Quite Good. Mixed Feelings.
Quite good. I definitely have mixed feelings about the movie. Some bits i liked and other bits i didn't. Firstly, Lazenby's performance definitely wasn't great but not as bad as I had heard. I actually quite enjoyed watching him, and it didn't really bother me that he was quite false and unrealistic.
One aspect that I really disliked about the film was the Blofeld character. In previous Bond films, (From Russia With Love, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice) Blofeld has been a very secret character. Until You Only live Twice, we didn't even know what he looked like and all we saw of him was his hands as he stroked his white cat. In this film I felt we saw too much of him. They changed the actor, he no longer sports a menacing scar down the side of his face, his accent changes to American and instead of being the villain that sits on his chair and orders dreadful deaths, he's wrestling with Bond on a Bob Sleigh at the end. He just isn't evil enough.
I must admit, I did enjoy the ending. It was very powerful for a Bond film and it was done quite well. Bond's reaction to his wife's death wasn't exactly believable, but sad all the same.
The skiing scenes were very well done and I enjoyed watching them and despite the criticism of the film, I definitely enjoyed it. One point I would like to make would be I personally thought that the film should have been named 'We Have All The Time In The World' as it was said quite a lot and the theme tune is named that.
