Never Say Never Again

‘Unofficial’ but still rather dull legal-loophole rehash of the not-that-good anyway Thunderball. There’s a bit of fun to be had with unfamiliar names in familiar roles, viz. Max von ‘Tim Tyler’ Sydow as Blofeld, Edward ‘VII’ Fox as M, Alec ‘Mr. Palfrey of Westminster’ McCowen as Q etc., but otherwise you’ll have to be content with Rowan ‘Bu-harclaycard??!’ Atkinson, Pat ‘no-one’s grabbed Bomber’s arse!’ Roach, Prunella ‘Kinvig’ Gee, Ronald ‘Radio 4’ Pickup and someone getting piss thrown in their face. Charming.

    This is so bad that it ends with James Bond doing a cheeky wink to the camera, like he was Robin Askwith or something. And the big mid-film battle between Bond and the baddie is… playing a video game. Hypersports on First Class with Debbie Greenwood was more exciting.
