The title is (allegedly) based on a conversation between Sean Connery and his wife. After Diamonds Are Forever (1971) he told her he'd *never* play James Bond again, and there he was, playing James Bond again. Her response was for him to "never say never again". See more »
The story Largo tells Domino about the "Tears of Allah" is illogical. "The prophet wept for the barrenness of the desert, and his tears made a well." Islam's Prophet is Muhammad/Mohammed, not Allah. Furthermore, a Muslim fortress would never have been permitted to have the pagan statues we see. See more »

Never say Never Again is just a remake of Thunderball but updated to the 80's. Sean Connery is back in action as James Bond sure Bond is a little older and his skills have slipped a little,Too many women and too many martinis and a poor choice of lifestyle have slowed him up. But when the chips are down and the world needs him James Bond comes thru perfectly every time. Never Say Never Again is not a perfect film there are flaws but you take the good with the bad and you enjoy it. Max Von Sydow is Blofeld he makes the villain menacing you can believe that blofeld is as evil and merciless as they come. But this is Connery's show and he's back as James Bond every thing else is just details.
