Le film a aujourd'hui bien vieilli, mais garde toutefois ce charme indéfinissable des héros mythiques de Verne et de Hergé. A voir absolument et à conserver précieusement dans sa vidéothèque. "Rien que pour vos yeux" ! On ne s'en lassera décidément jamais. www.cinefiches.com
Il primo,l'immortale,la nascita della leggenda:anche se gli 007 non mi hanno mai fatto impazzire quando una saga dura 53 anni vuol dire che qualche merito ce l'ha.Connery è una presenza granitica,la Andress(seppur abbastanza inutile nel film) fà girare la testa ed entra nel Mito ma la mia preferita è la superlativa Miss Moneypenny...la Giamaica poi è una splendida location,perfetta per entrare nella Storia.
6/10. Decent start to the 007 franchise. The set design inside Dr. No's island fortress alone is worth a viewing. The title design's amazing already. Too bad stuff like the miraculously self-imploding grating in Bond's "prison cell" wall ruins one's ability to take this even half-seriously. But I liked Bond's bullshit-free killing of a bad guy to the humourless line, "It's a Smith & Wesson. And you've had your six."
A startlingly confident start to the most successful franchise in movie history. Sean Connery looks like he had been playing 007 for years already. There's a bit more brutality to Bond than we would see for many years on show here and although it's missing the globe-trotting aspects of the later films, it's enjoyable, well directed and even if you don't really like it, there's always Ursula Andress.
Significant due to being the first but it's not fully fleshed out yet as it lacks gadgets, no theme song, choppy titles and small budget. In what it lacks, it makes up for it by being a terrific Bond film, with great dialogue, sets, distinctive villain and provides exposition for the series, as it introduced James Bond, SPECTRE, M, Moneypenny and Felix Leiter.
