Successfully introducing everything that makes Bond great, Dr. No remains one of the best entries of the franchise nearly 3 decades later. The villain is subtly menacing, and Sean Connery gives one of the best performances of his career.

It was a more enjoyable 007 movie that I've seen in a while. The plot was solid and had some enjoyable moments but I don't feel like the villain was very fleshed out and his whole plan didn't really make much sense. There was a few moments of humor and some fun action scenes.

The first of the Bonds is not the best, but it contains exciting action, a lavish set, an iconic villain, and an electrifying performance from Sean Connery who enters with the coolest moment (Bond, James Bond) in cinematic history.

An exciting film with a lot of cool fights.

Classic Bond flick. One of my personal favorites. The boss fight scene at the end is a little lame but the Dr. No character is a mysterious character and provides a lot of intrigue.

The first Bond film which was released quite a long time before my days is the first Bond film I've ever seen and it's one of my favorite.

The first film of the greatest movie franchise of all time. It is still easy to watch today as it has always been. It may not be the greatest Bond movie but it is better than a lot of them. And Connery may not be the best Bond but I'm glad he was the first.

Although it hasn't aged very well technically, Dr. No is a well paced and enjoyable first entry to the Bond franchise.

A good villain and a good plot, a well paced chase, a brilliant Bond and everything else you could desire in a Bond film.

Admittedly not as well handled as its follow up, Dr. No still manages to succeed in spectacular fashion. While providing the right amount of color, style and excitement that everybody wants to see. In the end this film is a must see for the casual movie watcher and a definitive one for the James Bond diehard.

The first Bond movie delivers some classic lines and creates movie tropes however some of it is still slow and bores you to watch.

Solid start to the series. It has no huge action setpieces or silly gadgets, but instead relies on proper intrigue and simple spy tricks (the hair across the cupboard doors, etc), which make it compelling and fun. In certain genre-staple elements, you can see the fundamentals that have ensured the endurance of the series until today. The film is, however, less polished than subsequent instalments, and I'm not a huge fan of Andress...or of Connery's singing :P

It also gets a bit silly when Bond finally meets up with No, but the production design for his lair is awesome, and Joseph Wiseman is good if you can get past the yellowface.

No giant squid?! Pfft!

Dr. No is a good starter for the franchise. Sean Connery gives a great performance but almost everything in this film is done better in other movies.

Ah the one that started it all. Sean Connery's portrayal is not only iconic but still stands as a great benchmark as where and how to measure Bond films. Humor and the thrilling plot still hold up today as well. Dr. No stands as the pioneer in spy films, and remains as the classic it always was.

Dr. No é o primeiro filme da gigantesca franquia 007, que possui o maior numero de sequencias de todos os tempos: 24 ao todo. O começo e singelo e sem muitas surpresas. Bonde, James Bonde nasce pequeno mas com um futuro promissor. Richard Maibaum ,Johanna Harwood e Berkeley Mather são os primeiros roteirista da gigantesca saga de Bonde, mas o arco dramático de é bastante simples e previsível, não envolve muitas surpresas ou grandes aventuras.

James Bond 007 tracks down a man bent on world domination in the Jamacan Islands. Very good first half of the movie up until he gets captured. Ursula Andrus is very nice looking. The last 30 or so minutes dragged. Good but not great.
