a very unique addition to the Bond series

I have read some of the negative reviews for this movie and I have to say that I agree with NONE of them except for the slightly unnecessary two and a half hour length. Regardless, this doesn't ruin On Her Majesty's Secret Service in any way to warrant a serious complaint as far as I'm concerned. As with the positive reviews this film received, I agree with most all of them. For one, George Lazenby replacing Sean Connery as Bond may have displeased some but I think he did just as good of a job and would not have minded a bit if he became the next Bond for a few more films. This movie also had some enjoyable action scenes; some of which would later get mimicked in future Bond installments. The bond girl is by far one of the best. To be a little more specific, this bond girl plays a significant part in the Bond series as a whole that no other bond girl shares. However, I won't reveal why that is because I don't usually give spoilers for the courtesy of those who haven't seen the films that I review. The ending alone for this movie got several mixed reviews but I can say with certainty that had it not ended the way it did, the Bond franchise might have come to an end.

Bond Six

Movie Review: "007: On Her Majesty's Secret Service" (1969) After "You Only Live Twice" released on June 12th 1967 and Sean Connery's departure as leading actor, it takes another 20 months before principal photography can commence for the six installment of the next "007" movie, which resets itself with initial screenwriter Richard Maibaum (1909-1991) adapting the 10th James Bond novel by Ian Fleming (1908-1964). The leading actor changes to 29-year-old Australian actor George Lazenby with his one-time appearance as the character of MI6-Spy "007", who builds a fine and decisive chemistry with the suicidal character of Contessa Teresa di Vicenzo, portrayed by emancipated and active actress Diana Rigg at the age of 30. Bond saves Tracy in a fulminate full frontal confrontation pre-title sequence. Together they take on the character of crime organization "Spectre"-leading Ernst S. Blofeld, this time in an highly versatile as subtle performance by Telly Savalas (1922-1994), given one of the most accomplished Bond nemesis interpretation. The soundtrack by composer John Barry (1933-2011) reaches his instrumental heights with "On Her Majesty's Secret Service", even though the main title sequence designed by Maurice Binder (1925-1991) marks a low point in the entire "007" movie series. Nertheless this Bond picture reaches maximum story-telling suspenses with its love story, Blofeld's biological warfare on a mountain top research facility filled with brainwashed women and ski- as bob run action scenes. © 2017 Felix Alexander Dausend (Cinemajesty Entertainments LLC)

One of the best Bond films, with a stand-alone star

This was the sixth Bond film, and the only one starring George Lazenby as Bond. He was surprisingly good, despite a pair of outwardly jutting bat ears and a slight edge of goofiness. Lazenby had been an unknown male model before winning this role, then he ridiculously declined to ever act as Bond again, a decision he later publicly regretted. So, its stand-alone nature makes it unique in the Bond catalog, but on its own merits, it's one of the very best films of the entire series, with a sinister Telly Savalas bringing actual physically threatening demeanor to the role of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, and Diana Rigg as a captivating heroine, a Bond girl with evident brains, guts and ample self-determination. It features a taut, no-nonsense script, with a tongue-in-cheek opening teaser sequence. ("This never happened to the other fellow," the other fellow being Sean Connery, who had walked away from the franchise after "You Only Live Twice," then returned in one later last official performance, "Diamonds Are Forever.") Savalas was menacing and smoothly evil, this time Blofeld is threatening global destruction of major foodstuffs crops as the means of an enormous extortion scheme, biological warfare to be delivered by a cadre of brainwashed beauties, Blofeld's Angels of Death. The flick boasts rich location settings in Portugal and Switzerland, plus some of the best alpine action scenes ever filmed in the entire Bond series, capped by that wicked fight during the long, long bobsled run. The score by John Barry was excellent, as was Peter Hunt's direction. Critics at the time found Lazenby merely passable, but I found him to be droll, emotive and athletic in the proper proportions, big ears or not. Savalas and Rigg brought their late 60s star power to bear, and the result both shakes and stirs, especially with the shocking ending. This film is among those few in the Bond series that is worthy of repeated viewing, it's right up there with "Goldfinger, From Russia With Love, Diamonds Are Forever, The Spy Who Loved Me, Tomorrow Never Dies, and Skyfall." (Note that I refuse to designate one of the two droning, spiritless Timothy Dalton Bond entries as among the best.)
