Goldfinger 1964

Goldfinger

Critics Consensus

Goldfinger is where James Bond as we know him comes into focus - it features one of 007's most famous lines ("A martini. Shaken, not stirred") and a wide range of gadgets that would become the series' trademark.

Audience Reviews for Goldfinger

    Simply one of the best entries in the 007 franchise. Goldfinger had the elements to form a good spy thriller. The story was fun and quite humorous at times. Pussy Galore's flying circus was too silly but Aston Martin was an incredible addition.

    The gold-plated edition of early Bond, this perfectly shaken martini of devastating wit, action, and intrigue also introduces some lasting finishing touches to the franchise all of its own. Ironically, it bares noting from the get-go that this was the first 007 flick to use the line "A martini...shaken, not stirred" as a calling card for the suavest and deadliest of superspies. Dr. No and From Russia with Love established the brand but Goldfinger put all of the elements to their most brilliant effect and gives all future 4-Star Bond chapters a run for their Moneypenny. In this, the quintessential 007 film, James Bond (Connery) uncovers a plot to contaminate the Fort Knox gold reserve while investigating a gold magnate's (Gert Frobe) smuggling empire. Though his spyware started a slippery slope into camp from this film on (inflating dart in Live and Let Die; the invisible car in Die Another Day), the geeky gadgets keep up the cheeky cheer in this outing, Bond's seagull-hat disguise, Oddjob's (himself, one of the great series henchmen) steel-rimmed hat, and Goldfinger's laser among the best. Also, Q's laboratory first gets walked through, the Aston Martin first gets driven, and a pre-title action sequence first kicks off a new spy adventure (Robert Shaw choking out a foot solider wearing a Bond mask in From Russia with Love just doesn't count). Of all of the early films and their lasting effect on pop culture, Goldfinger uses all of the tricks in Bond's exploding briefcase to the most well-rounded heights. The tone, humor, casting, and action sequences fire on all cylinders in a perfect full circle of crazy cool entertainment. Future Bond movies would boast better examples of each of these elements but the 3rd film uses them consistently well and its riff-worthiness in the Internet age only speaks volumes as to its longevity and ability to kill audiences. Bottom line: Midas Touche

    One of the most famous Bonds for a number of reasons, Odd Job, First time we have decent gadgets and plus a soundtrack plus many memorable scenes, As for the film itself it has a good story easy to follow and told well, Even though there's not allot of action it still manages to keep us entertained that's something the first two never did, There was a nice twist at the end that worked well, Overall one of the better Bonds.

    As a James Bond fan, I hate myself for saying this, but Goldfinger has not aged well. No doubt that the film will go down in history as the film that defined the character of 007. Sean Connery's brilliant performance established the character's smooth persona. The opening fight scene alone is one of the most satisfying action scenes in all of James Bond's films, aptly ended with Connery uttering the hilarious pun, "Shocking." Not to mention that Goldfinger marked the first time Bond orders his iconic drink "shaken not stirred." Unfortunately, the film looks quite dated. The misogynist undertones in the way Bond controls women as well as the ridiculously sexist names like Pussy Galore come off today as too objectifying to overlook. The action scenes are cringe worthy, and the plot seems rather flat when compared to Bond's latest adventures. That's not to detract from the fact that Goldfinger is required viewing for any Bond fan. This is the film that established the character as we have come to know it. It's also interesting to watch this film to see how far we've come since its release, both for the better and for the worse.
