You Only Live Twice Reviews
This noisy and wildly violent picture... is evidently pegged to the notion that nothing succeeds like excess. And because it is shamelessly excessive, it is about a half-hour too long.
the action scenes are quite enjoyable and the special effects are terrific. But the story is just so lazy and lackluster that I became uninterested during any scenes that didn't contain gunshots or explosions.
What seems like a floundering follow-up to the canned, constrained "Thunderball" rights the ship with imaginative storytelling, impeccable production design and furious filmmaking flourishes that introduce the Bond hallmarks of stunts and spectacles.
