Octopussy (1983)

2007 #6
John Glen | 126 mins | DVD | PG / PG

OctopussyI dislike Roger Moore as Bond, mostly based on the number of piss-poor films he starred in. It seems I may just have been watching the wrong ones.

Whereas FYEO (see #7) is relatively widely praised, Octopussy is relatively widely panned. I’m not sure why. Yes, there’s a crap bit for about 10 minutes in the middle; yes, the clown outfit is a little silly; but, for the most part, it’s pretty darn entertaining.

Not the franchise’s all time high, but far from the worst entry.
