Another solid Moore Bond film, and maybe a little more entertaining than his others. This is also the one with my favorite Bond car after the Aston Martin DB5, the Lotus Esprit S1. Its plot does get a touch ridiculous, and the action scenes are spoiled a little by the horrible disco era inspired music. But we are also also introduced to Jaws (Richard Kiel), a classic Bond villain.
This one has all the classic Bond elements, but it does get a bit silly. Try not to take it too seriously.
I doubt you’ll get to see this in a movie theater, so at least watch it on a nice big screen with the sound turned up!
The set piece involving the Lotus right up to and including the action after the car launches into the sea and becomes a sub!
