Oh, a paradigm of its time; can there be any more typical a sixties’ film? Whilst its inherent plot flaws… oh bugger off you pretentious twerp; I fink it’s rubbish, and who’s the old bloke playing James Bond, fit birds though; ah, but listen to the music, they just don’t write them like that any more RETURNING TO THE POINT WHO THE HELL THOUGHT OF HAVING A GUARDSMAN RIDE A HORSE INTO A FLYING SAUCER???? Oh, what the Hell, at least it didn’t have an invisible car; the excesses of the more recent films tend to make this look quite sane. One-out-of, two-out-of, three-out-of, four-out-of, five-out-of five.

The film completely changes in tone in the second half and this means it becomes a bit uneven. It becomes more like the Bond we'll become used to in the future and almost feels like a different film. Dr. No is a good villain but a little underused and I found it a bit strange that the main heroine wasn't introduced until half way through the film.
Probably not quite as good as I remember but an entertaining adventure film and a good start to the franchise. 7.5/10.
