Moonraker (1979) ** (out of 4) To date the weakest entry in the James Bond franchise has Roger Moore returning as 007 but his mission this time is a bit too silly for its own good. Bond must investigate an American space shuttle that gets hijacked but thankfully he has assistance from Mrs. Goodhead (Lois Chiles). The two must go up against Hugo Drax (Michael Longdale) and the one and only Jaws (Richard Kiel). There are certain things that even James Bond shouldn't be able to do and space travel is one. I'm going to guess this film tried to capture some of the STAR WARS craze but no matter what the intentions were the final product is just a parody of itself and in the end it's quite boring and silly. What really took me by surprise is how silly everything is and it never really seemed as if the producers or directors were taking the material too serious. I'm all for Jaws returning from the previous film because he was a terrific character but here he's just us…
I grew up watching Bond films as a kid, and that was during the 1980's, my late mother was a huge fan, and I always heard as a kid that Moonraker was the worst of the Bond films and then chose to ignore it.I didn't get around to watching it, until I was almost 27 years old. I'm now 35, I was born in 77 so do the math. Well regardless I think this is now one of my favourite films, not just a Bond film, but a space film. I love everything about this film, it has class, great acting, great special effects(for it's time), and also a great score. I loved all the space scenes, they were reminiscent of 2001: A Space Odyssey.I know Star Wars is the only reason Bond went to space in 1979, but still, it has great atmosphere, with an awesome technological story. They saved the best for last in this film, and I loved every minute of it.An arch villain trying to take over the world through some kind of atmospheric plague, creating a new super race. Sounds a lot like the idiot H…
I'm a big fan of the franchise but this was awful. The chase scene in venice could have come straight out of carry on film. They played then rewound a pigeon glancing to one side to give the effect of a double take. Waiters were pouring beer over guests and bad guys had the intelligence of five year old children.Cannot believe they didn't include the opening few chapters from the book where bond comes up against drax at the card tables. Saying that apart from the character names the film bares no similarities with the book whatsoever, it is utterly different.Looking at other user reviews I seem to be in the minority, people seem to think this was a good bond film. I doubt these people will be inclined to read the book but to get an idea of how good this film could have been i would greatly encourage it.Perhaps one day they will remake this film keeping much closer to the novel. lets hope so.
