Tired, poorly paced Bond from 1967, with Sean Connery displaying his discontent.

Roald Dahl's implausible script is padded out with the usual exotic locations, stunts, and trickery.

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.

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

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