      The Man With the Golden Gun Reviews

      Bond and company are let down by a lazy script, but [Roger] Moore balances the overplayed humor with a steely performance and [Christopher] Lee’s charm and enthusiasm makes Scaramanga a cool, deadly, and thoroughly enchanting adversary.

      With one of the best conflicts and the perfect tying together of camp and almost psychological drama, this film is engaging and will have you on the edge of your seat by the end.

      Full Review | Original Score: A- | Aug 28, 2022

      The return of Sheriff J.W. Pepper automatically knocks this movie down a peg or 20.

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

      The Man with the Golden Gun boasts one of the greatest villains in the series; if only the rest of the film lived up to his level.

      Full Review | Sep 27, 2020

      Moore (in only his second try at Bond) gets to be extremely unconvincing as a martial artist, though somewhat believable as a frequent escaper.

      I love Roger Moore. I grew up on him as Bond. But in The Man with the Golden Gun, you can tell he hasn't settled into making Bond his own.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | Jul 16, 2020

      The producers seem intent on destroying a money-making business.

      Full Review | Dec 9, 2019

      One of the real Bond curios and arguably the most passable Roger Moore entrant to the entire series.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Oct 31, 2019

      The latest and least in the James Bond series.

      Full Review | Oct 29, 2019

      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.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | Jan 27, 2019

      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.

      Full Review | Original Score: 7/10 | Nov 5, 2015

      Merely another Bond film.

      Full Review | Oct 30, 2015

      This is an improvement on Ian Fleming's novel, with Christopher Lee making a fine villain.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Oct 30, 2015

      For this movie 007's license to thrill had definitely been revoked.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Oct 30, 2015

      [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.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5 | Oct 30, 2015

      Action-packed Bond film has sexual situations, shooting.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Jan 13, 2015

      This one has all the right ingredients to be a great Bond flick, I mean Christopher Lee is the main villain! I don't exactly know how they screwed this up, but they did.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Oct 25, 2012

      Why did a tale that could've been a bit ragged - and a nice stretch for Moore - become simply a so-so romp? Chalk it up to the franchise's nervous need to capitalize on other genres' zeitgeist -first, blaxploitation, and here, martial arts.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Aug 10, 2012

      Perhaps the most inconsistent of all James Bond pictures, with some outstanding moments and sequences sitting quite blithely next to absolute rancidity.

      Full Review | Original Score: 6/10 | Jul 29, 2012

      the first film that actually allowed Moore to get into the role without having to live up to Connery
