About the Movie
The fifth of the James Bond seriess.

And each side is blaming the other. It appears that SPECTRE's plan is to provoke WWIII so that it can take control of the world. Based on the novel by Ian Fleming.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: This noisy and wildly violent picture... is evidently pegged to the notion that nothing succeeds like excess. And because it is shamelessly excessive, it is about a half-hour too long.
Fresh: Sean Connery plays 007 with his usual finesse.
Fresh: A well-crafted installment in the Bond series.
Fresh: Sean Connery may have been eying retirement, but he and Bond were by now moulded together, his sleek machismo indelibly imprinted on 007 forever.
Arguably the best Bond movie of all time. I know some might not agree, but it is s good movie. All Bond ones are!
Meet Number 1!
Sean Connery does an impressive job at 007 on a mission to prevent a possible WW3 due to a Specter spacecraft heist. With lines that recall the 60s such as "What's a nice girl like you doing in a place like this?" the viewer is brought back to the early days of the space program. This is the first movie where we actually see Number 1 well portrayed by Donald Pleasance as Blofield. The haunting music by Nancy Sinatra adds to the beauty of Japan. Course no Bond feature is complete without "M" and "Q" with his state of the art gadgets used in the helicoper sequence.
It is definitely worth adding to the collection if you like Sean Connery.
A slow start
Ninjas, guns and a WW3 outcome if Bond doesn't get it done! What's not to like???
Takes place in Japan mostly. Bad guys go into space and capture one soviet and one American space craft. Each country blames the other Bond has to stop it all.
Very slow start .... Rent it first
