ONE OF THE BEST EVER BOND MOVIES OF ALL TIME !!,
This review is from: James Bond - The Spy Who Loved Me (Ultimate Edition 2 Disc Set) [DVD]  (DVD)
For me this has to be one of the best 007 movies of all time starring super cool Roger Moore as the legendary secret agent James Bond. This movie has it all from the gadget laden and minisub converting Lotus Esprit S1. To the lovely Bond Girls such as Agent Triple x Barbara Bach the theme by Carly Simon and Jaws. Industrialist and madman played by Kurt Yugens as Stromberg who want world domination through a nuclear war. He steals a British Nuclear sub and a Russian one which are taken inside a huge super tanker. Bond is drafted in to track down Stromberg with Triple x and chase around the world with Jaws in pursuit. Finally Strombergs underwater palace named 'Atlantis' is destroyed by a torpedo from the American sub.
There are many memorable sequences in this film such as Bonds escape from the KGB in Austria, to the Esprit coming out onto the beach , the attack by Jaws in the valley of the kings in egypt to Bond facing off Stromberg at the end of the movie. The extras are axtensive on this new issue and are a little better than the previous issue. A documentary charts the films troubled beginning to script changes and a the building of the huge soundstage at Pinewood. To the detailed events on how Colin Chapman managed to get the then new Lotus Esprit to take on a starring role in the film. I'm not sure I would buy this issue as I have the previous one but it's a must for the Bond fan.
