Never Say Never Again Reviews
Connery is on the charm offensive here and is a welcome return taking him into his 3rd decade playing Bond.
Famously directed by Irvin(Empire Strikes Back) Kershner
Gadgets 3/5 Kept to a minimum and a return to form for Bond after the wayward Moore movies
Girls 5/5 Kim Basinger is drop dead gorgeous and
as Fatima Blush, the sexy assassin is on top form.
Villain 3/5 Blush steals the show
Bond Theme 1/5 another forgettable one written after a remark made by Connery on returning to the role again.
(1983) Never Say Never Again
After a more than a 12 year hiatas that solidified Sean Connery's name on the map, he returns as the James Bond character that is not affiliated with the other Bond films since they were Broccoli produced and owned. Directed by Irwin Kershner of "The Empire Strikes Back", this time thwarting some nuclear warheads intercepted by a SPECTRE agent. The action, although few was adapted to suit Sean Connery's age of 52 which consists of a few chase scenes blah blah blah. The movie still works since it consists of an interesting take of things unlike other Bond movies we're usually accustomed to seeing. In other words, this is a better second attempt of the slightly disappointed "Thunderball".
