Honestly not one of my favourite Bond films. I think it lacks an awful lot and the Golden Gun doesn't come across as half as amazing as the film attempts to portray it as. I think it's a bit cut off from the real world atmosphere due to being on the island a fair chunk of the film.

Nothing against Christopher Lee or even Roger Moore; they were great, just the plot was rather dull for me.

Also, fucking hate the theme song for this. Lulu is terrible <_<

*** 1/4

This is honestly a lot better than I remember it. I prefer Bond doing detective work rather than being an action hero.

I'll admit I laughed at J.W. Pepper in the film. But I think it would have been a lot better if they left out a lot of the comedy. It's horrible that they put loop noise over what really was the series' most bad ass car stunt.

The ending was underwhelming as well. They could have hooked us with suspense more in the fun house showdown. Instead we get some goofiness from Goodnight and Bond chasing after Nick Nack.

The highlight for the film for me was Christopher Lee. His acting was great. He looked like he was filled with glee when he got to show Bond around his Island. His facials were perfect in the dinner scene with Bond. And I couldn't help but smile when the music they played before he died sounded like something you'd hear in a horror film.

And I agree with Chilly. The song for this movie is horrible.
