Exactly the movie you think it is, but not the movie you want it to be.

It's simply great fun, a winsome film and an occasionally over-the-top luxury fantasy that never flags.

It’s fine. It's literally the definition of a fine movie. You’ve seen it before, you know every beat and outcome before the characters even do. Only question is how much escapism you’re looking for.

One of the worst ways to make a cult movie is to set out to make a cult movie.

Watch the 2016 Documentary - Becoming Bond. Just one example of how bond like Lazenbt was in real life - he turned down £1 million to sign a contract for 6 more bond films. There is a scene on OHMSS where he does the same - turn down £1m to marry Draco's daughter... think about it, who else would do that in real life. Lazenby epitomized was Bond was really about - he didn't just act it.

I had been wanting to watch OHMSS for ages. I had seen bits and pieces throughout my childhood but never sat down to watch it all the way through. I always heard this wasn't a great movie but that recently had again somewhat of cult status for Bond fans, specially since it was the only Bond appearance of George Lazenby. I must say I quite enjoyed it. Its such a beautiful film - the cinematography is really a staple of the Bond series - and probably one of the best at it. Although Lazenby is not the best performer, the cast around him, specially Diana Rigg and Telly Savalas, really make this a very fun watch, and I must admit the last scene impacted me - not to Craig's CR standards - and was the most convincing thing he did on screen. You could really feel the pain and sadness. The action scenes, though quite dated - with jump cuts and changes of pace - still feels brutal and intense in some places, and I think that physicality really was the strongest suit of Lazenby's Bond. The slow pace throughout the film really paid off in the last half an hour. The Bond series holds a very special place in my heart, and OHMSS is no exception. The excitement of listening to the Bond theme during a set piece is an unique feeling on all cinema.OHMSS is a treat to watch.

OHMSS is a solid entry in the James Bond series, but I had a number of issues with the film that I found distracting. Such as the roughness of the editing (especially during fight scenes - too many cuts and tight camera shots to try and make the action more exciting), the repetitiveness and overuse / misuse of the leitmotifs (for example the simple musical phrase that plays for over 5 minutes during the safe-breaking operation), and some problems with the fit of Lazenby as 007 (particularly the voice overs - they should have modified the script to have better suited the actor they committed to).The settings were fantastic and the story solid, but there were just a number of rough edges that kept grabbing my attention. Perhaps if 15- 20 minutes more ended up on the cutting room floor then this would rank as one of the best James Bond installments in my mind.

I was 18 when this film was first released and I suppose due to Sean Connery not in the role as 007 I didn't bother watching it. So to see the film for the first time ever a couple of weeks back really struck a poignant sad feeling at all that time elapsing and the two main stars so much older now but thankfully still alive. The other fascinating things about this film is the perceived chemistry between Bond and Tracey in the film and the real animosity that seems to have developed whilst making the movie between Rigg and Lazenby.Anyhow I'll say only this, if I had to chose a film for the most heartfelt love scenes , then OHMS's would be it. The tender scenes between Dianna and George coupled with John Barry and Hal Davids achingly exquisite' We have all The Time' brings a tear to my eye every time. From when he chases Tracey to her car and the beautiful Dianna Rigg turns around with tears streaming down her face which Bond (George) gently wipes away is just so beautiful as 'the theme song starts to play. Also although George is on the very rare occasion tad 'wooden' or more accurately self-conscious the scene in the barn as the blizzard rages outside where Tracey (Dianna ) seems to accept her lot that she cannot get any closer to James because of his occupation and says why are you still thinking about it and James (George) answers so gently that he is not he was '"thinking about us" and then says he loves her, for me is the tenderest love scene in any movie that I've ever seen.Dianna and George's relationship is the thing that makes this probably the best Bond movie of them all and the pair of them acted it out brilliantly. Its a wonderful film that took 47 years for me to finally see but believe me it was well worth the wait.
