"I wasn't expecting much and got even less! Other commentators have pointed out the the numerous holes in the plot but the script wasn't very good really. Even the one-liners aren't what they were. Notwithstanding some heroic work by the stunt team, most notably in the opening sequence, it was pretty uninvlving and much too long.. It's an interesting comparison that it's running time is about the same as the first half of 'Lawrence of Arabia' yet that film positively speeds by. Judi Dench was probably the best thing in the film yet even her death was totally unmoving. Bond's tears were about as convincing as the villain's wig!"
