Product Description

James Bond has been marked for death, and he’ll need all his lethal instincts and seductive charm to survive in this action-packed adventure! Roger Moore returns as Agent 007 and faces off in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with assassin Francisco Scaramanga (Christopher Lee). Featuring a wild automobile chase through Bangkok and Bond’s stunning confrontation with an entire martial arts school, The Man With the Golden Gun delivers pull-out-the-stops excitement!

From Amazon.co.uk

The British spy with a licence 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 Hervé Villechaize). Britt Ekland does her best as an embarrassingly inept Bond girl, 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. Clifton James, the redneck sheriff from Live and Let Die, makes an ill-advised appearance as a racist tourist. He 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 mid-air corkscrew jump. Bond and company are let down by a lazy script, but Moore balances the overplayed humour with a steely performance and Lee's charm and enthusiasm makes Scaramanga a cool, deadly, and thoroughly enchanting adversary. --Sean Axmaker, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
The Man With the Golden Gun was producer Harry Saltzman's last hurrah before selling out his share in the Bond series to United Artists to ensure the maximum inconvenience to his detested partner Cubby Broccoli. It's certainly not premium Bond: at times it threatens to turn into an episode of The Avengers, what with Scaramanga's funhouse, his midget servant Nick Nack, its human statues or the off-kilter angles of MI6's Hong Kong HQ located in the rusting wreck of the Queen Elizabeth, not to mention Roger Moore's more Steed-like Bond. Although there are hints of the lows to come in Moore's tenure - Bond being saved by a pair of schoolgirls or defeating a villain by pretending to be a tailor's dummy - this is still recognisable an old-school Bond film, with thankfully few gadgets, although it's disappointing that the producers provide Scaramanga with an island lair and super-weapon to give Bond something to blow up at the end (a rather half-hearted effort to be sure: instead of a private army, Scaramanga simply has Herve Villachaize and a maintenance man). Britt Ekland's irritating `typical silly woman' comic relief was a bit hard to take in 1974 and gets worse with each passing year, but Christopher Lee's Scaramanga is one of the more interesting Bond villains, not least because of his imagined empathy with his prey - he regards himself as Bond's moral and professional equal, the kind of pathological snobbery Fleming's books were full of but the films increasingly abandoned.Read more ›

I'll start by making one thing clear: this definitely still isn't the best Bond film, but after all the negative things I've read about it from critics and Bond fans alike, I was quite surprised at how great I thought it was when I finally watched it.

The first thing about this film that sets it apart from most of the others, or to begin with at least, is how unconventional the plot is for a Bond film; after the usual pre-credits sequence, the story begins with 007 being called into M's office with a warning that he has been targeted by the notorious assassin, the titular 'Man with the Golden Gun', aka Francisco Scaramanga. Realising that the only thing that can give him the advantage over such a renowned killer is to "find him first", Bond sets out to track down the assassin before said assassin can get the drop on him.

Many of the scenarios in this film are some of the most hilariously over-the-top of the lot, such as a fight scene in a karate school and a car chase culminating in the villain's vehicle donning wings and flying off into the horizon, but this is one of few Bond films where the story actually had me gripped. This is largely due to Christopher Lee's performance as Scaramanga, who comes across as a sort of 'anti-Bond' in his blend between sophistication and outright ruthlessness, making him a genuinely chilling antagonist.

The only real negative is the film's 'Bond girl', Mary Goodnight. Though she doesn't really show up until a fair way through the film, once she eventually does she quickly establishes herself as one of the worst Bond girls of the lot.
