Another one of my personal favorites. Thismovie hooked me on the whole James bond library. The grace Jones character was cool, although many Bond films feature female villains. Walken always plays a good bad guy. The final scene on the bridge is memerable for me. As well as the guy who gets pushed out of the blimp by Grace.

This one was middle-of-the-road for me. Never was a huge Moore fan - always thought he was too self-aware with the one-liners amd not dashing enough - though I've always loved Grace Jones.
Moore was actually the original pick the producers wanted from the beginning of the series, but he was tied up with TV contracts at the time, so they went with the lesser known and cheaper-to-sign Connery. Couldn't have worked out better, in my opinion.

Just did a rewatch for the first time in probably 2o years! I stand by the rating - it has its moments, but overall suffers from Moore-era, slide whistle sound FX goofball syndrome. The opening scene is a snow ski-stunt set, and done admirably well until Moore puts one over on the Russians (ah, the Cold War!) and 'California Girls' starts playing while he skis away, ruining the action mood. Later on, we're treated to a car chase scene in San Francisco involving a fire truck, a few cable cars, and the unfortunate decision to use the SFPD as if they were the Keystone Kops.
On the plus side, Walken and Grace Jones make formidable Bond villains (and watch for a very brief non-speaking cameo by Dolph Lundgren as a KGB goon, who was dating Jones at the time).
Walken wants to blow up Silicon Valley, so he can control the microchip market, seeing as how that was THE IT item in 1985. Everything just started to have microchips in 'em, even surgically implanted into racehorses' legs so they could win races! (I know, it made no sense to me either - would that actually work?)
Anyways, this was the last of Moore's Bond appearances, as he was 57 at the time of filming, and self-admittedly '400 years too old' to be playing the part.

What's your rating of this movie?
