What sets ''[=GoldenEye=]'' apart from the James Bond films is its introspective tone. The movie spends a great deal of time discussing ''why'' 007 does what he does, as character after character gives him a ReasonYouSuckSpeech due to his womanizing behavior and cold attitude in the previous films. It's also the first film to delve into Bond's family life.

Cut to the present day, where spies have traded in their Walther [=PPKs=] for pocket protectors, and [[SecretIntelligenceService MI6]] is being retrofitted for the 21st century -- with a bureaucracy to match. Bond's mission, should he choose to accept it (damn, [[Series/MissionImpossible wrong franchise]]!), is to investigate the reactivation of an old Soviet space weapon, the titular Goldeneye, which has fallen into the hands of some [[RenegadeRussian wily ex-Soviets]]. But little does he know that there is far more to this mission than meets the eye (ho ho), and he will be forced to face his past when it comes back to haunt him. And shoot at him.

The Bond Girls for this go-round include Natalya Simonova (Izabella Scorupco), a Russian programmer who [[HeKnowsTooMuch knows more about the theft of Goldeneye than is healthy]], and Xenia Onatopp (Creator/FamkeJanssen), a sadist who [[MurderousThighs crumples men between her thighs]].

** Averted earlier. MI6 analysts ''believe'' this applies to Ourumov: they discount him as a possible accomplice in the destruction of Severnaya because as a career soldier who "sees himself as the next Iron Man of Russia," he "doesn't fit the profile of a traitor." Bond, of course, doesn't believe a word of it, and is vindicated by events.

* ProductPlacement: Bond's BMW. Also, The Eurocopter (now Airbus Helicopters) [=EC665=] Tiger, as well as the latest Aston Martin [=DB5=], and IBM computers. Interestingly enough, the Tiger wouldn't become operationally ready for another 13 years, so at the time it really was a prototype. The BMW Z3 - although not a favourite of Bond fans - was also only a prototype but actively spurred sales of the vehicle despite appearing in two short sequences on film. Perrier truck.also got in on the act with a truck being prominently obliterated during the tank chase.
