As Sean Connery was 52, it was decided to make James Bond a retired secret agent in this film. However, he was three years younger than Roger Moore when he played the still-serving Bond in Octopussy (1983) the same year. See more »
When the guard comes into the prison after Bond cuts himself loose, he does not appear to have a magazine in his AK-47 rifle - however, this is because this particular rifle was loaded with a 10-round box magazine which, along with removing the pistol grip, was intended to make it look like an SKS rifle.

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.
