Editor's Note
Superspy James Bond (Sean Connery) gets tangled up in the wild world of international diamond smuggling. But hold on--the mission is not quite so simple as it seems; his chase of the jewel thieves leads him to conspirators with plans for unleashing a nuclear armageddon on an unsuspecting planet. The majority of the action takes place on the gaudy, glittering streets of Las Vegas, as Bond negotiates the grotesque terrain with his customary aplomb and fancy mechanical gadgets. As always, he manages to dally with several sexy bombshells along the way, including the wonderful Lana Wood as Plenty O'Toole. Connery is as suave and entertaining as ever, taking on the menacing Charles Gray, who is trying his hand at playing Bond's archenemy, Blofeld. Look for the car chase down a narrow alley.

Professional Reviews 8 of 10
In Diamonds, directed by Guy Hamilton, once again the villain is SPECTRE main-man Ernst Blofeld (Charles Gray), only this time the plot involves diamond-smuggling. Blofeld is out to corner the diamond market to operate his laser satellite and blackmail the world. In order to pull off the feat he kidnaps mega-millionaire Willard Whyte (Jimmy Dean) and assumes his identity. There's plenty of style and action in Diamonds, including the requisite one-liners and "snakepit situations," as the production team called them, and a climax full of explosions and fireballs...But tone has been the greatest variable in the Bond movies, and purists might find this one played a little too over-the-top, with diamond-smuggler Tiffany Case (Jill St. John) and other characters a bit caricaturish...Blofeld himself runs the risk of losing his status as a major villain when he sneaks out of a Las Vegas casino dressed in drag. That said, it's still great fun, with fast-paced action driven by clever writing, and filmed on location in Amsterdam and Las Vegas. Most memorable are the scenes where Plenty O'Toole (Lana Wood) is tossed from a balcony, and Bond and Case escape police by tilting their car onto two wheels and scooting sideways through a narrow alley. - James Plath

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
The cultists like the early James Bond movies best, but I dunno. They may have been more tightly directed films, but they didn't understand the Bond mythos as fully as "Goldfinger" and "Diamonds Are Forever." We see different movies for different reasons, and "Diamonds Are Forever" is great at doing the things we see a James Bond movie for...Not the least of these is the presence of Sean Connery, who was born to the role: dry, unflappable (even while trapped in a coffin at a crematorium), with a mouth that does as many kinds of sly grins as there are lascivious possibilities in the universe. There's something about his detachment from danger that props up the whole Bond apparatus, insulating it from the total ridiculousness only an inch away...The plot of "Diamonds Are Forever" is as complicated as possible. That's necessary in order to have somebody left after nine dozen bad guys have been killed. It has been claimed that the plot is too complicated to describe, but I think I could if I wanted to. I can't imagine why anyone would want to, though. The point in a Bond adventure is the moment, the surface, what's happening now. The less time wasted on plot, the better. - Roger Ebert
