In this installment. This was an epic production with exotic locales and not-so-subtle messages of women rising. There were strains of humor as Bond actually got turned down a few times and, thusly, remained monogamous. Plus, Q was out of the closet, so to speak.
The cast was up to the task of scenery-chewing as there was a lot of gorgeous scenery in the way. And, I lust over Bond's retirement sailboat.
A tour de force production with a sad ending. Should be seen as these films have drawn our attention for sixty years! I met 007 in the ninth grade. For a boomer, he is a lifelong archetype.
