Dying can wait : Pierce Brosnan breaks his silence and gives his verdict on the film!
Almost a year after its release, the latest opus of the license james bond dated, the moving Dying can wait continues to divide despite generally positive critical reviews. The feature film which definitively closes the Daniel Craig era surprised just as much by its finale as by certain formal biases, while disappointing at times by using to the rope the bad practices inherent in the series.
Emblem of the revival of the franchise, Daniel Craig succeeded the unloved Pierce Brosnan on the occasion of Casino Royale , rallying to him all the votes, before Quantum of Solace instills doubt and Skyfall sweeps him away again. Thus, the work of Martin Campbell and then of Sam Mendes will have greatly contributed to consolidating both the legend of the British spy and that of his charismatic interpreter. The void now left by the actor will be difficult to fill.
Daniel Craig wins the duel of the interpreters of 007…
During an interview for the magazine QGthe one who preceded him in the role of the British secret agent, namely Pierce Brosnan, finally spoke on Dying can waitthe latest installment in the saga. A delayed reaction, full of innuendo and, it must be said, very mixed:
“I saw the last one and I saw Skyfall. I love Skyfall. But I’m not sure I can say the same for the last one. Daniel always gives all his guts. He is very strong, very brave. But… “
A sentence in suspense, it does not take more for the phlegmatic Bronsnan to suggest that this final Craiguien chapter did not live up to his expectations, despite the investment of his interpreter. A very lukewarm return therefore vis-à-vis Dying can wait. Pierce Brosnan thus joins the admirers disappointed by the conclusion of Fukunaga’s feature film, even if the actor is full of praise for Craig. An honorable attitude, from one of the 007 performers who never let ego get in the way of his comments about his predecessors, his successor or the franchise in general.
…against Pierce Brosnan!
However, never mind this advice from Pierce Brosnan for Daniel Craig. The episodes in which he participated are much more appreciated than those of his counterpart, perhaps even the most beloved since those embodied by the late Sean Connery. A legacy that will be heavy to maintain for the future 007 therefore.
Moreover, the production is looking for a replacement at the height of Daniel Craig. Even if the franchise is doing well financially, it risks big if it does not find a worthy successor to the hero of Sky Fall. As for Pierce Brosnan, we can find him on the big screen, in the role of Doctor Fate, in the film black adam next October 19.
