In the German version of Dr. No, Sean Connery is voice-dubbed by German actor Klaus Kindler, who also dubbed Roger Moore in "Gold of the seven Saints", who would later play James Bond. Klaus Kindler also was the standard voice for Clint Eastwood in Germany. Kindler also once dubbed Louis Jourdan, Robert Davi and Michael Lonsdale, who all would become villains in later Bond-Movies.

This movie has set certain standards in terms of a character and habits of this main hero. This average fiction is pretty exciting. It balances between actions, mystery, science fiction and sexy situations. The pace is very fast, therefore, obvious flaws are almost not visible, between attempted murders, car chases, poisonous insects or even more toxic beauty in this film.
Opening credits is very impressive. An exotic scenery is in contrast with topics in this film.
Sean Connery as James Bond, A British MI6 agent, codename 007 is a tall, charismatic and handy man. He is a murderer and seducer at the same time. Mr. Connery has offered a convincing performance.
His support are Ursula Andress (Honey Ryder), a local beauty, who deals quite good with a dominant man in the second part of the film. Joseph Wiseman (Dr. No) is the main antagonist. He is a constant threat, but too short phenomenon that could be taken seriously. Jack Lord (Felix Leiter) is an American "counterweight" to the British agent. John Kitzmiller (Quarrel) is a strong and scared boatman. Zena Marshall (Miss Taro) is a toxic beauty and a double agent.
This is quite unreliable, however, is exciting and watchable.
