James Bond cycle."
‑ Todd McCarthy, Variety
"Top notch popcorn entertainment, straight from the Hollywood factory. This is even better than GOLDENEYE."
‑ Austin Kennedy, Film Geek Central
"Not, in aggregate, the worst of the Pierce Brosnan Bond films, but... it has the weakest excuse for a conflict."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"...a briskly-paced and thoroughly entertaining James Bond adventure..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Bond is just a glorified stuntman now; he's lost his license to thrill."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Flawed, but fantastic fun all the same."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"It succeeds, although it is let down by its weak villain. But there are enough stunts, quips and high-tech thrills to keep you from caring."
‑ , Total Film
"Bond, James Bond. For mature eyes only."
‑ Scott G. Mignola, Common Sense Media
"The major episodes are, as always, well-executed."
‑ Cynthia Fuchs, Philadelphia City Paper
"The 18th James Bond movie features the usual saturation bombardment."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Brosnan is fast becoming the second best 007 -- effortlessly competent and coolly sexy."
‑ Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle
"A thrill machine akin to one of the canon's more cleverly naughty entendres, uttered here: "You always were a cunning linguist, James." Obvious and crass to please everyone's inner schoolboy, but presented with just enough eloquence and ingenuity."
‑ Nick Rogers,
"One watches a Bond film for two hours of spy intrigue, car chases, fights, explosions, and beautiful women, and on that fairly undemanding level, it delivers the goods."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Kinetic, knowing, crammed with high-tech gadgetry and sophisticated in the most superficial sense of the term: What else could you ask of a James Bond picture?"
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
