Goldfinger (1964) ****, 27 November 2012
Author: JoeKarlosi from U.S.A.

I know it's not very unique to single out GOLDFINGER as "the one" that really solidified Sean Connery as the #1 actor for the role, and as "the one that set the template for future Bond films to come". It is a very common opinion and I'm afraid I agree completely and can't offer much difference from what many fans are used to hearing. This was the third James Bond movie, and Sean Connery really owned the part by this time. He is the perfect 007, ranging from his suave good looks to his biting witticisms and no- nonsense business when the need arises. In this installment he runs afoul of one Auric Goldfinger (played by Get Frobe), a very tough mastermind whose latest endeavor is a brilliant plan to break into Fort Knox. Bond runs into his tough female assistant named Pussy Galore ("I must be dreaming," 007 bemuses when she introduces herself to him), played by Avengers star Honor Blackman. It's refreshing even this early on in the series to have Bond hooked up with a Bond Girl who is as hard-edged as he can be.

GOLDFINGER also set the standard for super-henchmen. Here we have former Asian wrestler Harold Sakata playing a brutish killer called "Oddjob", who can decapitate his victims by flinging his steel-rimmed hat at their necks. Desmond Llewellyn really comes into his own as "Q", who furnishes Bond with more and more fantastic gadgets as the stories progressed; for this occasion he introduces the Aston Martin DB5, a classic supercar adorned with all sorts of hidden gimmicks and life-prolonging assets. After GOLDFINGER, the feel of the James Bond films would often take on more out of this world comic book elements for some time. The film itself is tightly paced and well directed by Guy Hamilton. The lead song as sung by Shirley Bassey is a good one, too. If anyone out there has never seen a James Bond movie, or wants to try out their first Sean Connery one, here is a strong point at which to begin. **** out of ****
