Product Description

The British superspy with a license to kill takes on his dark underworld double, a classy assassin who kills with golden bullets at $1 million a hit. Roger Moore, in his second outing as James Bond, meets Christopher Lee's Scaramanga, one of the most magnetic villains in the entire series, in this entertaining but rather wan entry in the 007 sweepstakes. Bond's globetrotting search takes him to Hong Kong, Bangkok, and finally China, where Scaramanga turns his island retreat into a twisted theme park for a deadly game of wits between the gunmen, moderated by Scaramanga's diminutive man Friday Nick Nack (Fantasy Island's Hervé Villechaize). Britt Ekland does her best as the most embarrassingly inept Bond girl in 007 history, a clumsy, dim agent named Mary Goodnight who looks fetching in a bikini, while Maud Adams is Scaramanga's tough but haunted lover and assistant (she returns to the series as the title character in Octopussy). Clifton James, the redneck sheriff from Live and Let Die, makes an embarrassing and ill-advised appearance as a racist tourist who briefly teams up with 007 in what is otherwise the film's highlight, a high-energy chase through the crowded streets of Bangkok that climaxes with a breathtaking midair corkscrew jump. Bond and company are let down by a lazy script, but Moore balances the overplayed humor with a steely performance and Lee's charm and enthusiasm makes Scaramanga a cool, deadly, and thoroughly enchanting adversary. --Sean Axmaker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
When 007 (Roger Moore) finds out he is on famed assassin Francisco Scaramanga's (Christopher Lee) hit list, he sets off to find him. His mission leads him to Hong Kong, Bangkok and China where he gets mixed up with Scaramanga's beautiful but doomed girlfriend Andrea Anders (Maude Adams), Scaramanga's pint-sized side-kick Nick Nack (Hervé Villechaize) before coming face to face with the killer himself.

Although "The Man With The Golden Gun" was one of my least favorite in the never-ending series, after suffering through the more glitzy but souless Brosnan 007 entries (with the exception of the excellent "Goldeneye"), I have come to appreciate the earlier films a bit more (even "Moonraker"). This entry is more low-key. Plot wise, it is small potatoes to the more outrageous 007 pictures. I am still a bit intrigued how they manage to make a full length feature out of such a simple story but like every good 007 film, it entertains and gives us the usual- lots of action, nice location shots, beautiful women etc. The action sequences here are less extravagant but there are some highlights - the spiral jump for instance, and the exotic location shots are beautiful to behold- the opening shot is especially gorgeous.

The great Christopher Lee, whom I watched as a kid in the Hammer Dracula movies, remains one of the most likable villians in a Bond picture. Unlike previous bad guys, Lee's Scaramanga towers over Bond and is cool, cunning yet lethal. He also has some of the best lines in the film which Roger Moore admits to almost with envy in one of the film's commentaries (2007 edition- not sure if the more recent releases contain the same commentary).

Format: DVD
The Man With The Golden Gun, Roger Moore's second time out as British superspy James Bond, is notable for several reasons. Chief among them, is the fact that, this was the last film in the series based on the work of creator Ian Flemming. It also boasts a strong villian, his memorable henchman, and two more Bond beauties.
Bond (Moore) learns that the lethal assassin, known as Scaramanga (Christoher Lee), is out to kill our hero. Bond teams with agent Mary Goodnight (Britt Ekland) to track him down. Their travels bring them face to face with Nick Nack (Fantasy Island's Hervé Villechaize), Scaramanga's faithful servant and Andrea (Maud Adams), Scaramanga's tough but haunted lover and assistant (Adams returns to the series a second time as the title character in Octopussy). And speaking of returns, Clifton James, the southern sheriff J.W. Pepper from Live and Let Die, pops up out of nowhere on vacation. As It turns out, Scaramanga is holding the world's energy hostage, when he commendeers The Solex Agitator and only wants to face Bond in a duel
Made at the height of the 70's energy crisis, this film has all of the Bond trademarks, and director Guy Hamilton knows what he's doing for a fun ride. I have to say though, this time, the villian saves the film--Lee and Moore have a great time battling each other and a plot that loses its way at times. As fun as a Clifton James return may have been back then--it's totally wasted here and now seems quite inappropriate today.
The extras on the special edition DVD are pretty good. They are set up the same way as on most other discs in the series. The audio commentary from Hamilton, the Cast and Crew, is culled together from various sources, taken for what it is, the track is solid. Far better though are the two documentaries on the disc.

Format: DVD
The 9th James Bond movie. This was a project in the wakes of production immediately following LIVE AND LET DIE, and also marking the end of the partnership between producers Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman. Fortunately their last effort in this film combines the essential cutting-edge gadgetry, beautiful women, and astonishing action sequences beautifully mixing intrigue and excitement in the story. This also brought relevance to the Cold War-era in FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE with the Solex Agitator weapon, and a unique theme in 007's duel with a mesmerizing villain in contract hitman Francisco Scaramanga, as portrayed by Christopher Lee. After a decade of appearances as Hammer Films' Count Dracula, and a close partnership with Roger Moore, Lee brings the usual deadly authority to the role he has perfected over and over again. The real treat is two gorgeous Bond girls in Britt Ekland and Maud Adams, who later appeared in OCTOPUSSY.
THE ASSIGNMENT: Bond's search for a missing solar-energy scientist is placed on hold when a golden bullet engraved with the initials 007 arrives at headquarters. M takes this as indication that Francisco Scaramanga, the highest paid assassin in the business, has Bond's number. Bond is ordered to either resign or hunt Scaramanga. His only lead is the death of Agent 002. His search begins in Beirut, with contacts ranging from a belly dancer to a gun maker to Scaramanga's mistress Andrea Anders. Things gradually become more complicated as Scaramanga is watching Bond's every move. When Bond makes contact with M in the Hong Kong harbor, he learns the scientist developed a small solar agitator into pure energy, and is planning to defect to the East. He met his death at Scaramanga's hands, and now the solex is for Scaramanga's own deadly purposes.
THE VILLAINS: Christopher Lee as Francisco Scaramanga, Herve Villechaize as midget assistant Nick Nack, Richard Loo as Hai Fat, and Chan Yiu Lam as Chula the ninja.
