    Synopsis


    For Your Eyes Only
    Roger Moore is back as Secret Agent 007, this time on the trail of shipwreck that holds an Automatic Targeting Attack Communicator (ATAC) for all of the British Naval submarine fleet. Along the way he teams up with the beautiful Melina, played by Carole Bouquet, a maiden out for revenge against a Cuban hitman who killed her father, the head of a British effort to salvage the ATAC. Turns out the hitman was in league with Greek businessman Aris Kristatos (Julian Glover). who's working for the Soviets to attain the Communicator. Together with a drug smuggling rival of Kristatos (played by Topol), Bond and Melina race against time before the keys to all of Britain's missles get in the wrong hands. Richard Maibaum's screenplay has very little to do with the collection of short stories that made up Ian Fleming's For Your Eyes Only, save for the plotline involving Melina's seeking vengeance for the death of her father. The direction is by John Glen, who'd previously done second unit work on other Bond films and went on to direct four more films in the franchise. For Your Eyes Only eschews the gimmickry and campiness of earlier Roger Moore efforts by concentrating instead on intrigue, save for the campy opening that sees Bond dispatch the dastardly Blofeld in a broad comedic pre-credits scene. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    A View to a Kill
    Secret Agent 007 must stop a megalomaniacal technology mogul from destroying Silicon Valley in this fourteenth episode of the long-running James Bond series. Computer baron Max Zorin (Christopher Walken) is planning to trigger a major California earthquake in order to wipe out his competitors. Bond is dispatched to stop him in Europe, where he is partnered with Sir Godfrey Tibbet (Patrick MacNee). Sent in to slow down Bond and Company is Max Zorin's sadistic and murderous sidekick May Day (Grace Jones), the first of two Bond girls in the film (the other being Tanya Roberts). The expected high-wire confrontations ensue, including a parachute jump off the Eiffel Tower, a drive through the streets of Paris with a car cut in half, and a life-or-death struggle with a blimp on top of the Golden Gate Bridge. This production is most notable for the fact that it marked the final appearance of Roger Moore as the dashing Bond. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi

    Octopussy
    This (13th) time around, 007 (once again played by Roger Moore) receives the usual call to come and visit M when another agent drops off a fake Faberge jeweled egg at the British embassy in East Berlin and is later killed at a traveling circus. Suspicions mount when the assistant manager of the circus Kamal (Louis Jourdan), outbids Bond for the real Faberge piece at Sotheby's. Bond follows Kamal to India where the superspy thwarts many an ingenious attack and encounters the antiheroine of the title (Maud Adams), an international smuggler who runs the circus as a cover for her illegal operations. It does not take long to figure out that Orlov (Steven Berkoff), a decidedly rank Russian general is planning to raise enough money with the fake Faberges to detonate a nuclear bomb in Europe and then defeat NATO forces once and for all in conventional warfare. John Glen returns again to handle directing duties, the second of five Bond films he lensed. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

    Moonraker
    In this adaptation of Ian Fleming's 1955 novel, James Bond (Roger Moore) must thwart Sir Hugo Drax (Michel Lonsdale), who plans to wipe out all of humankind and replace it with a super race that he has cultivated in a massive space station. The film's Bond girl in the case is American secret agent Holly Goodhead, intelligently played by Lois Chiles. "Jaws," the steel-mouthed henchman played by Richard Kiel in The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), makes a return appearance in Moonraker, turning good guy (complete with a girlfriend of his own) in the process. Bernard Lee makes his last appearance as "M" in what was up til this point, the most costly of James Bond's 1970s escapades. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Roger Moore did more Bond movies than any other actor who has portrayed 007, and this is the second and final volume of his collection. In this set you get Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, and A View to a Kill. For Your Eyes Only is a bit of a gem in the other movies. While I've enjoyed all of Moore's Bond movies on some level For Your Eyes Only allows him to show off his skill in a story that doesn't rely so much on gadgets to get it done. This time he uses his wits more, and it ends up being one of the better portrayals of a grounded Bond before Daniel Craig's modern run. The other movies have their moments too, but that one stands out the most to me in this volume.

      No complaints at all about the movies or disks (except that is Moore but no points off for that). Obvious damage however to outer sleeve and and small damage to plastic case. I would think someone would have caught that before shipping. This completes my Bond films collection (minus the 1967 Casino Royal fiasco) so I am overall very pleased with with purchase and would recommend it.

      Great set, but these are the worst Bond movies.

      You might think Moonraker is the worst of these, but oh no. A View To A Kill is the worst performance I've seen from Christopher Walken. This really was the nadir of the Bond franchise. Moore got very long in the tooth, but if you are collecting digital copies and are a completionist, you *need* this set. Why it's still $20+ everywhere is beyond me.

      Roger Moore is still fun

      This is the weakest half of the Roger Moore 007 movies. Even with the flaws, it's still a great deal of fun, especially when things go ridiculously stupid. And the special features are great. And either way, if you're building a proper Bond collection, you'll need these films anyway.

      I am a Bond fan. How could I say no to a few James Bond movies in Blu-ray at this price. I originally wanted to see Moonraker, and am very pleased to say how nice it looks. This will make a fine addition to my growing Blu-ray 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!

      Superb quality visual and sound for a classic set of films. Blu rays have gone down in price alot making this under 5 bucks a film and you get the additional digital copies. Over all a great purchase if you don't own any copies.

      If you don't already own the Bond movies, this is a good way to start. It is not all the Moore movies but it is a good start. Quality is very good and the Bond movies are always fun to watch.
