The Second Best James Bond Movie Ever (by Saving_Christmas)
I would say, apart from The Living Daylights which is the best of the best and can never be replaced , this is still a fantastic film.At the beginning, there is still a superb starting sequence. We know that there will be a tense plot following the stolen nuclear warheads. Also we will expect another tense and nail-biting moment, to see if Bond will successfully get to the end of this mystery and see what will actually be the result.I found a lot of curiosity from the video game scene, not only the fanciness of the gadget but a twisting point with the film's main villain Largo, plus the <more>
Bond girl, Domino. Therefore after we see that Largo tried to destroy Bond and Domino together and they make a dramatic escape, we get the feeling that another duel-to-the-death between Bond and the villain will occur at the end.We can now see that Largo's plot was to destroy the oil reserves of the Middle East, and then we follow a sequence of Bond trying to stop this from happening. The end sequence features a very creative resolution, as we see that Domino had killed Largo by using a harpoon gun. Making this film the only one in which the main Bond girl eliminates the main villain.Overall, what a wonderful hit yet again from the best Scottish actor in history. Also, Kim Basinger in my opinion was the very best Bond girl in the entire Bond series. Although their performance combined with KMB's talent still did not match Timmy Dalton and Maryam d'Abo's brilliance, I still believe that this is one heck of a thriller to watch.
This is actually, all-in-all, one of the better Bond productions. As the original "Thunderball" picture wasn't, perhaps, the best in the 60s' row of Bond movies, this remake is certainly worth viewing.Yes, does appear aged, but he was the best James Bond in my opinion. "Never Say Never Again" has good action, a bit dated plot, but not a dull moment.I don't care much for the music Is there any particular score here at all? , the 90s fashion, and definitely not the cars. There's, however, a grand car and MC chase that's worth remembering. Maybe the <more>
peculiar Ford Mustang speeding scene in "Thunderball" where Bond is picked up by Luciana Paluzzi's "Fiona" was more original. "Some men doesn't want to be taken for a ride." The setting is not the Caribbean Islands but France which is enjoyable enough, in my opinion.The movie is especially to be considered underrated due to its killer cast: Klaus Maria Brandauer, Kim Basinger, Rowan Atkinson, Max von Sydow...A nice finishing touch for Connery's contribution to the Bond series.
Never say never again Sean Connery's best bond outing (by jamesbowen-96647)
Never say never again I viewed last on itv4 and by God it's great stuff for real bond enthusiasts it stars Sean Connery as James Bond 12 years after he called it quits with the series with diamonds are forever in 1971 and it's about an older 007 who is called out of retirement by his superior m played by Edward fox to stop a spectre operative played by Klaus Maria Brandeur and his voluptuous sidekick Fatima blush played by Barbra careera who have stolen two nuclear warheads and held NATO ransom by planting them in various locations and bond must stop them before they cause world war 3 <more>
. Overall this film despite it being classified as an unofficial bond film is really quite fun and much better than most of Roger Moore's turkeys octupussy which came out at the same time Connery is brooding as well charming as bond he doesn't look bad considering he was 52 in 1983 when this was released and handles himself well especially in the action scenes and love scenes better than in Diamonds are forever when he looked flabby and overweight Kim basinger is stunning and tough as the Bond girl of the piece she is not just seen as a sex object . Klaus Maria Brandeur is credible villain with his cynicism and his snake like charm and overall his coolness under fire , Barbra carreaa Though is gorgeous but severely goes OTT as Fatima blush the cartoonish fem fatale and it's just embarrassing to watch . But check this film out its better than most of Roger Ms cartoonish outings ignore the negative reviews there obviously Moore fans check it out its undoubtedly Sean Connery's best bond film in my opinion .
This remake achieves the rare feat of being much better than the original (by GusF)
Sean Connery's seventh and final Bond film, "Never Say Never Again" marked his return to the role 12 years after his final Eon film "Diamonds Are Forever". The film has its genesis in a long legal battle which, long story short, gave Irish writer Kevin McClory the right to produce another film version of "Thunderball" as he had co-written its storyline. Given Connery's return to his most famous role, it's safe to say that I hadn't looked forward to a Bond film this much since "Goldfinger" and I am delighted to say that it certainly did <more>
not disappoint. While it may lack some of the spectacle and flair of the Eon films, I enjoyed it more than many of them.In this film, the decision was made to depict Bond as an ageing secret agent who was considered over the hill by the bureaucrats now running MI6. He may have been 52 but he didn't look much more than 45 and was far more convincing in both the action scenes and romantic ones than Roger Moore, who didn't age nearly as well, was in his later films. In contrast to Moore, he was still able to perform most of his own stunts in 1983. Please don't misunderstand me, I think that Moore is a very, very good Bond who put his own very successful stamp on the role from his first scene in "Live and Let Die" but Connery proved here that, to coin a phrase, nobody does it better.Given that this is a remake of "Thunderball" in which Connery reprises his role, it'd be impossible not to compare this film to that one. "Thunderball" was not only Connery's worst film but the most forgettable Bond film. Having learned from Eon's mistakes, the producers of this film managed to rectify most of them and I have to say that they improved on the original film in almost every aspect. One of the bigger failings of "Thunderball" was the fact that Emilio Largo and Domino Derval were very interesting characters in theory but very boring ones in practice. Neither of them made much impact on me and they rank towards the bottom in my rankings of Bond villains and Bond girls. On this occasion, nothing could be further from the truth. Klaus Maria Brandauer, a far better actor than Adolfo Celi, is excellent as the charismatic and yet somewhat neurotic Maximillian Largo. I initially had my doubts about the wisdom of having Bond play a computer game as it doesn't seem very Bondian but the scene turned out to be one of the most interesting and tense in the film due to the one-upmanship between Bond and Largo. In that sense, it reminded me of the golf scene in "Goldfinger". Like her "Thunderball" counterpart, Domino Petachi is Largo's mistress who has everything that she could possibly ask for but is still unloved and, consequently, rather morose. She longs for true companionship, which is why she is so eager to see her brother Jack and why she becomes Bond's lover later in the film. Largo treats her as if she were one of his prize possessions rather than as a person. In one of her first major roles, future Oscar winner Kim Basinger is wonderful as Domino and is able to portray the character's sadness and her strength far more effectively than Claudine Auger, though in fairness this version of Domino has far more screen time. The "Thunderball" Domino had the potential to be a fascinating character but it was squandered on that occasion. Kim Basinger has great chemistry with Connery and, although she is 23 years his junior, he never seems like a dirty old man in their romantic scenes, which I'm afraid is more than can be said for Moore in his later films. One of the few elements of "Thunderball" that I didn't think this film improved upon was the portrayal of the primary female villain. As I said in my review of the earlier film, I thought that Luciana Paluzzi was absolutely enchanting as Fiona Volpe and she is still my second favourite Bond girl after Pussy Galore. While she doesn't quite reach the heights of her predecessor, Barbara Carrera is never less than superb as Fatima Blush, one of the most psychologically interesting and formidable female adversaries that 007 has ever faced. Her death scene is wonderful as well. The film has a very strong supporting cast. Edward Fox is extremely good as the overly officious bureaucrat M who, in contrast to Bernard Lee's M, clearly despises Bond. The feeling is certainly mutual. Pamela Salem, a very accomplished actress, has only a few brief scenes as Miss Moneypenny but makes a strong impression in the role. She would have been a worthy successor to Lois Maxwell in the Eon series. Alex McCowen is very good as the constantly complaining Algernon with a poor budget and sinus problems. It was definitely the right decision to make him as different as possible from Desmond Llewelyn's Q. Bernie Casey likewise makes a strong impression as Felix Leiter, last seen in "Live and Let Die", and I'm glad that we see quite a bit of him in the film. Max von Sydow brings his considerable acting talent to bear as Blofeld but the character is sadly underused. Rowan Atkinson is as hilarious as ever as the inept but well meaning Nigel Small-Fawcett, a type of character that he would essentially revisit in "Johnny English". Pat Roach, Gavan O'Herlihy, Prunella Gee and Valerie Leon are all very memorable in their small roles.Overall, this is an excellent film which achieves the rare feat of being a remake that is much better than the original. It also provides a worthier swansong for Sean Connery's James Bond than "Diamonds Are Forever". "Octopussy" may have won the Battle of the Bonds financially but this film won it qualitatively.
"Though I know there's danger there, I don't care " (by majikstl)
You don't review James Bond movies, you evaluate them, rate them according to how well they meet expectations. There are certain things one has come to expect, even demand of a Bond film and each individual effort either delivers or it doesn't. So, here are ten elements that make a Bond film a Bond film. And even though NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN is not technically part of the official Bond filmography, the mere presence of Sean Connery returning as 007 makes it something more than merely an honorary member of the series. Anyway, here's how it rates on a scale of 1 to 10: Title: NEVER <more>
SAY NEVER AGAIN: The clever title has no apparent link to the actual storyline, but is instead an in-joke reference to Sean Connery's vow to never play OO7 again after having been lured back once before for DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER. Whatever the case, it is a catchy title. 8 points.Pre-Credit Teaser: Perhaps trying to avoid any obvious parallels to the official EON series of Bond films, there is no Teaser; the opening scenes are just shown behind the credits. And even that is disappointing: yet another "oh-no, Bond has been killed" fakeout. 4 points.Opening Credits: Other than a screen full of tiny 007's, they didn't even bother trying to jazz up the credits with graphics or split screens or interesting camera angles. 1 points.Theme Song: As written by Michel LeGrand and sung by Lani Hall "Never Say Never Again" would make for a perfectly pleasant part of a particularly long elevator ride. As a Bond theme, it's merely okay. 6 points."Bond, James Bond": Appropriately, since this film sees Connery being lured back into service as Bond after a decade's hiatus, the story begins with 007 facing the question as to whether Bond/Connery is still up to the job. Happily, Connery more than proves himself ready for Bondage again. Though he is a bit grayer, sporting a bit more girth and wearing a slightly more obvious toupee, he seems to have no trouble slipping back into action. All in all, it is one of Connery's best, and most relaxed, turns as the character. 9 points.Bond Babes: Even in the best of the Bond films, the female characters aren't given much dimension; they exist largely as necessary props for Bond's use. Future Oscar-winner Kim Basinger is granted a great deal of leeway in creating her character of Domino Petachi and the film benefits from this. She does a nice job -- and she's not bad to look at either. 8 points.Bond Villain: The reports of his death being obviously exaggerated, Blofeld is back -- at least, for the moment -- showing he has more lives than his prized pussycat. One-time Jesus portrayer-turned-stereotypical villain, Max von Sydow isn't given a lot to do in the role, but is a silky presence nonetheless. But he is overshadowed by a wonderful performance by Klaus Maria Brandauer as Maximilian Largo. After a string of banal Bond villains, it is so refreshing for Brandauer to gave a performance that is both subtle, yet colorfully evil. Funny without being campy, ruthless without seeming cartoonish; his Largo ranks right up there with Auric Goldfinger as one of Bond's best villains. 10 points.Bond Baddies: Fatima Blush! What can I say? As played with all the bold style of a particularly flamboyant drag queen, Barbara Carrera breezes through the film, displaying a mix of self-amused evil and more than a tad of pure psychotic insanity. Bond has crossed paths with a variety of femmes fatales, most of whom have been so easily disposed of that they existed more as amusing eye candy than as characters. But few dared to exhibit such a flare for the dramatic or such fierce determination. Even her untimely demise is spectacular, even by Bondian standards. 10 points.Sinister Plot: As a remake of sorts of THUNDERBALL, the film does seem a bit been-there-done-that: nuclear missiles are stolen and major real estate will go kaboom if all the countries of the world don't pay a multi-kazillion dollar ransom. But at least producer Kevin McClory was lucky enough to find himself forced to remake one of the weakest Bond adventures. By comparisons, this effort blows THUNDERBALL out of the water. And despite the absence of many Bondian trademarks, the film succeeds on its own. 9 points.Production values: The film starts out with an uneasy style, like a TV movie trying to be more than it can. But as the story progress, the film gains momentum and a sense of purpose, making it a superior adventure. 8 points. Bonus Points: There are several odd changes that sets this Bond film apart from the official series. Miss Moneypenny is hardly acknowledged; as played by Edward Fox, "M" is a cranky old grouch with no respect for the "Double Os," a foreshadowing of how Judi Dench would later play the part; and "Q" suddenly has a cockney accent and is all buddy-buddy with Bond. And there is a curious sense of nostalgia throughout the film, such as replacing Bond's Astin-Martin with a vintage Packard and a tango dance number that is cleverly inserted into the story. And a big rescue near the end is on horseback, an homage to THE RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, which was itself a tribute to the Bond films. 5 points.Summary: NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN is a mixed bag. In the really important areas, it more than holds it own thanks to hero Connery, villain Brandauer, assassin Carrera and damsel-in-distress Basinger. But the devil is in the details; as seemingly unimportant as the opening credits, theme song and such seem, the film is lacking because of their absence. It all comes off as a faux Bond film; a very good substitute, but a substitute nonetheless.Bond-o-meter Rating: 78 points out of 100.
My, my. People are SO anal retentive. Let's see...This film wasn't produced by United Artists so it couldn't possibly be a REAL James Bond movie. Yeah, sure, and Microsoft is evil unlike IBM, Exxon and Citibank who don't really just want to make money; They REALLY want to be your friends.Everyone in this film seems to having a good time and that's one of the main reasons I enjoyed it so much. Finally, a Bond movie where all the women are GORGEOUS Barbara Carrera, Kim Bassinger, Valerie Leon, Lucy Hornack , the jokes are actually funny, the stunts are well staged and the <more>
plot is as confusing, long drawn out and non-sensical as all the other Bond films.ALL James Bond films are too long as the only segments that the public REALLY wants to see are the girls almost always disappointing in my opinion , the gadgets and the chases.Please don't complain about the acting, script, plot development, music, etc... All of these elements are by the numbers in all Bond movies. The gist is how serious the film takes itself and if the pretentiousness is overwhelming.I have seen all the Bond movies waiting for some of the budget to go into the plot and script and have been consistently disappointed for the last 30 years. If you want to see a GREAT spy film, see True Lies.I apologize for my seemingly tangential comments but they still make more sense than the average Bond film.The bottom line is that Bond aficionados may not enjoy this movie but others will.
Much better than most Roger Moore Bond films (by Rooster99)
Very solid Bond outing, it is unfortunate that some Bond purists revile this entertaining film merely because of the legal hurdles it was forced to jump through in order to get made. Essentially, it is a remake of Thunderball, as the result of the lawsuits stipulated that was the only rights Kevin McClory had to the character. He did change the story significantly enough that you can discern the similarities, but in no way is it like watching Thunderball again.This Bond is very entertaining. The Bond girls are excellent, the action is non-stop, and best of all, the puns are few, witty, and <more>
add to the overall experience as opposed to horribly mangling it as in most of the later Moore films. Whereas the Danjaq production company had Roger Moore portray Bond in a much more Ernest-like manner in the horridly flawed Moonraker, View to a Kill, and other post Live and Let Die films, Never Say Never Again sticks to a much more rugged portrayal of the secret agent. He is tough, ruthless, and unstoppable.Starting with Spy Who Loved Me, and ending terribly with View to a Kill, Moore's Bond got increasingly effeminate, 3 Stoogish, and ridiculous with each movie. Although Spy remains a pretty solid effort, you can start to see how the producers had decided to stray more into the Home Alone type violence with cars ending up in trees, hit men biting through cable car cables, and action scenes more commonly found in Ernest movies than in Bonds. Puns started to overshadow the action, groaners revealing not the slightest shred of wit culminating in the wince-inducing Die Another Day . Never Say Never Again fortunately returns to Bond's roots, providing great action sequences without the Bond-as-a-Dandy approach. The result is vastly more entertaining than the shockingly bad Moonraker, or any other 80's Bond picture.
