Bond is old but still cool

A View to a Kill is at least better than Octopussy, but it's so absurd as to make for a less than perfect time.

The aging Roger Moore rehashes his somewhat foppish Bond in this sad '80s installment with Grace Jones as a vampish villainess. Awful, and an embarrassment to the Bond mystique.
| Original Score: 2/5

Once 007 was licensed to kill; now he not only eats quiche, he cooks it himself.

Roger Moore's final Bond film is a solidly entertaining entry in the series.

Moore's tryst with Grace Jones is, on the one hand, a well-intentioned attempt to tear down the Bond-girl color barrier, and, on the other, a rather disturbing image.

Moore's final Bond picture is one too late. Walken is a fine villian, though.

As lavishly escapist as they are, the latest James Bond films have become strenuous to watch, now that the business of maintaining Bond's casual savoir-faire looks like such a monumental chore.

Registers as another high-flying James Bond adventure story.

In this 007 film, former real man James Bond not only eats quiche, he literally bakes it.

Moore should have bowed out after the superb "Octopussy", but this is still a pretty good time at the movies.
| Original Score: 3/5

Fun but truly silly James Bond movie. Some good action - the firetruck, the horse race, etc. - but be ready for over the top villains.
| Original Score: 3/5

The inauspicious implosion of Roger Moore's stint as James Bond, not with a bang but a whimper.
| Original Score: 1/5

Walken as a Bond villain, Duran Duran on the soundtrack -- it could be an infomercial and I'd still love it!

As certain films in the Bond series have set specific benchmarks for tone, A View to a Kill is James Bond in comic book perfection.

Not as bad as its reputation, but certainly among the lesser Bonds.

A View to a Kill is often numbered among the worst of the series, but, upon closer inspection, this film is a vast improvement over Octopussy.
