100% Bond!

"I'm sure the General will get a big blast out of this!" - "I know he wont be disappointed."

Excellent film that must be among the best in the series. It really feels like a genuine Bond movie. Like Broccoli & Co went all in. Top- notch action, mysterious women, eccentric villains and great locations. And Roger Moore was born to be a leading man. When Connery got worse for each film, Moore just got better. In Octopussy he is super- confident and handles both the drama and humor with ease.

Movie Review: "007: Octopussy" (1983)

Producer Albert R. Broccoli (1909-1996) brings back the highly successful production team from predecessor "For Your Eyes Only" (1981). Director John Glen stays competent, yet is not able to retrieve any memorable "007" signature-making moments from another adapted short-story-based script written by Eon production's staff-writer Richard Maibaum (1909-1991) and executive producer Michael G. Wilson.

Actress Maud Adams reprises another character in a "007" movie, after getting shot in "The Man With The Golden Gun" (1974), as the title-given jewlery trader "Octopussy", who gets mixed up with Russian General Orlov, portrayed by over-acting actor Steven Berkoff and another this time India-based gambling Bond nemesis the character of Kamal, performed by actor Louis Jourdan (1921-2015) in beat-delivering balance between hostility and elegance. Main character James Bond becomes an older less agile character with actor Roger Moore at age 55, who does not shy away to disguise himself as a made-up clown on an unattractive East German Republic circus location of the early 1980s, which downgrades "Bond 13" to an overlong, yet some decisive action-scenes-striking motion picture as "007" continuity-obeying car-, train- and newly added plane pursuits that keep the spectre's attention in favor for short-lived entertainment.

Musical compositions retreat to a classic soundtrack by John Barry (1933-2011) after a more experimental score by Bill Conti in "For Your Eyes Only" (1981), who used the synthesizer to establish a periodic, nostalgic 1980s feeling that had been carried over at least visually to "Octopussy", which went to succeed with U.S. domestic audience by increasing moviegoers attendance at the box office of roundabout 24%.

Nevertheless this Bond picture failed internationally with a major drop in revenue from $ 140 Million to $ 50 Million, which sets the stage for a newly-shaping producing duo at Eon Productions with Albert R. Broccoli joining forces with executive producer Michael G. Wilson to produce a daring $ 30 Million Dollar production of "A View To A Kill" in season 1984/1985 for a keeping-the-faith Bond portrayed by aging actor Roger Moore in another "007" summer release of 1985.

Jokey low-point for Bond series

The absolute low point of the James Bond series. Probably even worse than "The World Is Not Enough," you know, the one where Denise Richards plays a nuclear physicist. The series reaches a jokey peak that absolutely ruins the film, which revolves around fake Fabergé eggs, a circus, and an army of female assassins. Absolutely ridiculous. And a minor quibble, but why would a snake charmer play the "James Bond Theme" within the film? If you skip on Bond film, make it "Octopussy"!
