Look, Ma, no plot and poor dialogue, and Moore really is old enough to be the uncle of those girls.

Let's face it: When you've seen one impregnable mountaintop fortress, you've seen 'em all.

Roger Moore has always been my least favorite James Bond, and For Your Eyes Only is possibly the worst of Moore's Bond films.

Sea and ski with 1981's Bond in an average outing.

It's the only Bond film where M didn't appear.

Moore is merely the best-oiled cog in this perpetual motion machine.

How one misses Goldfinger and the early Bond films in which the gadgets had more style and imagination.

No. 12 in the phenomenally durable James Bond series. For Your Eyes Only is undeniably easy on the eyes. Maybe too easy to prevent the mind from wandering and the lids from drooping.

By the end of the '80s, Bond would be viewed as something of a relic, but at least the decade opened with an enjoyable outing.

This is the closest Moore ever came to the world weary, battle hardened Bond of the books.

This 12th entry in the 007 series provides no real surprises, with the exception perhaps of Roger Moore, who gets the chance to show a little more grit than usual.

One of Moore's best turns as 007.

Gone are the big gadgets and huge set pieces. What we get instead are some decent car chases, fist fights, and practical stunts. The result is a pretty satisfying Bond entry.

This is the one of the better stripped down Bond films. It's not flashy, the villains are grounded and Moore dials his take on 007 down significantly.
