Synopsis


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

    Moore's Last Outing As Bond

    A VIEW TO A KILL is Roger Moore's last James Bond film and it is one of his best. It is the pinnacle of Roger Moore's irony and contradiction to the James Bond established by Sean Connery and brought to fruition by George Lazenby. Here Roger Moore gives greater depth to James Bond than we have ever seen making his performance one of the most endearing. Guy Hamilton established this approach with GOLDFINGER and honed it with his excellent THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN, which was a mixture of action and absurdity at its best.

    I saw the movie first back in the eighties and because the way action movies are made now ( with extreme stunts and pyrotechnics ), I thought that this movie would not be as thrilling as before but I was wrong. It still captivates the audience with its solid storyline and cool characters. Mayday remains one of the more interesting villains in the James Bond franchise. This is an excellent movie to watch and a good one to add to your collection.

    Sir Roger's Bond swan song

    Posted

    Many have complained that this film is the nadir of the Bond saga, but nothing could be further from the truth. Yes, the plot is not exactly original, but the great villains (Christopher Walken & Grace Jones), the sexy Bond girl (Tanya Roberts), and the delightful ally for Bond (Patrick Macnee) make this film worthwhile. The climax at the Golden Gate Bridge & the title tune by Duran Duran also help make Sir Roger's Bond swan song entertaining.

    This Bond movie opens with one of the greatest chase/action scenes ever committed to film and released to the public. Roger Moore in his last portrayal of Bond finally gives it his all as an actor and delivers his most nuanced performance as Britain's greatest spy. Stellar all around.

    Better than the critics say

    A lot of people have ripped this movie, but it is better than advertised. Yes, it is Moore's last Bond flick, and yes he has gotten a bit too old, but the plot is fun, and the action is reminiscent of "You Only Live Twice," particularly in the way the villain has what appears to be an impenetrable lair. You will enjoy this movie if you are a Bond fan.

    Roger Moore's Second Best

    Posted
    indiana1994

    Roger Moore is back again in his final Bond stint. This one is definitely the second best of his films, and also probably in the entire series. It has the best Bond villain of all-time, Max Zorin, played by the legendary Christopher Walken. It also has Grace Jones as the evil henchman/Bond girl/hero. Nothing can beat this film, except perhaps The Spy Who Loved Me!!!!!!

    Great blu-ray for a decent James Bond Effort

    This one is typically not considered one of the great James Bond films, but I've always enjoyed it because the villain is the great Christopher Walken. Also, we get Grace Jones and Tanya Roberts! The blu-ray is packed full of extras, including the titular Duran Duran music video. Well-worth the purchase price alone.

    Its a james bond film when they were still good and not a boring special effects movie with too much action and not very memorable characters. Even the older not so good JB films still had interesting characters and settings. The picture and audio were good, and it came with a decent amount of bonus content.
