"Bond Has Everything - James Bond Agent 007 Is Back "Agent 007 is assigned to hunt for a lost British encryption device and prevent it from falling into enemy hands.
Down to Earth, Bond back on track!!!
The Bond series was moving into the wrong direction in 1979 with Moonraker,
John Glen takes over the directing for the next 5 adventures, beginning with
'For Your Eyes Only'.
Bond is back down to Earth with a bang, a very satisfying entry in the Bond
series. The film is much more Fleming-like, that is until Dalton comes
The story is very interesting because it's more of a spy movie, Moore has
some work to do here!!! There's no reliance on the gadgets.
The Bond girl played by Carole Bouquet is very good, not just a pretty
The acting is much better than Moonraker, John Glen eases into the directing
The photography is wonderful, very realistic colour use.
There are some fun stunt sequences, the ski chase is fantastic.
The film score is fun, but a product of its time, unlike Barry, the music
doesn't transcend the generations!
Overall, 'For Your Eyes Only' is a satisfying Bond picture. Obviously you'll
be viewing it in wide-screen!!!
James Bond returns in Octopussy!
