Movies starring Sean Connery

Hell Drivers

Hell Drivers (1957)   4/54/54/54/54/5

106 mins     Drama, Thriller      

I've heard "Hell Drivers" described as a social drama, a snapshot of 1950s life but if like me you know your westerns you will spot a familiar storyline. Here we have a story of a former convict wanting to go straight and fin...

Darby O

Darby O'Gill and the Little People (1959)   4/54/54/54/54/5

93 mins     Adventure , Family, Fantasy      

I don't remember the first time I watched "Darby O'Gill and the Little People" but I hadn't watched it for a few years until recently and got a pleasant surprise. The surprise was not only was it as charming and as fun as I r...

On the Fiddle

On the Fiddle (1961)   3/53/53/53/53/5

89 mins     Comedy      

Whilst Sean Connery will always be best known as James Bond he was in a variety of movies before he donned the tuxedo of the world's greatest agent and one of those was "On the Fiddle" a lightweight army comedy from the start...

Dr. No

Dr. No (1962)   4/54/54/54/54/5

110 mins     Action , Adventure , Thriller      

One of the most surprising things about the James Bond franchise is most of the movies run to a similar formula, 007 called in for a special mission which puts him in danger, meets an attractive female or two and takes on an ...

The Longest Day

The Longest Day (1962)   4/54/54/54/54/5

178 mins     Action , Drama, War      

Darryl F. Zanuck started producing movies back in 1925 when he was in his early twenties and in 48 years he was involved in the production of over 200 movies many of which are highly regarded as he worked with just about anyo...

From Russia with Love

From Russia with Love (1963)   4/54/54/54/54/5

115 mins     Action , Adventure , Thriller      

Whilst only the second movie in the long running franchise "From Russia with Love" is one of the best, although saying that if you enjoyed the comedy of the Roger Moore era then you will probably find it dull. What we have he...

Marnie

Marnie (1964)   3/53/53/53/53/5

130 mins     Mystery, Romance, Thriller      

Sometimes I feel that just because Alfred Hitchcock directed a movie some people automatically extol its virtues and rate it higher than maybe it deserves. One such movie for me is "Marnie" because whilst it is one sense clas...

Goldfinger

Goldfinger (1964)   4/54/54/54/54/5

110 mins     Action , Crime, Thriller      

When I reviewed the 2nd bond movie "From Russia With Love" I mentioned that one of its strengths was that it evolved various elements which were established in "Dr. No". And to be honest I can say the same about the 3rd movie...

Thunderball

Thunderball (1965)   3/53/53/53/53/5

130 mins     Action , Adventure , Thriller      

"Thunderball", the fourth James Bond movie, is most certainly not a bad movie but they say familiarity can breed contempt and whilst I don't dislike it, it does bore me a little. The trouble is that it runs to the formula whi...

You Only Live Twice

You Only Live Twice (1967)   3/53/53/53/53/5

117 mins     Action , Adventure , Sci-Fi      

For me the best James Bond movies were the ones which whilst having moments of wit and an array of gadgets were based in the real world. As such I am not a huge fan of "You Only Live Twice", I don't think it's terrible but wi...

Shalako

Shalako (1968)   3/53/53/53/53/5

113 mins     Western      

As a rule I enjoy westerns but yet I always seem to struggle with the westerns of the 60s which had heavy European influences. I don't mean the spaghetti westerns but the likes of "Shalako" which feature a dominant European c...

Diamonds Are Forever

Diamonds Are Forever (1971)   3/53/53/53/53/5

120 mins     Action , Adventure , Sci-Fi      

"On Her Majesty's Secret Service" wasn't a bad Bond movie but as the first of the official franchise not to feature Sean Connery it didn't quite work. So with Connery lured back to be Britain's top agent for "Diamonds Are For...

The Anderson Tapes

The Anderson Tapes (1971)   3/53/53/53/53/5

99 mins     Crime, Drama, Thriller

The Wind and the Lion

The Wind and the Lion (1975)   3/53/53/53/53/5

119 mins     Action , Adventure , Drama      

In my book casting Sean Connery as a Moroccan Chief is curious because you can't hide Connery's distinct accent and in truth why would you as Connery sounding anything but himself would be wrong. But in a strange way the stra...

The Man Who Would Be King

The Man Who Would Be King (1975)   3/53/53/53/53/5

The Great Train Robbery

The Great Train Robbery (1979)   3/53/53/53/53/5

107 mins     Adventure , Crime, Drama      

What is it which is so appealing watching say Danny Ocean and his team pull of a heist in one of the Ocean's movies, or how about Ethan Hunt sneaking in to a building in one of those Mission: Impossible movies? It isn't just ...

Time Bandits

Time Bandits (1981)   3/53/53/53/53/5

116 mins     Adventure , Comedy      

For those who have never experienced a Terry Gilliam movie it is just that an experience of quirkiness, of strange and dam right weird. As such it has to be said that a Gilliam movie can be great for some and just wrong for o...

Never Say Never Again

Never Say Never Again (1983)   3/53/53/53/53/5

134 mins     Action , Adventure , Thriller      

I reckon Sean Connery must have been laughing all the way to the bank when he was asked to star in "Never Say Never Again", not only was he paid handsomely to return to the iconic role of James Bond but here he was in what is...

Highlander

Highlander (1986)   3/53/53/53/53/5

116 mins     Action , Fantasy      

"Highlander" is a curious movie, well any movie that has a Scot playing an Egyptian and a Frenchman playing a Scot has got to go down in anyone's book as being curious. But it is curious for more than just this casting, it's ...
