This is the 13th Bond instalment. In my view this is one of the weakest Bond films, although, this movie earned $187 million worldwide. Octopussy’s real name is Octavia Charlotte Smythe. It is somehow lacking in action and I can’t say much about the script. It is almost as if John Glen completely lost his way. The reason why this movie’s title doesn’t appear in the song is because nothing rhymed with it. If you are looking for a Bond film to watch with gadgets in, this is not the film to watch!
