Product Description

Product Description

Roger Moore reprises the role of James Bond in the 12th instalment of the franchise. When the activating button for a nuclear launch is lost at sea, it is up to Bond to retrieve it before it falls into the wrong hands.

From Amazon.co.uk

After the lavish, effects-heavy splash of Moonraker, the twelfth Bond film and the seventh with Roger Moore concentrates more on core car-chase-and-crumpet values, evoking an almost retro feel that harks back to the first pressings of the Bond vintage in the 1960s. Starting to look a little wrinkly around the edges by this point, Roger Moore toughens his usually smarmy act up here with a gratuitous bit of killing, casually kicking a baddie and his car over a precipice, reviving memories of the ruthless streak with which Sean Connery made his name. Good old-fashioned Cold War politics lie at the heart of the plot, concerning a weapons system hijacked in the Mediterranean Bond must rescue. He's assisted by the exquisite Carole Bouquet, the only actress in history who can claim to have been both a 'Bond girl' and the star of a Luis Buñuel movie (That Obscure Object of Desire). Sadly, this is the first film to lack Bernard Lee's spymaster M, the actor having died beforehand, although British comedienne Janet Brown is on hand for an amusing Margaret Thatcher impersonation. --Leslie Felperin

On the DVD: The first audio commentary here is another one of those edited selections of interviews with sundry cast and crew members, tied together by an over-earnest host. Producer Michael G Wilson and others provide a somewhat more illuminating second commentary track. Once again the best extra feature is the "making of" documentary, which gives an almost scene-by-scene breakdown of the movie. The animated storyboard sequences will appeal to filmmaking aficionados. Avoid, if at all possible, the Sheena Easton video of arguably the most forgettable Bond song of all time (both song and score were perpetrated by series newcomer Bill Conti, not the estimable John Barry). --Mark Walker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

AKA, the one where Moore's Bond kills in cold blood.

After the daft Moonraker there was a distinct effort to make this film more gritty. Moore's game of brinkmanship with the producers had started here (never committing to a new Bond flim until the last moment) which leaves the opening scenes (Bond visits his dead wife's grave) originally intended to introduce a new Bond. He also finally kills off Blofeld (though his name is never mentioned).

There are more chases and stunts in this Bond than most of the other films, or so it seems, and almost all are tense and exciting. Pick of the bunch are the exciting bobsled run and climbing sequences.

Moore IS starting to show his age here, and I could have done without the superfluous storyline of Bibi Dahl seducing Bond (thankfully he respectfully declines her advances) but I would still say that this is perhaps Moore's most impressive individual performance as Bond.

The real negative in the film is Julian Glover's Kristatos. A fine actor he may be, but he lacks the nasty over-the-top villainy of the best Bond bad guys. Still Carole Bouquet and Topol make memorable Bond allies and all in all the film is a thrill-a-minute wonder.

Moore means more intrigue, excitement and thrilling plot lines in For Your Eyes Only, a return to form for the Ian Fleming-esque spy action and drama.

Set in lush mountain ranges, dangerous ocean depths and winding ski slopes, this enjoyable and simple story of revenge and competing world powers entangle Bond in a vicious race against time across the globe to complete his mission of recovering the ATAC targeting computer system from a sunken British Naval ship before his plotting enemies do.

Fast cars, guns and gadgets drive Bond across in this more humane story which never lets up to the chilling climx atop a mountain peak!

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 3 Nov. 2008
Format: DVD
For Your Eyes Only is showing its age a bit now. At the time a hugely welcome return to basics after the leaden FX spectacle of Moonraker (the second remake of You Only Live Twice in a row for the series), it still holds up as one of the best of Roger Moore's Bonds, but its faults are much more apparent than they once were. Among them is the tendency to undercut everything with unfunny little jokes (a scoreboard keeping count of thugs Bond knocks out, Bond giving a bemused royal wave to pursuing thugs, and a horrendous cameo from a Maggie Thatcher lookalike in the end), some flat studio work (no disguising the fact that the mountaintop Greek monastery is just a Pinewood set), a dated Bill Conti score and a comic relief nympho nymphet Lynn Holly Johnson constantly throwing herself at a disinterested Bond. Luckily, the pluses more than compensate - a stronger plot than usual for the Moore efforts, at least one cold-blooded murder, and a very welcome absence of gadgets until the postscript that ensures that Bond has to extricate himself with his own wits in some pretty good setpieces. Best among them is a mountaineering sequence where he uses his bootlaces - not steel bootlaces, just common bootlaces - to save himself in an old mountaineers trick.

Incidentally, with Blofeld still sporting the neck brace he wore at the end of OHMSS, and with the film beginning at Tracey Bond's graveside it's tempting to think of the pre-title sequence as a way of making amends for the jokey way Bond's nemesis was disposed of in Diamonds Are Forever were the following sequence not the proud possessor of the most surreal line in the entire Bond series, the infamous "I'll buy you a delicatessen - in stainless steel!

This was Roger Moore's 5th Bond film and I have always considered it to be one of his best. It was a breath of fresh air and brought the Bond films back to basics, after the appalling Moonraker that came before it. It was also nice to see a tougher Bond film again and to see him less reliant on gadgets. I have always enjoyed this much more than Octopussy and A View To A Kill. It is Moore's second best Bond film, in my opinion, after The Spy Who Loved Me. However, there are some aspects of this film that really bug me. The villain, played by Julian Glover, has to be one of the least menacing and physically threatening of all of the Bond baddies and the other minor villains in the film aren't much better. Secondly, the music in this film is absolutely awful and doesn't fit the tone of the film at all. It was written by Bill Conti, who I had not heard of before, but I have since learned that he scored some of the Rocky films. It made me yearn for the rousing music of John Barry like never before. However, the title song, performed by Scottish singer Sheena Easton is one of the best Bond themes in the whole series, in my opinion. The action sequences in the film are also very well filmed, especially the helicopter scene and the rock-climbing scene near the end of the film. So, despite my qualms, I do like this film a lot and it is one that I watch quite often. Three stars from me, for this flawed, but still enjoyable Bond film.

The worst excesses of the 70's fatuous Bond's are laid to rest in this superior Bond movie. All the Bonds are entertainment to a certain formula which is always entertaining to a degree.. but the producers decision to `come back down to Earth' after Moonraker pays off handsomely with a more adult feeling script and some genuine drama and subterfuge going on.
When a British spy trawler sinks suddenly, both sides of the Cold War set out to retrieve the coding device known as the ATAC. The first victims are the Havelock's, marine biologists who use their diving as a cover to retrieve the device from the wreck. Their daughter, Melina, sets out for revenge and this brings her into contact with Bond. Their journey takes them from Corfu to Greece, where Bond must find out who is his enemy - the sophisticated oil and shipping magnate Kristatos (Julian Glover), or Columbo (Topol), the smuggler.
It's a neat script, and executed in an able and unshowy manner by John Glen, more than capable of taking the hot seat after editing and second unit directing so many previous Bonds. A neat idea was in having Blofeld eliminated in the opening credit scene - one which introduces the idea of revenge, a theme for the movie, and gets the silliness out of the way, as if to make a fresh slate for the rest of the movie. Moore is, alas, starting to look a little paunchy and wrinkled - he very nearly did not come back for this movie, but was persuaded back for an undisclosed sum. His scenes with the young teenage skater are just a little uncomfortable to watch, with Moore in his 50's. Carole Bouquet is gorgeous and exotic - great Bond girl material. The only downside is that she and Moore never seem to generate any real chemistry - though the plot does not require too much of it anyway.
