Daniel Craig Is Pierce Bosnan 007 in Goldeneye (PhotoEdit Thread)

#1 Edited by zonerover (584 posts) -

Looking at the GoldenEye story the other day, there was one obvious mistake:
 

 So I'm going to fill the void - introducing GoldenEye 007 with Daniel Craig playing Pierce Bosnan, with the original for comparisons sake. [Edited to make more sense] And for the record, I know that Daniel Craig plays himself in the game. Somehow I think this Daniel Pierce guy just looks more 'authentic'.

Original

I wish this movie was real; Daniel is my favorite bond (Connery is close behind at second)...

Wait what? But the new game will have Daniel Craig as the character model. 
 
Creepy photoshop btw.  :P

As I mention above, I know that. Honestly I was thinking of just placing Daniel Craig in front of Piece Bosnan, but as a Photoshop job that's far too easy. I wanted to get a little 'creative' with this. And yes, I agree that this transposed Daniel Pierce dude looks creepy.

Bosnan's hair ruins Craig's face.

I actually liked T-dol very much. But my favorite is definitely Roger More, he's just the smugest!

The way you worded it was a little confusing.

Somehow I just can't go past Connery, the original Bond, even though most of the follow up actors are very compitent at the role.

I miss Pierce... This just can't be Goldeneye without him...

Brosnan is a handsome man.

Yeah, I get ya. I also am a big fan of Connery's work in the Bond franchise, absolutely. Like you said, he IS the original Bond. And it has been tough to fill his spot, but like you also said, they've all done a good job, (except that one guy which only did one movie) Craig included. I think by the time the next Bond movie is released, my favorite will be Craig as well. Cause he is a mighty fine actor.

Exact same.

Actually when I said MOST of the actors are competent at the role, I think the only person I was excluding was George Lazenby - Mr. Solo Bond. I guess he wasn't too bad, although he just didn't fit the role like Connery did. That probably was the biggest flaw with him at the time.

I loved Pierce.

@SPACETURTLE:
I've got to admit that I was never a huge fan of Roger Moore, but I guess everyone has their own opinion.

Daniel's 007 doesn't use gadgets. Horrible 007.

Wow that is bizarre, looks kinda like Kevin Spacey. That actually makes me want to see an image with elements of Roger Moore, Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig all merged together to create super Bond!

Where the fuck is Q?   A flirting with Moneypenny?  I think they went too far into this more serious and rookie bond.  Just one movie.  Because he seduces women but you dont see that in him because he is being a little bitch about getting revenge for his love.  
Now pierce, you could see a guy like that having sex with all the women in one room.  And he was funny.  I think the best movie was Tomorrow Never Dies.  That one was awesome.

I still don't like Craig. That alone is enough reason for me to not buy this game. The original had Pierce Brosnan, so they should either get him back, or (since it's an FPS) just never show his face or have him talk. I mean, when they made a From Russia with Love game a few years back they didn't replace Connery with Brosnan or Craig.

Even in modern day FPS', the cinematic standard which they have to stick by surely means that faces and voices have to be used, so if they wanted to take the authentic route, they should have just got Brosnan like they got Connery for From Russia With Love. I have to admit though, I did find the deepened Scottish accent of Connery in the game to be very jarring from his younger self. Could a really, really good Brosnan sound alike be the answer to the purists?
 
Personally while I prefer Brosnan over Craig in the movies, as an FPS while you will inevitably see and hear Daniel Craig, its not going to be that big a deal.

Brosnan was a good Bond shackled to some rubbish scripts.

He's probably more in line with the Bond of Fleming's books, though. I like him as 007, but I didn't think much of Quantum of Solace. What a confused ADD mess that was.

I haven't been a fan of the newer 007 movies, but isn't meant this a reinvention of the series? As long as ticket sales are up, I guess they must be satisfying the mass market.

Pierce was OK in Goldeneye, but terrible in the other Bond movies he starred in. Of course, those other movies were terrible, so that may have contributed to my opinion.

I think they should've just made a fake Bond and keep the game timeless.
