James Bond. You appear with the tedious inevitability of an unloved season.

The 11th James Bond film, starring Roger Moore. Bond is sent to investigate Drax industries after one of their shuttles is hijacked in mid-transit, which turns out to be part of an Evil Plan to exterminate the world population and replace it with "ideal" specimens.

The movie was blatantly made to cash in on the science fiction craze that Star Wars had started[1]. Jaws returns as the only henchman to make a second appearance in the series, but his role was changed from "vicious killer" to "Wile E Coyote and The Road Runner".

Still, that laser and its Infinite Ammo can come in handy when you unlock it as a cheat in the N64 game GoldenEye.


This film contains examples of:

  1. How blatantly? The end credits of the older Bond movies always announced the title of the next one in the series. The previous movie, The Spy Who Loved Me said "James Bond will return in For Your Eyes Only." Moonraker was made instead.
  2. Though You Only Live Twice had a different screenwriter, namely Roald Dahl, whereas this and the previous film were written by Christopher Wood
