| A Solid First Entry for Roger Moore
Live and Let Die was a solid way to bring Roger Moore in as the new man to play Bond, and is yet another pretty good movie in the series.

James Bond (Roger Moore) is investigating murders three agents, and then closes in on a new target, who is a powerful leader, Kananga. He plans to create a global threat using self made heroin. Bond must demolish his plan, and he also meets the beautiful Solitaire (Jane Seymour), who is an excellent card reader that has magic that can be very crucial.

Although Live and Let Die is the first Roger Moore Bond film, it would be my least favorite simply because this one's story was good but I feel like the other ones are more interesting than this. But that doesn't mean the movie is bad. It is still pretty good.

Roger Moore is a great new addition to play Mr. Bond. He may not be as incredible as Connery, but he has the talent and the personality to play Bond himself. Seymour did an excellent job playing Solitaire, and she is one of my favorite Bond girls in the series. She's beautiful and has a very wicked personality.

This one also had some solid action. Kind of like the story, the action in the other Moore films get better. But this had some satisfying action to say the least.

In conclusion, Live and Let Die is a solid first Roger Moore James Bond movie, and things get better after this one.
