Live And Let Die (Special Editi
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 the Blu-ray edition.

Perhaps Roger Moore's best Bond film.
There's a great supporting cast which includes: David Hedison as CIA agent Felix Leiter and Clifton James as the politically incorrect Sheriff J. W. Pepper. A fantastic script, gorgeous women, beautiful locations and exciting set pieces. George Martin's score is also a highlight and is one of the finest in the series. What more could anyone ask of a Bond adventure?
The extras disc is brilliant as usual.
The film ratio is 1.85:1 and the audio is 5.1. Both are very good.
A must see for any Bond aficionado.
Jane Seymour I am forever grateful for 'the awakening' =)
It also is the greatest bond theme ever produced.
