Becoming Bond Reviews

March 26, 2020
Like any life well-lived there are plenty of detours into humor, drama, success and regret, and hearing it all from a wizened man with an admirable outlook is exactly the type of feel-good material which makes for a fun flick.

George Lazenby is an interesting guy, but as a complete picture of his life, this movie is woefully inadequate.

Telling his tale direct-to-camera and in his own words, Lazenby makes for a hilarious and charismatic guide to an incredible story.

Very funny.

"Becoming Bond" is a delightful dip into someone's own version of their past. It might be light on tuxedo talk, but the biggest takeaway is how much more there is learn.

Ultimately Becoming Bond rests on George Lazenby - and the actor, cantankerous, witty, gregarious and just a little sad, ably shoulders the responsibility.

Much of the film is hilarious and Lazenby is a remarkable storyteller.

It makes for great cinema about great cinema.

We get to know a man who relished almost every minute of what he experienced.

The charming, skillful storyteller George Lazenby himself is the best reason to watch Becoming Bond. The reenactments, while often funny and involving, simply can't hold a candle to the man and his anecdotes.

Plays like an iffy "Funny or Die" short, lacking polish, focus, and laughs to truly become the raucous celebration of a bad business decision it wants to be.

[A] rather A&E/TLC treatment of Lazenby's life.
May 19, 2017
There is a potentially interesting film-documentary or fiction-in Lazenby's life and career, but Becoming Bond, despite its ambitions, is not it.
May 17, 2017
Intimate, irreverent and at times laugh-out-loud funny ...
May 17, 2017
A bizarre hybrid of documentary and feature...

The result is as slick as it is hilarious, a perfect portrait of an aging ladies' man and irascible rebel agent.

A film about a guy who did life his own way, and it's an enjoyable ride.
