Scan Connery is such a disappointingly wooden and boorish Bond that the script's touches of grim humour go for less than they need.

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.

The James Bond series started in great style with this cleverly conceived dose of sheer escapism that, unlike later episodes, remained true to the essence of Ian Fleming's super-spy novels.

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

Has an age-old Licence to Thrill

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.

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.

An entertaining piece of tongue-in-cheek action hokum.

Essential viewing for any Bond fanatic.

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.
