Dr. No: Tony's Comments
"Dr. No" is the first James Bond feature film and after all these years is still considered by many to be one of the best. It is a yardstick by which all other Bond films are measured and it is the film that laid down the foundations and set the parameters for the films that followed. Pretty girls, fast cars, gadgets, exotic locations, dangerous henchman, master villains and a captivating theme tune are the key ingredients that made "Dr. No" an exciting Bond adventure. All the other Bond films followed the same successful formula and the James Bond character has gone on to become one of the most popular screen heroes of all-time. James Bond is the 2nd longest running film series, 2nd only to the popular Tarzan series of films. The Tarzan films had a head start by beginning their run in the early part of the 20th century but Bond is quickly catching up and still running hot in the 21st century. Sean Connery's portrayal of the suave super-spy is nothing short of brilliant and his slick introduction of the famous character with the immortal words of "Bond
James Bond" is yet to be equalled. "Dr. No" made Sean Connery a household name and was the launching pad that would later established him as one of Hollywood's A-list stars. Connery went on to play the 007 character 7 times, just as his codename would suggest. In 1983 Sean Connery ended his Bond run with the "Thunderball" remake "Never Say Never Again". Although made in 1962 "Dr. No" does not show any signs of aging, it is still an exciting spy adventure that holds up well to any of today's more high-tech entries.
