A strong first Bond adventure for Roger Moore. I liked the mix of Voodoo and other themes.

Not my favorite Bond film, but still a pretty decent outing for the spy series. It does, however, have the best Bond theme song, and a few good villains (thought the Voodoo thing was kind of weird). All in all, a good effort.

The best of the Roger Moore era, this 70s Bond film introduced us to the very lovely Jane Seymour. But its Yaphet Kotto who steals the show. Stunts are great. Film is campy. Also features the greatest theme song to any movie everwritten by the very talented Paul McCartney

"Live And Let Die" by Yojimbo

Bond investigates a drug lord with a reputation steeped in black magic in probably the most tacky and exploitative outing in the franchise. It is guilty of jumping on every yokel-pleasing bandwagon of the 1970s, including redneck humour, blaxploitation and ludicrously over the top car chases, all tainted by the kind of distasteful sexism that was swept away by 1980s political correctness. The plot is also straight out of Austin Powers, featuring a villain called "Mr Big" (oh, the imagination) and an attempt to kill the indestructible secret agent by leaving him alone and unguarded right outside their secret drug lab. Doh. Moore is far more sleazy than suave, his seduction of the radiantly beautiful Jane Seymour feeling particularly seedy, but my biggest problem with this rather nasty blax...

Live and Let Die review

James Bond (Moore) investigates the killing of Three British (MI6) agents. Rosie Carver, a CIA double agent, was murdered in the island of San Monique. Mr. Big captures Bond and the tarot expert Solitaire from Dr. Kananga (Heroin distributor). Tee Hee Johnson, who takes Bond to a crocodile farm community in the Louisiana backwoods. Its a coincidence how the tarot card come true from Bond of course, except for the deck coming. Humor was natural and funny most of the time. Film's score was quite repetitive but the locations were adequate for the action sequences Moore just did a decent job being a more humorous Bond instead of cool and deadly. Kananga dies as an inflated balloon, no blood in sight during his death which was ludicrous. Live and Let Die had its moments, overall a goo...

Didn't Work

This isn’t my favorite James Bond film even though it has a nice balance of action and humor. At times I felt like it was too light to the point where it’s impossible to take the more serious scenes… well, seriously. Rooger Moore is a mediocre 007 because he lacks a certain edge that Sean Connery has. Moore is a bit too goofy with his one-liners and I wanted him to be more dangerous. One of my major problems is that the film somewhat relied on the belief of tarot cards coming true. That lack of realism really bothered me and I wish the writers eliminated it from the story. It’s a shame because the premise started off well: three agents were killed from different sides of the globe and Bond has to find a connection on why it happened. While the beginning is brilliant, the execution and the...
