SPECTRE is building a secret base on a small Japanese island--and naturally the salvation of Western Civilization as we know it is in jeopardy. Bond to the rescue--fast cars, fast women, fast everything, and before you know it, Bond, M, Q, Miss Moneypenny (the whole gang) are back on top and the Free World is permitted to breathe safely once more. Good location shots in Japan, coupled with the clever, dry wit of 007, and “You Only Live

The review of this Movie prepared by Bill Hobbs

James Bond must uncover a devious plot concocted by S.P.E.C.T.R.E. in stealing U.S. and Soviet Space Vehicles from outer space and preventing all out war! Set in Japan, this outing truly has it's own uniqueness. Don't miss the wonderful Little Nelly sequence. Followed by On Her Majesty's Secret Service (with George Lazenby replacing Sean Connery as Bond).
