Don't be too hard on Sean,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Never Say Never Again [DVD]  (DVD)
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.
