The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)

the spy who loved me 1977Starring: Roger Moore, Barbara Bach, Curd Jürgens, Richard Kiel, Caroline Munro, Walter Gotell

Directed by: Lewis Gilbert

Written By: Christopher Wood, Richard Maibaum

Rating: PG (US) Running Time: 2 hr 5 min

Two Cents:

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.

Movie Prep:

This one has all the classic Bond elements, but it does get a bit silly. Try not to take it too seriously.

Best Format:

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!

Best Moment:

The set piece involving the Lotus right up to and including the action after the car launches into the sea and becomes a sub!

    I think all the Roger Moore Bonds were really played too cutsie. Fleming’s Bond was a killer, somewhat well educated, ex Royal Navy, killer. Sean Connery did it well. Craig does it better.
