Perhaps the most inconsistent of all James Bond pictures, with some outstanding moments and sequences sitting quite blithely next to absolute rancidity.

the first film that actually allowed Moore to get into the role without having to live up to Connery

A diverting but typically silly Roger Moore entry in the Bond canon. [Blu-ray]

Roger Moore's Bond has got a rough deal over the year, but whilst this takes itself a little too lightly it has a lot going for it.

It's all gaudily good, right down to Hervé Villechaize(!), bikini-clad Britt Ekland, and the inimitable Clifton James as the vacationing Sheriff J.W. Pepper.

Bond versus Herve and Dracula. How can such a thing possibly be disliked?

Roger Moore's second outing as James Bond is glossy, but fires blanks.

This one has all the right ingredients to be a great Bond flick, I mean Christopher Lee is the main villain! I don't exactly know how they screwed this up, but they did.

This is Bond by numbers: the fast cars, fast boats and fast women are all here, but there's little imagination at work.

Why did a tale that could've been a bit ragged - and a nice stretch for Moore - become simply a so-so romp? Chalk it up to the franchise's nervous need to capitalize on other genres' zeitgeist -first, blaxploitation, and here, martial arts.
