Goofs

Just before James Bond enters the room filled with enemies during his training exercise at the beginning of the film, he throws a grenade from the rooftop through the window. The grenade lands on a table with a chessboard used by two foes. When Bond swings through the same window in the next scene it gets clear that it was impossible for him to throw the grenade right on the chessboard because the table is too far away from the window.

Never Ever Have I Seen Such Crap
16 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film followed the same plot as "Thunderball", so it was basically a remake. The opening sequence was ludicrous, as James Bond was revealed to have been training for a commando raid instead of actually accomplishing one. The entire movie, when compared with "Thunderball", seemed very cheesy in every regard. "Thunderball" was possibly the best Bond flick . It seemed to have a big budget, was very well cast, and was well-paced. "Never Say Never Again" was lacking in each of these aspects. Even James Bond's jet pack seemed like a bargain basement model when compared to the one he wore in "Thunderball", filmed nearly twenty years earlier.

This film was a horrible mess from beginning to end. Connery at 52 looked and acted like a man of 65. Kim Bassinger seemed to be on antidepressants; very heavily medicated. Barbara Carrera seemed to have zero sex appeal - just a big-mouthed, crabby slut. The part where the "Flying Saucer" (what a dumb name for a yacht, compared to the "Disco Volante" of "Thunderball) took off from the Caribbean to the Middle East was so dumb. Bond using a wristwatch laser to free himself from handcuffs was so juvenile. Above all, hot young women swooning over sixtyish-looking Connery was ridiculous. Yeah, I could see them being hot for him in 1965 when he was a stud, but he looks like the type of old geezer none of these women would even notice.

The soundtrack sounded like music from a fashion show, rather than the James Bond themes we're used to. I will say that Bernie Casey was good as Felix Leiter. I will forever wonder how a James Bond flick could be such a laughably hideous piece of trash.
