Bond Five

Movie Review: "007: You Only Live Twice" (1967)

This is "007" movie in states of decline, the fifth James Bond production delivers giant set designs again by production designer Ken Adam (1921-2016) as the vulcano lair of finally revealed head of underworld organization "Spectre" Ernst Stavro Blofeld, performed by insuspenseful delayed-actor appearance of Donald Pleasence (1919-1995), who takes on actor Sean Connery as somehow tireseome character of James Bond, missing the ease, splendors and elegance of former performances.

Producers Albert R. Broccoli (1909-1996) and Harry Saltzman (1915-1994) grant the highest budget for a "007" movie of the 1960s to new-onboard director Lewis Gilbert, who makes use of a gadget- and special effects-focused script-adaptation by Roald Dahl (1916-1990), loosely based on author Ian Fleming's novel from 1964, where the most sophisticated character conflicts as the killing of Blofeld's wife Irma Bunt, a secretly hidden high advanced samurai amour against poisonous plants for showdown purposes and the character of James Bond in transition from mourning after a lost love into an action hero once again.

It is no surprise that this fifth installment tends to disappoint, especially the lovers of "From Russia With Love" (1963) or "Goldfinger" (1964); too juvenile has become "007" action including minutes of assembling a compact helicopter before mid-air flight training delivered by the character of "Q" performed by actor Desmond Llewelyn (1914-1999) to an outside Tokyo, Japan location with slow received also newly recruited Academy-Award-Winning - for the participation in David Lean directed "Lawrence of Arabia" (1962) - cinematographer Freddie Young (1902-1998). The worldwide box office of this first-time in a summer month released James Bond movie mirrored the state of decline in years of character values developed by 12% less attendency over "Thunderball".

"You only live twice, Mr. Bond."

YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE is an an adventurous action thriller, the fifth in the James Bond series, in which the secret agent 007 is dispatched to Japan after American and Soviet manned spacecraft disappear mysteriously in orbit. With each nation blaming the other amidst the Cold War, Bond travels secretly to a remote Japanese island to find the perpetrators and comes face to face with Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the head of SPECTRE.

A good race with time on Japanese soil is very fun, unlike an unconvincing conflict of power in the universe. Unfortunately, beside some sequences from Japanese culture and tradition, this movie did not offer anything new. Of course, some beautiful young women, who cannot resist, seems a bit tired British agent, appear in the movie. However, the magic of previous films is gradually disappearing. This is a ruthless and somewhat confusing adventure that glorifies some unconvincing ideals.

The plots are rather confusing, especially when focus is placed on an electronic device. The dialogues are pretty poor regardless of Japanese influence. A tense atmosphere goes beyond the limits of good taste in the second part of the film. However, a final battle has improved my impression to a certain extent.

Sean Connery as James Bond is too nonchalant in this movie. Although his performance is at a high level, when it comes to action sequences, his tiredness is visible in relationships with women.

Akiko Wakabayashi as Aki, an agent with the Japanese SIS who assists Bond and Mie Hama as Kissy Suzuki, an Ama diving girl and Bond's wife, look fresher than their man. Tetsurō Tamba (Tiger Tanaka) is a better version of Felix Leiter as head of Japanese secret service. Donald Pleasence as Ernst Stavro Blofeld is overly grotesque as the head of the terrorist syndicate known as SPECTRE.
