Spymaker: The Secret Life of Ian Fleming (1990)



Reviews and Comments

Before he retired and wrote the famed James Bond novels, Ian Fleming actually was a spy. His life wasn't as adventuresome as that of his literary hero, of course, but he was involved in his share of intrigue. I'm frankly not sure how accurate this film is to the details of his life. Some of it is accurate and some of it is not; it's just a question of the proportion of each. Either way, this film is mediocre at best, most of it being fairly dull. Sean Connery's son, Jason Connery, plays Ian Fleming. Worth a look by Bond or spy story fans, but others should probably pass.
