Sin Magazine

The film geek in me wants to praise it, but the film critic in me wants to expose its flaws. I still have a soft spot for it, but if I'm being truly honest, it's kind of lackluster.

007's silver screen debut. Not for young kids.

While it may appear tame by the standards of the later productions, it's an entertaining look back in movie history at a project that developed into a worldwide phenomenon.

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

A low budget and moments of unintentional camp can't derail Bond's irresistbly cool debut.

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

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.

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.

...the next two installments improved the formula--but certainly Dr. No must be ranked among the best.

Dr. No was the first and perhaps most sober of the Bond films, not relying so much on easy one-liners and increasingly silly puns.

The first Bond is still one of the best Bonds, though modern audiences won't be wowed by the gadgetry that has become accelerated over the years.
