A great film for those who are a fan of the era but ultimately will be a forgotten film in time.

Goldfinger is in many ways the first classic James Bond movie. All the tropes that have become synonymous with 007 originated here.

All the tropes that have become synonymous with 007 originated here. Unfortunately, as a result of this tropes being endlessly parodied and done to death by the frachinse, this doesn't hold up as well as Dr. No
(I haven't seen From Russia With Love yet).

While Dr. No is a much slower movie, it's also better shot, better paced, it has a cold blooded Bond and takes itself pretty seriously, kinda like Casino Royale would do decades later.
This movie on the other hand is very goofy. Not as goofy as some future installments, but still pretty goofy. Also, half of it takes place in Kentucky.

Also, Connery's Bond canonically hates The Beatles so **** him. Oh, and he basically raped **** Galore, so that's not good either.

With that said, this is still a good movie. The opening credits are great, Oddjob is a great henchman, the third act is a lot of fun and the "I expect you to die" line is so awesome that it more than makes the whole film worth watching.
Seriously, the entire rest of the movie could have been absolute garbage and I still would've given it a positive review just for that line.
