One review

  • This Roger Moore Bond flick while not as good to me as “The Spy Who Loved Me” or “For Your Eyes Only” is still quite enjoyable. This Bond for some reason features more comedy than any other Bond flick except for “Casino Royale” which was more of a spoof. There are still great action sequences though. The highlight of this one is the action on the train and race to get to the nuclear bomb. Well I should say this movie starts out with Bond trying to find out why another 00 agent was killed and apparently had a forged peice of jewelery…this leads him to India which leads him to this circus which is really into smuggling and this leads to Germany and the above mentioned nuclear device. The villan is really good…Maud Adams is the title character and just let me say it…she was not the first Bond gal to be in two movies. There is a gal in Dr. No and she returns as the same character in From Russia with Love (I heard she was the only one on some special, but I knew differently). The finale isn’t to bad, but is kinda lame until the plane sequence.
