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.
