Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Dr. No is the first James Bond 007 movie, from 1962. It contains fighting, shooting, and killing, with a little blood shown. It's relatively tame today, but was arguably among the more violent movies made in 1962. Though Bond is a hero, striving to solve problems and protect the world from evil, his methods are questionable. He has a "license to kill," he seduces several women (no nudity shown), drinks, smokes cigarettes, gambles, and generally bosses people around. Despite all this, he projects an image of cool confidence, and he has fascinated generations of action movie fans. Since the series is still ongoing 50 years later, teens will be interested in going back to see earlier entries.

Sexual Content

Bond seduces and sleeps with more than one woman, without repercussions. There's kissing, scantily clad women, and sexual innuendo.

Violence

Several characters are shot and killed. Some blood is shown, but not much. There's also a good deal of fighting. A character commits suicide. There's a flaming car crash. One character is burned alive, though it is not graphically depicted.

Language

"Hell" is used more than once, and "damn" is heard once.

Social Behavior

Bond is a force for good, working to solve problems and protect the world from evil criminals, but he specifically works for the British government and his loyalty is to them. His methods are also questionable.

Consumerism

A bottle of Smirnoff vodka is shown, and we see several crates of Red Stripe beer (in Jamaica).

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Bond is shown smoking a cigarette the first time he appears on camera (he makes it look cool). Many characters smoke in a background, casual way. Bond drinks his trademark vodka martini, and a secondary character is shown drinking a little too much rum. There are many other scenes of characters drinking socially.
