Our Score
James Bond fans may think they know everything about Britain's greatest secret agent, but this trawl through the history of the film franchise (released to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Dr No) still feels like a refreshing affair. Not the usual wallow in girls, gadgets and villains, this instead chronicles the cultural icon through the prism of the lives of creator Ian Fleming and original producers Albert "Cubby" Broccoli and Harry Saltzman. Director Stevan Riley (Fire in Babylon) skilfully illustrates the trio's relationship with a neat use of previously unseen archive, home movies and film clips, backed up by the best soundtrack you could ever wish to have - the franchise's themes and title songs. All the 007s are interviewed (except for Connery, sadly), with the contributions from Lazenby, Moore and Brosnan particularly humorous and insightful. Casual observers will be fascinated, and even Bond obsessives may find something new to chew on (such as the inspiration for the heroine in On Her Majesty's Secret Service and Connery's rapprochement with Broccoli on his death bed) during this revealing account of the genesis of cinema's most enduring series.
