Did You Know?


Actor Manning Redwood, who appears as General Miller in this film, Also appeared in the franchise's next Bond Film, A View to a Kill (1985), as Bob Connelly, one of Max Zorin's associates. Redwood shares the distinction of appearing in back-to-back Bond films with different Bond actors playing both a good guy and a bad guy. (Walter Gotell and Joe Don Baker played good guys after playing bad guys.) See more »


When Largo's henchmen are moving the warhead through the tunnel, one of them cries out in German: "Pass' auf die Mauer auf!" This is a mistranslation, because "Mauer" is explicitly a "brick wall" in German and can't be used for tunnel walls hewn from the rock. It should have been the more general word "Wand". See more »


Blofeld: Now, for the future. SPECTRE's most audacious enterprise of any; next to which our previous ventures are inconsequential. Our esteemed Number One is in complete charge of the entire operation, which will henceforth be called: The Tears of Allah.

Even the title caves in on itself
21 May 2003 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

The moot Bond, or even maverick Bond perhaps. It's pretty terrible, a slick but fraying remake of Thunderball. I've never liked the washed out picture, all powerful sunlight and 80s pastel costume design. But there's good stuff too. There's Michel Legrand's score (the opening song has to substitute for the copyright pre-title sequence). There's pre-hyperbole Kim Basinger. There's Barbara Carrera dressed as a nurse

  • the sort of nurse you'd find in a Camden nightclub. Above all there's

the pungently nasty Spectre field operative of Klaus Maria Brandauer. I'm always shocked by the sickness and menace of the sequence in the gym. Largely tripe though 3/10
