This movie had a number of strikes against it from the outset. The 1983 release date is twenty years after Sean Connery's appearance in 'Goldfinger' (the 'gold standard' of Bond films IMO). The lack of the traditional Bond opening sequence, as well as of MI6 staples Bernard Lee, Desmond Lleweland and even perennial 'government employee' Lois Maxwell screams 'pirate movie'. The plot is a spot-on ripoff of 'Thunderball', although updated for the new (in 1983) geopolitical scene. However this movie is something of an undiscovered gem. The primary reason is Connery, who at age 52 re-establishes himself as THE definitive James Bond. One hopes that the relative lack of the excessive cartoonish gadgetry in the post-Goldfinger films was a result of rumored creative control allowed to Connery. And other actors provide good support. Barbara Carrera is suitably unstable and evil as a female assassin, Kim Basinger is both provacative and vulnerable, and Klaus Maria Brandauer is an appropriately driven, manic and greedy primary villian. The updated setting of the Middle East as a staging area and Brandauer's portrayal of a predatory capitalist who has to win and prosper no matter who he allies himself with or what the cost is to society are also surprisingly up to date with current events. But it all boils down to Connery's final appearance as Bond as a reason to own this DVD.

Not a "sanctioned" Bond flick, but nice to see Connery in action again!
