In 1983-eating, in one year with "Octopussy", on the light was born the band "Never say never" in which once to the role of bond he with Sean Connery, who after "Diamond" stated that never in 007-Oh franchise not will be removed. The conclusion, obviously, was a little slick.

Part of this, as you know, not canonical. All characters in place: M, Moneypenny, q, Felix Leiter, Blofeld and the organization "Spectrum" — however, W all of them played by very different actors. Only one old friend and obviously some — Connery and his bond is still the same dolt, but does not deprived of professionalism. According to the video shows that Sean order have missed mother of the spy nest, so it catches fun with each scene than and happy, indeed, in  the Diamonds he has played  "don't want".

That is not happy it is the action itself. The budget is not canonical part given, to put it mildly, not so, what ordinary, impact on the story, which action times two and a handful. The bond with the beginning of the shoot of training copy machine, fighting some lug nuts and pour your own piss on him on face (aside, hussars, — from the bottle poured, and not there, where would you might think), then chases ten minutes on the bike, the finally, entering in a shoot-out in a cave that has a beveled, and in the end will compete with a villain under water and... everything. On — captions.

The rest of the time he is engaged in espionage and chatter, which can sometimes be even interesting. Then he will press a young lady right information, pretending to be a masseur, then play with the main villain in video games, then some still provoke. And all do not too bad not too boring. would be if not tightened. Still to sit a little less than two with a half hours here difficult, what is really well-staged mass shooting in the final looks already in half an eye. And why are only needed for such a duration? Even the usual canonical part shorter.

Villain is decent, but nothing special. Companion — same story. Have her name, by the way, — Dominoes. If not wrong name of a companion of the "Ball lightning" from the same Connery. For which was to introduce a "Spectrum" and Blofeld — unclear. Only, perhaps, for the sake of references, because no or in-this-time-not-bald old man with Tomcat there any role, in fact, not playing. Humor a couple of times fun, but quite often slip in jokes about the urine other (no)amenity... even though they're probably more or less to place.

Statement no complaints, except the graphics sidab-level. Well, why it was necessary to show up close two rockets when I your budget, still such a long time? And because the common parts with perefectly (misspelling intentional) was better, not mention about what a year screens grab the "Terminator," although this is another story, Yes. That still annoying, so it is music that is plaintive and similar here is forgotten one hour after viewing. The only thing that kind of like — this is the song "Never say never again". Speaking of her this time classic Bond Intro do not steel pity, because even in"Casino Royale" ' 67 if I remember correctly, it is inserted.

And, of course, scene, irony over Connery, here is elegant — the bond come on estate and please return to work agent, that said, "No, never," —  & winks in screen under the music "Never say never again".

And the more I have nothing to say. While canonical Bonds trying to develop this film gives the spirit of the sixties and Connery all two hours nostalgic. There is a feeling that as if the film was created only for the latest circumstances. To view I would recommend only devoted fans of the franchise and/or fans of Sean, the rest you can safely pass.

As we all know, in 1983, ran for two films about the adventures of James bond, and naturally began to compete at the one holding the gun longer. Thanks to a bunch of lawsuits and an aggressive advertising campaign, the victory in the commercial plan won "Octopussy", and here in creative plan turned out much more interesting "Never say Never", though and not without serious shortcomings.

In the Director's chair sat Irving Kershner, "eternally the second" the Director, known to the General public on the production of sequels of "Star wars" and"Robocop", in which the change of Director notice is quite difficult. With Connery it worked previously on the set of the Comedy "a fine madness".

Yes, the trump card of the film — Sean Connery. Absolutely incomprehensible how he agreed to return to his unloved character, unlikely to blame the money, the more so numerous courts with United Artists not has caused no one of the crew enthusiastic. But perhaps, he just simply told the truth about "of nelyubimogo" of this character, the more so at the time to do it has managed to more than good. And after so many years of acting from it does not diminished, and in such advanced years bond still manages not to seem old due to a more proper positioning. He already do not trying to conceal your age how did Roger Moore bond here, quite tired, a bit lyrical, but if it is filed without any tragic and unnecessary longing for the old days.

Would leave a really great movie, if not very vague script, in addition served with an amazing lack of energy and drive. Her God, even the weak "Osminozhka" "Only for your eyes" with a Moore it looked much more dynamic when that "Ball lightning" (based on the book-the source of which was written the script of this film) is one of the best movies in the entire series. Not enough style, removed all at the level of passage of those mainstream years, quite soundly but absolutely no any of the highlights.

But there is a fair share of irony and many great actors, if not pulling on his film, significantly decorating, there you love of my childhood, Kim Basinger, and very convincing villains in the person of Klaus Maria Brandauer and max von Sydow. Oh, and Rowan Atkinson in episode.

The mental bond.

The worst film about the agent 007, worse even impossible to imagine. If you like classic movies James bond, not even try to watch this Kinomoto! In his time the vandals destroyed Rome, Irvin Kershner tried to make something similar with the bond, but fortunately, this "movie" to her nothing has.

Start with that Director has become (or are just not able???) to come up with an original story for your creation, and stupidly took the script of "Operation "Thunderball" made in it amazing in their primitive minor alterations, and released what turned under the sauce of the author's vision of James bond. It turned out disgusting, and what was to be expected.

In movies about the 007 I was always attracted to the tradition that the author of the described the shame of the world film industry has thrown for unnecessary (most likely for their own narrow-mindedness), or perverted and debased to the recognition. You ever seen the gentleman for the wheel of the motorcycle? I also there, a tuxedo and two wheels goes about as well as sweatpants patent leather shoes, but the Director is clearly far from good taste. With any then, crazy desktop computer game — the fruit of a sick imagination of Kershner — turned into the entertainment elite, overshadowing the game in Golf clubs luxury casino?

The Director of such things is clearly not concerned, it work — the product of mass culture for the unassuming viewer, for whom "007" — just a name brand, not more. Clear this "action under a beer," Ian Fleming probably would turn over in grave if found out how perverted it work that served as the basis. Not even believe IT could remove the author of the film "the Empire strikes back", but apparently the creative potential of the classroom after one film is completely depleted.

The only reason I watched this horror to end — Sean Connery, on it is always a pleasure to watch, and no mediocrity in nothing can do anything about it. Although I sincerely sorry the very first bond agreed to play the role differently "Never say never definitely would have failed in a Kershner realized that traditions classics should be treated with care.
