With the myriad of stories floating around about Lazenby's decision to quit Bond, this appears to be the truthful version - reinforced because of Lazenby's truthful and genuine telling of his story. His reflection on the Bond days in both rare interview footage from the time, coupled with the reflection of his love for Belinda, rings true. nnThe only downside? Aside from Jane Seymour's casting, the rest of the ensemble during the re- enactments are woeful. Lawson proves he isn't cut out for biopics (again, mind) and Clementi extends her soap opera acting here, disallowing the audience to buy into their relationship. The actor playing Saltzman created a cartoonish depiction of the producer; the portrayal of Hunt was less intrusive, but not necessarily good. nnNegativity aside, it was excellent to see clips of the Bond films and interviews interwoven, as well an excellent score underpinning the visual content (with a welcome appearance of the Bond theme). nnInformative and honest, funny and warm. But a little disappointed by some of the acting.
