From Russia with Love
The quintessential James Bond. The one with all the recognisable elements:
- Half naked women.
- Gun battles.
- One liners powered by Sean Connery.
- Villain filmed cuddling a white cat.
- The Russian number 3, strict old lady.
This is much improved over the last film, even though the basic plot is the same. It’s such a ripoff that Bond gets chased by an helicopter while impersonating a guy called Grant.
The bad guys plan is foiled by sheer greed from killer they sent, plus the double agent that actually defects after getting a taste of Bond’s manhood.
It ends like all his films, with him banging a girl while a Sinatra-like sings about love on the background.
