‘Bond flim Spec­tre had a weak story’

Pierce Bros­nan feels the film was too lengthy, but he praises Daniel Craig

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

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.
