BOND: MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN, THE(1974)


Bond! James Bond!

Roger Moore returns as James Bond, and is excellent
as always! While not quite as good as the last one, this
is non-the-less still a very good movie! It has the great
Herve Villechaize(Zee Plane, Zee Plane!) in it! His boss
looks an amazingly lot like Ricardo Montalban(no
coincidence I'm sure!), the wonderful Christopher
Lee(Star Wars Episodes I, II, and III; Lord Of The Rings,
The Hobbit I, II, & III!!)! And though not the best of theme
songs, it is sung by one of the great female vocalists of
the sixties, Lulu(To Sir With Love)! A

A review from an editor at Amazon:

The British superspy with a license to kill takes on
his dark underworld double, a classy assassin who
kills with golden bullets at $1 million a hit. Roger
Moore, in his second outing as James Bond, meets
Christopher Lee's Scaramanga, one of the most
magnetic villains in the entire series, in this entertaining
but rather wan entry in the 007 sweepstakes. Bond's
globetrotting search takes him to Hong Kong, Bangkok,
and finally China, where Scaramanga turns his island
retreat into a twisted theme park for a deadly game
of wits between the gunmen, moderated by Scaramanga's
diminutive man Friday Nick Nack (Fantasy Island's Herve
Villechaize). Britt Ekland does her best as the most
embarrassingly inept Bond girl in 007 history, a clumsy,
dim agent named Mary Goodnight who looks fetching
in a bikini, while Maud Adams is Scaramanga's tough
but haunted lover and assistant (she returns to the series
as the title character in Octopussy). Clifton James, the
redneck sheriff from Live and Let Die, makes an
embarrassing and ill-advised appearance as a racist
tourist who briefly teams up with 007 in what is otherwise
the film's highlight, a high-energy chase through the
crowded streets of Bangkok that climaxes with a breathtaking
midair corkscrew jump. Bond and company are let down
by a lazy script, but Moore balances the overplayed humor
with a steely performance and Lee's charm and enthusiasm
makes Scaramanga a cool, deadly, and< thoroughly
enchanting adversary. --Sean Axmaker
