1995. Great Britain. Directed by Martin Campbell. With Pierce Brosnan, Judi Dench, Sean Bean. Goodbye Timothy Dalton, hello Pierce Brosnan. After a six-year hiatus, the Bond franchise returned with a new 007, more sophisticated technology, and a view to mirror the excesses of contemporary action movies. In what was, at the time, the most expensive Bond film, product placement became a prominent factor in narrative development; Bond drove a BMW, wore an Omega watch, and drank Perrier water. Also, M is now a woman, played by the elegantly unyielding Dench. 130 min.
