From the opening bomb blast outside a steamy nightclub to a last-minute escape from the president’s personal jet, James Bond’s third screen adventure is an exhilarating, pulse-pounding thrill ride! Sean Connery returns as Agent 007 and faces off with a maniacal villain bent on destroying all the gold in Fort Knox — and obliterating the world economy! Goldfinger is “the best…of all the Bonds” (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times)!

In scene after scene Director Guy Hamilton has contrived some hilariously horrible sight gags.
There's not the least sign of staleness in this third sample of the Bond 007 formula.
This 1964 entry is the most enjoyable of the James Bond thrillers starring Sean Connery -- perhaps because it's the most comic and cartoony in look as well as conception.
Presented here in a newly restored digital print, it should look especially swish on the big screen.
If it is not a great film, it is a great entertainment, and contains all the elements of the Bond formula that would work again and again.
Although more gimmicky than From Russia with Love, this film is equally as entertaining.
