In this 14-karat adventure and the third film in the 007 series, James Bond is pitted against one of his most memorable villains, the power-hungry and infamous international gold smuggler Auric Goldfinger. Goldfinger is not planning to rob Fort Knox; he intends to detonate a nuclear device in the fortress and contaminate the world's gold supply with radiation, making it unusable for hundreds of years...and increasing by tenfold the value of his own gold holdings, making him the richest, most powerful man on Earth.
Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Goldfinger is where James Bond as we know him comes into focus - it features one of 007's most famous lines ("A martini. Shaken, not stirred") and a wide range of gadgets that would become the series' trademark.
Thrilling action comedy may be the best Bond.
