      Live and Let Die Reviews

      This gave the franchise a new life!

      Full Review | Original Score: B+ | Aug 28, 2022

      This introduces the worst -- I repeat, worst -- character to be found in any Bond movie.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4 | Sep 25, 2021

      Will James Bond live on in the 1970s? Not much farther, if this episode is anything to go by.

      Full Review | Dec 18, 2020

      It is good, lively, mindless entertainment, slow to warm up but once embarked upon its improbable story quick to appreciate its own absurdity.

      Full Review | Dec 18, 2020

      Live and Let Die's flaws are apparent, but it's still a solid adventure, and Moore fits smoothly into the role of Bond. It's an enjoyable film, and that's really all you could ask for.

      Considering the blandness of this eighth theatrical chapter, it's miraculous that further adventures would make it to the big screen.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/10 | Aug 30, 2020

      If Live and Let Die was Moore's acid test, then he passed the test.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Jul 16, 2020

      While [Bond's] latest adventure looks as though his producers had trimmed a few million dollars off the budget, it is still fast, funny and frivolous enough to satisfy.

      Full Review | Dec 31, 2019

      Stands as proof to the maxim that James Bond and the 1970s simply didn't mix.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | Oct 31, 2019

      Far from the worse offender in Roger Moore's outings as Bond. A boring boat chase and a slapstick final fate for our villain definitely takes it down a peg or two though...

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Jan 27, 2019

      If you want to see an out of place Bond effort that would have been vastly improved with Shaft or Superfly in the lead role instead of 007, give this a view.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/10 | Oct 26, 2015

      There are some splendid action sequences, notably a speedboat leap that set a new world record, as well as the usual array of hi-tech gadgetry.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Oct 23, 2015

      As fastpaced and snappily entertaining a piece of claptrap as we have a right to expect.

      Full Review | Oct 23, 2015

      So-so '70s Bond entry has sex, drugs, action violence.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Mar 13, 2014

      I can see how many people can be entertained by this ludicrous film, but not because it's good. It features an outstanding performance from Moore and has an enjoyably bad Blaxploitation thing going on here, but not much else.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Oct 24, 2012

      In the longest tenure of any James Bond performer, Roger Moore would certainly have higher highs and lower lows. And while it strays from Bond formula in ways good and bad, it's a fine introduction to a 007 more prone to crack wise than crack heads.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Aug 10, 2012

      The first outright terrible Bond picture.

      Full Review | Original Score: 5/10 | Jul 22, 2012

      Tacky and cartoonish.

      Full Review | Original Score: B- | Mar 1, 2009

      I know I probably shouldn't like Live and Let Die, but I do. This crackpot entry, the eighth, in the long-running James Bond series, is figuratively all over the map...[Blu-ray]

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Oct 25, 2008

      Guy Hamilton's direction lacks enthusiasm and pace, while even the art direction -- long the Bond films' real secret weapon -- seems to have fallen to a shrunken budget.

      Do you think we mischaracterized a critic's review?
