Released in 1962, Dr. No has been a trendsetter for all the James Bond movies released so far. The first of its kind, this movie gave total importance to the plot. Simplicity was its trade mark as the movie had no freaky gadgets and unnecessary sci-fi or violent elements like the recent ones. It obviously had beautiful skimpily clad women adding to the glam quotient, but the movie was definitely serious business. Pierce Brosnan earmarked the character of Bond in this famous flick and Ursula Andress (Honey Ryder), Zena Marshall (Miss Taro) and Eunice Gayson (Sylvia Trench) played the eye candies in the movie.
The movie as the name suggests is about the bad guy Dr. Julius No (Joseph Wiseman) and his secret island called the Crab Key. The story denotes a connection between the murder of a British agent, a few rocket launching failures of the US and Dr. No. Bond is all set to solve the mystery behind this connection. Dr. No basically wants to control the world and keep trading with governments through his unique atomic wave research which can control the rockets and missiles that are being launched by America. Bond discovers this and finally in his signature style beats the bad guy to death and flees with the woman.
The movie received a good response at the box office and movie lovers have given it a good 7.3 out of 10 on movie review site IMDB. Pierce Brosnan’s work has also been applauded. Hence for being a Bond series fan, this flick is a must see.
