About the Movie
In this 9th entry in the James Bond series, Agent 007 (Roger Moore) is assigned to retrieve the world's only device (the "Solex") that can be utilized to harness the sun's energy. A hair-raising car chase through Bangkok and a stunning confrontation with an entire martial arts school leads Bond to Hong Kong and the island hideaway of mysterious international hit man Francisco Scaramanga, who uses tailor-made gold bullets and his signature gold pistol on his contract victims. Based on the novel by Ian Fleming.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: If you enjoyed the early Bond films as much as I did, you'd better skip this one.
Rotten: The best Bonds, like the car that twirls, were sly without quite getting silly. The best Bonds also had Sean Connery, whose absence is sorely felt here.
Fresh: Roger Moore's Bond has got a rough deal over the year, but whilst this takes itself a little too lightly it has a lot going for it.
probably the worst Bond ever.
Just look at the Karate sequence in the preview. Enough said.
Of all the Bond movies, this is my least favorite. It's COMPLETELY different then the book by Ian Fleming. This take did have a lot of potential but was ruined by silliness and terrible stunts. Roger Moore's next outing as Bond was a better effort and more successful. This is the Last of the Bond movies to watch. Strangely enough, it was directed by the same man who directed Goldfinger...........
It's not the worst but the karate was horrible
