Review of Dr. No

As an avid Bond fan, and seeing this film when it was first released, it will always hold a special place in my heart.
The action starts when Bond is summoned from his late night at the Casino and women, to fly to Jamaica to sort out the the problems of missing British agents and staff.
He encounter an hostile reception especially from Dr No's co-horts who are trying to stop him reaching Dr No's island.
The story is a fairly simple on - get Dr No - and the pace and action of the film are supberb from Director Terence Young.
The atmoshere of Jamaica, the girls, the car chase sequence and the build up to the explotion of Dr No's Island base were to become the staple diet of a number of Bond films, and in particular, the Sean Connery and Roger Moore era of Bond.
This film set a winning formula for audiences and some, like me, were hooked from the very beginning and wanted more of the action as each film was released.
I cannot end the review without mentioning Usula Andress as Honey Ryder and her entrance into the story by walking out of the sea in the teriffic bikini she almost wore.
While the film lacked some of the finesse and cadgets of the later Bond films, I found the non-use of gadgets more appealing as brute force was needed more by Bond in this film than the later ones.
An enjoyable watch to anyone who has not seen this film.
8.5/10
