Bond (Connery) is assigned to a mission in Jamaica. An agent who was investigating strange activity with nuclear weapons at Cape Canveral has disappeared and he is to take up where he left off. His contact, CIA operative Felix Leiter (Jack Lord-pre Hawaii 5-0) is there to help. While dodging assisins and lovely femme fatales Bond's investigation takes him to Crab Key Island to find evil scientist Dr. No (Joseph Wiseman), the primary suspect. There he is meets Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress), a deadly beauty who emerges from the sea in a tiny bikini with a knife holster slung about her hips, in one of the most memorable Bond-girl moments of all time. It's up to Bond to find a way to save the world...before it's too late.
Terance Young, who directed three out of the first four films in the series, takes a simple approach. The gadgetry is at a minimum and there is more of an intricate web of mystery in this adventure than in most other Bond movies. Don't worry though, it's still all there, but the film sticks closer to the Flemming novels. M (Bernard Lee) and Moneypenny (Lois Maxwell) true staples of the Bond mythos are here as well. With all due respect to Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, and Brosnan, Connery still owns the role hands down. And he proves it right out of the gate...
The extras on the special edition DVD are pretty good. They are set up the same way as on most other discs in the series.Read more ›
However, Dr. No owes its success chiefly to two moments -- two of the greatest entrances in screen history. One is Honey Ryder's (Ursula Andress) entrance on the beach on Dr. No's Crab Key. Andress immediately became an object of desire for millions of red blooded males with her tanned sensuous body and skimpy bikini (in the book Dr. No, Ryder was naked). After 42 years and god knows how many sexy women, Andress' Ryder is still the standard. And unlike so many of the later Bond heroines, Andress' Ryder is a tough, intelligent woman who can take care of herself. When Bond promises he won't take the shells she sells to support herself, Andress answers, "I promise you you won't, either." Later, when she tells of killing her rapist with a black widow spider, even Bond recoils in mild shock.Read more ›
There are many reasons why you would like this movie. First, you would immediately fall in love with the character of James Bond with the wonderful acting skills of Sean Connery. Also, besides the Felix Leiter in "For Your Eyes Only", Jack Lord's portrayal of him is I think the best of all. There is a reason why I gave only 4 stars for this movie. It's because maybe back in 1963, the action and suspense would have been really thrilling for people then, but now... after watching movies like "Matrix", "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon", and the newer Bond movies with Pierce Brosnan, the action isn't that appealing. But that is the only reason I would give it 4 stars. But I'm telling you, if you're a fan of James Bond, don't ever miss the very first 007 movie, "Dr. No".
