Dench had a good scene in Goldeneye
but I feel from a character standpoint her roll was over-expanded for no reason other than the fact that she's a big star. All M is supposed to do is tell 007 what country to fly to after the opening credits and then get out of the way. Now it seems like every bond movie has to have 5-10 minutes of her looking at a computer screen or talking into a cellphone and getting irritated.
