2017 - BECOMING BOND, a film about a man who made a bad decision

The life story of George Lazenby the one film James Bond who probably gets a footnote in film history as the man who turned down the James Bond film series after one film.  Probably one of the worst decisions made in the history of film production.

Lazenby narrates his life story and comes off as an amusing fellow as he relates his life story to the camera which is intercut with a series of recreations of his life.  Is it all true?  Who knows but it is pretty entertaining.   

Is this an important film?  Not really but it is kind of fun.  Did Lazenby make the worst career decision of his career?  Probably, but he comes off as a guy who learned to live with his life choice.

Worth a look.

92 minutes.
