Despite being so simple, the plot feels needlessly complicated and gets upended by the convoluted final act. But honestly, "A View to a Kill" isn't as bad as its reputation suggests.

Roger Moore is as charming as ever as a screen presence. But he's too old to play an action lead in this relentlessly dumb entry into the James Bond series. Hoping to bank on the computer craze of the eighties, Christopher Walken plays a mad millionaire hoping to destroy Silicon Valley with an artificial earthquake. Okay...But in all honesty, Walken is the best thing about this dumb movie as one of the craziest and most ott Bond villains ever. Tanya Roberts is a gorgeous woman but she's a terrible actress;oddly fairing better in Sheena than this.

The worst Bond film by quite a long way. Walken is wasted, Grace Jones can't act and Moore hobbles through the "action" on a zimmer frame. Hopeless.

Even Christopher Walken as the main villain couldn't save this movie.
The story is about James Bond himself as he returns from Russia with a computer chip cable of surviving the EMP of a nuclear blast. Zorin industries is responsible and Bond uncovers a plot to corner the chip market and destroy Silicon Valley in the process.
Last august a good friend of my asked me, "What's you least favorite Bond film out there?", and it took me about a year to find the worst Bond film out there.

Until came across A View to a Kill, and this movie is flat out awful in many ways possible.
Is it just me or Roger …

Roger Moore as James Bond 007 is assigned to investigate millionaire industrialist and race horse owner who MI6 suspect is selling critical microchip information to the Soviets. Chris Walken is terrific as Max Zorin, a purebred Nazi baby all grown up into a charming and suave, yet sinister and psychotic madman. He plans on flooding Silicon Valley in California thus allowing him to corner the microchip market.
Zorin's accomplices are a former practicing Nazi, Dr. Carl Mortner (Willoughby Gray) and, a tall, muscular, and ferocious woman, MayDay (Grace Jones), a woman so athletic that her jump from the highest platform of the Eiffel tower is truly one of the most memorable action scenes. She added an unusual element to the movie which almost helps me to block out Tanya Robert's …
