19. 'Goldeneye' (1995)
Pierce Brosnan had all the expressive vigor of a hood ornament in his debut as Bond. But the opening scene is a kick as 007 bungee-jumps into a Russia weapon facility. Sean Bean rocks as duplicitous agent 006. And Famke Janssen crushes it as Xenia Onatopp (really!), the first Bond girl with castrating thighs. It's exciting when Bond runs after a small plane heading straight for a cliff: he leaps, climbs in and steers it to safety in the nick of time. It ain't Shakespeare, but that's some stunt.
