From Russia with Love.
The second Connery Bond. A lot to like on this one, but coming after No, it’s a bit slower in pace – that doesn’t mean it’s bad, actually it’s quite good, but I felt that it was slightly less so than No.
The main issue is that villain isn’t as cool as Dr. No. This time around the evil organization known as Spectre are the ones doing the bad stuff and they send out their agents, who really aren’t as cool and No, and don’t seem as threatening.
That being said I did like the main villain that Bond fights in the train at the end, and that whole third act is really enjoyable.
This is a must for all Bond fans, and even though No is slightly better, this is still a great movie.
