Never Say Never Again (1983)
Michael A. Novelli
on Tuesday, July 26, 2011
Mr. Mendo once again explores the world of subpar James Bond films with Never Say Never Again, featuring Sean Connery returning to the role of 007 after a 12 year absence. In the movie, Blofeld threatens to detonate two stolen nuclear warheads unless SPECTRE’s demands are met, which eventually leads to a massive underwater battle. And if that synopsis sounds familiar, it’s because Never Say Never Again was legally required to have the exact same plot as Thunderball.
The movie also stars Klaus Maria Brandauer as a Eurotrash supervillain, Kim Basinger as his kept woman, Bernie Casey as the first black Felix Leiter (suck on that, Jeffrey Wright!), Rowan Atkinson as a completely unnecessary comic relief character, and a lot of random no-names playing Q, M, and Moneypenny.
An Interview with Albert Moses, Beloved British Character Actor
“It’s not easy to make your way in a strange country, but to make your way and end up a Knight of the Order of St. John? Not such an easy thing to do. Throw in some documentary work, motorcycle stunts, and being James Bond’s costar not once, but twice, and that sounds like a sweet deal to me. The only man I know of who did all this is Albert Moses, so join me as we discuss crass comedy, Dinka documentaries, manic Maharajahs, and much, much more!”
