From Russia with Love ★★★★½

Robert Shaw is the best adversary Connery ever had as Bond. The fact that he’s one step ahead of 007 the whole way is so interesting, and the way he doesn’t speak until the last act builds suspense brilliantly. There’s one scene at a train station where Shaw, on the train, shadows Connery as he moves down the platform, that’s just genius. And the fight scene in the train car is more explosive than almost anything the franchise ever came up with after. The best Bond of all time.
