Alternate Versions

For the UK cinema version the BBFC made cuts to reduce the number of gunshots fired by Bond at Dent from 6 to 2, to remove blows and a knee kick during Bond's fight with the chauffeur, and to replace Dr No's line "I'm sure she will amuse the guards" with "The guards will amuse her." Most releases feature the edited print, except for a considered-legendary 1982 VHS/Betamax release, which was confirmed in 2019 to contain the uncut version of the film See more »

Sensational but.
13 August 2019 | by johnnytherealguySee all my reviews

A very good film but not the best James Bond.

This film is very good of course, but he might don't satisfy yourself as a James bond film. Not a lot of explosion and impressive scenes. Nothing in terms of " gadget". And fight scenes are very exagerate.

Despite this, Dr no is a film that when you are into it, you can't get your eyes away of the screen because Sean Connery Bond's interpretation is Sensational, because the film has a 60's style lot of charm and because of Bond's girls of course.

And all this stuff makes the film a Must Watch.
