BOND: NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN(1983)
Bond! James Bond!
Sean Connery returns as James Bond, and really shoulda
said "never" to this really bad Bond! Unlike Casino Royale
(1967), which was made purposely to be a joke, this is
suppose to be serious. Unfortunately, this has a bad script,
bad co-stars, bad dialogue, terrible music, and the settings
all look like they cost 20 dollars each!!!
This has none of the previous established actors in any
role other than Sean! A different Moneypenny, Felix Leiter,
M, Q and even a different Blofeld, the head of SPECTRE!!
Connery must have either been really needing money,
or owed someone big time, cause this was really disappointing!
It's too bad that he went out on such a bad note!
This is so bad, it doesn't even have a "making of" special!! C-
A review from an editor at Amazon:
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
