This is the best of the Bonds, in part because the action/gizmo genre was so young. In those days — hard to believe — this was smart humour, was sexy and thrilled. Now it is merely of historical interest only.
Worse, there are franchises that one can watch and really get a lesson in the diversity of filmmaking. The Alien series does that for me. Even Freddy. But these — after this one — innovated in no way at all.
