Never Say Never Again

Sean Connery (plays James Bond 007), Edward Fox (plays ‘M’), Kim Basinger (plays Domino Petashi), Barbara Carrera (plays Fatima Blush), Klaus Maria Brandauer (plays Maximillian Largo), Max Von Sydow (plays Blofeld, the Leader of Spectre), Gavan O’Herlihy (plays Jack Petachi )….

Never Say Never Again was released in 1983 and is Sean Connery’s 7th Bond film and was his last as this character. Never Say Never Again is considered an unofficial Bond film.

Two nuclear warheads have been captured by SPECTRE (Special Executive for Counter Intelligence Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion); headed by Blofeld (played by Max Von Sydow) and are being used to extort money from the NATO countries. Largo (played by Klaus Maria Brandauer) is their number one villain and is in charge of keeping the warheads hidden and ready for use if Spectres demands are not met. Largo uses the beautiful but dangerous Fatima Blush (played by Barbara Carrera); a hired killer to ensure all the loose ends are tied and those who need silencing are silenced.

James Bond (played by Sean Connery) is no longer on active service as a 00 agent and is now used to teach students instead. However, his own training continues including participating in war games. Bond’s superior ‘M’ (played by Edward Fox) is unhappy with the results of his war game training and believes James is getting a little out of shape and not eating correctly. ‘M’ sends James to the Shrublands health farm where he is to undergo a regiment of health food and exercise to clean his body of free radicals and get back into shape. It is while at Shrublands James sees some very suspicious activity and in turn gets a visit from a henchman trying to silence him for good.

It is also at this health farm SPECTRE coincidently begin their plan of world domination by using drug addicted Airman Jack Petachi (played by Gavan O’Herlihy and Domin’s sister) to give them the necessary inside connection for the takeover of the missiles. This is accomplished by using an ingenious method of implanting a corneal replica of the Presidents eye onto Jack’s eye allowing him to fool the security scan of his identity.

SPECTRE contact NATO with their demands; Foreign Secretorytells ‘M’ he must reactivate the 00’s onto active service. James Bond is set out to track down Largo and find the missing warheads before it is too late. He uses all means at his disposal including getting close to Largo through his girlfriend Domino (played by Kim Basinger).
