Re: Spy Thriller franchises, emphasis Ethan Hunt(MI) and Bourne franch Really? Apart from The World is not enough which i can barely tolerate the Brosnan Bonds are utter crap.. overlong commercials for watches, BMW cars, Vodka and anything else they could cram in who sponsored the movies and on top of that the stories sucked very hard. It's not the fault of Brosnan though.. since the 80s when he was in talks to take over but couldn't because the Remington Steele producers wouldn't let him go i always thought he'd make an excellent Bond, i.e. charming as hell with that touch of britishness around him. He did that well in the Bond movies but the rest was fail.
