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

The dvd was exactly how it was described. It was brand new. And the seller had sent it on time. I was pleased with it. It was an exciting movie, full of action. And Sean Connery was as good as ever. Thanks!

A full-fledged Bond movie in its own right. Ever-charming Connery with gorgeous Kim Basinger and great actor Klaus Maria Brandauer, this Bond rocks as a sort of Thunderball remake. An indispensable addition to the recently issued "Bond 50" box set that somehow did not include it. No complete Bond collection without it!

Bought the complete James Bond series including Skyfall and the old Casino royal. With Never say never again, all in Blu-ray for perfect restoration, I am completely satisfied, it was good to see Sean Connery again in this remake of thunderball, also with Domino played by Kim Basinger.
But please watch out for the sellers who are asking to much for Never say never again, I paid 24 dollars for it.

A must for the Bond Fan... Sean Connery is back as the superspy 007... a revisiting of the the Thunderball script with a few updated twists, it still delivers a fun, action packed adventure with the original Bond portrayer.
Not the greatest of the Bond films but definitely a needed addition to round out the library...

NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN [1983] [Blu-ray] [UK Release] Sean Connery is James Bond!

Sean Connery is back for his final performance as agent James Bond in this high-velocity action thriller. Agent 007 is hurled into a pulse-pounding race to save the world from Armageddon when two atomic warheads are hijacked by the evil SPECTRE organisation.

FILM FACT: Due to Great Britain's strict policy with regards to animal violence, one scene showing a horse falling into the ocean was cut, brought on by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals [RSPCA], which is the largest animal rights group worldwide. This is only available to be viewed on an uncut German PAL DVD. The music for ‘Never Say Never Again’ was written by Michel Legrand, who composed a score similar to his work as a jazz pianist. Phyllis Hyman also recorded a potential theme song, written by Stephen Forsyth and Jim Ryan, but the song, an unsolicited submission, was passed over given Michel Legrand's contractual obligations with the music. Neither the famous opening credits nor the James Bond Theme or the 007 Logo were allowed to be used.

Cast: Sean Connery, Klaus Maria Brandauer, Max von Sydow, Barbara Carrera, Kim Basinger, Bernie Casey, Alec McCowen, Edward Fox, Pamela Salem, Rowan Atkinson, Valerie Leon, Milos Kirek, Pat Roach, Anthony Sharp, Prunella Gee, Gavan O'Herlihy, Ronald Pickup, Robert Rietty, Guido Adorni, Christopher Reich, Billy J.

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.

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.

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.
