Although an avid Bond fan, I find as I rewatched a few of the older bonds especially the ones starring Roger Moore (Who was at one time my fave Bond till Pierce Brosnan came along) I shake my head wondering what I was thinking ? As they all are so cheesy...That being said The Man With The Golden Gun takes the cake when it comes to cheese...cheesy one liners....cheesy special effects(The AMC Matador that sprouts wings and turns into a plane is just hilarious) I guess these are all things that make for a Bond film (Not lately) especially one that was produced in the early 70's? This was not one of my fave Ian Fleming stories that's for sure.

My personal favourite of the Moore Bond films. It's major assets are it's strong central theme (duality) and it's villain, played by the inimitable Christopher Lee. The script is also brisk and sharp, with an increased focus on espionage and a James Bond far more cutthroat than the one seen in the previous installment. Has an underrated theme song, too.

In my opinion The Man with the Golden Gun is a solid Bond film with great action and a good theme song. But the biggest thing that held this movie down for me was the main character himself James Bond. At the start of the movie he was a big jerk, like he tried to break a girl arm to try to get answers out of but she didn't know nothing, But as the …
