‘Beautifully observed and a laugh-out-loud joy’
‘An affectionately droll Bond-by-Bond stroll through the films we know and love, whether we like them or not’
‘A book full of Bond love and occasional bewilderment’
‘Nobody does it better. John Rain delivers his love letter to Bond with a raised eyebrow that would do Roger Moore proud’
THIS IS THE GUIDE TO THE JAMES BOND MOVIES YOU NEVER KNEW YOU NEEDED.
The Bond films have entertained, excited and sometimes irritated cinemagoers (and ITV4 viewers) for more than fifty years, inspiring awe and adoration around the world for the inimitable 007 – Her Majesty’s most incorrigible spy.
After all, who hasn’t wanted to kick a big bloke with metal teeth in the groin? Fly a small plane out of a pretend horse’s bottom? Or push a middle-aged man into space? No one, that’s who.
In 007’s world of sexy espionage, there are international criminal organisations to infiltrate, henchmen to outsmart and endless one-liners to crack. This unofficial dossier of Bond’s best moments is an affectionately irreverent take on the spine-tingling highs and jaw-dropping lows of the greatest (and sometimes worst) spy in movie history.
So fire up the Aston Martin DB5, dust off your jetpack and ask Moneypenny to hold your calls – John Rain is taking us on a journey through each of the twenty-four films to date. Our target: Bond, James Bond.
