About as perfect a franchise-starter as you could imagine and certainly accomplishes the task of leaving you eagerly anticipating Bond's next adventure.

The first James Bond cast a relatively unknown actor, Sean Connery, who forever defined 007 as a cool, suave, womanizing agent, adept at delivering witty one liners.

In the end, it's more gumshoe mystery than action-adventure and, comparative to almost everything that followed, very low-key. But legends must start somewhere, and looking back at its reminders of how Bond wasn't always "Bond" are fascinating.

Antagony & Ecstasy

The low-key mystery plot and the resolutely human-sized drama of it all makes this one of the sanest of all Bond pictures.

It's terrific entertainment, to be sure, but its unevenness keeps up from being a great film.

Capably brings together Caribbean travelogue, Gropius-type architecture, and cardboard computers with "danger level" plaques

The Bond formula is established in this first, arguably more credible Ian Fleming adaptation.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The first entry in what was to become the most profitable movie series of all time is a solid, surprisingly modest spy thriller, enlivened by Sean Connery's screen charisma and occasional hints of the extravagance to come.
