It features a killer Duran Duran theme song but strikes out in nearly every other regard.

A View to a Kill is nowhere near as reviled as its reputation suggests. It might not be the proper send-off Roger Moore deserved, but the film has a great sense of fun, and its Villains are in a league of their own.

The primary villain is memorably vicious and well acted, the henchmen and their demises are bombastic and amusing, and the set pieces are extravagantly grandiose.

It will always be my ultimate guilty pleasure Bond film

Where other Bond films at least have a kitsch quality, A View to a Kill is not only silly but it also commits the ultimate cardinal sin for any Bond movie - it's boring.

A good Bond film, filled with plenty of action and set pieces, with a great opening theme to boot! A solid note to go out on for Moore, even if he isn't a highlight himself...

If [the Bond films] don't accept the convenience of retirement, which is not expected, they will stop being shows for adults with childlike spirits and become scandalous cases of corruption for minors. [Full review in Spanish]

Moore is worth every wrinkle on his face in "A View to a Kill," the seventh movie he has made in the Bond series and the most enjoyable since "Moonraker" back in the '70s.

While it doesn't reach its full potential, Roger Moore's final 007 outing is still a largely entertaining if admittedly flawed adventure.

The film also fails on other traditional Bond levels. For example, the gadgets. Zorin and his gang have an inflatable dirigible, but so what? The key to the best Bond gadgets has been that they were something you might want to own yourself.

It's not double-oh-seven anymore, but double-oh-seventy, the best argument yet for the mandatory retirement age.

An arthritic thriller that forgets where it put the excitement and infamously transforms Bond into a quiche cooking homebody.

The plot doesn't really convince, perhaps because we've seen it or something similar so many times before.

A View to a Kill plods along dutifully, observing the rules of the series with dull consistency.

The strain is starting to show on 007.

Hard as it is to justify Bond films on intellectual grounds, there's something invigorating -- and strangely reassuring -- about this sort of picture.

Tired 007 effort has ridiculous plot, iffy behavior.

This time around, 007 is a paunchy old man looking like he needs to retire. The film has little energy, thrills or fun, which is essential for a Bond film. The series has now reached an all time low.

Contrary to historical opinion and some truly awful movies, Moore conjured roguish magic over his 12-year tenure. His Bond cast the spell that initially charmed me as a kid - one perhaps so intoxicating to him that it was simply hard to let go.

What says "outlandishly dumb action film from 1985" better than a plot to flood Silicon Valley and corner the world's microchip market?
