Pierce Brosnan is known for his suave portrayal of James Bond, as the previous lead actor for the movie series from 1995 to 2002.
He acted alongside famous lead love interests like the first black ‘Bond girl’ Halle Berry and Desperate Housewives’ Teri Hatcher.
“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.”
He also compared it to a Jason Bourne movie.
“[‘Spectre’] is neither fish nor fowl. It’s neither Bond nor Bourne. Am I in a Bond movie? Not in a Bond movie?”
Despite his thoughts on this movie in the series, he praised current Bond actor Daniel Craig, calling him a “mighty warrior” in the movie. “Daniel, in the fourth go-round, has ownership of it. He had a nice looseness to him.”
“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.”
