In the sixth 007 adventure, Bond again confronts the infamous Blofeld, who is planning a germ-warfare assault on the entire world. Australian Lazenby took a crack at playing the super spy, with mixed results. Many feel this is the best-written of the Bond films and might have been the most famous, had Sean Connery continued with the series. Includes the song "We Have All the Time In the World," sung by Louis Armstrong.

George Lazenby is LAMENTABLY bad as Bond... he appears to have had a charisma by pass and has the least appeal and presence of any Bond ... and the least of all the characters in the movie, including Blofeld's cat! The poor guy was obviously SO BAD that they cut away in the editing when he delivers the worst and lamest asides I have ever heard! The editing TRIES hard to make a plot you can follow when the characters fail and the actors struggle on bravely ... but the movie only flickers to life when Dianna Rigg is on screen..and then she gets killed. WOEFUL!

WARNING: REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS – WE RECOMMEND TO WATCH MOVIE FIRST! VERDICT: #7 in my personal rating and probably the most controvercial. Scottish man Connery blew up his chance to wear a kilt and become the only true Bond forever. With him it might’ve been rated much higher because one-day tragic marriage gives this movie a unique romantic flavor. It’s a good honest effort by Mr. Lazenby, but still not up to the standards. The story develops quite well until Bond gets into “Piz Gloria” and for a while nothing really happens (except XXX-action). Fortunately, towards the end the heat really picks up again. COLL STUFF: - Bond in love: you’ll never gonna see it again in the whole series! - Hotel suite with a bed on an open terrace: nice luxury - Good chase is never enough: cars, skis and bobsleds - Blofield’s high-mountain mansion with a cave: great design (real place) - All girls are hot - Mountain helicopter attack: spectacular - X-mas season 1st time in a series: gives the movie a warm feeling - Exotic views: Swiss Alps, Portugal coastline, bull-fight NOT COOL: - No gadgets: a 100 lbs safe-decoder does not stand up as one - The idea of young girls spreading STD is way too preposterous
