This film sums up all of the reasons why Roger Moore was so bad. Gimmicky, camp and stupid to the point of being a parody of itself. Absolute rubbish.

For one, there is too much action packed into this Bond film which avoids the three-hour-long running time of past entries into the franchise. There's barely enough time for Bond's signature witty one-liners with all the running around the plot (and audience) does and it's exhausting. For two, Jaws becomes almost a cartoonish character in this film and the movie spoils what was a solid villain in an earlier film by giving him a love entrance and having him speak.

It continues the series decline into a mostly self-parody feel. However, Jaws returns and there are a couple of great action sequences.

The cheesiest Bond of them all with Jaws in love and Bond in space. The special effects aren't too special here, but at least you'll have some fun with this Bond outing.

Russia With Love's opening sequence is good, but Moonraker may beat them all. A very underrated James Bond opening, and film.

Moonraker review

It's funny how Bond manages to kill an assassin from a tree instead of a bird without any repercussions, jumping off another cable car with perfect balance, how women throw themselves at him or a couple kissing never notices how their boat was cut in half. The humor, editing and one liners were just awful. The dialogues were just too long and some of the fight scenes seemed choreographed to the point of silliness. Reference from great films such as the soundtrack of Close Encounters of the Third Kind (password to open the door), Casablanca ("play it again Sam"), Jaws (villain), Good the Bad and the Ugly (Bond riding the horse), Star Wars in terms of sci-fi effects. Unfortunately, the homages and effects cannot save this movie. Moonraker felt forced to impress via posh locations, attra...
