WARNING: REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS – WE RECOMMEND TO WATCH MOVIE FIRST! VERDICT: #15 in my personal rating. After “Goldfinger” director G. Hamilton doesn’t raise up to his own gold standard. Great stunts, good humor and beautiful ladies do not contribute to the story but rather make up for its shortcomings. And petty drug dealers seem to be out of Bond’s league, anyway. At the same time, the movie is so into 70’s that nowadays it looks incredibly exotic. COLL STUFF: - Paul McCartney in the title song - You get to see Bond’s home (first time ever?) - Finally Bond makes it to New York - Crocodile run: one of the best stunts, ever! -All girls are hot -“Self-funeral” in New Orleans: unusual killing -Boat-chase with Guinness record jump -Double-decker bus chase and crash -Hang-gliding with a cigar in a mouth: that’s Bond! -Sheriff Pepper: really funny guy -Gadgets: magnet watch, gas bullets -Restaurant with rotating booths and dropping tables -Henchman with metal pliers-hand -Coffin with snakes -High-tech scarecrow-guns NOT COOL: - Why are all bad guys black? - Criminal Harlem, NY: not very exotic, not very original - Script-wise, victims should’ve been fed to crocks, not sharks - Villain turns into a balloon and pops – give me a break!
