Genre: Action, Adventure and Thriller
Conclusion: 3/5
This is number 12 in the Bond franchise. One of the best James Bond films. This is John Glen’s first James Bond film that he has directed. The pre-credits sequence in this film was inspired when John Glen saw a boy playing with a remote-control car at Pinewood Studios. As much as I enjoyed this film and found it thoroughly entertaining.
I did find that there was nothing new that we hadn’t already seen from previous Bond movies. I enjoyed all the chases and thought they were all really well done. I did get the feeling that Roger Moore enjoyed making this film although I felt that making this Bond film, he wasn’t that spritely or that young anymore. I did find the villains and the characters in this film very believable and not to be cartoon figures like they have been in the past. Cassandra Harris who plays Countess Lisl was, at the time of filming, married to future Bond actor Pierce Brosnan. I love Charles Dance’s cameo in this film!!
