A primetime Bond adventure plus the best Bond movie theme of all time.

This noisy and wildly violent picture... is evidently pegged to the notion that nothing succeeds like excess. And because it is shamelessly excessive, it is about a half-hour too long.

It isn't "Thunderball" and it sure isn't "Goldfinger," but it IS old-school Connery Bond, so obviously it's a darn good time.

Blofeld's volcano hideout is one of the most impressive of Ken Adam's sets for the franchise, and it is a pleasure to watch it be completely destroyed.

This one is top-heavy with gadgets but weak on plotting and getting everything to work at the same time.

Connery didn't want to play Bond anymore, and it shows in this forgettable picture.

One of the weaker Bond films, but still entertaining.

While Dahl clearly helped thrust Bond into a whole new world of villainy and technology, maybe his concepts were slightly ahead of themselves, or maybe he just tried too hard.

The plot is the problem. It stretches the limits of credibility, even as that word is applied to Bond movies.

Sean Connery may have been eying retirement, but he and Bond were by now moulded together, his sleek machismo indelibly imprinted on 007 forever.

Although some may think it's a little too light, the action and soundtrack place this one near the top in the entire Bond series.

None of Dahl's gifts for dark humor or sparkling writing is evident. Although the script is good, it is a direct descendent of all of the preceding Bond scripts and breaks no new ground.

...one that some connoisseurs consider a high point in the series and others think is a miss. I favor the latter view.

There are so many questions that the script never answers.
