From Amazon.co.uk

After years of enduring Roger Moore in the role of James Bond, it was good to have Sean Connery back in 1983 for Never Say Never Again, a one-time-only trip down 007's memory lane. Connery's Bond, a bit of a dinosaur in the British secret service at (then) 52, is still in demand during times of crisis. Sadly, the film is not very good. In this rehash of Thunderball, Bond is pitted against a worthy underwater villain (Klaus Maria Brandauer); and while the requisite Bond Girls include beauties Kim Basinger and Barbara Carrera, they can't save the movie. The script has several truly dumb passages, among them a (gasp) video-game duel between 007 and his nemesis that now looks utterly anachronistic. For Connery fans, however, this widescreen print of the Irvin Kershner (The Empire Strikes Back) film is a chance to say a final goodbye to a perfect marriage of actor and character. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Sean Connery is back for his final performance as agent James Bond in this high-velocity action thriller. Agent 007 is hurled into a pulse-pounding race to save the world from Armageddon when two atomic warheads are hijacked by the evil SPECTRE organisation.

This edition includes audio commentary and three featurettes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slick, enjoyable but not premium Bond 12 Dec 2007
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
At once the victim of impossible expectations after years of false starts and rumors about Connery's return to Bondage and also a breath of fresh air as the Roger Moore Bond films increasingly floundered, Never Say Never Again was a welcome riposte to the worst excesses of the EON franchise in 1983, but time hasn't been that kind to it. There are certainly some horrible miscalculations, Carrera's cartoonish villainess Fatima Blush (like Faye Dunaway on steroids), Edward Fox's self-parody as M, Pamela Salem's simperingly moronic Moneypenny and an embarrassingly over-the-top Rowan Atkinson's horribly unfunny Nigel Small-Fawcett among them, not to mention that problematic and much-despised easy listening score from Michel Legrand.

A famously troubled production, with Cubby Broccoli frightening studios, investors and co-stars away through years of lawsuits and Connery taking against the film's inexperienced producer Jack Schwartzman so violently that he would reportedly hide whenever the actor came anywhere near his office, most of the scars aren't visible in the finished product. Thankfully the worst excesses of the legendary unfilmed but sadly rather silly and OTT script Connery and Len Deighton penned in the early 70s, Warhead (which climaxed with a hang-glider attack on the Statue of Liberty and boasted a villain with his own underwater lair), were also toned down, albeit largely for budget reasons. With only a watered-down version of their radio-controlled sharks remaining, this version is at least a little more grounded than the rampant silliness that had seen the Bonds stray unrecognisably far from their roots in Ian Fleming's novels.

4.0 out of 5 stars A blast as the 'unofficial' Bond movie 4 July 2012
By Benminx
Format:DVD
It's easy to dismiss 'Never Say Never Again' as the 'unofficial' Bond movie, made during legal wrangling over who owned the rights to the character (note the conspicuously absent 'gun barrel' opening credits that were traditional in all the official Bonds of this period). However, to do so would be to write off a hugely fun adventure. Essentially a remake of the more serious 'Thunderball', this has Bond trying to retrieve stolen nuclear weapons in the Caribbean while battling lethal killers and shark-laden traps, and has barely a dull moment. Laden with gadgets, the scenery, action and direction (by 'Empire Strikes Back' director Ivin Kershner) are all great. Connery throws himself into the movie with humour and enthusiasm, Barbara Carrera is enormous fun camping it up as a Euro-villainess with a vicious streak, and Klus Maria Brandauer is suitably enigmatic and threatening as the criminal mastermind working for SPECTRE.
Great fun.

WARNING. This region A blu-ray disc has been coded differently to every other region A blu-ray disc I've encountered so far. It unfortunately would NOT play on my all region blu-ray player, giving the message that it required a region A ONLY player. I have played many region A blu-ray discs on my player, but for some strange reason, this one must have been coded differently to stop overseas buyers from enjoying this movie.

As for the film, it's not Sean's best Bond but but it is highly entertaining anyway.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the official Bond 8 April 2013
By TS
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is not a part of the official series of James Bond films, so you will not hear the unmistakable guitar riff here.
It is far from being the best Sean Connery Bond film, but not the worst either.
It is however much better than all the Roger Moore Bond films and much much better than the two last ones he starred in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't be too hard on Sean 8 Mar 2003
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I read all the reviews of this Bond film and think folk are being a little hard. Yes, it is no "Goldfinge"r or "For Your Eyes Only" but it is a good film nonetheless. The point about Connery looking old is the 'point' methinks. Bond has been through a hard life (being orphaned, expulsion from school, becomming widowed etc. See learn your facts before criticising) and it is this hard life that shows in the film. Although a superhero he is still human!!
And the criticism about no action scenes??? What film were you watching?? There is a wonderful motorbike sequence, a great horse ride and a super Bondesque fight scene with none other than Pat Roach (The huge wrestler from Aufweidersein Pet.) Also for Coronation Street fans the late Maxine Peacock's mother is in it!!!!!!! (but don't let that put you off)
I am not old enough to remember Connery first time round but believe this is a worthy edition to the 'proper' James Bond films. As for the on line reports about Connery acting like a dirty old man, I know many girls around 25 years old who still say he is the sexiest man on earth some 20 years after the film, so there.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unofficial James Bond 24 Sep 2012
By ReviewBlog51 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
For me, Sean Connery was the definitive James Bond and in 1983 he reprised the role again for 'Never Say Never Again', a uneven (unofficial) remake of 1965's 'Thunderball'. It's a shame that he couldn't have bowed out of the role in a better movie than this, although I know that it was rather popular at the time, no doubt fans were just greatful to have another chance to see him as Agent 007.

It's a film with a comedy edge, I did appreciate some of this but found bits to be over the top. The storyline also seems to drag on and the acting varies. Sean Connery is as good as he can be (if a little older) with what is a rather average script, I particularly liked Bond girl Barbara Carrera and Klaus Maria Brandaue plays a good villain.

Unlike so many Bond films, this one doesn't have a great opening song and to be honest, in terms of typical Bond films, not a great deal of action takes place. However, there are a few moments in the film that do hold up and some scenes that aren't bad at all (still, not enough for me to rate it three stars).

In my opinion, 'Never Say Never Again' is not actually the worst Bond film, but should appeal more to completists only. It's better to rent it instead and stick to purchasing the Bond classics. Whilst I managed to sit through the whole thing - 'Never Say Never Again' is certainly not one of them.

The DVD is very basic and the only special feature is the one trailer.
