Tagline:
Plot outline: After traveling the world in his quest to kill Blofeld, Bond returns triumphant, only to discover a case waiting for him: a large amount of diamonds has been stolen from the South African mines and two offbeat assassins are killing everyone in the smuggling ring one-by-one. Bond goes undercover as Peter Franks, diamond smuggler. What he discovers shocks him: the head of the smuggling ring is none other than Ernst Stavros Blofeld! Now, Bond must resist the wiles of a beautiful smuggler and survive the machinations of Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd, Blofeld's two best assassins so that he can uncover Blofeld's sinister plot. Summary written by A Shady Government Operative When the British Government suspect the existence of a world-wide diamond smuggling operation, James Bond is called in to investigate. He soon discovers the extent of the problem and travels to America where a millionaire casino owner is suspected to be behind it all. However, when the casino owner turns out to be none other than Ernst Stavro Blofeld, 007 knows exactly what he must do. Especially when some of the world's most powerful weapons are involved - and two of the three stooges! Summary written by Graeme Roy {gsr@cbmamiga.demon.co.uk} The British Government become suspicious when large shipments of uncut diamonds begin disappearing during transit and then fail to reappear on the international market. British agent James Bond is at first reluctant when ordered to investigate believing it to be a simple case of smuggling, but when a lead points to the involvement of 007's arch nemesis Blofeld, Bond becomes desperate to uncover his plans and to avenge the death of his wife Tracy.

Comment: After seeing this movie again today for the fifth or sixth time, I STILL believe it's one of the weakest (if not THE weakest) entries in the James Bond series. I don't mind the comic tone that many others have referred to, as the main cause of the movie's failure; after all, Roger Moore has always been my favorite Bond. But what REALLY hurts this movie is the complete lack of urgency. Bond is travelling from one place to another and has continuous adventures and "close calls", but there is never an overwhelming sense of danger or suspense. Maybe it's Connery's fault: there is no zest in his pretty bored performance this time. But the incoherent screenplay and the unexciting car chases are also to blame. There are some good points: Bond's fistfight with the REAL Peter Franks, in the elevator, is brutally realistic. His fight with two kick-boxing females is pretty hot stuff (and has stuck in my mind since I first saw this film about seven years ago). The two homosexual thugs are fairly enjoyable. And Charles Gray gives an unusually relaxed performance as Blofeld. But what's up with Jill St.John?? As others have said, she appears to be , at first, an independent and even dangerous woman, and ends up being one of the dumbest Bond Girls ever. A bad change of character. (*1/2)
