Diamonds are Forever is the first truly spectacular Bond film. ... No, I don't mean that. But it entertains me because it all comes across as this big drunken mess that got tossed in a blender set to liquify and there's something I kind of have to love about that. I certainly like it more than I like Thunderball, which I easily consider the weakest of all the Connery Bonds. Still, it's a testament to how utterly ridiculous this film is that it makes the first Moore film look tame by comparison.
