Never Say Never Again (1983)

Rating: *
Cast: Sean Connery, Kim Basinger

Yuck. Why Sean, why? An unofficial James Bond film, this is a remake of the fantastic "Thunderball" (1965) that's pure torture to watch. Sean Connery is back in the role for the first time in over ten years, but he seems awkward and unsure of himself. Kim Basinger as Domino is just annoying, and in fact, all of the characters are just silly and hollow. Even the effects and action scenes are weak and poorly realized, and the absence of the classic Bond theme music is really disconcerting. Do yourself a favor and watch "Thunderball" instead. You'll be glad you did.
