A James Bond reunion, 26 April 2004
Author: perfectbond

Force 10 felt like a James Bond reunion. The director is Guy Hamilton (Goldfinger, Diamonds Are Forever, Live and Let Die, The Man With the Golden Gun). Robert Shaw (From Russia With Love) is the star. Barbara Bach (The Spy Who Loved Me) is a love interest. Even Richard Kiel (Jaws in The Spy Who Loved Me) is here as a heavy. Unfortunately this film is not as enjoyable as a typical Bond film not to mention equaling or surpassing the Gregory Peck classic, The Guns of Navarone, to which it is a followup. The film is not an entire waste however. A young Harrison Ford is very convincing action star even here and is almost enough to save this disappointing effort. The only really gripping part of this film was the racial tension between Keil's character and Carl Weather's (Predator) character. Average film, 6/10. This review was based on the widescreen version on the DVD which had a few extra minutes.
