Product description

Product Description

The 13th Bond adventure, again starring Roger Moore, places 007 up against the glamorous Octopussy (Maud Adams) and a bunch of evil Soviets who have plans to plunder Tsarist treasures and create a nuclear explosion in a German NATO base.

From Amazon.co.uk

Roger Moore was nearing the end of his reign as James Bond when he made Octopussy, and he looks a little worn out. But the movie itself infuses some new blood into the old franchise, with a frisky pace and a pair of sturdy villains. Maud Adams--who'd also been in The Man with the Golden Gun--plays the improbably named Octopussy, while old smoothie Louis Jourdan is her crafty partner in crime. There's an island populated only by women, as well as a fantastic sequence with a hand-to-hand fight on a plane--and on top of a plane. The film even has an extra emotional punch, since this time 007 is not only following the orders of Her Majesty's Secret Service, but he is also exacting a personal revenge: a fellow double-0 agent has been killed. Two Bond films were actually released in 1983 within a few months of each other, as Octopussy was followed by Sean Connery's comeback in Never Say Never Again. The success of both pictures proved that there was still plenty of mileage left in the old licence to kill, though Moore had one more workout--A View to a Kill--before hanging it up. And that title? The franchise had already used up the titles to Ian Fleming's novels, so Octopussy was taken from a lesser-known Fleming short story. --Robert Horton, Amazon.com

On the DVD: The high standard of these 007 discs is maintained here, with another extra-packed selection. The "Inside Octopussy" documentary details the making of the movie, which faced competition from Sean Connery's Never Say Never Again, as well as being handicapped by a potentially risible title. The initial story was developed by George Macdonald Fraser, author of the "Flashman" books, whose knowledge of Indian history and locales proved invaluable. Roger Moore prevaricated about signing on as Bond, so American James Brolin was screen-tested instead. The movie also produced the worst accident of the series while filming the train sequence and the stuntman involved was hospitalised for six months. Director John Glen provides a solo commentary that reveals a wealth of technical detail and also that this is one of his favourite Bond movies. Rita Coolidge performs "All Time High", and there are also some storyboard sequences and trailers. --Mark Walker --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

A real corker of a title. It's a shame the film is one of the more pedestrian of Roger Moore's tenure as 007. Like several Bond films, nuclear warheads are to be used to blackmail the 'powers' into submission, in this instance to... well, I won't spoil it. And, frankly, who cares? There's some sinister clowning around at the circus, dodgy dealings with Fabergé eggs, and an Indian angle. But it all feels a little lame and cobbled together. Nevertheless, Moore remains suavely and amusingly charming, and there's enough action, exotic locations, and typical 'old fashioned' Bond silliness to keep this just the right side of entertaining. Not a classic. But then very few Bond movies really are.

What a great film this is. The wonderful sashaying title song by Rita Coolidge leads us into a twisting plot involving a travelling circus, a knife-throwing sinister pair of twins, a scimitar-weilding fierce Sikh bodyguard, a crazed Soviet general hellbent on WW3, and a nuclear bomb showdown at Checkpoint Charlie between West and East Germany.
Brilliant from start to finish, and great fun for kids too. Roger Moore in his usual element, Maud Adams is stunning once again and Louis Jordan brings all his experience into making the villainous Afghan prince Kamal Khan as menacing as any of Bond's adversaries.

These new editions have been digitally restored, and they look better than they ever have. Every frame has been cleaned up from the original film reel and not only that but there's another disc of behind the scenes footage and interviews that are unmissable for any Bond fan.

Great movie and excellent quality I love the way they have digitally re-mastered on to a DVD. I love all James bond movies and the print quality is just great, bearing in mind it was originally a non digital print. The sound is great too at 5.1 dolby surround. Overall it's a great product to own instead of those old video cassette players.

Many of Roger Moore's films as Bond suffer because of the lack of balance that they had between comedy (obviously Roger Moore's strong suit) and the gritty realism that the likes of 'From Russia With Love' provided. As such, if asked what Roger Moore Bond film was best, the results would almost certainly show either 'The Spy Who Loved Me' or 'For Your Eyes Only' as the best. The former for its light-hearted, comedic escapism, the other for it's more intense, cold war realism.
I enjoy both films, for both of these aspects, but I feel that 'Octopussy' is the first, and only film of Roger Moore's where a balance between the two was achieved.
The plot is sometimes criticised for being too complicated, but it really isn't. The principal character, Octopussy, runs a jewellery smuggling set-up from Russia to the west, within her circus. However her partner, Kamal Khan, is secretly in league with a Russian general who arranges for the cache of jewellery to be replaced with a nuclear bomb, which will detonate when the circus is in a US Air Force Base in West Berlin. The west will demand unilateral disarmament because they will think it was an American bomb which went off accidentally, leaving Russia free to invade without the threat of nuclear retaliation. This leads to a thrilling (if done before) countdown to the explosion as James Bond rushed to stop it.
What's not to love about this story? Ian Fleming is probably wishing he had come up with that from beyond the grave.

You have to remember the era this was recorded and that norms were different. For us living in 2017 it is quite sexist and racist - but that was how things were back then. If you can overlook that it is a very enjoyable romp with the late great Sir Roger Moore!
