Synopsis


The Man with the Golden Gun
The Man With the Golden Gun, Roger Moore's second outing as James Bond (Live and Let Die was the first), whisks our hero off to Hong Kong, Macau, Thailand, and then the South China Sea in search of a solar energy weapon. His opponent is Scaramanga (Christopher Lee), who rules the roost on a well-fortified island. Scaramanga's aide-de-camp is Nick Nack, played by future Fantasy Island co-star Herve Villechaize. Britt Ekland plays the bikinied Mary Goodnight, whose clumsy efforts to help Bond thwart Scaramanga are almost as destructive as the elusive solar device. The Man With the Golden Gun was adapted by Richard Maibaum and Tom Mankiewicz from Ian Fleming's last James Bond novel, which had to be published posthumously in "rough draft" form. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Live and Let Die
Roger Moore makes his first appearance as "Bond...James Bond" in 1973's Live and Let Die. Bond is dispatched to the States to stem the activities of Mr. Big (Yaphet Kotto), who plans to take over the Western Hemisphere by converting everyone into heroin addicts. The woman in the case is Solitaire (Jane Seymour in her movie debut), an enigmatic interpreter of tarot cards. The obligatory destructive-chase sequence occurs at the film's midpoint, with Bond being chased in a motorboat by Mr. Big's henchmen, slashing his way through the marshlands and smashing up a wedding party. Clifton James makes the first of several Bond appearances as redneck sheriff Pepper, while Geoffrey Holder is an enthusiastic secondary villain. The title song, written by Paul McCartney and Linda McCartney, provides the frosting on this 007 confection. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The Spy Who Loved Me
Though not Ian Fleming's most famous James Bond novel, 1962's The Spy Who Loved Me was distinguished by the unique device of telling the story from the heroine's point of view; in fact, Bond doesn't make an appearance until the book is two-thirds over. This would hardly work in the film world's Bond franchise, so the original austere plotline of the novel was eschewed altogether in favor of a labyrinthine story involving outer-space extortion. The leading lady, a "hard-luck kid" in the original, is now sexy Russian secret agent Barbara Bach, who joins forces with Bond (Roger Moore, making his third appearance as 007) to foil yet another megalomaniac villain (Curt Jurgens), who plans to threaten New York City with nuclear weaponry. Beyond the eye-popping opening ski-jump sequence, the film's best scenes involve seven-foot-two Richard Kiel as steel-toothed henchman Jaws. Fifteen scriptwriters worked on The Spy Who Loved Me; only two were credited, including Bond-film veteran Richard Maibaum. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    007 The Roger Moore Collection - Volume

    I'm a Bond fan from the Connery days (who is the classic) and I love Daniel Craig (the Thug-Spy-Tough/Tender Guy Bond). Roger Moore is the British Gentleman Cool-Hearted It's Fun to be a Spy Bond. The Moore/Bond taps into the humor that is overlooked from the novels. From the first movie Moore is at home being Bond. He gets better with each movie in this volume though the producers and directors make missteps with gags, characters and product placement. By The Spy Who Loved Me commercial breaks actually stop the movie during chase scenes but the movie has "Jaws" well worth the watching. Still, Roger Moore has a fun charm that none of the other actors have. When the Moore/Bonds came out the times called for movies that allowed us to escape and that is what we got. This volume includes the first three films and is a great addition to any Bond collection. The Blu-Ray is clean and now you can have digital copies for a great price. If you like Moore buy it.

    This is the start of Roger Moore's legacy as James Bond. Included in this set is his first three movies, Live and Let Die, The Man with the Golden Gun, and The Spy Who Loved Me. Some people have mixed feelings on Moore's Bond, but for those that enjoy him this is a great way to dip into some of his early favorites.

    Roger Moore's just fun

    For all of his flaws, some of which were carried over to Pierce Brosnan (go, go, gadget superspy), Roger Moore is still a lot of fun. The special features alone make his collections worth getting. But the first volume is also the strongest of his movies.

    Although you have to buy multiple copies of the differs actor James Bond collections, I think it's cool because if your a fan of the 007 movies and you only like a certain actor who played 007, then you can buy the collection in which they only played 007

    I started watching the original Bond movies out of curiosity and they're such gems! Moore's Bond is interesting compared to Connery's, but still great to watch. The disks worked perfectly and I'm definitely going to keep adding to my new collection.

    Purchased each boxed set in the Bond series with the exception of the Timothy Dalton & George Lazenby sets. It's a complete shame they did not include digital copies for these 2 sets. Quality is great however, and price is right!

    I purchased this set as a gift for my father (a HUGE Bond fan), and since giving it to him, the entire series has been watched over and over. Great buy!
