Even for James Bond, "Live and Let Die" has some ridiculously illogical set pieces. In spite of some contrived action scenes and reckless execution during its last act, Roger Moore's first time as Agent 007 entertainingly combines spy thrills with a little 70s blaxploitation and "Smokey and the Bandit."

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.

Roger Moore's first outing as James Bond plays out a lot stranger than expected.
Taking cues from blaxploitation movies and throwing in a voodoo mysticism does help it stand out from the other films. But it also makes it dated in its fashion and some cringey stereotypes. Jane Seymour is one of the most beautiful looking Bong girls but she's kind of useless. But she gets off better than Gloria Hendry, another beautiful actress who is nothing but dead-weight for 007 in her performance.
As for Bond himself, Roger Moore is very charming but his initial appearance is neutered by the fact that his version is rather easily tricked or captured. It starts out as funny seeing the suave super-spy walking around Harlem among pimps and gangsters. But it seems out-of-place compared to the …

Kananga/Mr. Big: "What shall we drink to, Mr. Bond?! / James Bond: "Well, how about an earthquake".
The story is about James Bond travels to New York to unravel the mystery. It all leads to Mr. Big, a drug dealer with plans for heroin and his beautiful assistant Solitaire.
Okay I got to get this off my chest. Roger Moore is not the greatest Bond. but let's not forget that Roger Moore is not a terrible actor, actually he's pretty damn good as a actor and in this movie he did a good job, but I'm sorry but his no Bond. The theme song to this movie (Live and let die) just like the other bond intros, they are always getting stuck in my head and this one got stuck to. The villains in this movie are remediable and such fun villains, and you know I have a big soft sport for villains. The …

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 …
