The action sequences are tighter, the visual gags more inventive, and if the plot is no great shakes, the whole thing is served up with a decent approximation to the old panache.

Makes no pretense of being based on anything except the Ian Fleming character and the high good humor and wit of the film makers.

I've never been a big fan of this Bond flick. Catchy name, though.

Roger Moore's best performance as Bond. He's sterling in this one.

Worst of the Roger Moore Bond films has a license to bore.

May satisfy die hard Bond fans, but won't work for anyone else. Among the franchise's weakest efforts.

The joy of a great Bond movie is the way it pushes the limits of believability -- and knows when to stop. Octopussy fails.

It's popcorn movie making at its most fundamental level, executed with a sense of fun and a minimum of bombast.

There's a fine line between wit and absurdity, and this particular movie too often falls on the wrong side.

Octopussy is a very minor entry in the Bond franchise.
