‘Bond flim Spectre had a weak story’
Pierce Brosnan feels the film was too lengthy, but he praises Daniel Craig
British actor and former James Bond star Pierce Brosnan (right) says he is disappointed with the recently-released Bond film Spectre. In an interview, Brosnan shared his less-than glowing review of the 24th Bond film.
“I was looking forward to it enormously. I thought it was too long. The story was kind of weak — it could have been condensed. It kind of went on too long. It really did,” variety.com quoted Brosnan as saying. The actor, who played the super-spy in four films from 1995 to 2002, went on to say that Spectre didn’t quite feel like a Bond film.
He did, however, have some kind words about the current Bond, Daniel Craig. “(Spectre) is neither fish nor fowl. It’s neither Bond nor Bourne. Am I in a Bond movie? Not in a Bond movie? But Daniel, in the fourth go-round, has ownership of it. He had a nice looseness to him,” he said. “He’s a mighty warrior, and I think he found a great sense of himself in this one with the one-liners and a nice playfulness there. Just get a tighter story, and he’ll have another classic,” he added further.
