Bond: The last Moore
James Bond: My name is Bond, James Bond.
U.S. Police Captain: And I'm Dick Tracy and you're STILL under arrest!
In 1985, Roger Moore performed the role of James Bond for the last time, and I suspect that he won't come back again, unlike his predecessor Sean Connerey. Director John Glen presents a facinationg and entertaining adventure worthy of the lagacy, and a nice farewell to Moore.
As the main plot has already been noded by Sylvar
in the wu above, I won't intrude on his turf.

May Day: Wow! What a view!
Max Zorin: To a KILL!
Does this Bond have any any good girls? Well of course,it wouldn't be a Bond without it, would it? This time around we have Tanya Roberts as Stacey Sutton, the damsel in distress, Alison Doody as Jenny Flex, and finally Grace Jones as May Day, Zoran's Henchwoman, who is, well...scary! And, as usual, there are many beautiful extras without speaking roles, including in a cameo appearance, Maud Adams (Octopussy)
James Bond: Well my dear, I take it you spend quite a lot of time in the saddle.
Jenny Flex: Yes, I love an early morning ride.
James Bond: Well, I'm an early riser myself.
What about "Q" (Desmond Llewelyn)? Well, he saves James's behind as usual by providing the needed equipment such as the Snooper (small robot surveillance machine), a watch with a garrote (Well, after James was on the wrong end of this device for a number of times, it's bloody time for Q-Branch todevelop their own model), a fountain pen with flammable ink, a bug-detector in the Philishave razor, a video camera that transposes a cinema image into graphics and plots in order to retrieve the identity of the subject from a central computer.
The title song, as noded above, is performed by Duran Duran, breaking wth the long tradition of female singers.
To finish up and complete the writeup, here is a nice link to all things Bond:
