Storyline

Bond, James Bond. Perhaps the greatest fictional cinema icon ever. He first appeared on the big screen in 1962 in Dr. No, and has remained the most powerful action hero ever since. The secret to his success is his adaptability. No matter what tight spot he finds himself, he always appears to be suave, sophisticated and cool. As a spy Bond is constantly reinventing himself, and on the big screen he has done this five times, as Sean Connery, Roger Moore, George Lazenby, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan. The documentary looks at the different characterizations each actor has brought to the role to discover the elements that make up Bond. It also traces the character back to its origin, the Bond novels by Ian Fleming, whose creation was semi-autobiographical. From the gadgets to the girls, The James Bond Story also features interviews with Q (the late Desmond Llewelyn), Maud Adams, Jane Seymour, Terence Young (Director), Cubby Broccoli (Producer), Ian Fleming and more, along with ...

Nothing Special-Nothing New
23 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

Well, the documentary is actually nothing special because there's not much news in it. The story tells everything that was said. I must say I was very disappointed after I had thought it was going to be something really enjoyable and interesting. It proves to have been done only for money and maybe to promote Bond's entrance in the 2000s. The only highlight of the progamme are interviews with Bond actors, although our friends don't say anything new, well maybe except Roger Moore who tells us some funny anecdotes and helps the documentary not be be totally boring. But I know I can always count on Roger.
