    Untouchables and Hunt for Red October.

    I have to admit I haven't seen a lot of his movies.

    "I'm a Shpanyard."

    Just Cause was a fantastic, underrated film. I'd completely forgotten about it.

    Well this looks absurd.

    My viewing list is sorely lacking for Sean but I am willing to bet you are spot on here.

    Both of these were brilliant performances and shows that Sean was more than just a good looking action star.

    Generally very good. Here are some of the very good ones:

    The Hill
    Finding Forrester. A classic, in my opinion.
    Hunt for Red October

    Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong, but it seemed to me that this was a somewhat overlooked release in America.

    It seems that the movie did poorly at the box office in the US: Wikipedia says "it played at 176 theaters and grossed $7.2 million on a $17 million budget. However, it was popular in many parts of Europe and grossed over $77.2 million worldwide." I saw it back then at the theater and it was a truely amazing experience.

    Never Say Never Again ~ Ok, it's a Bond movie, but a unofficial Bond movie.

    Lucky you. I was too young...at least the blu ray is decent.

    He was realistic about his limitations. He was vindicated by Kevin Costner in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves- which Connery happens to appear.

    I’ve never understood why this fascinating and atmospheric murder mystery is not more widely acclaimed. Definitely an underrated masterpiece of filmmaking.

    Marnie, Molly Maguires, Robin and Marian, The Man Who Would Be King, The Name of the Rose, Tarzan's Greatest Adventure, Darby O'Gill and the Little People and Time Bandits are some of the Connery movies I've enjoyed. He had great and unlikely chemistry with Tippi Hedren in Marnie and Audrey Hepburn in Robin and Marian, and his voice sold Draco in Dragonheart.
    Zardoz and Untouchables are the only disappointing Connery movies that I recall.

    Sean made two Bond non-Bond sequels, NSNA and The Rock! They both rock!

    I have a soft spot for this one, if for no other reason than to watch Connery and Dustin Hoffman face off. Fun stuff.
