TV4 Bondfilm 18 december Never Say Never Again (1983) Sean Connery
James Bond matches wits with a charming but sinister tycoon who is holding the world nuclear hostage as part of a diabolical plot by SPECTRE. Connery’s return to the world of Bond after 12 years is smooth in this remake of ”Thunderball” hampered by an atrocious musical score. Carrera is stunning as Fatima Blush. Although Connery is back, purists will have qualms considering this part of the ”official” Bond series since longtime Bond producer, Albert ”Cubby” Broccoli, had nothing to do with this endeavor. Sean Connery is back for his final performance as superagent James Bond in this high-velocity action thriller from the director Kevin McClory..
When two atomic warheads are hijacked by the evil SPECTRE organization, Agent 007 is hurled into an explosive, pulse-pounding race to save the world from nuclear terrorists!
Never Say Never Again is NOT considered one of the official Bond films. The ”official” Bond films are made by MGM/UA and at least one Broccoli. Never Say Never Again was made by Warner Bros and no Broccoli’s worked on it. In fact, the film was released at the same time as Octopussy as a rival. It was a remake of Thunderball. That is not to say that it wasn’t a good movie, just not one of the ”official” series.

- Kevin McClory had the rights to remake Thunderball (but no other Bond film) because of his collaboration with Ian Fleming. This film is not part of the regular franchise.
- Connery said he’d never play Bond again. His wife helped convince him otherwise and came up with the title as well.
- The casino where Bond and Largo square off in a videogame battle (baccarat is old, apparently) is named Casino Royale.
