This mediocre James Bond "extra" lasts just . . .
21 April 2014 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. . . 95.23 seconds. Most people can hold their breath that long. The "Blade Runner" could complete a lap around the Olympic oval AND still have more than enough time to settle an argument with his fiancée in a minute, leaving him more than half a minute to "decompress" and cry. But writer\director John Cork uses his 95 ticks for CASTING ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE to merely pay lip service to the scandalous casting of George Lazenby as Agent 007, James Bond, which most film buffs view as the biggest misfire in movie history. After all, would you elect someone whose main claim to fame was playing the grapes in Fruit of the Loom men's underwear commercials to the White House? That's pretty much what ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE producers Albert R. Broccoli (presumably no relation to said grapes) and Harry Saltzman did in casting the "Big Fries Chocolate" boy to replace Sean Connery. Cheaper, sure, but better . . . ?! "Mikey" may convince you that Life Cereal is tasty, but that does not make him qualified to be the next James Bond, either. Producers pretty much wield absolute power in Hollywood, and--as Lord Acton once said, "Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely."
