I think that you brought up an interesting point about how important the supporting characters were in this movie and Dr. No.  Both Kerim Bay and Quarrel were a great help to Bond and weren't female or named Felix Leiter.  I have noticed that many of the better Bond movies have this in common.

I would also like to point out that it is not always the villain that steal the show. Which is strange because you would think that this would not be the case. Oddjob is Goldfingers henchman, but he steals the show. Jaws, Mayday (spelled wrong probably), Three Blind Mice, and even Nash in this movie is not the actual villain. Who was worse in Goldeneye?  Xenia or Janus? Here name was Xenia right?

I think that you spelled everyone's name right.  I also agree that the henchman and not the main villain is often times the better character.  The main villain is the mastermind, while the henchman / henchwoman does all of the cool dirty work.  Take From Russia With Love for example.  We do not even sww the leader of SPECTRE's face, but Red Grant and Rosa Klebb both have some great scenes. 


Its funny I was reading your post and said to myself, "Who the Hell is Red Grant?" Then I remembered Nash was Grant. Strange how I remember the name he had for 5 minutes of the film, but not is main name.


His name is actually Donovan "Red" Grant.  :p

When I first watched the movie I was surprised to even see that actor playing the part. I will always remember him from Jaws though.

Another strange actor is Donald Pleasence (sorry mind dump today) The President in Escape from New York. He always acted so strangely in his movies. I need to see him in one of his earlier works. Just strange roles that that guy took.

Me too.  Robert Shaw was actually my favorite actor in Jaws.

Donald Pleasance has always been quirky actor that took oddball roles.  The movies he's in aren't always good, but he normally is.  Kind of like Christopher Walken.  I always think of him as Dr. Loomis in the Halloween series.

Great review of my favorite Bond film Amp! I agree with the score of course but you forgot to mention that Tatiana is one of the most stunningly beautiful Bond girl in the series.



Signature goes here!

I did mention that her decoder machine was beautiful.

I also wanted to add for those who only have seen recent Bond films or only the Austin Powers movie that Rosa Klebb is the inspiration for Frau Farbissina.

Just re-watched the fight scene on the train you mentioned in your review, definitely an amazing fight! Way better than the fights in most modern movies. 

Nice to just see a realistic looking fight with no need for special effects or special camera work to make it good.

Move aside Tatiana, we have an even hotter Bond girl.

Brendude, I should report you to Monty for posting an improper image in my thread.
