    Ah yes, the one where Bond dresses like a clown aka the one literally called Octopussy! LMAO! All things considered, this one is less goofy than I remembered. There still is definitely some cartoonish nonsense here, like Bond somehow teleporting and a Tarzan yell from him. I've notice a trend with these Moore entries of them ruining perfectly cool stunts with either stupid sound effects or following them up with extremely unrealistic feats, definitely giving off a frustrating mix of feelings toward his run. A couple of his are definitely great, This isn't one of them. The main Bond girl, Octopussy herself, is a very confusingly written character. Her motives and actions are all over the place. The main henchman is a discount Oddjob. Bond himself is the most adolescent, perverted version of himself ever. He also, pretty much gives himself up on multiple occasions. At a point it seemed like he just enjoys being a hostage. That being said, it's fun, the plot is decent, everything is just ok enough for a pass. None of the negatives hurt the overall experience all too much. This one doesn't hurt the franchise. Ya, it's alright.

    My favorite from the Moore era. Balances some intense scenes, fantastic stunts and action with lots of humor and a convoluted but interesting plot.

    This is Roger Moore's best Bond movie. Octopussy is an awesome movie and has just does it for me the most out of all the Roger Moore films. There are some Bond movies I do love more. But none of the others with Roger Moore is any of them. It's definitely one of the best action movies of the 1980s. Everyone must enjoy watching this for a lifetime.

    [⭐️70%] Octopussy has a longer than average duration when it comes to James Bond movies, however it never drags in any places and is constantly moving with some fantastic big scale action scenes.

    Although the action sequences feels like Roger Moore would have had a heart attack from it , Octopussy has a memorable villain and Roger Moore despite his age , manages to pull it off barely still. Although having a decent story line , Roger Moore ridiculously wears a clown costume. (Really?!?!)

    The best of Moore's final four Bond films. It's not a strong Bond film but certainly better than the films before and after it. Villain B / Bond Girl B+ / Theme B-

    Roger Moore's worst. The action scenes are so dumb. The villain has a terrible plan. Nothing really makes sense.

    Es una pelicula entretenida y digna de la saga en su primera mitad, luego cae con un ritmo muy lento y actuaciones planas, a pesar de los detalles sin sentidos y lo ridiculo que ponen a Moore, la pelicula se deja disfrutar y no me parece la peor.
