James Bond is back and investigates the mid-air theft of a space shuttle but its never that simple as he also discovers a plot to commit global genocide.
As I have gotten further into the Bondathon it has become more difficult and in all honesty didn’t have high hopes for this film (and that was proven to be a wise decision). I think it is a very weak film in all ways to be completely honest. Possibly the worst from Moore? I don’t know why but the space side of it just didn’t get me engaged at all and I felt that it was just that step too far.
I am actually really struggling to put this review together as did not feel engaged in the film at all and if I wasn’t determined to watch all of the films I might have just turned it off. I know that is making it sound very bad but it is the poorest I have seen (so far, I’m waiting for Brosnan as heard bad things). So I hope someone can confirm that this one is the poorest of the films? Then at least I can find the power to continue watching? Please!!!
I was pleased to see that Jaws was back in this one, although it created a little bit of a problem in the sense that we knew what to expect from the character so didn’t have the edge that made him so great in The Spy Who Loved Me. That didn’t stop a rather impressive fight scene on the cable car, I think that was probably my favourite part of this film. I thought it had a good level of suspense and was exciting to watch it unfold.
I just don’t feel like this film had the best one liners either and don’t remember laughing or smiling at many moments from 007. I am hoping that Moore can pick it up again in the next two films I have to watch. I will keep going I promise! 007 will not defeat me.
