| the missing Bond film?
'Goldeneye' is the story of Ian Fleming's exploits in the Secret Service during World War II, and plays like the Bond movie we had all forgot - incidentally, Charles Dance, who plays Fleming, would have made a wonderful Bond in his day; what a shame it never happened.

With a TV feel but a strong and absorbing plot (including a fun role for Julian Fellowes as Noel Coward), Goldeneye delivers on all fronts, becoming an interesting curio on the side of the main 007 films.

Strong support from Phyllis Logan, Patrick Ryecart and other familiar faces from 1980s TV makes this move along smoothly. It has emotion, tension, gambling, Martinis, and a bit of sex. Just like the perfect Bond mix in fact.
