After the last guard passes them while they are hiding in the river and Bond emerges from the hiding spot to kill the guard from behind with Honey Ryder's knife, she asks him why he killed the guard, and Bond says because he had to. However, the guard had already passed their hiding spot in the riverbank and was unaware of their presence and they could have just as easily stayed hidden under water as they did when the first group of guards passed with a dog.

A resourceful government agent (Sean Connery) seeks answers in a case involving a missing colleague and the disruption of the American space program.
After fifty years of James Bond movies, I finally watched my first one now (in August 2013). There was plenty of what I expected -- vodka martinis, nice cars, women with unusual names. But there was also some I did not -- far more detective work than your average spy, and fewer explosions and action scenes than I would have thought.
A great movie? Maybe not quite. But definitely a pretty good one. I was most amused by Sean Connery's attempts to suppress his accent, and how it was not always successful.
