      Never Say Never Again Reviews

      Prev Next

      Where Never Say Never Again doesn't come close to what it could have been with the talent and ideas present, it also is far from terrible.

      Full Review | Original Score: C+ | Aug 28, 2022

      Superb entertainment.

      Full Review | Aug 1, 2022

      Never Say Never Again does have some points of interest, and is certainly no worse that some of the later Moore efforts

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Apr 30, 2022

      This is basically Thunderball under a new moniker. It bests its predecessor in most regards.

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

      The film stands up well on its own, and there's the added value of Connery, gifted with one last go at the role that catapulted him to superstardom.

      It may be Bond, but without the use of the gun barrel graphics, the booming theme music, and the opening title silhouettes of nude figures, it just doesn't feel the same.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/10 | Sep 6, 2020

      Overall I liked Never Say Never Again but it fell far short of the movie it could have been. The makers should have been more adventurous instead of simply trying to beat Broccoli at his own game.

      Everything is more implausible and entertaining, even though the structure is the same. [Full Review in Spanish]

      Superior to 'Octopussy', it shows that Connery is, for the moment, the actor who best treated the character, the only one who even took it seriously, possessed the necessary humor to make us laugh at him. [Full Review in Spanish]

      Full Review | Sep 4, 2019

      Essentially, it's a remake of the less successful Thunderball, also with Connery. but Never Say Never Again, in the original Bond spirit, concentrates on the people rather than the gadgets -- at least for the first half.

      If you haven't seen 'Thunderball,' this is a lot more enjoyable, but matched up against one of the more exciting 007 films, 'Never Say Never' fails to do it better.

      Full Review | Original Score: 6/10 | Oct 30, 2015

      Never Say Never Again is the best acted Bond picture ever made, because it clearly surpasses any predecessors in the area of inventive and clever character delineation.

      Full Review | Sep 9, 2015

      It's not a rap against Roger Moore to say that this film seems to bring James Bond back to life. Sean Connery did, after all, define the character.

      Full Review | Sep 9, 2015

      Sean Connery is still up to par as James Bond in the latest adventure of Agent 007.

      Full Review | Sep 9, 2015

      The plot, which owes much to Thunderball, lurches badly at times, but the wild action set pieces, decked out in gals, gadgets and glib lines, are there to be cherished.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Sep 9, 2015

      A fitting farewell to 007's most enduring embodiment: as much a playful send-up as a loving final embrace.

      Full Review | Original Score: B | Oct 7, 2013

      Can we just consider 1983 a lost year for James Bond? First, "Octopussy," then Sean Connery's return in a depressing dilution of the 007 brand - one that ends with a fourth wall-breaking wink indicative less of arch fun, more of bored indifference.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | Nov 11, 2012

      I know Bond fans were furious about this movie cause it wasn't an Eon production, and I think they're wrong. They should be furious at it because it's a horrendous film.

      Full Review | Original Score: 1/4 | Oct 29, 2012

      The slick production values impress and Barbara Carrera and Klaus Maria Brandauer are good value villains, but Irvin Kershner appears to have nodded off in the director's chair.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | Oct 23, 2012

      In Never Say Never Again, the formula is broadened to accommodate an older, seasoned man of much greater stature, and Mr. Connery expertly fills the bill.
