Siskel & Ebert Review Sean Connery's return as James Bond 007 in 1983's Never Say Never AgainIt's two thumbs up for Sean Connery's triumphant return as James Bond 007 in Never Say Never AgainNever Say Never Again. If you have watched some of the other Siskel and Ebert reviews on The 007 Dossier you'll know that Gene Siskel is a great fan of Connery's Bond, and that he finds Moore's Bond to be "trivial, bemused and almost foppish". Both he and Roger Ebert are clearly genuinely excited to see him return to the role he originated, and they talk animatedly, each jumping in to support the claims of the other. In short, both critics describe the film as "terrific", and praise Klaus Maria Brandauer's portrayal of Bond Villain, Largo. Ebert says that most recent Bond Villains have been "cartoony... some kind of neo-Nazi robots with German accents, all the same", while Brandauer's Largo is "charming, seductive, has a sense of humor and is also evil." "He could exist and that makes Bond's challenge more exciting," adds Siskel.
