My Old Addiction

Dr. No


(out of 5)

The cinema’s longest running franchise got itself off to a fantastic start with this marvelous spy adventure.   made a cinematic landmark of himself as the famous James Bond, agent 007, who works for the British government in helping to stop the world from global terrorism, armed with only his wits and a license to kill. In his first screen adventure, Bond is sent to Jamaica to investigate the disappearance of an earlier-numbered agent. His mission takes him as far as a mysteriously reclusive doctor who may or may not be interfering with U.S. missile launches in an attempt to, what else, take over the world.  Pure entertainment with a grown-up edge, this one features gorgeous locales (Jamaica has just never looked better on film), gorgeous gals ( makes a pop culture-inspiring entrance) and crazy escape situations (I’ll leave you to pick your favourite).  The traditions of the pre-credits teaser, the opening number and the many wild and crazy Bond gadgets would come along later, but once you get into this film I promise you won’t find yourself missing any of them.
