->''"Berkoff is a character actor who never really got the respect that he deserved. He made a great villain, if you couldn’t afford [=Malcolm McDowell=]. Nah, I kid – he’s great. Here he plays a '[[FakeRussian rogue Soviet general]] (''original'', I know), who realises that he’s in a terrible film. So the actor runs around, putting on invasion-themed powerpoints like an evil Al Gore and stressing random syllables because he’s evil! He yells about “un'''''REAL'''''is'''''TIC''''' policies!” and “at'''''TACK''''' strategies!” to the assembled heads of the Russian government with such passion that I found myself wondering how he orders lunch at the cafeteria. “I’ll have a cu'''''CUMB'''''er '''''SAN'''''dwich, pl'''''EASE!'''''”"''

->''"I shouldn’t condemn (Jeremy) Irons too much, because in truth he ends up providing most of the movie’s meager entertainment value. It’s obvious that early in the production, he realized that this was not going to be his finest hour no matter what he did, so he chose to indulge himself and turn his usual carefully-measured intensity into full-on scenery chewing. It’s fun to watch him cut loose and forget everything he ever learned about good acting, as we will see shortly."''

->''"My pet theory is that -- being foiled twice by Bond -- Blofeld has gone completely and utterly insane, thus explaining all the ridiculous campness of the film. He’s decided that having a vaguely realistic goal and a reasonable method of achieving it (if you call [[Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice a spaceship-eating machin]]e reasonable) just isn’t for him. And instead he’s going to go nuts. There’s also the possibility that Bond actually killed the real Blofeld at some point and the man who currently looks like Blofeld was the most mentally unstable of the doubles. Or he’s pretty much figured out that [[GenreSavvy Bond is always going to foil him]], and has decided to just go along for the ride (“I do enjoy our little visits, Mr. Bond,” he concedes at one point, acknowledging that the end result is never in his favour).
