New York Times:
... what they give us in Goldfinger is an excess of-science-fiction fun, a mess of mechanical melodrama and a minimum of bedroom farce.
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.
Although more gimmicky than From Russia with Love, this film is equally as entertaining.
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.
A bit much? Yes, but it's meant to be. Like Doctor No and From Russia with Love, the two previous Bond bombshells, this picture is a thriller exuberantly travestied.
Presented here in a newly restored digital print, it should look especially swish on the big screen.
There's not the least sign of staleness in this third sample of the Bond 007 formula.
