For Your Eyes Only Reviews
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: The main issue here is that it takes an awfully long time to get going. This makes for a pretty forgettable and disengaging first half that contains all sorts of unnecessary quips and action sequences.
VERDICT: Once you're in the thick of it it's enjoyable, but the build-up is pretty slow and dull. 'For Your Eyes Only' is neither Moore's best, nor by any means his worst.
The not so exciting action scenes and slow pacing make For Your Eyes Only a kind of forgettable Bond film.
More wit and less camp make this edgier Bond a welcome success.
A few extra winks and nods to making fun of all things Bond reach a fever pitch here including blowing up the stunning Lotus of the previous film, and even taking some unusually weird shots at the typical Bond-girl image.
Trust me, it gets weird all right, same as the bits of chauvinism, but i digress..
A bit more clumsy and vulnerable for a spy here too, but it builds the suspense differently without losing the Bond-spy image.
Revisits the ski theme with fantastic stunts and the rather satisfying tongue in cheek humor mixed in perfectly.
A very entertaining Bond flick, just plz forgive a few sexist shots in the script from 40 yrs ago.
4.5 out of 5 Bonds on ice
