One can never go wrong ordering a James Bond movie. The movie is great, the product arrived within a few days of the predicted date, and I'm very pleased with the movie and the service from Amazon.

Yes I would buy from this seller again. Got it in time and there were no problems. I haven't watched it yet but I sure it will be fine.

TOP 100 REVIEWERon April 15, 2011
Moonraker is one of the most scenically breathtaking Bond films (Rio, Venice, Space etc.), which helps make this film a visual feast on blu-ray. (For anyone who might confuse Bond titles and plots, remember the return of favourite steel-toothed villain, Jaws.) The blu-ray contains many extras (commentary, featurettes etc.), but must compromise with compressed audio (loud sound effects, soft dialogue) - my consistent complaint of the Bond blu-ray series. It's a fun film and though some special effects hold up better than others, Moonraker is definitely worth it for the visuals alone.

I love Bond's determination in MOONRAKER; there are so many opportunities for him to just give up and go home, but he sticks with it and eventually saves the world.

In a series of painfully absurd Bond films this is the absolute worst. Nothing in this film makes one want to watch it. From the ridiculous acting to the most wooden, unappealing Bond girl ever (even though Lois Chiles is beautiful she's hardly the hottest babe in the film), by way of the most boring Bond nemesis ever, this is completely uninspired dreck.
Only one of the usual suspects is at the rendez-vous: beautiful scenery (with yet another visit to the Rio festival). As a bonus you do get a cartoonish appearance by Jaws who finally finds true love with a cute blonde. Ya right!!! If you never watch this film you will miss nothing from the Bond universe and you will have saved 2 hours to do something worthwhile. It doesn't even deserve the few words I have devoted to it. Shame on me!
The overall rating of 4 stars for this film shows up Amazon's ratings for what they really are: unreliable and best served with a mound of salt.

A half-hearted... no, make that quarter-hearted attempt to cash in on the sci-fi craze of the late 70's. Jaws is back. Whoopee. He survives several five-hundred foot falls, and, get this, a re-entry into the earth's atmosphere. Without a spaceship. Roger Moore... sorry, but you're no Sean Connery. The special effects, well, maybe they looked really cool in 1979, but now they look more than primitive. A plot that makes no sense, too much silliness, and the most annoyingly slooooooow motion zero gravity scene ever. Skip it and Live and Let Die. Actually, no. Listen to the first couple minutes of Live and Let Die. Mr. McCarteny's theme song is worth the money paid to rent it. But this pile of... uh... bad stuff? Avoid it like the plague.

The one directed by Orson Welles and produced by Dayton Mace. It had Dirk Bogarde as 007 and Welles as Drax. Trust me, with the exception of some slip-ups that kept it from being released, the release is going to knock people's socks off. Sure, it doesn't compare with the current Bond series, but it's the quintessential original. It's also the first Bond film on record ("Casino Royale" on TV was a big mistake). With some small things being cleared up, the forgotten "Moonraker" will rightly see the light of day again, where it should and will belong.

The 11th James Bond movie. In the closing credits to THE SPY WHO LOVED ME, filmmakers had announced FOR YOUR EYES ONLY to be the next James Bond film adventure. Several months later, producer Albert R. Broccoli had announced MOONRAKER to be the next film instead. Part of this would be due no doubt to the phenomenal success of such recent science-fiction space epics as STAR WARS and CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND. Therefore this was bound to be one of the most heavily produced 007 epics since THUNDERBALL. Only instead of the ocean, Bond would be transported into a more elaborate setting for action - outer space! With a very sizable budget, and beautiful locations around the world ranging from France, England, Italy, Brazil, Guatemala, and the United States, Broccoli once again demonstrates the key to success in ongoing film series is to adapt to changes in time. Roger Moore gives a usual excellent performance with the help of a tough and gorgeous Bond girl in Lois Chiles as Dr. Holly Goodhead. The real treat is Richard Kiel back as Jaws! This would also be Bernard Lee's last appearance as M, as he passed away in January 1981.
THE ASSIGNMENT: The MOONRAKER Space Shuttle, transported from the U.S. to Britain on the back of a Boeing 747, has been hijacked in mid-air and the Jumbo destroyed. As the shuttle was on loan from the Americans, the matter is serious and Bond is sent off to discover who stole the shuttle and why. Drax Industries, in California, is where the shuttle was built and this is the starting point. Inquiries produce serious misgivings about Hugo Drax himself, suspicions leading 007 to Venice. There he learns Drax has developed a deadly nerve gas which kills people, but not other wildlife. The gas comes from a rare orchid found in Brazil - the next destination. When Bond finally locates Drax's headquarters, it seems he is up to something even more sinister. He has built a city in space which he intends to populate with beautiful people who will become the progenitors of a new super-race. At the same time, he intends to kill off Earth's entire population with the nerve gas, leaving his perfect super-race to construct a new order of civilization on Earth in the future. As stated, for 007 the situation is critical!
THE VILLAINS: Michael Lonsdale as Hugo Drax, Richard Kiel as Jaws, and Toshiro Suga as Chang.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! BUY IT!

So far I have only seen two James Bond movies, they were Never Say Never Again with Sean Connery and Moonraker with Roger Moore. I know that a lot of fans of the James Bond movies don't like Moonraker but I actually enjoyed watching it and I think Roger Moore was good as James Bond but I think Richard Kiel steals the movie with his great performance as Jaws and I recommend this movie especially for Richard Kiel's performance!

This was an Excellent Bond movie for its time and is still a pleasure to view it today. While viewing it now may look a bit hokie, for those of us who were old enough when it came out, remember the context in which it was released (i.e., Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, and Buck Rogers). The special effects were pretty good for its time. For those born in the 80's or later, I would recommend sticking with the latest Star Wars, Matrix, or Adam Sandler movie.
