Merely another Bond film.
June 24, 2006
Roger Moore's interpretation of Bond is blandness personified.

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

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.

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.

You cast Christopher Lee as a Bond villain and you find a way to blow it?!

For this movie 007's license to thrill had definitely been revoked.

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.

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

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.

Moore tries hard to be tough and cool in the Connery manner. ...he comes off pretentious and cold.

Even the theme song sung by Lulu is a real lulu.

[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.

If you enjoyed the early Bond films as much as I did, you'd better skip this one.

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