Product Description

James Bond (Sean Connery) is sent to Japan to keep the peace between the superpowers when a SPECTRE rocket intercepts an American space capsule carrying a nuclear warhead. In between visits to the geisha house and flights in his Little Nellie, 007 manages to track down SPECTRE's secret base and its evil mastermind Blofeld (Donald Pleasence). Will he be able to stop Blofeld's evil plans or is this really the end of Bond and the world as we know it? After this fifth entry in the series, Connery took a break from the title role, only to return in 'Diamonds Are Forever' (1971).

From Amazon.co.uk

You Only Live Twice film boasts the best of the Bond title songs (this one sung on a dreamy track by Nancy Sinatra), but the movie itself is one of the weaker ones of the Sean Connery phase of the 007 franchise. The story concerns an effort by the evil organisation SPECTRE to start a world war, but the not-so-super villain behind the plot is the awfully civilised Donald Pleasence. The thin script is by Roald Dahl (shouldn't we have expected a better Bond nemesis from the creator of mad genius Willy Wonka?), and direction is by British veteran Lewis Gilbert (Alfie). But the movie can't hold a candle to Dr. No, From Russia with Love, or Goldfinger. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
For his fifth cinema outing superspy James Bond is sent off to Japan in another fight against SPECTRE. This time the criminal organisation is trying to start world war three using captured Russian and American space vehicles.

There are big thrills aplenty as Sean Connery's Bond stumbles around in Japan, trying to uncover the threads of the scheme. Bond gets into scrape after scrape leading to ever more impressive escapes and stunts, all of which builds up to the thrilling final showdown which is suitably action packed and full of big bangs.

Introducing Bond's nemesis Blofeld for the first time, here played by a very creepy and evil looking Donald Pleasance, and the idea of a supervillain hiding out in a disused volcano lair, this is a thrilling ride from start to finish. Characterisation takes a bit of a back seat to the stunts, but it is an exciting ride none the less.

This ultimate edition really is the best version of the film I have owned. The picture has been lovingly restored and cleaned up, and looks amazing. Really, I am not just saying that. It looks superb. The sound has been similarly treated and there is an option to listen to it in 5.1 DTS surround, which is truly exceptional.

As well as the superb presentation of the film, there is also a host of extras, original trailers, informative audio commentaries and the such. These are exhaustive and some of them quite interesting. But these really a garnish for the main course, which is the film itself.

This is an excellent release, and does this classic film justice. This series of `Ultimate editions' really sets the standard for film releases. It really does not get any better.

Trivia.
1)This is my personnel favourite of the Sean Connery Bond film's.
2)Sean Connery announced that this would be his last film playing James Bond (Never say never Sean).
3)Sean Connery was moody throughout this production berating a journalist who commented on his appearance not being Bond like to which Connery replied "I'm not James Bond I'm Sean Connery & Sean Connery wears these clothes" & he upset the Japanese press when he made a comment that he didn't find Japanese women attractive.
4)Sean Connery had fell out with Harry Saltzman & Cubby Broccoli over his contract & pay & promised he'd refuse to do any filming if Harry Saltzman was present on set & made good on his word when Saltzman turned up one day to the set so as promised Connery stopped working mid scene & wouldn't continue until Saltzman had left the set.
5)Bond doesn't wear a tuxedo in this film.
6)Bond doesn't drive a car in this film.
7)Blofield was originally played by actor Jan Werich for 1 weeks filming but wasn't deemed suitable in the role & was recast with Donald Pleasence.
8)Blofield never blinks once in this film.
9)This version of Blofield was spoofed by Mike Myers in the Austin Powers movie's.
10)The budget for this movie was $9.5 million dollars a million of which went on Ken Adams impressive volcano lair set.
11)A spoof version of Casino Royale was released the same year as this Eon Bond film, This non canon spoof starred David Niven, Petter Sellers, Orson Wells, Woody Allen & Original Bond actress Ursula Andress it went through 5 directors & was deemed a flop.
12)Burt Kwouk features as SPECTRE Agent 3.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER on 1 May 2012
Format: DVD
You Only Live Twice is directed by Lewis Gilbert and written by Roald Dahl. It stars Sean Connery, Tetsuro Tamba, Teru Shimada, Akiko Wakabayashi, Mie Hama, Karin Dor and Donald Pleasence. Music is scored by John Barry and cinematography by Freddie Young.

Bond 5 and Connery once again tackles the role of 007. With American and Soviet space craft mysteriously vanishing from space, both nations are laying the blame at the other's door. Sensing a nuclear war could break out, M assigns Bond to Japan to investigate if there might be a third party stirring the hornets nest. Teaming up with the Japanese secret service, Bond uncovers evidence that SPECTRE is behind the plot to pitch the East and the West against each other.

This organisation does not tolerate failure.

Thunderball had broke box office records for Bond, gadgetry, outlandish stunts and a quip on the tongue had proved most profitable. It was planned originally that On Her Majesty's Secret Service would be number 5 in the series, but a change of tack to go for You Only Live Twice as the story gave producers Broccoli & Saltzman the scope for a giganticus enormous production. However, it may be set in Japan and feature a Bond/Blofeld conflict, but Roald Dahl's script bares little resemblance to Ian Fleming's source novel. Although a massive financial success with a Worldwide gross of over $111 million, Bond 5 took $30 million less than Thunderball. Strange since this is a better film. Can we attribute the drop to it being a space age saga? Maybe, the rebirth of sci-fi was a few years away, and of course Bond had lost some fans who had grown tired, like Connery, of 007 relying on gadgets instead of brains and brawn to complete his missions.
