You only live twice
Once when you are born
and once When you look death in the face.


The fifth film in the Bond series, 'You Only Live Twice' unveils the sinister visage of Ernst Stavro Blofeld for the very first time!

The film is also memorable for its incredible £400,000 set of Blofeld's Volcano operational base, complete with the rocket laucher, helicopter landing pad, monorail and massive shutter. Q's invention 'Little Nellie' - a one man miniature helicopter - also makes a big impact.

An American space mission is interrupted when one of their capsules is literally swallowed up by what they suspect is a Russian spaceship. The Americans threaten to retaliate, but the British think otherwise. Everything depends on Bond as he goes undercover in Japan and discovers that Blofeld is the creator of these interceptor rockets...

 A BLOATED BOND !

Top 10  Reviewer Top 10 DVD Reviewer

This was going to be Connery's Swan song as Bond, and you can tell, As his heart does not seem in this massive but shallow production.The scale of the film is massive, and the film now has cartoon like villans.
When U.S. and Soviet manned spaceships are hijacked in earth's orbit, Bond must race to prevent nuclear war between the superpowers. This takes Bond to Japan, where he again battles the evil SPECTRE organisation in a Volcano ! This is the first time we see Stavro Blofeld played by Donald Pleasence. It's hard to look at Pleasence's performance these days and not to think Dr.Evil ! The sets in the film are of grand scale, and the Ninja assault on Bloffeld's base is well staged. But this is where the gadgets start to take over. Like Thunderball before, this film has some of the same probles but on a bigger scale. This was a warning of things to come !

 Stunning Film But....

This is where the rot began as excess began to swamp the films. The film is great with a gorgeous title song, fine setting and solid acting even if Connery does seem a little bored in places, however the colossal set and Donald Pleasance's grotesque villain while fine here were a worrying sign of what was to come in the later years. Another fine DVD issue with excellent detail and colour

 TWICE IS THE WAY TO LIVE

| | See all THEMOORE's reviews (184)

The big set pieces and gadgetry that began to filter through in the previous two Bond outings peak here in Sean Connery's last mission before hanging up the holster - or so he thought! A mission that sees Bond die, return from the grave, relocate to Japan and get married, All in order to stop Donald Pleasance's (Dr) evil villain Blofeld from starting World War Three!

In a script penned by Roald Dahl, You Only Live Twice certainly ups the elements of the franchise and sets the tone that more modern fans are familiar with, especially that of the gadgets, of which there is a very impressive scene in this with Bond taking on several baddy helicopters in a mini gyrocopter. In addition there are some other impressive sequences in the film as well. The scene where the ninjas enter the volcano is certainly one of them. In terms of the cast, Sean Connery is certainly well settled into the role of Bond, despite the lack of interest he appears to show at times, and this film also gives him a very good swansong, which is marred by the dismal Diamonds Are Forever in which he returned. As well as Sean, Bernard Lee is back as M and Desmond Llewellyn as Q as well as Lois Maxwell as Moneypenny with a few further great additions to the cast, namely Donald Pleasance's scared Ernst Stavro Blofeld - a villain that would be parodied for years to come!

The only downer that Twice presents is that it is without a doubt where the tone of the films changed dramatically, losing its serious and grittiness slightly. That aside, it is a very good Bond yarn, with some brilliant and stunning locations and stunts, it also rounded off Connery's tenure with the series nicely - shame he returned for Diamonds - and gave the series one of its recurring villains. As equally impressive as the script and the film itself is the opening credits which is visually pleasing while the theme song is one of the best of the series. Despite the big scale of the film and the great performances and theme song etc, the film is not the best of the series, yet it is certainly one of Connery's best and paved the way for what was to come.

 Ernst Satvro Blofeld one of best bond bad guys
