While modern audiences may see it as slow-paced, it's nonetheless incredibly iconic. The superspy's life is, in fact, more glamorous on his spare time than it is on the job, where there's a fair bit of actual spycraft before Q Branch comes in on later films and fills the screen with another way of doing things. And yet, there's the girl in the sexy bikini, Ken Adam's huge, crazy sets (Dr. No's interrogation chamber of genius), and a mad scientist with robot hands. Bond's hyper-reality is clearly being born. Some aspects just have to catch up, that's all.
A real epoch making film. Has the feel that they were doing something fairly new when it came to action films.
Great Bond movie, much better then i expected. Also way better the modern movies. Connery is simply amazing.
