Pierce Brosnan Says His James Bond Performance Wasn't Good Enough
Yet, his Die Another Day was the highest-grossing instalment of the franchise back then.
"I felt I was caught in a time warp between and . It was a very hard one to grasp the meaning of, for me,” he told The Telegraph recently this week.
The actor further revealed that, "The violence was never real, the brute force of the man was never palpable. It was quite tame, and the characterization didn't have a follow-through of reality, it was surface. But then that might have had to do with my own insecurities in playing him as well.”
The Irish actor now 60, starred as Ian Fleming’s secret service agent in four films – GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough and Die Another Day – between 1995 and 2002.
Despite Brosnan's self-doubt, his Bond was general well-received by movie-goers according to UK's The Independent. Die Another Day became the highest-grossing instalment of the franchise at the time.
Daniel Craig's take on 007 has won the films their most critical praise, however, with Sam Mendes'Skyfall the first Bond movie to break the £1 billion barrier worldwide. Released in 2012, it remains the highest-grossing film in UK cinematic history.
With all these huge successes, don't you think Piece Brosnan is just blabbing?
