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

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.

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.

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

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

The latest and least in the James Bond series.

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For this movie 007's license to thrill had definitely been revoked.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

Action-packed Bond film has sexual situations, shooting.

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.

This is Bond by numbers: the fast cars, fast boats and fast women are all here, but there's little imagination at work.

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.
Jul 29, 2012
Perhaps the most inconsistent of all James Bond pictures, with some outstanding moments and sequences sitting quite blithely next to absolute rancidity.
Jan 9, 2010
the first film that actually allowed Moore to get into the role without having to live up to Connery

A diverting but typically silly Roger Moore entry in the Bond canon. [Blu-ray]
