There have been so many flamboyant imitations that the original looks like a copy.

Sean Connery plays 007 with his usual finesse.

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.

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.
