Apollo Movie Guide 9 of 10
I have seen all of the corporate cookie cutter Bond films of the 1990s and into the 2000s but -- and this is nothing against the perfectly adequate man of Remington Steele -- the experience has been largely joyless. These films' adrenaline and testosterone-pumping formula lacks the wit, playfulness and exuberance of their 1960s progenitors. Sure, they look great (never better), but as they say in that infamous beer commercial, they are significantly less fulfilling. In the light of this, what a kick it is to rediscover the pleasures of early Bonds films...Driven by a series of invigorating and breathtaking action sequences and anchored by a Bond of rare emotional depth, On Her Majesty's Secret Service stands at the head of this elite class. It has the requisite "threat of world domination" plot, some jawdroppingly beautiful women and locations (as usual, women are presented much like the scenery--as eye candy) and a handful of exhilarating action sequences...Even the greatest fans of this film, a group that includes the illustrious and intelligent online critic James Berardinelli, concede that the one great flaw in this film is the casting of the unknown and inexperienced George Lazenby (his first and only appearance in the series) in the role of 007. The arguments range from complaints about his awkward attempts to emulate Sean Connery -- right down to the haircut -- to his stiff, dull line readings. There is little doubt that on the charisma meter, Lazenby comes up considerably short by comparison to Connery (who wouldn't?). However, Lazenby carries himself with assurance and poise throughout, quite at home in all the action sequences and surprisingly effective as a vulnerable Bond-in-love, helping to elevate this Bond beyond all others in the series. - Dan Jardine

With the exception of one production aspect, On Her Majesty's Secret Service is by far the best entry of the long-running James Bond series. The film contains some of the most exhilarating action sequences ever to reach the screen, a touching love story, and a nice subplot that has agent 007 crossing (and even threatening to resign from) Her Majesty's Secret Service. The problem is with Bond himself. Following Sean Connery's departure after You Only Live Twice, the film makers had to come up with a replacement. The man they chose, a model named George Lazenby, is boring, and his ineffectualness lowers the picture's quality...The climactic half-hour of On Her Majesty's Secret Service is almost non-stop action. There's a stunning night ski sequence, a car chase down icy streets and through the heart of a stock car race, an avalanche, a helicopter raid on Blofeld's clinic, and fisticuffs on a speeding bobsled...Of the eleven Bond films scored by John Barry, the composer's work for On Her Majesty's Secret Service is his best. Despite the absence of title song lyrics, the opening number is rousing...The love song, "We Have All the Time in the World", sung by Louis Armstrong, provides a perfect accompaniment to James and Tracy's growing attachment. And the placement of the "James Bond Theme" is without flaw...After the relative commercial failure of On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Lazenby thankfully retired from the role, and Connery returned for one more go-around. It's sad to consider what this film could have been with the original lead, but encouraging that it's so good without him. Even featuring an inferior 007, On Her Majesty's Secret Service is a landmark change-of-pace, and an exhilarating and affecting piece of entertainment. - James Berardinelli
