You Only Live Twice (Special Ed

Customer Reviews

This is a very good action movie.
DJ Smook
YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE is one of the best James Bond films of the series.
And that's sad to say, because this movie has so much potential.

Ah, it is a tough call, trying to rate a movie as fun as this. Holding such an iconic status as it does, how do you keep your bias in check and look at the movie without those nostalgic rose coloured specs?
As witness for the defence, I would like to call Ken Adams - creator of the 1 million dollar volcano set, this action sequence at the end of the movie set a standard for Bond movies for a very long time... so much so that it is recreated in different guises in `The Spy who loved me', and `Moonraker'. It is certainly the most spectacular set and largest scale action sequence in a Bond movie yet.
Next witness - Sean Connery - yes, he seems a little more weary in the role than he did in Thunderball, but while not at his peak, he is still fit and charming enough to be the definitive James Bond (at least when not wearing insanely unconvincing Japanese prosthetics).
John Barry - who produces another great and imaginative score here, one of the last to sound truly original.
And then I call Little Nellie - the signature gadget for the film, a weapon loaded gyrocopter, is a great success, not just for the aerial action sequence, but also for getting `Q' out of the office and into the field for a change!

But then comes the witnesses for the prosecution... If I call Blofeld to the stand, then you will find what at first appears to be brilliant casting, turns out to be too little too late in the movie. Donald Pleasance as just the right creepiness for the role, but never truly brings the character to life, and demasking Blofeld only seems to tarnish some of the mythos that had been built up around him.
The same holds true if I call Bond's ladies to the stand. Helga Brandt may have a healthy chest, but is a pale pale imitation of the evil Fiona Volpe from Thunderball.

Format: DVD
YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE contained elements of espionage, action, thrills, adventure and science fiction. Looking back it somehow worked loosely when put together yet till this day I can not determine what the cohesive element was. Looking at it closely the film is a real dichotomy of styles. The first hour is excellently filmed and works very well. We get to see James Bond the spy, working with recognition codes, breaking into safes, going under cover and the like. There is an excellently choreographed fight scene between Bond and a sumo wrestler. This is also the first time he developed a good working relationship with a fellow intelligence head, Tiger Tanaka, similar to that of Kerim Bey in FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE. We also see that "M" has absolute confidence in his man. "This is the big one," he tells Bond knowing that 007 is the only one capable of pulling off this assignment. There is also quite a bit of very witty dialog in the first hour of this film. In the first hour the pace is deliberate, but never boring or unentertaining. It ends with Bond flying "Little Nellie," delivered by "Q," into an aerial dogfight with four helicopters. As it moves into the second hour more of the science fiction and fantasy elements start to take center stage. The film starts to look untidy and meanders along till it gets to the excellently filmed battle between Tanaka's ninjas and Blofeld's private army in his Volcano lair. It's not a bad Bond film, but it should have been a lot better. I think the culprit was the editing. Russian and American manned space capsules were being snatched out of orbit by an "intruder missile." Bond had to find the location and the identity of those responsible before World War III breaks out.Read more ›

This is the first of the many bond movies that would take a huge 360 turn in style. Whereas the 4 preceding bond movies had an inclinator towards more plausible plots, this one and future bond movies relied more on extravagant plots. "You Only Live Twice" is not a bad 007 movie, but it is in fact much weaker than the previous ones.

The main issue with you only live twice is the plot. S.P.E.C.T.R.E was introduced first as a menacing threat to the world, and the organization seemed believable and plausible. But as we get into the following movies it begins to show a more fantasy level of the organization. In From Russia With Love, Blofeld had the presence of a threat, and he seemed like a villain with class, and measured every precaution..And he had hair. in thunderball too he was still presented in the exact same manner...with hair; then out of nowhere here in this one he is short, stocky, annoying, makes stupid mistakes, his voice is different..And he is completely bald...wtf??!!

Also Sean Connery plays the part with very little enthusiasm, he looks very aged for a 37 year old; also he gained some weight in this one, and his charisma is somewhat gone. It all seems as if Connery said "I'm tired with bond lets get over with it and give me my check" and the effects are much weaker too, compared to Thunderball and the others it looks as if they placed little effort.

The plot here is very fantasy like, Bond fakes his death to fool S.P.E.C.T.R.E and to keep enemies away from him. He is sent by M to investigate why an American spacecraft was hijacked from orbit by a rogue craft. Bond has to investigate quickly before countries start blaming each other and things escalate to world war III.
