This 1971 entry is the 7th in the series, and the film that returned Sean Connery to the role he made famous for the 6th and final time in the Eon films. He would play Bond one more time in 1983's indepedent production of "Never Say Never Again." The 40 year old Connery is both tough and smooth in this camp but very dangerous Bond adventure. The story loosely follows Ian Fleming's diamond smuggling narrative, from the original 1956 novel, from the diamond mines of South Africa to Las Vegas, the film's feature location. Charles Gray stars as Bond's long-time nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Bruce Glover and Putter Smith entertain as camp but deadly assassins, Wint and Kidd, while Jill St. John sizzles as sassy Vegas gangster-moll and lead Bond-girl Tiffany Case. Lana Wood is equally memorable as the bubbly Vegas casino hustler Plenty O'Toole.
This is one of the most entertaining, colourful and smart films in the Bond canon. The production features an all-star list of Bond veterans for Connery's return to the role he made famous, including Goldfinger alumni, director Guy Hamilton, and lead vocalist Shirley Bassey, who belts out another iconic Bond title-song. Also along for the thrills and danger are Bond stalwarts, composer John Barry and Production designer Ken Adams. Their estimable contributions cannot be understated. Barry's score brilliantly ratchets up the danger and suspense, while Adam's expansive and futuristic set design elevates the film's look accordingly.
Another very nice blu-ray transfer with the usual package of extras. The film is one of the most outrageous and colourful of the Bond movies. Enjoy!

Diamonds is one of the strangest Bond movies. It is actually, in my opinion, more a comedy than a spy drama. It is funny but also strangely cheese by moments, but I think, that even for a Bond movie, there is just too much going. The Blu-Ray transfer is very good, the images a gorgeous with lots of detail and “plenty” of eye candy.

next bluray disc after purchase of a player. Again, minimal to nonexistent content inside the case.
The least you (producer of the disc) could do is add in the year the film first came out.
played well otherwise.
added an extra star for sean connery and jill st. john

Beautifully clear and crisp picture. Sean Connery was the best Bond until Daniel Craig came along. Well-worth the money. Buy it!

One of my favorite Bond movies. Connery earn his unusual ( for the time ) fee for this role as he hunts for the killer of his wife only to find him behind a mission after he believed he finished the job.
Jill St. John is very hot and does a fine job and the supporting cast follows through well. The cut in the effects budget shows with the parking lot chase but I always felt that Connery as Bond was the attraction rather than the gimicks.
A winner

DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER marks Sean Connery's return to the role of Bond after the hiatus of ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE. It was also his last Bond film to date (except for the swan song NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN in 1983).
The opening precredits sequence involves Bond's hunt for Blofeld, who killed Bond's wife Tracy in OHMSS. The story then develops into a melange of diamond smuggling, Las Vegas casinos, an eccentric billionaire (pork sausage king Jimmy Dean playing Willard Whyte, a sort of cornpone version of Howard Hughes), cheesy funeral parlors, moon buggies and laser beams, cloning, and a girl named Tiffany Case.
In terms of story, this film is one of the weakest of the Bond films,jumping frenetically from one scene to another in an attempt to cram in everything it possibly can. The film editing is awful. There's just no other word for it.
The movie is redeemed by the characters and the nonstop action sequences, all of which are wildly entertaining. Connery is suave and irrepressible in a white tuxedo. Jill St. John, who plays the aforementioned Miss Case, is brassy and sassy, sexy and fun. The two of them seem to be sharing a private joke all the way through the film.
We are also introduced to Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd, a pair of openly gay assassins who kill with a creative streak and have a penchant for really bad puns. The appearance of Wint and Kidd and their relationship marks a kind of minor milestone in the Bond canon, showing that the series was moving unselfconsciously into the 1970s.
Minor but important roles are filled out by Bambi and Thumper, a pair of gymnasts specializing in assault, battery, and tumbling routines, and Plenty O'Toole ("Named after your father, no doubt") a casino girl reminiscent of a low-rent Sylvia Trench from the earliest Bond films.
