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

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.

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]

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.

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

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.
