He is definitely my favorite Bond. So natural.
Terrible movie! Very fake acting with no action
A bit of a slow start, but the last 40 minutes more than make up for it with interesting action sequences It's a shame George only got one shot at Bond, i think he could have been one of the best if he did a few more. A worthy entry into the Bond Franchise
I consider George Lazenby as the worst 007 actor.
The story isn't bad the actor who portrayed bond awful.
It's a genuine surprise how well the sixth Bond film has aged on its 50th anniversary screening. George Lazenby, on his only outing as Bond, is pretty decent for a model with little acting experience, looking and acting convincingly enough, even demonstrating an instinctive comedic timing and panache in the delivery of Bond's signature cutting remarks. If Telly Savalas's Blofeld is none too menacing, Diana Rigg provides a touch of class as Bond's love interest. The simple yet graceful plot sees Bond on the hunt for Blofeld whose campy and convoluted plan involves an international bunch of bimbos beauties, the existence of which has more to do with satisfying Bond's libido than anything else. Bookended by a proper love story that is rarely seen in Bond films, and rarer still, has a tender and downbeat significance comes the epilogue of the film, this would've been bold now, let alone back in 1969. Adopting a more visceral and less cartoonish approach, and with an eye for elegant, often narratively relevant, visual compositions; director Peter Hunt's film packs a harder punch and sets the trend for future Bourne and Daniel Craig-era Bond films to follow. Stacking the action sequences mostly in the second half of the film means the audience has time to get accustomed to the new Bond (and the callbacks they use here are smart, humorous and ahead of its times) before the film crescendos with a set of impressively mounted chase and action sequences in the Swiss Alps, although the only thing that dates the film more than its dodgy sexual politics are the rear-projection studio close-ups during these sequences. Topped off with John Williams's now legendary score and Louis Armstrong's love theme, this represents a pinnacle that other Bond films may have equalled but rarely bested.
I was tempted to give this 3 and a half but I cannot understand why this movie is so badly edited together. The first 5 Bond films are not this badly done, infact they are masterpieces compared with the job done here. Right from the get go with the very choppy badly edited gunbarrel something is just off about this movie.
On a positive note George Lazemby really isn't that bad. He's perfectly servicable but I'd still rate Roger Moore above him. The last scene with Traceys deaths is again, badly edited somehow, it feels like some kjnd of tacked on thing. Im not sure if its the acting or something else.
For Bond fans this is still a decent watch. Definitely one to check out every now and again and the ski scenes are the highlight of the film, and here the editing is OK, for a change. It's a weird film to rate but ultimately Id settle for middle of road.
I honestly feel this movie would jave served as the perfect fjnale for Connery and maybe if the producers had sold it as that to Connery instead of being stubborn history would have played differently.
Lazenby is the best Bond of all
Like Casino Royal this version stands out from the rest. It is its own version of Bond that might take some getting used to, but still it is a great move.
“On Her Majesty Secret Service” Dwells on matters of the heart in a Stellar and yet tearjerking impact . With heavy action scenes.
