After watching maybe a dozen or so Bond films you start to really notice the style and different kinds of cinematography techniques that they used to make the films stick with you. Since this is the one non-Eon production it really sticks out like a sore thumb when it comes to that kind of style. Sean Connery is ok as Bond but you can't help but feel like he has somehow time traveled to a place where he doesn't quite fit. In retrospect it makes you appreciate how well his original Bond movies worked at that particular time period. Probably my least favorite bond movie, even when considering the Rodger Moore films.
On a side note, the arcade and video game scene was so out of place that it's difficult to put into words. The absolute last place on Earth I'd expect to see 007 is in an arcade or even playing video games with the villain. So ridiculous it's beyond comical.
Not as bad as first feared, but all scenes with Bond and Kim Basinger is like the beginning of a porn movie and did they not have the budget to invest in a single bra for her doing the shooting. I know the beautiful, unintelligent, helpless Bondwomen is part of the universe, but this is excessive.
I think it works after all.
Yikes, that theme song is atrocious.
The only thing interesting about this film is the story about why it was even made in the first place.
