After Diamonds are Forever, Sean Connery said he’d never play Bond again, but 12 years later he made this one at age 52, hence its title. Not the best Bond but one of the campiest. What can I say, I like the pre-CGI effects, when it’s just a man in a tuxedo, a fogged-up faceshield and sheer riding talent that outwits SPECTRE. The motorcycle morphs from a tricked-out Yamaha Seca Turbo to some sort of dirtbike for the big-air shots, and there’s a Renault R5 Turbo involved as well, which seemed pretty trick at the time…
