Atom User Reviews for Dr. No (James Bond)
The first James Bond movie on the big screen is just awesome.
There are no gadgets, forcing Bond to rely on his ingenuity (in one scene, when he needs to breathe while submerged, he uses hollowed-out reeds as air tubes). The single car chase is reasonably straightforward. And, for the only time in the series, 007 is unmistakably brutalized, appearing bloody, beaten, and disheveled as a result.
The beginning of the super-successful franchise, this remains one of the most satisfying Bond films.
