I finally saw this after having heard it maligned for so long. I actually liked it better than some of the absurd special effects laden Bond films. Can't say I adored Lazenby Bond, but he wasn't as bad as I'd been led to believe. This one actually feels somewhat European and almost believable.

James Bond saves Contessa Teresa "Tracy" di Vicenzo from drowning. This flick had a few coincidences like Tracy spotting Bond in a skating rink or Ernst Stavro Blofeld's knowing where they were. It tends to drag in the middle and only picks up during the ski scenes, avalanche and rescuing Tracy. Blofeld was never caught and vows revenge on Bond with a shocking conclusion. George Lazenby lifeless acting coupled with a few bad editing just didn't impress this reviewer. The passion of the main figure was present but is overshadowed by the lack of a decent plot and exciting action sequences. On Her Majesty's Secret Service lacked the coolness and gadgets that make a good Bond movie.

A break in the mold of the previous films, with a new Bond and new direction. It may stick out as different, but I enjoy it just the same. I thought the opening scene looked fantastic for a film at that time.

A solid bond movie that was way ahead of its time in terms of special effects, action, and acting. Thankfully, this movie lacked most of the cheese that the other bond movies tend to have in the 70s and 80s. Not quite my favorite bond but still better than many of the Roger Moore Bonds.

"On Her Majesty's Secret Service" by Yojimbo

George Lazenby takes over the role of Bond from Sean Connery and he is, frankly, terrible. He delivers dreadfully cheesy one-liners with none of the suave wit of his predecessor and has a level of woodenness that would make Roger Moore blush. Technically, things are no better; the direction is hopelessly amateurish, which combines with a corny script and matter of fact sexism that makes it all feel like an episode of The Persuaders or similar. In fact the risque sexuality of Bond descends to the level of a Carry On film during a painful sequence in which Lazenby resembles a kilted Blue Peter presenter. The film's only saving graces are John Barry's score and the pure charisma and sex appeal of co-star Diana Rigg. Otherwise it's a waste of an extremely long running time that ranks amongst...

"This never happened to the other fellow".

"On Her Majesty's Secret Service" marks the sixth film in the Bond series and the first without the great Sean Connery. I was very curious as to how George Lazenby would hold up as James Bond, and I must concede that although he was passable, this Australian model lacks the charisma, macho coolness and humor of Connery.

Telly Savalas puts in a surprisingly good turn as the evil and menacing maniac genius Ernst Stavro Blofeld who is brainwashing and programming people to spread diseases throughout the twelve major countries of the world and Diana Rigg is superb as the self reliant gorgeous and witty Contessa.

The longest and one of the slowest Bond film that does not really get going until the final third but the location filming in Switzerland is simply breathtaking and there are so...
