] David Eimer of "Premiere" wrote that "the trademark humour is in short supply" and that "Goldeneye isn't classic Bond by any stretch of the imagination."cite web | title=GoldenEye - Premiere & Press | publisher=MI6.co.uk | url=http://www.mi6.co.uk/sections/articles/ge_premiere.php3?t=ge&s=ge | accessdate=2007-05-26] Madeleine Williams said that "there are plenty of stunts and explosions to take your mind off the plot."

"GoldenEye" was edited in order to be guaranteed a PG-13 rating from the MPAA and a 12 rating from the BBFC. The cuts included the visible bullet impact to Trevelyan's head when he is shot in the prologue, several additional deaths during the sequence in which Onatopp guns down the workers at the Severnaya station, more explicit footage and violent behaviour in the Admiral's death, extra footage of Onatopp's death, and Bond giving her a rabbit punch in the car. In 2006, the film was remastered and re-edited for the James Bond Ultimate Edition DVD in which the cuts including headbutts and violent sound effects were restored, causing the rating to be changed to 15.

"GoldenEye" was the second and final Bond film to be adapted to a novel by novelist John Gardner, and was to be his penultimate Bond novel. The book closely follows the film's storyline, but Gardner added a violent sequence prior to the opening bungee jump in which Bond kills a group of Russian guards, a change that the video game "GoldenEye 007" retained.
