James Bond: You Only Live Twice (1967)

Finally! After this film we get a mini-break from Sean Connery’s reign of terror!

This time 007 heads off to Japan and feels a bit tall and silly, I imagine. On the plus side, he gets to hang out with the Japanese secret service’s special ninja force, which must have been pretty cool.

He’s not just there to have fun though, oh no! He’s there to investigate some spacejackings before the US and the USSR get themselves so worked up they nuke each other.

Directed by Roald Dahl, Bond gets killed off, becomes Japanese and gets married. But then it’s down to work and time to get all up inside Blofeld’s volcano.

While I’m getting a little tired of S.P.E.C.T.R.E, I think this is the best Bond yet. Setting it in Japan gave it quite a fresh and interesting feel.
