Actually, one of my favourite Bond films! I really like the whole tongue-in-cheek humour of this particular outing. It has some of my favourite Bond villains, Mr. Kidd & Mr. Wint, Bambi & Thumper, and favourite Bond Girls, Lana Wood and Jill St. John. Connery may be a little older here but is still good. From here my interest in the franchise starts to wane...
This one gets my vote for the worst Bond movie. The locations Bond goes to are not exciting in the slightest, the plot is not thrilling or interesting, the only things it has going for it are Connery and some occasional hilarious moments from silly henchmen.
Tras el severo traspiés que significó para la franquicia la -para el gusto de muchos, demasiado sensiblera- actuación de George Lazenbi LOS DIAMANTES SON ETERNOS marcó el muy añorado por los fans y penúltimo regreso de Sean Connery como James Bond. No obstante el prometedor arranque (con un Connery/007 más golpeador y malote que nunca) ésta película es junto con A VIEW TO KILL, la más aburrida de toda la franquicia.
Diamonds are Forever is a gaudy, bloated mess of a Bond film that miraculously finds a way to be entertaining in spite of itself. This one's for the purists who thought the cheesier entries began with Roger Moore.
One of the best Bond films was immediately followed by one of the worst. It's tough to blame Connery for the cash grab, and while he doesn't necessarily call it in he certainly gives his least inspired turn as 007. There is almost no chemistry between Connery and Jill St. John, and she is curiously asked to carry the film through a lot of segments. Feels not at all like a Bond film at times.
