4.0 out of 5 stars Just keeping the British end up..., 9 Dec. 2005
This review is from: The Spy Who Loved Me (Special Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
With the spy who loved me you are in for a typical James Bond treat - plenty of action, plenty of one-liners and plenty of girls.
The film does very well to keep itself feeling fresh, and interesting, because a lot of its plot points and even its action set pieces are all something we've already seen in the previous Bond films. Even so, the spy who loved me is so fast paced, and filled with so much charm, energy and fun, you don't really mind it being a rehash.
The plot is pointless, about some baddies wanting to capture nuclear missles by stealing submarines, but who watches Bond for the plot? The action scenes are breath-taking, especially a skiing pre-credits sequence, with some stunning stunts.
Roger Moore is on fine form. He can keep such a straight face during some of the geniunely funny one-liners. They don't make you groan, rather just make you enjoy the action more. He's also very believable as the action man Bond should be.
Unfortunately, Stromberg, the villain of the movie, although played well, is not a very evil character, and the film suffers slightly because of that. Still, at least we have the introduction of Jaws, the metal teethed goon who is super strong, and provides the most memorable parts of the film.
The Spy Who Loved Me also contains the most recognisable Bond car after the ASton Martin DB5 - the Lotus which can turn into an underwater submersible. Fantastic!
Extras are the usual Bond fare - excellent documentary, and a wonderful featurette on the production designer. Trailers also included.
