For Your Eyes Only

One of the more enjoyable entries in Roger
Moore’s later tenure as 007. This one has an organic feel and villains
which are fairly proportionally scaled, which makes the movie inviting despite
its obvious sillinesses. Maud Adams makes for something of a layered
Bond villain in the title role. And she's also quite believable as
Moore's mistress. The action is spearheaded by a couple of brilliant, high-flying sequences which are enthralling in all their pre-CGI stupendousness.
They make you forget the sluggish fistfights which make up the rest of
the action. An interesting detail is that among Q's gadgets this time is
a forerunner for the modern smartwatch, an innovative little thingy from Seiko. The theme song, "All Time
High" sung by Rita Coolidge, is the lowest-charting among all Bond
songs to date.
