Live and Let Die Reviews

So-so '70s Bond entry has sex, drugs, action violence.

I can see how many people can be entertained by this ludicrous film, but not because it's good. It features an outstanding performance from Moore and has an enjoyably bad Blaxploitation thing going on here, but not much else.

Roger Moore's first 007 job is still top entertainment.

In the longest tenure of any James Bond performer, Roger Moore would certainly have higher highs and lower lows. And while it strays from Bond formula in ways good and bad, it's a fine introduction to a 007 more prone to crack wise than crack heads.

The first outright terrible Bond picture.

I know I probably shouldn't like Live and Let Die, but I do. This crackpot entry, the eighth, in the long-running James Bond series, is figuratively all over the map...[Blu-ray]

Guy Hamilton's direction lacks enthusiasm and pace, while even the art direction -- long the Bond films' real secret weapon -- seems to have fallen to a shrunken budget.

Moore acquits himself in a larger than life adventure peppered with enjoyably rotten gags and lots of playful action.

It can't quite muster an explosive third act to match previous jaunts, but Moore had got his feet under the table.

The comic book plot meanders through a series of hardware production numbers.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Less macho than Sean Connery's Bond, Moore's fastidiously dressed 007 survives by his wits and injects more humor into the proceedings.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

Setting aside an allright speedboat spectacular over land and water, the film is both perfunctory and predictable -- leaving the mind free to wander into the question of its overall taste. Or lack of it.

Two hours long and anti-climactic, but Bond fans won't be disappointed.

Theme song by Paul McCartney is best part, but this is also one of Moore's best Bonds.

Live and Let Die has been especially well photographed and edited, and it makes clever and extensive use of its good title song, by Paul and Linda McCartney.

Its cheerful racism is overcome by a grand sense of fun and some of Moore's best moments in the franchise.

It doesn't have the wit and it doesn't have the style of the best Bond movies.

Moore lacks 007 killer instinct & sex appeal.
