Review

Rating: 2 out of 5.

Roger Moore stars as 007 for the seventh and final time in this below-average Bond movie. His smoothness is now a bit of a cliché, but there's still some action and excitement to be had. Christopher Walken and his accomplice, girlfriend Grace Jones, are pretty scary as the baddies, but you don't get the impression that they're particularly evil. Patrick Macnee, of TV's The Avengers fame, fares a lot better as Bond's right-hand man, and Tanya Roberts does what Bond girls do pretty well. But the plot doesn't really convince, perhaps because we've seen it or something similar so many times before.
