All that remains of the mood of the early films is the theme tune. And though Albert R. Broccoli, the producer, says that Bond goes on forever and never ages. the fact is that he is getting more juvenile with every film that's made.

What little plot there is to this movie is basically a rehash of The Spy Who Loved Me's script.

Too much of the budget is wasted on overblown spectacle, without enough attention being given to the basics.

007 goes Star Wars in this, the silliest of all Bond's adventures.

The "Bond In Space" angle is all we need to write Moonraker off as daft, but... the whole script is a messy disaster.

James Bond would have to go back to Earth in "For Your Eyes Only" because "Moonraker" is truly a stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder.

Bond meets Star Wars in one of the series' sillier outings.

The gadgets are up to the usual Bond standards, but fancy effects do not a movie make, and 007 is less satisfying floating around in space than when his feet are more or less firmly planted on the ground.

An ill-conceived and frankly quite silly Bond-meets-sci-fi experiment.

The space-age plot is spread dangerously thin, the fights all tend to slapstick, and the wanton destruction has become rather too predictable. But it's held together by likeable performances.
