Pierce Brosnan says Bond flim ‘Spectre’ was weak story

Pierce-Brosnan-for-Speake-Marin_1-LresActor and former 007 Pierce Brosnan says he is disappointed with the latest Bond film “Spectre.”

In an interview with HitFix, 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.

“Spectre” worldwide gross is nearing $550 million.
