Overview

With Goldfinger, the James Bond series took a turn away from relatively straightforward spy thrillers and toward campy gadgetry, extravagant sets, and kitschy jokes.

Overview

With Goldfinger, the James Bond series took a turn away from relatively straightforward spy thrillers and toward campy gadgetry, extravagant sets, and kitschy jokes. Bond Sean Connery has to prevent a notorious gold smuggler, appropriately named Goldfinger Gert Fröbe, from robbing Fort Knox. Goldfinger is surrounded by evil henchmen such as the sexy female pilot Pussy Galore Honor Blackman and Oddjob Harold Sakata, who kills with his steel-rimmed bowler hats. In order to stop Goldfinger, Bond has to survive several perilous situations, including a huge, deadly laser. Goldfinger is one of the most popular films in the James Bond series, and it set the tone not only for the rest of the series but also for most of the action/adventure films of the late '60s and early '70s.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
The third film in the remarkably durable franchise, Goldfinger set the gold standard (naturally) for future James Bond adventures. With the films' signature elements firmly entrenched -- including globe-trotting story, salacious credits sequence, Q's exasperation, and 007's phenomenal abilities with women and antagonists -- Goldfinger began to up the ante. Bond's well-equipped Aston-Martin and Goldfinger's elaborate Fort Knox model presaged future technical extravagance, while Bond's near castration via a giant laser was one more sign of the series' humorous self-awareness. Loquacious villain Auric Goldfinger, lethally hat-throwing Oddjob, and inimitably named Bond girl Pussy Galore were already outrageously tongue-in-cheek baddies long before Mike Myers parodied them in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997). Dispatching enemies, making puns, and seducing females with equal aplomb, tough-yet-debonair Sean Connery gracefully walked the line between straight-up action hero and sly burlesque, offering further evidence as to why he would be the definitive 007. Building on its predecessors' success, Goldfinger swiftly became one of the most popular films of 1964 (and Shirley Bassey's "Goldfinger" theme a hit single), leading the way for flashier Bond spectaculars.

    The Tone for Bond

    The great James Bond finally appears as the urbane, cosmopolitan, womanizing man that we all wish him to be. GOLDFINGER is by far and away the best of the compact collection from Bond: sexy, cool, and edgy.

    THE BEST JAMES BOND EVER!!!!!!

    Sean connery is the king of Bond! The best bond movie ever made. Exellent characters (Oddjob, Goldfinger, Pussy Galore) great gadgets (Aston Martin DB5) and top notch action sequences. This movie defined the Bond genre. An excellent buy!
