Goldeneye’s Martin Campbell Names His Favorite James Bond Movie, And It Makes So Much Sense

The way that Martin Campbell talks about From Russia With Love, you can sort of see the flourishes in his James Bond entries that map up to what he loves about the second 007 film ever. While there are control rooms linked to the Goldeneye satellite itself, and Sean Bean’s Alec Trevalyan definitely qualifies as a James Bond madman, those aspects don’t rain on the parade of realism Campbell injected into the film. And the rivalry between Pierce Brosnan’s James Bond and his former MI6 compatriot was a far cry from what would come after, and what had come before. Plus, Famke Janssen’s Xenia Onatopp is definitely a deranged secondary villain that aligns with Lotte Lenya’s ruthless nature.
