3.0 out of 5 stars Missing Footage? You Can Get it Replaced. January 5, 2001
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As some of the reviews here note, there is a large piece of missing footage on this DVD between chapters 19 & 20 (when the disc changes layers). Is yours missing footage? Here's how to check. Start at chapter 19 and follow Bond as he gate crashes the Casino and sticks the bouncer in the closet. If your DVD jumps from Bond leaving the bouncer in the closet with the "bomb" in his hand (Bond says,"Good boy"), to a scene inside the casino where Bond, Domino, and Largo enter the private game room (Largo saying, "These are my friends..."), then you've got a dud. What you should have seen is Bond going from the bouncer in the closet -- to a shot of Bond through the casino door peep hole -- he enters casino -- sticks gun in ice bucket -- enters video game room -- meets Domino ("My name is Bond, James Bond") -- meets Largo, etc. If yours is defective (and many of them where) the good news is you can return it and get a replacement DVD by calling MGMÕs customer service dept at 1-877-MGM-4YOU (or emailing them at and following their instructions. I did this and I now have a new, complete NSNA DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sean Connery's Last Bond Film Is A Flawed Winner January 12, 2001
Holding the rights to Thunderball, Kevin McClory decided to make a new Bond Film in 1975. Amazingly enough, Sean Connery was interested in playing Bond again if he had script approval. The film originally was going to only loosely based on Thunderball, but after a few years of legal battles with EON it became simply a remake of that earlier film. Still, it is a good Bond film, even though it does have its flaws. The most obvious strength that Never Say Never Again has is Connery, Sean Connery. Even though he looked his age, he looked fit and ready for the usual Bond action. In fact, he looked like he was in better shape than he was for his last Bond film, Diamonds Are Forever, in 1971. The plot of the film very closely follows that of Thunderball, with some updating of the details and technology for 1983. Director Irvin Kershner (The Empire Strikes Back) does a fine job with the movie, and the cast gives some excellent performances (including Klaus Maria Brandauer as Largo, Barbara Carerra as Fatima Blush - her performance and character seems to be the blueprint for Xenia Onatopp from Goldeneye, Kim Basinger as Domino, Bernie Casey as Felix Leiter, and the great Max Von Sydow as Blofeld). The weaknesses of the film? It doesn't quite LOOK as spectacular as the official Bond films - it has a lower budget look to it than the EON films. Another flaw: the characters of "M" and Nigel Small-Fawcett, both of whom seem like they belong in a Bond spoof rather than the real thing. Both of them ruin their respective scenes due to the attempts at comedy by Edward Fox and Rowan Atkinson. The music is often great (some really good Jazz), but at other times seems inappropriate for particular scenes. Read more ›

1.0 out of 5 stars An Entire Scene Is MISSING from this DVD October 18, 2000
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Did anyone out there who bought this DVD or reviewed it take the time to watch it? There is an entire scene missing from it!
After James Bond crashes the formal gala affair and leaves the doorman in the coatroom, the film jumps directly to the video duel between Largo and Bond. The scene in between is missing. That scene is where Bond surprises Domino. She had previously seen him at the health spa where he gave her a rub down, she thinking he was a member of the staff. The scene that is missing is where Bond introduces himself to her and she stumbles over her lines ordering a "Bloody Mary with plenty of Worchester sauce."
For that significant omission I can not recommend this DVD. Also, other than the trailer there are no extras on this DVD. The aesthetic qualities of this film speak for themselves.

3.0 out of 5 stars Say Yes to "Never Again" January 8, 2007
Sean Connery looking 42 rather than his actual 52 returns as Bond in this remake of "Thunderball." The title is a play on Connery's own words that he would never play Bond again. Having already carved out a distinguished acting career after he initially quit Bond in 1971 (ooopppss, he had quit once before that, hence the terrible "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" with the forgetable George Lazenby), Connery couldn't resist coming back to Bond as he always loved the character, but often feuded with the writers and producers who focused, in Connery's view, too much on formula and effects. Because this film was made by those who had the rights to the original story but not the Bond franchise, this film lacks some Bond trademarks such as the famous music and opening bullet through the barrel sequence, but it is nevertheless a fairly good film.

Some will be disappointed to see Connery/Bond age, although at 52 he's in better shape than most his age and, in fact, looked better than the last time he played Bond in 1971's "Diamonds are Forever" where he was rather chunky and out of shape. He's also younger than Moore and Brosnan's last outings as Bond, so I'm not sure what all the fuss was by some critics about his "mature" Bond.

I will admit that except for Connery's temporary return as Bond, Klaus Maria Brandauer's interesting villain, and the beautiful Kim Bassinger, there is little to distinguish this Bond film from the others. The movie is generally pleasing, but nothing great here. It's just good to see Connery back as Bond one last time.

This film is a must see as a last look at Sean Connery as 007. Despite all the drama behind the scenes with producers matched against each other, I truly loved the movie.
