DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER (Theatrical Release Britain 1971)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Stars ìììì

Diamonds Are Forever, while not on par with Goldfinger, still shows well as it follows the usual James Bond (Sean Connery) plotline—action, violence, and sex. Comedy relief comes in the form of matter-of-fact henchmen, Mr. Wint (Bruce Glover) and Mr. Kidd (Putter Smith), who deliver trite lines such as, “If God wanted man to fly, he would had given them wings,” with laughable, poker-faced sobriety.

Arch villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Charles Grey) decides a satellite can be used to blow up military bases. James Bond’s protocol becomes: take out Blofeld, save the world, restore peace.
