Artistically, Bond's sixth entry, the only one to star Aussie George Lazenby, is much better than given credit to, though commercially it was one of the weakest.

[Concentrates] more on the man than the equipment.

Besides not being a terribly good Bond entry, it's also a poorly made film.

An odd interruption in the Bond canon that's neither an unsung masterpiece nor an unmitigated disaster. It's half terrific, half terrible -the former most often when George Lazenby shuts up and Peter Hunt's masterful action instincts take over.

Even hobbled as he is by a character he doesn't entirely get, and Peter Hunt's antagonistic direction, and the film's annoying tendency to remind us of Connery... George azenby puts up a good fight.

007 in ski country -- and marriage territory?

Just as entertaining and as visually attractive as the five previous Bond films.

Film of break-neck physical excitement and stunning visual attractions in which George Lazenby replaced Sean Connery as James Bond.

Director Peter Hunt manages to inject some life into this 1969 exercise with a wonderful ski chase, but otherwise the film is a bore.

October 13, 2008
Ditching flash in favour of character development, this stylish and energetic entry is one of the best films in the series. Lazenby woz robbed.

Empire Magazine

Certainly no worse than the later Roger Moore efforts and, if only for curiosity value, is well worth a look.

Lazenby is very weak, but the movie is rather good

Lazenby isn't all that bad, really. Top Bond production overall helps.

Mémorable pour ses excès beaucoup plus que sa pertinence scénaristique

George Lazenby took Bond's reins from Sean Connery in this sixth 007 outing, an unfairly oft-maligned film that, while distinctively different than the rest of the series, is still quite fun to watch.

The Bond films were bad enough even with the partially ironic performances of Connery.

It's ironic that this, perhaps the weakest Bond film, contains the character's most important piece of development.
| Original Score: 2/5

What are Bond's problems now? They're too numerous, as usual, to hold the constant attention of anyone other than a charter member of Her Majesty's Secret Service.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You
March 22, 2005
The film is often unjustly treated as an odd footnote to the series, an awkward moment from the series' puberty that the producers would just as soon forget.
