      Diamonds Are Forever Reviews

      Prev Next

      With a sense of lifelessness, Diamonds Are Forever easily is the most boring Bond film.

      Full Review | Original Score: D | Aug 28, 2022

      It would be Connery's final appearance in the official series, and he goes out in style.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Sep 25, 2021

      Diamonds Are Forever might not be the greatest showcase for Connery's talents, but it's still an enjoyable outing in its own right, one that values humor over thrills.

      Full Review | Sep 16, 2020

      This might be the last time for another several features that Bond actually feels like a secret agent.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/10 | Aug 29, 2020

      Maybe I'm doing Diamonds a disservice. There are some fun moments and some silly moments that I can't defend (like multiple Blofelds) but sadly I felt cheated (and still do) on what this film could have been.

      How good it was to see the gadgets again, the gymnastic grace of the fantasy-violence, the comedy of the imaginary sex, and that quality of the Bond pictures at their best which I can only call geniality.

      Has some dramatic merit and is one of the better films in the entire franchise.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Oct 31, 2019

      The script is poor, the comedy ill-timed and the ending anticlimactic. What more can I say?

      Full Review | Original Score: 1/5 | Jan 27, 2019

      Has its flaws, but being a boring Bond movie isn't one of them. It may not hit top tier status, but Connery makes "Diamonds Are Forever" another gem in the 007 mythos.

      Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/10 | Oct 25, 2015

      Connery's last official Bond film is energetic but violent.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | May 20, 2014

      After an hiatus, Sean Connery was lured back to the series with a huge paycheck but the end result is decidedly a mediocre feature.

      Full Review | Original Score: B- | Dec 14, 2012

      After struggling with a few films to find the right vibe and tone for a Bond film, DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER finds a nice balance that would work for a while.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Oct 23, 2012

      Thanks to the clarity and cut of past 007 films, Sean Connery will sparkle forever. But with a dearth of action and only a fat paycheck as motivation, "Diamonds" feels less like a triumphant return and more like a cheesed-up cabaret version of Bond.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | Aug 10, 2012

      Makes the disastrous, franchise-altering decision to underscore how fusty Bond is by diving right into campines.

      Full Review | Original Score: 6/10 | Jul 15, 2012

      The clumsily executed climax reduces the quality of the film considerably.

      Full Review | Original Score: B | Feb 13, 2009

      Bond looks better than ever, partly because Sean Connery has returned to play him.

      Full Review | Oct 13, 2008

      Connery has a ball with great stunts, snappy dialogue and a bevy of typically Bondish beauties.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Apr 24, 2008

      Diamonds Are Forever doesn't carry the same quality or flair as its many predecessors.

      Full Review | Apr 24, 2008

      Assorted ladies, a few quick lines, and one good chase, making for a mediocre entry in the series.

      Full Review | Apr 24, 2008

      A gentle burlesque of the story elements established by the first six entries ...
