Never Say Never Again

( 3 )

Overview

The title of the 1983 James Bond adventure Never Say Never Again is a self-mocking reference to star Sean Connery's insistence back in 1971 that he would never play Bond again. Reportedly, the huge salary offered Connery was but one consideration that brought him back to the 007 fold; the other was the producers' assurance that Connery would have full control over all aspects of production, a promise that was not kept often enough to the star's liking. Essentially, this film is a remake of the 1965 Bond flick ...

Overview

The title of the 1983 James Bond adventure Never Say Never Again is a self-mocking reference to star Sean Connery's insistence back in 1971 that he would never play Bond again. Reportedly, the huge salary offered Connery was but one consideration that brought him back to the 007 fold; the other was the producers' assurance that Connery would have full control over all aspects of production, a promise that was not kept often enough to the star's liking. Essentially, this film is a remake of the 1965 Bond flick Thunderball the producers were able to get away with this due to a legal tangle involving the original 1961 Ian Fleming novel. Bond emerges from cozy retirement to cross swords with Largo Klaus Maria Brandauer, a megalomaniacal business exec who steals several nuclear missiles, intending to bring the World Powers to their knees. Kim Basinger plays Domino, Largo's mistress, whose loyalty Bond secures when she learns that Largo was responsible for the death of her brother. In addition to Basinger, the film boasts a toothsome villainess by the name of Fatima Blush played by Barbara Carrera. After wrapping Never Say Never Again, Sean Connery swore that this was his absolutely final performance as James Bond; thus far, he's kept his word.

    Deja Vu All Over Again

    This movie had a number of strikes against it from the outset. The 1983 release date is twenty years after Sean Connery's appearance in 'Goldfinger' (the 'gold standard' of Bond films IMO). The lack of the traditional Bond opening sequence, as well as of MI6 staples Bernard Lee, Desmond Lleweland and even perennial 'government employee' Lois Maxwell screams 'pirate movie'. The plot is a spot-on ripoff of 'Thunderball', although updated for the new (in 1983) geopolitical scene.

    However this movie is something of an undiscovered gem. The primary reason is Connery, who at age 52 re-establishes himself as THE definitive James Bond. One hopes that the relative lack of the excessive cartoonish gadgetry in the post-Goldfinger films was a result of rumored creative control allowed to Connery. And other actors provide good support. Barbara Carrera is suitably unstable and evil as a female assassin, Kim Basinger is both provacative and vulnerable, and Klaus Maria Brandauer is an appropriately driven, manic and greedy primary villian.

    The updated setting of the Middle East as a staging area and Brandauer's portrayal of a predatory capitalist who has to win and prosper no matter who he allies himself with or what the cost is to society are also surprisingly up to date with current events.

    But it all boils down to Connery's final appearance as Bond as a reason to own this DVD.

    Completes our "Bond" collection.

    Not a "sanctioned" Bond flick, but nice to see Connery in action again!
