Despite the fact that Roger Moore played Bond in this movie, it is my all
time favorite Bond movie. It has one of the best plots of all the movies,
and it has the best henchman of all time: Jaws. The scenes in this movie
were great, especially in Egypt, when Bond first meets both Jaws and XXX.
Furthermore, XXX is one of the first Bond girls who's actually capable of
taking care of herself, and her abilities are on par with Bond's. And who
can forget the classic scene when the aptly named Jaws "eats" the shark,
instead of the shark eating him. This was one of the few Moore movies
where Moore was actually good as Bond, and it paid off well. Everything
about this movie fell together the right way, making it number 1 out of 19.
This is one of the classic Bonds. Roger Moore makes his best perfomance as
Bond. The cinematography is great and the stunts are unbelievable. The
opening ski chase is one of the best opening scenes in the series. Throw in a
couple of hot babes and some classic Moore wit, and you have an all time
favorite. I give it a 006.
Simply said, this is the best Roger Moore Bond appearence, and next to
On Her Majestys Secret Service, this is the best Bond Movie. These are
the only two Bond movies that I can rate as a 5 star experience.
British Submarines are dissapearing and Bond is sent out to investigate.
Unbeknownst to him, the Russians have sent Agent XXX, Ayna Amasova, to
investigate their situation. Both sides are facing the same problem. Bond
and Amasova work together and the trail leads them to Karl Stromberg and
his underwater mansion, Atlantis. He is implementing a destructive plan
for world domination and Bond must stop him before he and his stolen
nuclear submarines engage war agianst the entire planet. But before he
can do it, he and XXX will have to get past Jaws, the terrifying
steel-toothed giant, played by Richard Kiel.
Stromberg, portrayed by Curt Jurgens, is one of the most memorable
villians in Bond history. He is cruel, quiet and has a horrifically
destructive mind. His love for classical music and sharks adds to the
enourmous tension. Barbara Bach puts the shoes on as the Bond Girl and in
my opinion is the best one in years. Not since Dominique in Thunderball,
have we seen a Bond Girl with the mix of beauty and brains like Amasova.
And as for Moore, well, what else has to be said? He is the best and this
film, along with TMWTGG proved it. Not enough can be said regarding his
wit, suaveness, and talented acting abilities.
But what can be said, is that The Spy who Loved Me is a great movie. It
is missing nothing. Great car chases, underwater adventures, and an
explosive finish are just some of the highlights of this Blockbuster. And
who could forget the Submursable Lotus Esprit? The Spy who Loved Me is a
great pack of thrills in two hours and is Bond at his Best. Don't miss
5 out of 5 stars
The Spy Who loved me is the best Bond ever, it uses land, sea, and air. Also
in this particular Bond movie their is a good amount of inventions from Q
such as the underwater car, the wave runner, etc.... The last thing that
makes this movie great is the plot, although it is a typical villian plot of
creating his own world, the action, adventure, and all around great effects
and stuff makes the plot much better then it would be in any other movie. I
think this movie deserves a 007.
