A View to a Kill Reviews
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: However it does begin to get extremelly over the top, cringey and unbearable, half way through. In fact, by the end, it feels like more of a mindless action flick than a good Bond movie.
VERDICT: It may be gripping to start, but it gets truly ridiculous. Roger Moore goes out with more of a physical bang than a good one.
#1 Full of over the top stunts including an Eiffel tower parachute jump within 10 mins
#2 Lots of gadgets
#3 The best Bond Villain possibly ever in Christopher Walken. A man who made smiling normal while betraying and murdering people.
#4 A great campy soundtrack(Duran Duran)
Roger Moore's last mission is right up there with some of Bonds best work..
There is a gal named Jenny Flex in the film. Bond says, "Of course you are." Get it?! Her name is Jenny Flex, like the word "genuflect," which means to bow down in front of someone. Like a woman would to be subservient to a man. Or to suggest sexual activity on one's names. Oh ho ho. What a knee-slapper. If this film represents anything, it's that we're not nearly as bad as a society toward women as we once were. Hopefully.
Saying this, it's still an enjoyable movie, even if it isn't the best entry in the Bond Franchise.
In this PG-rated spy adventure, an investigation of a horse-racing scam leads 007 (Moore) to a mad industrialist who plans to create a worldwide microchip monopoly by destroying California's Silicon Valley.
When a slow-moving blimp is the literal 'vehicle' that sets your supposedly explosive climax in motion, you know it's time to hang up your Walther PPK. Indeed, the final San Francisco Bay Bridge action set piece offers the most excitement of the entire flick ...which is to say, none at all. At this troubling juncture, Jones' character name, Mayday, seems symptomatic of the franchise in general.
Bottom line: That Fatal Kiss
