Year: 1985
Genre: Action, Adventure and Thriller
Conclusion: 2/5
I have to say that I think that this film is one of the weakest James Bond films. This is Roger Moore’s seventh and final 007 film. I think the problem is that he turned 57 during the filming of this making him the oldest actor to play Bond. Apparently, he himself said that he was too old to play the part of Bond. Also, this is his least favourite Bond film out of the seven that he starred in. I found the whole storyline to this film unconvincing. Tanya Roberts plays the Bond girl but does what every Bond girl has to do. Priscilla Presley was offered a role in this movie but turned it down. There is nothing new and very little to get excited about.
