    It's far and above one of the two best Brosnan films.

    I think Jonathan Pryce is a very good actor but I really dislike his performance on this film, even if I agree that the concept of the character as villain is a very good one.

    Yeah Pryce is a little too hammy, even for Bond.

    It's really too bad EON couldn't snag Hopkins.

    And why would you ever hire Ricky Jay and then cut out his card throwing?

    I don't get that being cut, either. It's the one chance Gupta has to be a badass and it was left on the cutting room floor.

    I just could never digest the logic of it.

    You hire the guy because he's known all over the world because he can do one very specific thing. You film a scene of him doing that one thing. And then you cut it. WTF?

    I know many Bond films have deleted scenes that rightfully belonged in the final edit of the movie but that is a standout for so many reasons, not the least of which is that Ricky Jay was hired BECAUSE he can do cool things with a deck of cards.

    DAD is Brosnan’s second best for me. TND and TWINE are bottom two of the entire series.
