After George Lazenby's departure (he feared he would be typecast) the producers managed to tempt Connery back into the fold one more time with a $10M paycheck (which Connery gave to charity) and the opportunity to make a film of his own choosing (the powerful `Offence').
This time out Bond is investigating the smuggling of diamonds, and finds that Blofeld is yet again manufacturing some weapon with which to hold the world to ransom.
The film is big and lavish, and marks what I consider to be the start of a downwards slope for Bond. The emphasis is less on plot, and more on big stunts and humour. The stunts are big exciting and the humour (especially Mr Kidd and Mr Wint are generally well done, but the tone is very different to the glory days of `From Russia With Love', or even the preceding `On Her Majesty's Secret Service'. There is less atmosphere, and less of a feeling that Bond and the world are really in any kind of danger. Personally it is not wholly to my taste.
The guest stars shine - Charles Gray is an effective Blofeld. Slightly camper than his predecessors in the role, but he still manages to exude an aura of evil genius. Jimmy Dean (a country singer who originally sang Big Bad John) makes a decent good ole country boy Texan millionaire and Jill St John makes a decent Bond girl, a bit less of a damsel in distress than most which makes a pleasant change. Three stars for the film itself.
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.Read more ›
Bond 7 and 007 is assigned to find out who is stock piling all the black market diamonds. This leads him to a sinister weapon being manufactured in space that can destroy major cities, the architect of such vileness? SPECTRE chief Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the man who murdered Bond's wife and someone Bond thought he had already located and killed.
With George Lazenby withdrawing from the franchise after just the one film, off to massage his ego and take further bad advice from those around him, Albert R. Broccoli & Harry Saltzman set about making Bond sustainable box office in the 1970s. American actor John Gavin (Psycho/Spartacus) had signed on to fill the tuxedo, but armed with wads of cash the producers managed to entice Connery back to the role he had previously fell out of love with. Helped, too, that Connery's post Bond movies, his last outing had been You Only Live Twice in 1967, had hardly set the box office alight. It seemed a long shot, but Connery stunned the movie world by agreeing to once again play the role that many would come to know him for.
Back came Connery, back came director Guy Hamilton and back came Shirley Bassey to sing the title song (a true Bond classic it proved to be as well), these were reassuring signs, as was having Blofeld remain on villain duties.Read more ›
Once you can get over the massive shift in tone from the previous film, or the fact that the film rarely makes much of an effort in its determination to part you from your money, it's still moderately entertaining in its very undemanding way. But there's no disguising the fact that after the first half the film becomes increasingly reliant on Connery's starpower, leaving a shoddy patchwork of half-hearted setpieces and weak puns as the filmmakers imaginations dry up. Unfortunately Connery walks through it all with the satisfied laziness of a man who knows he's being paid too much and is on triple-overtime while Guy Hamilton directs like a man determined to finish on the dot of 6:00pm come hell or high water rather than lose those restaurant reservations. It's particularly telling that when Bond trips slightly when walking with M after the title sequence they didn't even reshoot the scene - too much of the film has a "Nah, that'll do" feel to it.Read more ›

A bit of a disappointment. Some of the action and stunts are quite well executed but to me the film doesn't have the same impact that a film like Goldfinger has. Read morePublished 23 days ago by Lee09
