So I discovered that I had every James Bond movie on my computer, and that I’ve only reviewed a third of them on here. I guess what I’m saying is prepare for a bunch of Bond over the next couple days (unless I get bored of them and watch something else, but come on, this is James Bond we’re talking about here).
A British secret agent named James Bond has to go to Jamaica to figure out who the mysterious Dr. No is and how he’s involved with the United States space program. Along the way there are explosions, car chases, and ladies in bikinis. Also a guy gets burned to death by a flamethrower coming out of a car disguised as a dragon. It’s pretty goofy.
This is a fun action movie, which is pretty much the way all good Bond movies are. James Bond without the fun is just… horrifying. As everybody agrees, Sean Connery is the best Bond and it’s because he can do the perfect combination of being smug, being kinda scary, and actually looking worried whenever he’s in danger. It’s amazing how big of a different just a facial expression can make to help make an action sequence work.
