After agent Strangways (Tim Moxon) of the British Secret Service is killed while on duty in Jamaica, agent James Bond (Sean Connery) is sent down to investigate - and soon enough, he, along with American agent Felix Leiter (Jack Lord), learn about an allegedly haunted island even the local fishermen try to avoid at all costs, which is run by a Chinaman apparently, a certain Dr.No (Joseph Wiseman), who seems to be mining the island's rich uranium supply while having ulterior motives.

Bond of course soon heads for the island, where he meets beautiful island girl Honey Rider (Ursula Andress) - and in no time at all, No has made them his prisoners, to torture them to his own enjoyment while gloating about his plans to rule the world with an arsenal of ingenious inventions. However, it wouldn't be James Bond would he not find a way to escape captivity and spoil No's plans (which he only learned from the man himself) to (ab-)use an American rocket launch to his own advantage. But that's not enough, Bond manages to flood No's island hideout, too, free Honey Rider, kill the villain, and blow up his operations for good ...

And in the end, he's left floating in a nutshell with beautiful Ms Rider - and what more could you ask for.


Of course, from an intellectual point of view, there is much to say against Dr. No, it feels a little bit like a blend of the Lemmy Caution-formula and an island girl feature of the Dorothy Lamour or Maria Montez-variety (the island girl, by the way, also was in Ian Fleming's source novel), with Sean Connery being way too suave to be believable as a tough guy secret agent (even though his performance as such is flawless).

All of this is perfectly true of course ... and it also compeltely misses the point: Dr. No is of course not an intellectual, realistic depiction of Secret Service-work, its an escapist piece of suspense and adventure cinema (intentionally) chock full of larger-than-life characters and exotic locations, outrageous plottwists and out-of-this-world set-designs - and director Terence Young, balancing out plot, setpieces and production values, sees to it that this all comes to life perfectly, making this one, the first theatrical James Bond-feature, also one of the best and most stringent films of the series (many of the series' later films lose their plots in favour of their setpieces, which in all their glory often seem a bit bloodless without a story to go with them). And even though Dr. No cannot deny its early 1960's look of course, the film has aged rather well (also something not necessarily true for later films of the series).
