ReviewSource ReelViews
Review Forever remembered as the "Japanese Bond", You Only Live Twice takes 007 to the Far East for his fifth screen adventure, Sean Connery's final consecutive appearance as the top British agent (the actor returned to the role twice more: 1971's Diamonds Are Forever and 1983's Never Say Never Again). Unfortunately, this is also among the weakest of the early Bond films, although Connery is in peak form...Nevertheless, any Bond movie with Sean Connery can't be all bad, and there are the usual chases, fights, and amazing stunts -- all sprinkled with a dash of Japanese flavoring...Then there's the usual assortment of women, both European and Asian, for Britain's most dashing secret service agent to romance. In short, while You Only Live Twice falls somewhere in the middle of the 007 film heap, it still offers that unique brand of wit, style, and adventure that only comes with Bond.

ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review You Only Live Twice is unfairly maligned; people accuse Connery of boredom and they find the action fantastical. Those claims can be supported, but You Only Live Twice is a landmark in the series. It is the first Bond film with a mostly original script, and it is the film that establishes the template for later films in the series. Some argue that You Only Live Twice was the turning point that plunged the series into larger-than-life action fests. I am here to prove that this film provided for the longevity of the franchise. The great Bond girls, impressive sets, charismatic characters, and envelope-pushing action don't hurt...You Only Live Twice has a different feel than other Bond movies. It is surrealistic, a convoluted puzzle. There are valid criticisms to be made of You Only Live Twice, but it is easy to miss the strengths of it.
