Most of the time, though, For Your Eyes Only is a slick entertainment.

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.

Roger Moore has crumpled his comic-strip good looks into something approaching world-weariness, and the newfound maturity in his expression is reflected in director John Glen's style, which goes for the measured and elegant over the flashy and excessive.

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

One of the most thoroughly enjoyable of the 12 Bond pix [to date] despite fact that many of the usual ingredients in the successful 007 formula are missing.

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.

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.
