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

Thankfully this was not the case with this film.
I won't say that I am the biggest James Bond fan ever there are far too many to know for sure. I would like to think I have a above average appreciation for this most engaging character and his sidekicks. I am thinking that Mr Craig the current Bond has had the biggest impact on how I feel about the character but each Bond has a special place in my heArt
Connery the first and the template for all to follow used his artistic canvas to paint a debonair and commited son of England who will do the right thing and do it right while looking and feeling cool. The first most interesting man in the world. Roger more the most films to his Bond runs made Bond funny and easy and determined with not a hair out of place. Lazenby was a stand in with style you knew Bond getting married was a bad idea and it turned out we were right.
pierce B was a happy combo-meal Bond young pretty half Moore half Connery all 80s and completely acceptable by all. Dalton in contrast was the anti war spy by default angry at the world for getting so bloody out of hand-Bond. If I fix it you better not mess it up again Bond. Too angry to be cool and moody moody moody.
Then came D.C. Cool suave Blond? Ok we will overlook that cause darn if he isn't the "Bondiest" of Bonds.
There is no doubt in my mind that his role in "LAYER CAKE" lead to him being 007. He is James in so many ways it's the role he was meant o play and though I have no doubt he will play many others with equal gravitas (too old for Adam warlock?)he will embody Bond for me for a long time. That having been said this movie rocks watch it love it
While not being particularly fond of many of Sir Roger Moore's adventures as James Bond, I must admit that For Your Eyes Only is amongst his best films as the legendary spy. Moore's take on the character tends to rub me the wrong way, with his silly attempts at action and his focus on style over substance, but he does butch things up a bit with this outing. The film is easily the most realistic of Moore's contributions; the producers made a point of trying to bring the Bond character closer to that of the books. MGM brings For Your Eyes Only to Blu-ray with a understated but attractive video encode, and audio that does its best to sound up to date. Supplements are extensive, as is normally the case with the Bond releases; fans will be more than pleased. Ultimately, while this film doesn't hold up to the scrutiny of time as well as Sean Connery's contributions to the Bond Legacy, For Your Eyes Only is, perhaps, Roger Moore's best. Set your expectations to a reasonable level, and the film might just surprise you. Recommended.
"I'll buy you a delicatessen! In stainless steel!"
After the out of this world masterpiece that was Moonraker Cubby Broccoli rightfully chose to open the new decade bringing Bond back down to Earth with this faithful return to Fleming's source material. Using elements from two short stories from For Your Eyes Only as well as elements from other novels a gripping plot concerning a stolen guidance system and a possible turncoat lead Bond to Greece with the aid of the beautiful daughter of a murdered scientist and charming smuggler. The transfer while shows the films' rather drab and earth-toned cinematography limitations is still perfect and of course the extras are extensive as usual especially the great commentary by Moore who provided commentary for all the films he made under his tenure. Highly recommended for fans of the film or for those seeking a more down-to-Earth earlier Bond film.
