BuzzedMovies’s review published on Letterboxd:
This was the first big budget Bond movie but it’s one of the sloppiest in terms of tone and characterization. Is it sci-fi, action, or comedy? Oh and there is a horror sequence thrown in there. Am I supposed to be rooting for Jaws now?
There were a lot of ideas that didn’t quite come together nor were they fully developed. Still, there is some great set design and a few moments of decent cinematography such as the dog chase sequence on Drax’s estate. It’s a mixed bag but overall entertaining. A solid three.
