Having transitioned with ease from producer to director to helm the underrated Layer Cake, Matthew Vaughn continues to impress with another violent, overtly commercial action flick based on a comic book.
As with the Kick Ass hall shoot-out, there's one particular scene set to seemingly random music that particularly stands out. Action thriller Olympus Has Fallen became quite the success back in the March of 2013, when Gerard Butler played a disgraced secret service agent that retakes the Whitehouse and saves the president after a terrorist attack. Firstly, there is the release date for the sequel, with Feature Focus stating that they have acquired the distribution rights to London Has Fallen, and that the sequel has been given a release date of the 2nd of October next year, reports Cinema Blend.
Gerard Butler will reprise his role as Mike Banning, as will Aaron Eckhart, who played US President Benjamin Asher, whilst Morgan Freeman will also reprise his role as Speaker Trumbull, although at this time London Has Fallen has no director attached.
Plot wise the London Has Fallen official release says… “The sequel to the worldwide smash hit “Olympus Has Fallen” begins in London, where the British Prime Minister has passed away under mysterious circumstances. Just as with Kick Ass, the source material comes from Mark Millar and regular writing cohort Jane Goldman is once again on board to help pen this entertaining homage to Bond and co. There is more than one conversation about Bond, Bauer and Bourne, but the script is just far enough on the witty side of self-awareness, and it ultimately feels more like a nod to those characters than a rip-off. To delve any further would be veering on spoiler territory, but it's actually properly mental (innit, etc.). This, and a barrage of other elements, makes Kingsman one of the most entertaining action flicks we've seen in a while. Shortly after the success of the movie it was confirmed a sequel would follow, called London Has Fallen, and now we have some more information about that sequel.
When he's arrested for crashing a stolen car, he's bailed out by an old military friend of his father - who he subsequently learns is actually a secret agent working for an elite, inexplicably well-dressed independent agency who strive to take down the world's bad guys (think Archer with a stiffer upper lip). Vaughn knows exactly how to shape modern British characters in outlandish situations and he has a blast here, as does an unusually-cast Firth in a physically challenging role. Vaughn continues to show a flair for action and his work here is as fluid as ever, while his trademark 'cheeky peek under the hood of the British establishment' is played purely for fun and absolutely works. But what starts out as the most protected event on earth, turns into a deadly plot to kill the world’s most powerful leaders and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. Sure, he has the 'slick' thing down pat - but he's surprisingly effective with the action stuff, be it CGI-aided or not.
Jackson's internet billionaire is one of those bad guys, and Eggsy must first make it through dangerous basic training before becoming one of the coveted 'Kingsmen', tackling the nerdy, evil-doing bastard and thwarting his very 21st century plans.
The title was shared by a rare British nautical novel of the 19th Century which was discovered by Fleming’s friend Sir John Nicholas Henderson (aka Nicko Henderson) at a Portbello Road book stall in London.
It was released by Avalon Books’ Victory Games and was designed by Gerard Christopher Klug. The cover art picture of James Bond was not based on George Lazenby but was an amalgam of the likeness of both Sean Connery and Roger Moore and most closely resembled the poster for The Spy Who Loved Me. Staying so close to the source actually caused some continuity problems due to the different order of the films. For example, in this film Bond and Blofeld seem to be meeting for the first time, despite having met face-to-face in the film version of You Only Live Twice. Some details are different: Count Bleauville is changed to Count Bleauchamp, and Ruby Windsor becomes Ruby Barrett. The situations of Bond’s taking a leave of absence, and his discovery by Blofeld, are different. Blofeld is completely different in appearance from Telly Savalas, being described as having long silvery-white hair, an aquiline nose, a wrinkled forehead, a slender body, a nostril that has been eaten away by tertiary syphilis, and no earlobes.
This is the last time that the name of the actor playing Bond appears below the title, and in several of the ads for the film, there is an image of a faceless Bond. Since George Lazenby was a virtual unknown when he was cast as Bond, initial teaser advertising for the film emphasized the Bond character rather than the actor playing him.
It was followed by a serialized, shortened version of the novel You Only Live Twice (not the film version) in the April 1964 issue. For help with Draco, he must becomes very close friends with her daughter, Tracy, and heads off to hunt down Ernst Stavro Blofeld one more time. This takes him to Switzerland, where he must pose as Sir Hilary Bray to find out the secret plan of Blofeld. The facility is covered with Blofeld’s guards and well as his hench-woman, Irma Bunt. Bond happens to be driving on a country coastal road in Portugal in his Aston-Martin when he’s passed by a woman driving a Mercury Cougar.
When Bond drags her back, he is attacked by several thugs, whom he is able to beat in hand-to-hand combat. When he turns his attention back to the mysterious woman, he sees her driving off in her Cougar.
Tracy leaves the hotel the next morning and when James tries to trail her, he is apprehended by several more men who take him to Tracy’s father, Marc-Ange Draco, head of a powerful European crime organization which is called Union Course. Moneypenny, however, subverts Bond’s wishes and enters a request for two weeks leave. Bond can now pursue Blofeld on his own time, however, he goes back to Portugal for a birthday party being thrown for Draco. While there, Tracy reveals that she knows about the deal her father struck with Bond; she does not want to be used this way and demands her father help Bond. Tracy and Bond officially begin their courtship.In Bern, Bond infiltrates the law firm of a man named Gebruder Gumbol and finds letters from Blofeld to the London College of Arms.


Returning to London and meeting with an expert at the College (who shows the agent the Bond family coat-of-arms) he informs Bond that Blofeld is attempting to claim the title of the Comte Balthazar de Bleuchamp of Switzerland. There he finds Blofeld who has taken up the identity of an epidemiologist who specializes in allergy research. Bond finds that Blofeld’s guests are about 10 beautiful women, all allergy sufferers, whose illnesses have allegedly been cured.
Though he is essentially imprisoned in his room at night, Bond figures a way to open the door and goes to the room of a woman, named Ruby, who surreptitiously gave him the number and has sex with her.
While they lay together a strange light and sound treatment begins over the bed and the woman appears hypnotized.
Bond leaves her room, returning to his own where he finds another one of the women, named Nancy, waiting. Bond is able to escape the room and steals a skiing uniform and skis rapidly down the mountain as Blofeld and several of his men give chase. Bond arrives in the village of Muren and meets Tracy and the two escape Bunt and several of Blofeld’s henchmen in her car when they drive through a car race.
Bond and Tracy find a secluded barn to hold up for the night; Bond proposes to Tracy and she accepts, but will not allow him to sleep together with her.
She relents when Bond pulls her into his own bedding.In the morning, Tracy and Bond ski away from the barn, with Blofeld and a few of his men close behind.
When it seems like Bond and Tracy will escape, Blofeld causes an avalanche that they are unable to stay ahead of and are buried. Bond instead enlists the help of Draco, who provides helicopters and a strike team from Union Course.At the Piz Gloria, Blofeld keeps Tracy in his company and even proposes to her. Just then, Bond, Draco and their men attack the Piz Gloria and stop Blofeld from sending his orders to the women. Bond finds Blofeld escaping in a bobsled and chases him in a second one, catching up and boarding Blofeld’s sled. They tussle briefly until Bond is able to hold Blofeld up to catch a forked tree branch, leaving him there injured and unconscious. Bond gains control of the sled and stops it.A lavish wedding is thrown for Bond and Tracy and they are married. They travel a few miles and Bond stops to remove some of the flower chains decorating their car. Suddenly, a car driven by a very-much alive Blofeld (now wearing a neck brace) races by and Irma Bunt opens fire on Bond’s car with an assault rifle. Bond survives the drive-by attack by ducking behind the car and recognizes Blofeld immediately and jumps back in the car with Tracy to give chase, but Tracy is dead; hit in the head by a bullet that went through the windshield killing her instantly.
There is so much choppy editingand dubbed dialogue, one begins to suspect he is watching a foreign film.
One reason may be that the film went WAY over both shootingschedule and budget, and there was enoughmade up `bad’ press to put a great deal of pressure on the producers, firsttime director, Peter Hunt and star, George Lazenby. In the middle of itall, Lazenby’s publicist announced that Lazenby was not going to do anotherBond (Lazenby is credible when he says that announcement was not his idea. Quite the contrary, OHMSS is one of the BEST of the Bond films,filled with nonstop action, outstanding stunts, incredible sound, the bestscore (along with `Goldfinger’) and a credible enough romance to lend itgenuine poignancy. Lazenby, refreshingly displays no bitterness that his career nearly ended assoon as it began.
In truth On Her Majesty’s Secret Service is areturn to the less Gadget and Comic Book laden world of the likes ofGoldfinger and You Only Live Twice, and echoes the Flemmingesque thrillerworld of Dr No and From Russia With Love. Those who dont like the firsttwoadditions to the Bond series dont flinch, On Her Majesty’s Secret Servicehas a strenghth and style beaming with enegy and excitement twinned withrealism. Well, on abudgetof $9million and with worldwide grosses of $80million, hopefully thenotionof disapointment will disapeer. There is also the fact that the Video andDVD versions of the movie consistently outsell all other Bond Titlesworldwide. Lazenby rivals Connery in theRomantic and Action scenes and does pretty well with the dramatic scenes.Intruth he is the most under-rated Bond. Diana Rigg isbeautifull and very believable as the Contessa, Tracy, with whom our Jamesfalls in love with, and eventually marries.
Rigg displays a full range ofacting and beauty to make her the most memorable of Bond Girls, and forone,wich i dont mean to sopil, inparticular. TheAlpine sets, and Skiing and Bobsled chases really bring out the purestsenseof adventure. The movie has really thrilling ski chases, youreally do believe a man can ski, and once more think you are skiing withhim.This is very much THE Christmas Bond movie. It is also soaked withsomedelightful christmas themes by the master John Barry, composing perhapshisbest Bond theme.
We Have All the Time in the world, sung by LouisArmstrongis a beautifuly moving song, made all the more so by Tracy’s fate at theendof the movie. By far the most under-rated of theBond movies, and a strong contender for the Best Bond Movie of all time.This is the greatest.
I was surprised at how slowpace and dark it was, and how Bond wasn’t this confident, suave characterwho always knows what to do. Of course, he is the best film version of JamesBond,but he is too good a suave character to be Bond. The biggest gripe I have about PierceBrosnan is how he sometimes doesn’t get a grip of things on set and hissomewhat higher, softer voice (and also how he pumps endless rounds ofautomatic fire upon enemies who have a propensity for getting hit while hehimself has to be missed by endless rounds of enemy fire).


The other four actors have playedtheir versions of Bond, but Lazenby is the only believable, human,imperfectJames Bond. They did nothave Handicams and they certainly did not have Photoshop to blendprojectedimages as well as we can nowadays.
But they certainly do not distract theexcitement from some of the best snow scenes in 007 films.
The sled chase is excellent also.OHMSS is the only film where Bond drinks beer and gets married. Whichbrings me up to the next point, that Diana Riggs as Tracy Draco (laterBond)happens to be perhaps the best Bond girl ever. Without doubt, she is fullof excitement and danger, not afraid to strap on a couple of skis amidgunfire and avalanche.
She isBond’s identical counterpart, experienced but having gotten nothing out ofrelationships, and quite a driver also.
Her surpriseappearance at the Christmas celebration brightens up everything in aninstant, and the ending is probably the only genuinely sad scene in all 20of the Bond films.The opening scene is great in terms of action, but I found it ratherdisappointing that for no apparent reason, baddies want to kill Bond. He isspiedon by Draco’s men who take him in, and the rest of the story is told inflashback, with a car chase leading up to the casino scene and rendezvous,without all this fighting mysterious bad guys in between. It makes much more sense when he has already met Tracy.Yet some of the additions to the movie are good, such as having Tracy withBlofeld when SPECTRE headquarters is attacked.
It makes it that much morepersonal.This is my first review on IMDB, and OHMSS gets a well-deserved 10 out of10. Bond in kilts, hypnosis, world domination, and Blofeld’s cat combinetomake it a worthy experience.
If Lazenby had gone on to make more Bond films (andit was his own decision not to do so) he could well have developed intoa very fine OO7, but as it is I still find his performance in OHMSSperfectly acceptable, and not damaging to the film in any way.The film itself represented a conscious attempt to get back to Flemingafter the increasingly extravagant antics of Thunderball and You OnlyLive Twice. Director Peter Hunt, who had edited the classic earlyConnery films, was very keen to remain faithful to Fleming’s originalstory, and as a result OHMSS has an unusually strong emphasis oncharacter and plot, with the gadgetry and humour found in most Bondfilms largely jettisoned. Rather like From Russia with Love, OHMSSfeels like a real spy adventure, as Bond tracks Blofeld down and evenadopts a disguise as he infiltrates his arch-enemy’s Alpine hideaway,Piz Gloria.
Where this film is unique, however, is in the level ofemotion it invests in OO7’s relationships with others. We see thisearly in the film when Bond quarrels with M and submits hisresignation, a sequence which really brings out the affection whichboth M and Moneypenny have for him, but which M especially prefers tokeep concealed.
OHMSS sees Bond fall genuinely inlove for the first and only time, and personally I found the film’sromantic scenes both tender and touching, particularly for being sounexpected in a Bond film. The casting of Diana Rigg as Tracy helpsimmeasurably in making us believe in this romance, as she is a rareexample of a proper actress taking on the role of a Bond girl, and herdynamic, spirited performance makes it easy to see why Bond would fallfor her and marry her. There is no shortage of greataction either, the highlights being a tense and gripping ski chase andan equally thrilling bobsleigh pursuit. Telly Savalas makes for a veryeffective Blofeld, understated and sinister, and his Rosa Klebb-likehenchwoman Irma Bunt is played with relish by Ilse Steppat.
There arealso echoes of FRWL in the character of Draco, Tracy’s father, who is acharismatic Bond ally in the style of Kerim Bey. Special mention shouldbe given to John Barry, who produced his greatest Bond soundtrack forOHMSS. The first ofthese is that the film is too long, primarily because the centralsection, where Bond infiltrates Piz Gloria in disguise, is dragged outfor far longer than was necessary. I must admit also that, good as Lazenby is, I dowish Connery had agreed to make this film, because with him on board,and a little more editing, I think it could have been the best Bondever, even beating FRWL.
As it is, OHMSS is still a very strong film,its bold deviations from the Bond formula paying off handsomely. But you call tell thatunderneath his mack daddy act he was all business, and violent businessindeed.Everything about this movie had a cool aura to it. The stunt sceneswere amazing (for it’s era) and the cinematography was beautifullyshot. Too bad George Lazenbywas demoted to B-Movie hell after this flick (at least he got a threepicture deal with Golden Harvest where he made three classic actionfilms).I have to give this movie a high recommendation. It certainly delivers on thepromise of sexual innuendo and lots of provocatively dressed women, butit's a different sort of Bond in that it seems to be morestraight-faced and harsh, culminating in what is probably the saddestBond ending. He's nowherenear as good as Connery, of course, but I thought that other than thescenes where he tried to seriously emote, he carried the film with hischarisma and physical presence. Thenlast year, I saw a widescreen tape version on sale and decided to buy it.When I finished watching it I was sorry I had ignored it for so long. I thought Lazenby did a good job as Bond, and Savalas turned inequally good work as Bond’s nemesis. The romance is probably the bestpart, at the best of Bond tradition, mainly thanks to Diana Rigg’sinspired performance as Tracy, perfectly depicting an emotionallyunbalanced, yet appealing and glamorous, woman. Telly Savales played Blofeld very good but his Blofeldwas much different that the late great Donald Plesence’s Blofeld.
