It's a pleasure to report that the James Bond company is confidently back on the beam.

A solid action movie without the variety show camp of Moonraker, Octopussy (shock, horror) may well the best of the Moores.

While this film is not up to the level of Goldfinger or Live and Let Die, it is still first-class escapist entertainment.

While the film is the first of the genuinely bloated Bond movies, it only rarely drags.

Film's high points are the spectaccular aerial stuntwork marking both the pre-credits teaser and extremely dangerous-looking climax.

One for the die hards. The saving grace here is a knowing sense of humour so lacking in its predecessor, For Your Eyes Only.

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.

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

It's popcorn movie making at its most fundamental level, executed with a sense of fun and a minimum of bombast.
| Original Score: 70/100

Considering Bond gets disguised as an ape, a crocodile and a clown, the film has a lot more to be embarrassed about than its title.

This was the 13th Bond movie and it's possibly the most frivolous in the series to date (it's certainly the most careless).
