| Funny,excitement ,thrilling new entry with a brilliant villain, Louis Jourdan
Bond again in an electrifying movie that scored a new hit at action genre.The immortal agent 007,whose deadly precision,sour irony and irresistible attractive is perfectly portrayed by Roger Moore.This time he investigate the killing of one his colleagues who appeared dead with a Russian egg Faberge of incalculable price. He undergoes an incredible adventure with spectacular pursuits until a chilling countdown towards nuclear holocaust.OO7 taking off an elegant villain(Louis Jourdan)named Kamal Khan living in India,Bond tries to stop him but the maniacal nasty wreak all sorts of havoc until Bond steps in and he schemes to put a nuclear bomb at a circus whose owner is Octopussy(Maud Adams,the only Bond girl who repeated acting,previously played ¨The man with the golden gun¨).The film contains excitement,emotion,lots action,suspense,gorgeous women(a beautiful Kristina Wayborn)and maniacal nasties(Jourdan,Steven Berkoff,Kabir Bedi).

The argument tosses in every cliché including the obligatory intervention by MonneyPenny(Lois Maxwell),M and Q(Desmond Llewelyn). Before essaying the role Bond, Roger Moore honed his suavity in the series ¨The Saint¨,hence he adds a humorous-tongue in check dimension to Ian Fleming's famed creation as the connoisseur(women and wine especially) spy hero,starting his role Bond with ¨Live and let die¨.Film displays gimmicks and silly set pieces that usually marred the best Moore outings.In spite of an exciting opening sequence and some thrilling scenes along the way the Bond-Moore series is starting to look a little tired, just its star protagonist.John Barry's music is unforgettable ,as always and colorful cinematography by Alan Hume.An agreeable screenplay and more believable exciting with cliff-hangers situations come to mind;still,this solid outing isn't bad Bond and it does star the best sympathetic OO7.This is one of the more watchable entries based on a short book by Fleming with the same title with Roger Moore in top form as 007 and assured direction by John Glen.
