On Her Majesty's Secret Service - Movie Review

On Her Majesty's Secret Service features an awesome screenplay. Most importantly the screenplay sticks closely to the actual novel of Ian Fleming. The technicolor cinematography, locations, music are so perfectly incorporated. The action sequences are highly exciting, which attract the viewers. George Lazenby's serious effort in the movie is really appreciable throughout the play! On Her Majesty's Secret Service is One of the best James Bond series ever created. Although the genius - George Lazenby has made James Bond a little laid-back kind of a character, which actually James is not. This has sometimes made the character of James boring to some viewers. The scenes with the 'hypnotized' women have appeared a bit unrealistic and immature. George Lazenby's acting in scenes of flirting with Rigg have been appreciable, but somewhere George unknowingly exposed his stiffness, which took away the cherry from the cake.

Yet still Golden Gun had featured better stunts on certain few sequences. Very powerful acting by Telly Sevalas (Ernst Stavro Blofeld) and Diane Rigg (Traci Bond) has definitely added spice to the movie. Overall the movie was highly entertaining. But sometimes it was felt that Sean Connery would have been a bit better as Bond.
