Pierce Brosnan criticizes Spectre but praises Daniel Craig's performance

Unfortunately Daniel Craig's latest outing as James Bond hasn't quite reached SKYFALL's level of critical success, but by most accounts, it's still a fun entry in the long running series. However, former Bond actor Pierce Brosnan has spoken out about the film and lobbed a few criticism's its way. Brosnan spoke with Hitfix and laid out his problems with the film.

I was looking forward to it enormously, [but] I thought it was too long. The story was kind of weak — it could have been condensed. It kind of went on too long. It really did.

Pierce Brosnan went on to criticize the more recent Bond films from taking too many cues from the Bourne movies, but had nothing but praise for Daniel Craig's performance.

Daniel, in the fourth go-round, has ownership of it. He had a nice looseness to him. He’s a mighty warrior, and I think he found a great sense of himself in this one with the one-liners and a nice playfulness there. Just get a tighter story, and he’ll have another classic.

Daniel Craig has made noises that he'd like to leave James Bond behind after SPECTRE, but Pierce Brosnan feels confident that Craig will return, saying "give him another year off here, and he'll be ready to rock and roll for sure."
