Rating: PG (US) Running Time: 2 hr 11 min
This was Roger Moore’s last run as James Bond, and unfortunately he went out with a whimper instead of a bang. All the elements are in place, but the whole thing just feels a little tired. Even the action scenes lacked any real spark or excitement. It did however have a great opening song performed by Duran Duran, and the score is superb.
You need to keep your expectations low for this one. It’s not the worst Bond, or the silliest, but it’s possibly the dullest next to Octopussy.
Best viewing format:
A good HD screen and surround sound system would be nice so you can enjoy John Barry’s score.
Best element for me:
The opening title song and John Barry’s score.
