      Moonraker Reviews

      Like the last Bond exercise, The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker hits its stride by being silly and spectacular.

      Full Review | Nov 16, 2023

      I wanted to love this film and to see something actually new and interesting, but instead, I got a boring and confusing plot that had me simply waiting for the runtime to get over.

      Moonraker is still basically good fun and I suppose that's all it's supposed to be.

      Moonraker has the same trappings as the earlier movies, but little of the spirit.

      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.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Dec 4, 2020

      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.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | Jul 16, 2020

      Unquestionably the nadir to the whole Bond series.

      Full Review | Original Score: 1/5 | Oct 31, 2019

      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]

      Full Review | Feb 8, 2018

      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.

      Full Review | Oct 6, 2015

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

      Thank God for MOONRAKER!

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4 | Oct 26, 2012

      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.

      Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5 | Oct 13, 2012

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