I hate to say it but this is just a tired TV show with a budget. Yes, this is Bond and yes, there are most of the elements you have in a Bond movie but the one thing that’s missing is quality. Roger, I think you’re great but you have to admit that this was filmed during a time when Bond movies didn’t know what they should be and played to the mums and dads of the world rather than the newest generation.

Roger is no spring chicken and the script is out of the drawer marked “1960s left-overs.”

DVD extras: Some tired featurrettes, none of which are particularly good, and a film-over commentary by the suave one himself, Roger. He is always fun to listen to but you need to like these kind of things to sit through a film worth of commentary.


Keep DVD?

No. I’m even going off the idea of keeping it in a box set of Bond.

Watch if on TV?
No.

Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Avoid and try to remember when Bond was good.
