Cinema-Maniac: Dr. No (1962) Review

James Bond is undoubtedly the world most famous spy, for good reason too. With Sean Connery introducing to the character who wouldn’t want more to see Bond movies.

James Bond’s investigation of a missing colleague in Jamaica leads him to the island of the mysterious Dr. No and a scheme to end the US space program. All without any gadgets, I thought a Bond movie without the gadgets wouldn’t be as entertaining, I was wrong. The story actually gets more intelligent as it progress and adds a sense of realism that some of the more recent outing lack.

Sean Connery performance is just perfect in this, he captures Bond effortlessly which is why no doubt he’s still one of the best Bond. What it lack was the thrills and action that Bond movies generally provide, while the more realistic approach works for the story, the movie is without thrills and exciting action. Still, that not enough to ruin the film for you.

Sean Connery first outing as Bond is no doubt memorable. If you’re a fan of the current Bond, you’ll be disappointment in terms of action, but everything won’t be.
