For Your Eyes Only Movie Review


As unlikely an adventure as James Bond has ever taken, For Your Eyes Only is one of the better Roger Moore vehicles, thanks to a script that overflows with exotic locales and extreme adventures for our hero to undertake. Eyes features Bond's best ski sequence (from slopes to ski ramp to lodge dining table to bobsled run), one of the best underwater moments (with Bond and his lady friend tied to a boat and dragged through a coral reef), and some of the best Bond-girl skin seen to date. Carole Bouquet even proved to be one of a very few Bond girls who could act, and it's refreshing to see Bond restrain himself from Bibi (Johnson), a young figure skater oblivious to everything but athletics and sex. The "stolen encryption device heading for Moscow" plot is a throwaway, but the real standout is Bond's steeled attitude: his mind clearly renewing his "license to kill," giving us Roger Moore at his most vengeful.
