Fun, but average
Seventh Bond movie, and a very important film within the 007 phenomenon, since it represents Connery's farewell to the role that made him famous. It was directed by Guy Hamilton, which means that the tone of the movie is very similar to Hamilton's Goldfinger. There is lots of over-the-top action scenes, plenty of childish humor and a constant sense of self-parody. It is actually the silliest Bond movie with Connery, but it is a fun movie. The plot makes no sense, so Hamilton makes sure the viewer has a good time. I liked how the pre-titles sequence alludes to the previous movie in the series (the bleak On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969)). Considering what had happened to Bond during his last confrontation with super-villain Blofeld, it makes perfect scene that 007 is obsessed with killing his nemesis. Unfortunately, since the actual film is so laid back, the story never fully explores 007's feelings of revenge, depriving the story of an interesting angle. I also dislike how Blofeld is played by so many different actors (the same goes for Bond's CIA friend Felix). This time around Charles Gray plays the nefarious villain, and while he does a good job, I still think Telly Savalas did a better job. Jill St. John is a great Bond girl. Most interesting is the fact that assassins Mr. Kidd and Mr. Wint, are obviously gay (and lovers), and the film does not attempt to disguise their homosexuality. Interestingly, Connery reminds the main distracting flaw in the film. Throughout the film he looks tired, and unanimated, so I hate to say this, but I'm glad he left the series - he looks as if he is sick of the whole thing. He also looks 60, which is strange since his replacement (Roger Moore) is older than him, but in actuality looks much younger. Anyhow, I don't think this is Connery's worst movie (that dubious distinction goes to You Only Live Twice (1967)), but the film really offers nothing new. It is a fun movie, but nothing to get excited about.
