Movie review: Dr. No (1962)
The first James Bond motion picture (excluding a made-for-TV version in the 1950s) was 1962′s “Doctor No.” The franchise is still going strong 50 years later, with this year’s “Skyfall.”
The following is a short review of “Dr. No” written for NewsOK in 2008:
Sean Connery introduced James Bond to the world in “Dr. No.” In the first theatrical Bond film, based on the novel by Ian Fleming, 007 is sent to Jamaica to investigate the death of a British agent and his assistant. The “gun barrel” opening is used here for the first time, and while the opening lacks scantily clad women, it’s similar to the stylized openings that the Bond films made famous. A great start to the longest-running film series in modern cinema.
