You cast Christopher Lee as a Bond villain and you find a way to blow it?!
| Original Score: 2/5
Christopher Null

It's all gaudily good, right down to Hervé Villechaize(!), bikini-clad Britt Ekland, and the inimitable Clifton James as the vacationing Sheriff J.W. Pepper.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

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.

Bond versus Herve and Dracula. How can such a thing possibly be disliked?
| Original Score: 3/5

Christopher Lee is superb, but a James Bond movie is in trouble when you're rooting for the villain.
| Original Score: 2/5

Roger Moore's second outing as James Bond is glossy, but fires blanks.

Not nearly one of Bond's best adventures, but fans will find enough to enjoy.
| Original Score: 3/5

There's no shortage of innuendo, action, exotic locations, or casual misogyny. Unfortunately it's too camp and cruel an adventure to raise more than a Moore-like eyebrow.

The Man with the Golden Gun certainly isn't worth $1 million, but it's fine for the price of a video rental.

The result is an entertaining film but not a very substantial one.

Moore tries hard to be tough and cool in the Connery manner. ...he comes off pretentious and cold.
| Original Score: 5/10

I thought Live and Let Die had to be the worst Bond movie in the series, but now I'm not so sure. The Man with the Golden Gun is running a very close second.
