Product Description

Amazon.ca

Roger Moore's last outing as James Bond is evidence enough that it was time to pass the torch to another actor. Beset by crummy action (an out-of-control fire engine?) and featuring a fading Moore still trying to prop up his mannered idea of style, the film is largely interesting for Christopher Walken's quirky performance as a sort-of supervillain who wants to take out California's Silicon Valley. Grace Jones has a spookily interesting presence as a lethal associate of Walken's (and who, in the best Bond tradition, has sex with 007 before trying to kill him later), and Patrick Macnee (Steed!) has a warm if brief bit. Even directed by John Glen, who brought some crackle to the Moore years in the Bond franchise, this is a very slight effort. --Tom Keogh

Great music, beautiful women, exotic locations, fancy gadgets - that's what a James Bond movie is to me, and this edition excels in almost all areas. From the opening skiing scene (not quite as thrilling as the ski scene that opens The Spy Who Loved Me, but nonetheless - ), to the very cool Duran Duran theme song, the entire film is standard Bond fare.
The great thing about Roger Moore's version of James Bond in this film is the tongue-in-cheek approach he takes. It's a Bond that doesn't take himself too seriously, yet still manages to wear a tux wherever possible.
There's a chase scene early on that starts in a French restaurant in the Eiffel Tower, runs up to the top of the tower, parachutes off and continues through the streets of Paris.
(I remember when this movie was first released, and Roger Moore appeared as a guest on Johnny Carson's "Tonight Show" to promote it. He had a clip from the end of this particular chase scene, when Bond was in a small French car whose top was shorn off, and the back end was knocked off by a passing vehicle - adding new importance to "front wheel drive" in what was left of the car that Bond continued to drive through the Parisian streets. At the end of the clip, Johnny was laughing very hard and it led into a big discussion of the over-the-top Bond approach to chase scenes. I remember it well.)
Bond is sent to investigate suspicious activities at the location of a beautiful European castle on a palatial and breathtaking estate that makes watching the film worthwhile. The grounds are the home of Zorin, played by the striking Christopher Walken, who ultimately proves to be the Bad Guy. (Walken? The Bad Guy? Big Surprise there!) The castle is amazing, the views are impressive, and the social activities are grand.

The 14th James Bond movie. Immediately following OCTOPUSSY, Roger Moore (by then in his late 50s) made an announcement that he was going to retire from the role of Agent James Bond. After playing the role in six successful films prior, it was evident to producer Albert R. Broccoli with a new partnership with screenplay writer Michael G. Wilson, efforts would have to made in searching for a successor. However Moore's decision gave him an opportunity to depart from the role in high style. Indeed there is action and stunt sequences a plenty ranging from a ski chase in Siberia, a jump from the Eiffel Tower, and a final confrontation atop the Golden Gate Bridge. What remains is Moore's ability to bring many fascinating dimensions to the role; charm, humor, charisma, and determination. Although his final performance highlights the film, he is aided well with Tanya Roberts (who looks great in a bathrobe) as a blonde damsel-in-distress heroin, Patrick Macnee of TV's THE AVENGERS as a fellow ally, Grace Jones as an Amazonian villainous, and Christopher Walken (who won an oscar for his performance in THE DEER HUNTER) as a psychotic villain. This would also be the last James Bond film for Lois Maxwell (ironically the same age as Roger Moore) as Miss Moneypenny. Look fast for Dolph Lundgren as a KGB Agent, and who wouldn't love Fiona Fullerton as the Russian spy?
THE ASSIGNMENT: A microchip is found on the dead body of Agent 003. Yet this is no ordinary piece of silicon, it is specially designed by the British to withstand the destructive magnetic pulse that accompanies a nuclear explosion. Agent 003 must have obtained it from the Soviets who, in turn, must have access to British research. The first suspect is Max Zorin who raises horses that continually win races that their pedigree suggests impossible.

Format: DVD
Moore's seventh and final outing as Secret Agent 007 James Bond, A View to a Kill has the unenvious distinction as quite possibly the worst film in the James Bond series, with Tomorrow Never Dies jockeying for that position. Like previous Bond flicks which turned out to be flops, for the most part (i.e. You Only Live Twice, The Man With The Golden Gun, Moonraker), A View to a Kill is rather entertaining as a movie, never meant wholeheartedly to please discriminating critics. However, A View to a Kill, aside from the fact it attempts to be cute in its humor, has its share of scenes that are so steady-paced, that they are slow and lack of depth in the characters.
In this fourteenth edition of Bond, the story starts off with 007 on the frozen tundra of Siberia, retrieving a microchip from the corpse of a fellow MI6 agent. With henchmen on his track, Bond embarks on a ski chase, which at point, has The Beach Boys' hit "California Girls" playing in the background, when Bond seems to be snowboarding. On a side note, that Beach Boys' segment is rather ridiculous and somewhat humorous. At any rate, MI6 examines the retrieved microchip and find out that this particular chip is similar to a British prototype, which could withstand intense electromagnetic radiation from a nuclear blast and that someone is leaking out the design details to the rival Soviets. That someone is the psychotic French industrialist and microchip maker, Max Zorin (Christopher Walken), founder of Zorin Industries. Bond is off to a Paris racetrack to keep an eye on the eccentric Zorin.
