Roger Moore makes his 007 debut, replacing Sean Connery as Britain's most celebrated secret agent. In the eighth instalment of the franchise, Bond is tasked with cracking a voodoo-controlled drug smuggling racket in the Caribbean, and sets about the task with his customary verve, finding time for speedboat chases and crocodile encounters along the way. Admirable support is offered by Clifton James, as an irate Southern Sheriff, and Jane Seymour, as tarot expert Solitaire but they face a formidable foe in drugs baron Kananga (Yaphet Kotto).
Roger Moore was introduced as James Bond in this 1973 action movie featuring secret agent 007. More self-consciously suave and formal than predecessor Sean Connery, he immediately re-established Bond as an uncomplicated and wooden fellow for the feel-good 70s. Live and let Die also marks a deviation from the more character-driven stories of the Connery years, a deliberate shift to plastic action (multiple chases, bravura stunts) that made the franchise more of a comic book or machine. If that's not depressing enough, there's even a good British director on board, Guy Hamilton (Force 10 from Navarone). The story finds Bond taking on an international drug dealer (Yaphet Kotto), and while that may be superficially relevant, it isn't exactly the same as fighting supervillains on the order of Goldfinger. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The sound however seems to be improving as I move through the series (apart from a little dip for From Russia With Love), and for the first time Live and Let Die has a properly working surround treatment to my ears. There is real activity in the LF channel, with explosions now having real impact, and there is some decent use of the rear speakers as well, with only a few occasions sounding a little contrived (the birdsong in the Bayou scene for example). Effects steering is also very believable. The score is delivered beautifully, with plenty of audible detail particularly in the percussion, it also swells nicely into the rears to envelope you as you watch. I did notice however that in a couple of scenes the music drops into mono (the boat race just before the disruption of the wedding for example), this is pretty noticeable and sounds a little strange.
I didn't experience the worryingly long loading times I had with the earlier Bond films, which is an improvement. The extras appear to be identical to the Ultimate Editions, although the major docs have been bumped to HD which is nice.
The film's strongest points are probably the score and the henchmen. The score was composed by Beatles producer George Martin and really gives the film an interesting. The title song is used as the main action theme and Martin also composed some other good themes which appear regularly in the score. As much as I am a fan of John Barry, I'm not convinced that he could have done a better job than Martin on this film. In fact, I can barely imagine the picture with a more traditional Barry score.
The villain's henchmen are excellent. Tee Hee, a tall sadist armed with a mechanical hook. Baron Samedi, a voodoo priest with a wonderful sadistic laugh. Whisper, an overweight, almost mute henchman. The villain himself is Dr. Kananga, a politician who also operates as a Harlem gangster.Read more ›
Jane Seymour I am forever grateful for 'the awakening' =)
It also is the greatest bond theme ever produced.
