Critics reviews

Lots of action; the train battle between Shaw’s character and the real Bond is one of the greatest fist-fight blowouts in the history of the franchise, if not CINEMA ITSELF. Super awesome, even if few people can actually name the guy who sang the theme song without the help of Wikipedia (it’s Matt Monro, and in fairness to him, he was cheated; an instrumental version of the tune plays over the opening credits).

From Russia With Love has two of the sexiest images I’ve ever seen: the opening credits with the names projected on belly dancers’ writhing, whirling bodies, and the scene where a bare-chested, towel-clad Bond enters his bedroom and finds Tatiana Romanova in his bed. Images like that aren’t cute. They’re primordial.
