This is undoubtedly one of my least favourite Bond movies. Even Roger Moore, who I unashamedly love as Bond, can't save it. In fact, his persona is so exaggerated for this installment 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 a resigned piece of self-depreciating camp that revels in the fact the franchise doesn't give a damn anymore about telling a compelling story. It is not un-entertaining, but it is embarrassing.
