Bringing a clever amalgam of all four previous Bond actors to the screen, Brosnan proved himself to be the perfect fit for the post-modern take on the character. Taking the style of Connery, the broody emotion of Lazenby, the humour of Moore and the tougher edge of Dalton, Brosnan was quick to fully embody the character and make Bond his own. It is a startlingly assured debut performance capturing the essence of the character while offering a timely introspective examination of his place in the modern, post-Cold War world.
Dimitri Mishkin: Good morning, Mr. Bond. Sit. I'm Defense Minister Dimitri Mishkin. So, by what means shall we execute you, Commander Bond?
