Yes, the final half-hour is utterly ridiculous, but the earthbound portion has much to recommend it.

Vintage Bond has violence, innuendo, sexism, and peril.

Frequently entertaining and grandiloquent in equal measure, Moonraker's overblown excess is a total joy.

For the majority of the time, Bond and Goodhead seem quite pleased with their skills - and face very little serious adversity, even when regularly cornered by Jaws.

Bond in space - that is all.

Unquestionably the nadir to the whole Bond series.

Upon reflection, I think I like it, purely as a film judged on its own merits, rather than judging it with the expectation of what film series its in...

... the original scheme has been scrupulously respected... [Full review in Spanish]

The predictability of Moonraker is part of the pleasure. Like most Bond adventures, Moonraker is so overstated that it is camp, and so preposterous that it's fun.

It's easy to see why 007 purists would loathe it, yet somehow 'Moonraker's' special brand of absurdity makes for one strangely entertaining Bond adventure.

Moonraker, the newest James Bond spectacle, is a cheerful, splashy entertainment. The curators of the Bond museum do not surpass themselves with this exhibition, the 11th in the series, but they haven't fallen down on the job either.

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.

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

The series' spectacular photography, gimmickry, verve and wry wit are still abundant.

Thank God for MOONRAKER!

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.

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

Primo kids' stuff, but under-satisfying for adults. [Blu-ray]

Ludicrous but enjoyable hooey.

One of the silliest and worse ones in the series.
