I saw this movie right after a ski trip with my family and loved it.

Too much violence

Might feature the best Bond girl so far

While this movie is still as suggestive as other Bond films (there's kissing and fondling, and shadowy female nudity), I really liked this movie because of the way the filmmakers handled the story of Tracy di Vincenzo, though I think the ending could've been handled better. The violence is also intense: there's hand-to-hand combat, shootings (one with some blood), car crashes, and one scene involves a snowplowing machine. If you're a fan of Bond movies, or find enough enjoyment in them for two hours, I'd say OHMSS is a good film to check out, just don't show it to children or younger teens because it is not really appropriate for them. 7.8/10
