"...world domination, the same old dream..."
17 May 2017 | by elvircorhodzicSee all my reviews

DR. NO is an action thriller and the first movie about a popular British secret agent.

A British Intelligence (SIS) Station Chief in Jamaica, is ambushed and killed, and his body is taken by a trio of assassins. After that, they have broke into his house, killed his secretary and stole a very important documents. In response, MI6 agent James Bond is summoned to the office of his superior, M, in London. Bond is briefed to investigate the Station Chief disappearance. Upon his arrival at Kingston Airport Bond has met enemy agents. He has began his investigation with the help of a strong boatman and a charismatic CIA agent. However, scientists, double agents and beautiful women are on his way to the main enemy and to solve a mystery...

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.
