Sean Connery as James Bond the secret agent? Indubitably. As Malone the Chicago cop? Certainly. As Marko Ramius the submarine captain? Fair enough. As Roald Amundsen the explorer? Hmmm, maybe. But as Mulay Achmed Mohammed el-Raisuli the Magnificent? Erm… It’s a biiiiiig film alright, this story of Berber Arab uprising in North Africa, but you may find yourself asking what it’s all about before too long. However, Candice Bergen, Brian ‘and McCormick’ Keith and John ‘Breckenridge’ Huston are on hand to make it all worth while.
