2.35:1 widescreen 16:9 version
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 WalkerSee all Product description

After the high (space) camp of Moonraker, the producers wisely decided to bring Bond back to Earth with, For Your Eyes Only.
This is one of my favourites of the Bond series. A really good spy story with minimal gadgets. A fantastic car chase (with Bond amusingly in a 2CV) and an exhilarating ski chase sequence that's right up there with any of those in OHMSS. Plus, a breathtaking, edge of your seat rock climb.
Film ratio is 2.35:1. Audio is DD 5.1. Both picture & sound are excellent.
The extras disc has a plethora of documentaries, featurettes, trailers, tv spots, photo gallery and more, much more... Roger Moore!
Watch and enjoy.
