I am surprised that there is not one kissing scene between Sean and Jill in this film unlike other James Bond films, I wonder is my DVD censored?

Generally, Bond fans tend to fit into two camps. The casual fan expects a Bond film to have lots of great stunts, cheap jokes, fast cars and faster women. The casual fan will say that his favourite film is "Goldfinger", his/her favourite Bond will be Connery, Moore or Brosnan and they'll usual hate Dalton's portrayal. Now the Bond connoisseur will talk for hours about Ian Fleming's vision, how great "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" is and how Timothy Dalton saved the Bond franchise from the fires of Hades in just two films. I'm a Bond connoisseur and I don't like "Diamonds are Forever". You can't please everyone but let me give you my reasons.
This is not Connery's finest hour. Most of scenes are largely played for laughs and though Connery does well it never feels like he is playing Bond, he's just being himself. Broad comedy does not suit Connery's Bond and it is an area in which Roger Moore's Bond rules as king. Compare this with "From Russia with Love" and I'm sure some will agree.
The main problem I have with "Diamonds are Forever" is that it is not very engaging. The previous film, "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" almost had me in tears at the end and this adventure has absolutely no emotional wallop whatsoever. What is more is that the tone feels very inconsistent and the film suffers as a result. Grisly deaths are unskilfully blended with camp humour and by the end of the film I felt unfulfilled.
Even though generally I think "Diamonds are Forever" has aged poorly, the set design and production still impresses. This Bond film is distinguished by the fact that it is probably the most extravagant, colourful and bizarre. As to whether this is a good are a bad thing I'll leave you to decide.
As for me, I'll stick to my favourites, thanks.

Just to warn you, I bought this as a real bond fan. I think OHMSS is one of the best, but this next one is soooooo weak. You really can see where Austin Powers came from.

I do like this final outing for Connery in the Original Bond series. Good picture quality. Once again should have been left in the original mono soundtrack.

Sean Connery, need I say more. Excellent film, lots of action with the best James Bond ever. I would definitely recommend if you are a Sean Connery fan.
