This is the fourth outing for Roger Moore as 007. What I enjoyed about this Bond was all the good quality visual effects. With all the visual effects that they have used though I could argue and say that they have tried too hard for this film and it almost feels like a good quality Star Wars film. I personally enjoyed this film but I know at the time of its release it didn’t have good reviews from film critics. I enjoyed all the filming locations especially London and Venice. This is a very similar story to “The Spy Who Loved Me” (1977) as it involves a vehicle being stolen, a pre-title sequence involving aerial stunts, and also the villain’s plan to wipe out humanity to start a new race. This is Bernard Lee’s final appearance as M. Apparently, Kim Basinger was offered a role in this film but turned it down. Kate Bush was originally offered to sing the theme, but turned it down.
