This movie isn't half as bad as the previous review would have you believe. It doesn't have the best plot or actors, but it is entertaining. There are great location shots of Uluru, Sydney Harbor and many other places. The movie is entertaining and does have lots of fight scenes. You've got to have somewhat of a sense of humour when watching it. Remember that it was a product of the time period. The fashion, the acting, the premise of the movie, the politics of the time. Take it for what it is. As for George Lazenby, the only thing unfortunate about his part in the movie, is that he isn't in it enough. Not enough presence of the great George Lazenby, the BEST James Bond by far. His acting in 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' is far better than many would have you believe. And it is to his effort, and interpretation of Bond that made that movie the best of the Bond movies. He is quite simply a fine actor and a victim of mass media misinterpretation. Thank you for reading.
