Product Description

Product Description

Lewis Gilbert directs the eleventh instalment of the James Bond franchise. When a space shuttle goes missing during a test flight, James Bond (Roger Moore) is the man who must track it down. His investigations take him to Venice, Rio de Janeiro and finally into outer space where he uncovers a ruthless plot to wipe out the human race and replace it with genetically engineered humanoids.

From Amazon.co.uk

This was the first James Bond adventure produced after the success of Star Wars, so it jumped on the sci-fi bandwagon by combining the suave appeal of Agent 007 (once again played by Roger Moore) with enough high-tech hardware and special effects to make Luke Skywalker want to join Her Majesty's Secret Service. After the razzle-dazzle of The Spy Who Loved Me, this attempt to latch onto a trend proved to be a case of overkill, even though it brought back the steel-toothed villain Jaws (Richard Kiel) and scored a major hit at the box office. This time Bond is up against a criminal industrialist named Drax (Michel Lonsdale) who wants to control the world from his orbiting space station. In keeping with his well-groomed style, Bond thwarts this maniacal Neo-Hitler's scheme with the help of a beautiful, sleek-figured scientist (played by Lois Chiles with all the vitality of a department-store mannequin). There's a grand-scale climax involving space shuttles and ray guns, but despite the film's popular success, this is one Bond adventure that never quite gets off the launching pad. It's as if the caretakers of the James Bond franchise had forgotten that it's Bond--and not a barrage of gizmos and gadgets (including a land-worthy Venetian gondola)--that fuels the series' success. Despite Moore's passive performance (which Pauline Kael described as "like an office manager who is turning into dead wood but hanging on to collect his pension"), Moonraker had no problem attracting an appreciative audience, and there are even a few renegade Bond-philes who consider it one of their favourites. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I'll begin with saying this has always been one of my personal favourites from the golden era of Bond movies - the 70s. This film is Roger Moore, the greatest Bond IMO, at his peak and he plays him with the same charm and wit we came to expect. However, this movie always seems to get a bad press, often named as the worst Bond ever, which I think is strange considering this is very similar in style to The Spy Who Loved Me, one of the most successful Bonds of all time. Both were directed by Lewis Gilbert, both feature the metal toothed henchman Jaws, both blend action with humour perfectly, and both have two very similar villains with a view to wiping out the human race, only difference being one has his lair in the sea and the other in space. Unfortunately this movie is panned for being a copy, but I don't believe this to be true as both films have their own unique qualities. I agree that Moonraker does appear to be far fetched in places, eg the laser battle, the gigantic space station that Drax had built, but, let's face it, far fetched is what you come to expect from most Bond films. There are some very good moments in the film. The film begins with Bond fighting for a parachute in mid air after being pushed out of a plane. There's a darker moment when Drax sends killer dogs to maul a girl to death after she gives infomation to Bond. Jaws is eventually hired to kill Bond, yet he doesn't outsmart him when he pursues Bond in a cable car, which makes way for the hilarious scene when Jaws falls in love! There's a great chase full of explosions when Bond is chased to Drax's base, a haven inhabited by beautiful women. It was a nice twist to see Jaws turn good and help Bond, and in his last scene, sharing a drink with his girlfriend, we hear him say his only ever words 'here's to us'.Read more ›

I love this Roger Moore Bond movie, it's perfect pulp matinee entertainment: crass, dumb, and great fun.

The collars are enormous, the dialogue as lightweight and wooden as balsa, i.e. perfect, the locations are exotic, the girls gorgeous, the gadgets range from the coolly preposterous to the real gone gonzo (a turbo-powered hovercraft gondola, fleets of space-shuttles, and an invisible space-station!), the villain's blackguardly plot perfectly dastardly (a 'flying stud-farm' where the evil Drax plans to conceive his 'new master race', is how Bond describes it!), the evil henchmen/women have ridiculous butt-hugging yellow outfits, and there are some fabulous stunts and set pieces.

You get everything from a skydiving punch up for a parachute, to a sword fight in a glass-museum in Venice, and we traverse - and even leave - the globe, as Bond ventures into the jungles and mountains of Brazil, with a spot of tourist-brochure carnival fun in Rio, before heading into outer space! Jaws turns good and pulls a terrific little Heidi-like dollybird with fab hooters (who, it turns out, is called Dolly!). And Q delivers the classic 'oo-er missus' line: 'I think he's attempting re-entry'.

A space shuttle is stolen enroute to London and M sends 007 out to apologise to the shuttle creator, billionaire Hugo Drax.

While visiting Drax's estate several attempts are made on Bond's life, making Drax himself the number one suspect. Bond meets Dr. Holly Goodhead, a NASA scientist who is also a CIA agent investigating Drax.

Their investigations lead Bond to discover a plot to murder the world's population so that Drax can repopulate the planet in his image.

The mission takes Bond all over the world, California, Brazil, the Amazon Jungle and, finally, to Drax's huge space-city over the Earth. Drax,

meanwhile, has hired a old friend of Bond to take care of any problems.....

It's ironic that Jaws makes another appearance in this movie, because is the movie where Moore and the creators really jumped the shark with Bond. I'm not saying its a bad film, I really enjoy watching it, it's just unbelievable that this movie is from the same franchise as From Russia With Love, and even Skyfall.

Moore once again is great as the worlds most famous secret agent, and while this is the film where he really starts to show his age, he and the rest of the cast and crew are clearly having a ball.

It's clearly cashing in on Star Wars, but unlike other copycats, this has a really good story, amazing concept, and pretty wonderful narrative. It's just that when the film goes daft, it gives us double taking pigeons and that gondola.

Action scenes are as good as expected, but this time, whenever Jaws is on screen, he doesn't feel as threatening as he should, because we know he's there because he was just so popular.

I think this 121 min REGION B/2 DVD must be the cheesiest 007 film Roger Moore has made. A space shuttle on loan to MI6 by Hugo Drax (Michael Lonsdale) is hijacked in mid air. Bond is sent to investigate Drax on the pretence of an official apology. Bond discovers that Drax hijacked the shuttle himself and stumbles upon a secret lab with fatal poisons. Drax plans to create a space colony to commit a global genocide to regenerate a perfect species. It was nice but sad to see the late Richard Kiel.
