The underwarter battle at the end is a little confusing (even with the clearly defined 'good guy' and 'bad guy' wetsuits) and goes on a bit long. Also, the opening sequence, in which Bond battles a foe who is posing as his own 'widow' at a fake funeral, and then escapes via jetpack, is...well, stupid. But apart from that, this is one of the greats. The photogenic Bahamas location helps out a lot, but Connery also gives his best performance, aided by a killer script (including one-liners that actually induce laughter rather than eye-rolls) and Terence Young's direction. Largo is a little boring as Bond villains go, but the 'girls' are all fine, and are all reasonably well-defined characters for this era. Fiona Volpe remains my favourite Bond henchwoman. James gets somewhat rapey with Patricia, which detracts from the fun intrigue of the Shrublands sequence. Rik Van Nutter is one of the more memoarble Felixes (Felices?). Tom Jones's theme song is pretty stupid, but J Barry makes it catchy.
