Director: Peter Hunt
“ A very different Bond, indeed. The filmmakers definitely tried some things to shake up the formula a bit and many risks paid off. I dislike how Bond is dubbed for a good solid 30 minutes (Easily the weakest part of the film) and Lazenby is too generic. ” - BumbIeBeetuna

Director: Lee Tamahori
“ It's actually not bad for the first twenty minutes or so. Then, you could tell the filmmakers wanted to go "all out." The story is pretty preposterous, Berry is a terrible Bond girl, and the CGI climax is beyond bad. It is good for a nice laugh, though. ” - BumbIeBeetuna
