‘Dr. No’ Movie Summary
Bond befriends a boater named Quarrel after a rough introduction, and the two of them pursue the mystery together with the help of a CIA man named Felix Leiter. It seems American rockets are being jammed by a mysterious source that the CIA has traced to Jamaica. But a mysterious figure named Dr. No on a nearby island is a good candidate.
Bond eventually investigates his island with Quarrel and finds a beautiful fisherbabe there named Honey Ryder. When they’re attacked, Bond realizes he has no choice but to penetrate deeper into the island and put a stop to the villain. Quarrel is killed and Bond and Honey are taken captive.
Dr. No reveals that he’s part of a secret organization without national ties and with limitless resources, SPECTRE. SPECTRE wants what all true villains want, world domination. When Bond refuses to join them, Dr. No is disappointed and instead orders Bond imprisoned. Bond escapes prison, foils Dr. No’s plans for world domination, and bags Honey. All in a day’s work.
