Product Description

Amazon.ca

After years of enduring Roger Moore in the role of James Bond, it was good to have Sean Connery back in this 1983 film for a one-time-only trip down 007's memory lane. Connery's Bond, a bit of a dinosaur in the British secret service at (then) 52, is still in demand during times of crisis. Sadly, the film is not very good. In this rehash of Thunderball, Bond is pitted against a worthy underwater villain (Klaus Maria Brandauer); and while the requisite Bond Girls include beauties Kim Basinger and Barbara Carrera, they can't save the movie. The script has several truly dumb passages, among them a (gasp) video-game duel between 007 and his nemesis that now looks utterly anachronistic. For Connery fans, however, this widescreen print of the Irvin Kershner (The Empire Strikes Back) film is a chance to say a final goodbye to a perfect marriage of actor and character. --Tom Keogh

I kinow this film has not received the acclaim of other Bond films but for the life of me I don't know why not. So what if the story is borrowed from a previous film...Dirty Harry, You Got Mail, etc were all variations on a theme.
No, this was the return of the TRUE James Bond, the one and only Sean Connery. Here he is older yet wiser, not as foolhardy but still daring, and though his libido must have subsided a tad, he is still the ladies man. Kim was great as the bad guy's gal pal. Equally good was the villian himself, not as totally outlandish as some of the previous ones. Several scenes stand out....
The Tango (fantastic and it was reprised with the...) Arab auction. (What a great opportunity for Bond to make a - pardon the pun - dashing entry). Then there was the game for the world and who can forget the over the top performance by Barbara Carrerra as the sexy Fatima Blush. Where DO they come up with these names? Good plot, good characterization and good ending.

Format: VHS Tape
This movie was not just a throwback to the less comic iteration of James Bond, but this movie also brought Sean Connery back into the role that he held for so long. Kim Bassinger and Max von Sydow join the cast as James Bond, with the help of Felix Leiter from the CIA, fight to stop SPECTRE from extorting billions from the world governments by threatening detonation of a nuclear device.
The movie is filled with double meanings. For instance, M believes that James is overweight and too old to keep up as an agent. This parallels how some felt that Connery was past his days as the well known spy. There are other little quotes, as well as a wink, to let you know that this was all intentional. For James Bond, and Sean Connery, fans, this is like an added treat.
I do wish there were more of von Sydow in the movie, but the movie does well focusing on Connery. The movie is also a little dated with the video games, like Centipede, that are shown in the casino.
I would still recommend watching this film.

To me this is my favourite Bond Film, with My favourite Bond, Sean Connery, he has definitely made a great comeback, better than the rubbish 'Diamonds are Forever' where he was overweight and look slightly bored throughout. Some people critizise him for looking old, but you have to remember that Roger Moore at this stage was too, and he finished his last film at 58 years of age.I prefer this Largo to the one in Thunderball, this one is more smug and sarcastic, a bit like Bond in a way. Barbera Carrera is absolutely gorgeous and sexy as Kim Basinger is too. It is a shmae there isn't any Gun Barrel sequence or Bond theme, but the theme song by Lani Hill is catchy and the starting sequence where Bond comes to rescue a beatiful hostage is great. The climatic scene clould have been better but still there are very many memorable scenes, like bond's Fight with Lippe in Shrublands, very well directed, and of course the Motorcycle chase. This film is much better than some of Connery's earlier ones such as Dr No, You Only Live Twice, Diamonds are Forever and even Thunderball itself. Connery can still do it at 52, who knows he may yet return as James Bond. We'll have to wait and see. This is a film you can see over and over again and i hope it will be made official. Both Connery and Moore have done 7 Bond Films. Do not forget this film should be loved by everyone Bond Fan, don't be put off because it is made by another company.

Format: DVD
The Origins of 007`s arch-nemeis Ernst Stavro Blofeld, and his organization SPECTRE (the Special Executive for Conterintelligence Terrorism Revenge and Extortion) were in a committee (that included James Bond creator Ian Fleming, Jack Whittingham and a man named Kevin McClory) working on a srcipt starring James Bond way back in 1958 I believe it was. Anyway, Fleming found the committee to be relatively useless,left, and then wrote the novel Thunderball, which introduced Blofeld and SPECTRE in to the novels. Shortly afterwards, producers Albert R. Broccoli and his pal Harry Saltzman wanted to start a series of Bond films. Kevin McClory felt he had originated Blofeld and SPECTRE and some of Thunderball`s story line and that Fleming had
stolen the ideas from him. And Kevin wasn`t about to let Thunderball go to the screen without him. The legal battles that went one are to complicated, but what came out of this was: Fleming would retain the literary rights to one Enrst Stavro Blofeld and SPECTRE, while McClory would retain the screen rights. Albert and Harry were free to film a filmed version of Thunderball as long as McClory was the producer. In addition, McClory was allowed to produce his own remake of the story, just as long as he didn`t start production until after 1975. The legal battles are also the reason why Blofeld doesn`t appear in any of the films after Diamonds are Forever was released in 1971 (except as an unnamed character in the pre-credits seqeunce of For Your Eyes Only, Broccoli`s good riddance to whole damn mess). Never Say Never Again is McClory`s remake of Thunderball.
And unfortunately, he did`nt have the rights to any of the series
trademarks, though, so unfortunately, you will not hear the immortal James Bond theme or see the famous gunbarrel opening.
