Goldfinger contains one iconic moment after another. While some of its special effects haven't stood the test of time, most of the rest has endured, including Connery's charisma, those amazing sets, the bombastic title song, and the most famous car in the world.

famously one of the most memorable bond films. the plot, being an old bond movie, is simple but has class and connery delivers the one-liners with perfection. many of the iconic bond elements started from this third adventure in the series.

Sean Connery IS James Bond

Goldfinger is not exactly art, but it stays in the memory: it's wildly entertaining, equally thrilling and exhilarating, and slightly goofy. Just have fun.

The Bond film that got me interested in the franchise. Connery is purely fantastic as Bond, and the film is so enjoyable that i recommend it to anyone

Still the quintessential Bond flick all these decades later, and it's not hard to see why. The gorgeous souped-up cars, the classy ladies, the superbaddies, the gadgets, the villain traps, the one-liners; it's the one that laid the groundwork for those that came after. It still holds up now, at least most of the time. The writing and the attitude towards women is questionable at best and reprehensible at worst. Imagine if in a film nowadays a man forced himself onto a woman and romantic music started playing. There would be justifiable outrage, and it really marks the film out as a product of its time. The effects are also pretty laughable, as is the decision to artificially enhance the speed of cars chases by filming it in fast motion. Also, and I'm not sure whether this was intentional, but Bond is more of an observer in this film than a participant. Most of his time is spent as Goldfinger's prisoner, powerless to stop him. He could be easily disposed of course, but Bond Villain has to Bond Villain. Aside from the odd dodgy patch here and there's its still a great film, an enjoyable experience, and a testament to Bond's continuing popularity.

'Goldfinger' is, by far, my favourite James Bond movie.

Overrated entry in the series. While it is so highly regarded, it simply does not surpass from russia with love or even dr. No, both of which have a better story and not so dependent on gadgets and gadget laden cars. Oddjob ANd goldfinGer for all the praise they get, their flaws are a problem. ODdjob is too robotic, too cartoonish with no personality. He comes up short compared to the more human and memorable grant who gave us the best bond fight scene of all time in the previous film. Goldfinger while showing appropriate lunacy for a bond film is Only intimidating when ofdjob is around and his demise was anti-climatic.

The best of the Sean Connery "Bond" movies with some pretty entertaining action scenes and some cool gadgets.
½ January 7, 2018
One of the best Bond movies, superb and fresh for being one of the shortest Bond films.

BOND is great, but better is the VILLAIN. Amazing scheme, great action and very fun and exciting.
½ December 27, 2017
Probably the ultimate James Bond movie and the formula they have tried to recreate with varying degrees of fortunes.
Connery is at his charming best here and everything works.

Gadgets: 5/5 Impressively upped the ante here. The Aston Martin would become every boys dream car and laser beams!
Girls: 3/5 Honor Blackman
as Pussy Galore is not in it very long but the name left a lasting impression
Villains: 5/5 Gert Fröbe
as Auric Goldfinger is arguably the best bond villain. Oddjob was pretty cool too.
Bond Theme 5/5 The irrepressible Shirley Bassy would become the benchmark

This, the third take on agent 007 really pulls out all of the stops. Providing us with a constantly moving, always entertaining, and highly intriguing plot. Most of all though, it continues to prove to us, that although he may be the first actor to ever grace the screen in the titular role, Sean Connery is still by far the best actor to have ever portrayed James Bond, and ultimately proves that this, his third time in the titular role, is literally the gold standard for the series, and even the genre.

i wish life was more like this movie

Goldfinger is the quintessential and (many would argue) essential Bond. Featuring a series best villain, henchman, Bond girl (named rather straightforwardly Pussy Galore), and gadgets (with the introduction of the superb Desmond Llewelyn as everyone's favorite grumpy tinkerer), Goldfinger assembled the Bond formula fully for the first time and crafted a film to define a series, a genre, and an era of filmmaking. Top notch.

Only complaint it the instrumental music during the flight scene when Ms. Galore's students are attempting to poison the soldiers surrounding Fort Knox.
September 18, 2017
This is often regarded as the best Bond film and I certainly agree. This is Connery at his finest.
September 15, 2017
The best of the franchise to date, Goldfinger is a perfect combination of the action, gadgets, catchphrases, and humor that made James Bond a timeless classic. It features another fantastic performance from Connery, as well as one of the best villains of the franchise.
