The Bond films were bad enough even with the partially ironic performances of Connery. Here, featuring the stunning nonentity Lazenby, there are no redeeming features. The 'plot' (a series of glossy set pieces) is the one about 007 tracking down a loony Swiss villain (Savalas) who's (guess what?) threatening the world with some scientific thingamyjig.

What do you get if you mix George Lazenby, a bottle of Just For Men, some psychedelic lights and a set of promiscuous women? A Bond film that could quite legitimately be slotted into an adult film category under soft porn. Follow Bond as he assumes the alias of Baroness Hilary Bray jetting off to snowy Switzerland to uncover the truth behind the elusive Blofeld's allergy clinic cum bioweaponry lab tucked away in the Alps. Now this film may explain why Lazenby never made a second (either because it's amazing or terrible, you decide, but I give it four stars) but if you're looking for a bit of action (in more ways than one) and some unintentional humour, coupled with some amazing late 60s fashion then give this flick a whirl.

Why review something you are simply not interested in? If you do not like cars you could say you see no point in a Lambourghini, and just to get from A-B is sufficient. Your ''reviewer'' has missed the plot..literally. The worst review I ever read. Apart from possibly the finest score to accompany any film, along with the most perfect Diana Rigg enough to elevate any film from the ordinary, the list of good things goes on...A superbly atmospheric thriller. Keep this twit away from quality.

Completely agree with Jamie here. OHMSS is arguably the best Bond film of all time. Lazenby is actually superb in the role, Diana Rigg is an exceptional Bond girl and the plot, set-pieces, music and supporting cast exemplory.

Thats the worst review for any movie I have ever read and the author should not be allowed to review any movie again. Ever. No redeeming features? You mean aside from the epic and magnificent John Barry score, perhaps his all time best? Aside from the beautiful, sweeping cinematography? The hard hitting action that 40 years later is still influencing film (see Inception for proof)? As a Bond film, OHMSS is considered one of the best these days. It is a Bond epic on a massive scale. On its own it is simply one of the best movies of the 60's and best action movies of all time.
