Anyhoo, I honestly did not enjoy TWINE as much as the prior Brosnan entries until I recently watched it again. Not too terribly long ago, I even posted in a "Which is worse - DAD or TWINE" thread and was a bit harsh toward the movie. But upon further review, I've revised my opinion rather dramatically. Many of the "problems" I had always perceived it to have were, frankly, not there, and it was much sharper than I remembered. There are issues, but those are well-documented on this board and others. In all, it is an underrated entry that (like the film which immediately preceded it) deserves a much better reputation.
I'm standing side by side with DaveBond and others here, guns drawn, determined to defend TWINE to the end!
YOLT's point above about rewatching TWINE after not seeing it for awhile (I know, I know, I'm just asking to get hammered by that comment so please, no comments like "yeah, after a twenty-year gap" etc") are exactly how I felt the last time I watched the film. I had avoided it for a couple of years and then I rewatched it, I was pleasantly surprised at how well it had aged, how much better it was than I had remembered.
I do believe, because of the it's plot, because of it's attemept to emphasise character, it is going to age better than other films in the canon (most certainly DAD that follows it, and a couple of Sir Rog's entries).
So bashers - if you haven't seen it in awhile, give it another chance before your next bash! And if you don't change your mind, those of us in here in this TWINE love-in will just have our helmets as you bash away.
Alright, got to put the kettle on. All this bash-chat is making me thirsty....
