This is undoubtedly my least favourite Bond movie. Even Roger Moore, who I unashamedly love as Bond, couldn't save it. In fact, his persona is so exaggerated for this instalment that he comes dangerously close to being insufferable. The film does have some positive qualities the mise-en-scene is lovely and John Barry delivers another superlative score (though his lyrics for the theme song are straight out of a George Lucas movie) but in the end the whole product amounts to an utterly horrid piece of self-depreciating camp that revels in the fact it doesn't give a damn anymore about telling a compelling story.

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.

Moonraker is a straight up goofy ball

James Bond in space doing goofy things and Jaws falling in love with a girl that he just met during his important mission to kill Mr. Bond. I'm sorry is this a James Bond movie or a Austin powers movie?.

The story is about Mr. Bond himself in space as the secret agent is on the trail of a missing space shuttle that leads to a plot to no less than global genocide by Hugo Drax, who has his own plans for civilization.

This has to be the most cheesiest and the most gooiest James Bond film I've seen out of them all. The visual effect's at times can looking good, but most of the times it looks out dated. I loved the character Jaws. I though he was pretty awesome in the other Bond films, but here he falls in love... wait WHAT?!.

The good things about the film: Roger Moore once again do...

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...
