| Bond vs Winter Olympics
Roger Moore returns as Bond and takes down Blofeld once again in the first 10 minutes after visiting his late wife's grave. It's a good start, but it doesn't get any better after that.

A British spy ship is accidentally sunk by a mine. Its valuable communication equipment is a top prize for the Soviets. Meanwhile, a Greek tycoon is killed for unknown reasons, and Bond is assigned to investigate. He tracks down the assassin, but is killed in revenge by the tycoon's daughter Melina (Carole Bouquet).

Bond goes to Cortina in the Italian Alpes. And that's where he battles the bad guys in a Bond Olympics. He skis, he ski jumps, he skis on the bobsled track, and to top it off, he fights a hockey team. It's a bit of fun action. But it makes the mistake of dropping Carole Bouquet for much of the middle. I rather have a pretty face get in on the action. And Greek hilltop villain hideout just doesn't have the explosive action needed for the climax. All in all, it's an acceptable Bond escapist adventure.

Alternate Versions

New opening credit titles (the opening background graphics with Sheena Easton were unchanged) were created for the June 29, 2002 airing of For Your Eyes Only on ABC-TV's "Bond Picture Show". The original theatrical opening credits were in an Arial font, while the 2002 TV airing featured the new opening credit titles in Franklin Gothic. Some of the arrangement of the crew titles were altered for the new airing, where as in the theatrical version, was arranged with the crew member's position on the left, and the crew member's name on the right, while the 2002 version featured the crew member's name under their position title. Also, the original opening title which listed "ROGER MOORE as IAN FLEMING'S JAMES BOND-007" with the 007 looking like the standard 007 Gun logo, while the 2002 opening titles replace the 007 logo with just a plain "007".
