When fanatical Soviet General Orlov (Steven Berkoff) devises a plan to detonate a nuclear bomb on a West German U.S. Air Force Base, by stealing valuable jewels from the Kremlin and selling them to aristocratic smuggler Kamal Kahn (Louis Jordan), which in turn will use his business partner, Octopussy's (Maud Adams) traveling circus to get the bomb onto the base, and blow it up, which would lead to the U.S. pulling it's forces out of Western Europe, and then the Soviets would be able to take over. 007 is sent in after 009 shows up dead at the British Embassy in East Germany holding a Faberge egg.
Roger Moore is starting to look a little old in this one, but at least this Bond Girl (Maud Adams) is roughly his age. Louis Jordan gives a wonderful performance as 007's top villian. And the locations are spectacular, they make India look like a wonderful place to visit.
