A middling Bond film, The Man With the Golden Gun suffers from double entendre-laden dialogue, a noteworthy lack of gadgets, and a villain that overshadows 007.

Roger Moore is a pastry chef's idea of James Bond; but Christopher Lee as the archetype of the evil antagonist makes this 007 outing just about bearable.
The best Bonds, like the car that twirls, were sly without quite getting silly. The best Bonds also had Sean Connery, whose absence is sorely felt here.
The comparatively spare arrays of mechanical devices seem more a cost-cutting factor.
Roger Moore's interpretation of Bond is blandness personified.
If you enjoyed the early Bond films as much as I did, you'd better skip this one.
The Man with the Golden Gun certainly isn't worth $1 million, but it's fine for the price of a video rental.
Had so much wasted potential. Scaramanga was a great villain, both written and played, but everything else surrounding him in the movie is... well... bad.
Perfectly embodying the best and worst of the Roger Moore 007 era, this is a fun Bond adventure that ultimately fails to fully meet its potential.
Merely another Bond film.
This is an improvement on Ian Fleming's novel, with Christopher Lee making a fine villain.
For this movie 007's license to thrill had definitely been revoked.
[Lee] gives a performance that will endure long after the rest of the film is forgotten; he is its meaning and purpose, towering over its cartoon action, reducing even 007 to a footnote.
I enjoy this particular entry about on the same level as Moore's previous Bond flick "Live and Let Die", some intriguing elements but the final product comes out to be above average.
Once again Moore is fantastic and having the awesome Christopher Lee as the villain is genius casting. I also liked how this film played around with the idea of having Scaramanga being an evil-version of Bond. It's just a shame that Lee is criminally underutilized and the plot takes a few too many detours (Ex. The really pointless martial arts tournament sequence).
Thankfully, the Roger Moore era of the Bond franchise is about to finally take off in the next entry "The Spy Who Loved Me"!!
"The Man with the Golden Gun" is far better than what the reviews are saying, even though I agree with most of the issues. It may have silly action sequences and some cheesy side characters that are in the film for no reason, but this Roger Moore addition to the Bond franchise is awesome in every sense of the word. The villain is interesting enough, the story is smart enough, and the performances are as good as to be expected. The story in this film is one of the most enjoyable in the series, but it has some of the cheesiest scenes, so I guess it balances out. This James Bond film may not be one of the best in the series, but it has some fun elements to it.
Moore's second outing as Bond is more engaging than the first due to a cheeky script, a better villain, and a more interesting plot.
some great moments, and very entertaining, but the film also suffers from some really silly and nonsensical moments as well. the characters were great, and bonds pursuit of a character that seems designed as the "anti" bond is a great concept, but the escape from the dojo, the reintroduction of sheriff pepper, and the maze room were all a bit too much. a decent bond, but not one of the better entries.
