Pierce Brosnan has voiced his opinion on the latest Bond movie, Spectre, and the Navan native certainly didn’t hold back.
The former 007 star slammed the movie, saying it was ‘weak,’ and thought the storyline could have been better.
Speaking to Hitfix, the Irish actor said, “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.
“[Spectre] is neither fish nor fowl. It’s neither Bond nor Bourne. Am I in a Bond movie? Not in a Bond movie?”
Despite not being a fan of the movie, Pierce admitted that it has nothing to do with Daniel Craig’s acting.
“Daniel, in the fourth go-round, has ownership of it. He had a nice looseness to him.
“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 said.
The star who played 007 for four movies, understands Daniel’s claims that he has had enough of the franchise, and won’t return for another sequel, but feels that some time away from the Bond world is all he needs.
“By the time you finish making a Bond movie, you don’t want to hear the name, see the name or have anything to do with it because you just want to go to ground,” he said.
Pierce continued, “Give him another year off here, and he’ll be ready to rock and roll for sure.”
