Dr. No was the first ever film in the continuous saga of James Bond. Throughout the years, no movie has ever struck me in such a way as Dr. No. From Honey Ryder, to Quarrel, to Moneypenny - the cast was brilliant! But none were as great as Sean Connery as Commander James Bond, 007. When It really boils down to it, Dr. No is one of the greatest films ever produced.
Note the sentence in red: It shows the first step - A GOOD, STRONG THESIS!
James Bond debuts in Dr. No (1962). Bond's mission takes him to the Caribbean Island of Jamaica to investigate the mysterious death of John Strangways. Upon arrival, Bond is quick to notice the oddness of Professor Dent, the last person ever to see Strangways. To top it all off, mysterious energy waves are coming off an island known to natives as Crab Key, which is interfering with American Space launches.
Bond is aided by several notable characters including the boatman, lovable Quarrel. He is also aided by the sexy shell finder, Honey Ryder, and CIA agent Felix Leiter
Finally, Bond learns about the true mastermind behind it all, the madman Dr. Julius No. Only James Bond, with his combination of wit, charm and skill, can confront the madman and save the human race from a most certain death!
Part two - the brief review!
Much of the the film was enjoyable, and the director (Terence Young) and the producers do a fine job wrapping it all up! There is a lot of comedy behind it, and the casting was excellent! The scenes, especially the Crab Key scenes, were very well put together, and Sean Connery sold me as his true fan. This film also began the series, as well as boosting the publicity of Bond. Many fans consider it today as the most memorable film of the series. Plus we heard that infamous saying: "Bond, James Bond", for the first time. Oh, tender moments...
There is our part three of our review
There is not much to say for a negligence. Dr. No was a pretty solid film! But there are a few things I can think of. Firstly, don't expect much of a fight between Bond and Dr. No. Sure, there may have been a little back and forth, but Bond prevailed (as expected). Plus, did we really get enough out of the beginning? I know it set the stage for the rest of the film, but it seemed to drag on, with little action, expect for the Three Blind Mice killing Strangways. Terence Young could have drawn us a little bit more.
If I was the director, Terence Young, there would not be much to change. The casting, the scenes, the quotes, the script - what more could you want!
Our part four!
All together, I highly recommend this film. If you want to see how it all began, this is the film. And, it is Connery in his prime, so you know it's good!
And finally, Part 6!
