I first saw Moonraker when I was in Junior High on television. At the time, I knew almost next to nothing about James Bond. The only thing about James Bond I saw up to that time was a scene in Thunderball where Sean Connery was being stalked by the tenacious Luciana Paluzzi and her hoodlums.
I knew nothing about the history of Bond, and which film came first or second, or third.... I knew nothing about the golden girl in Goldfinger, nothing about the sexual names of Bond's various mates...I didn't even know about the term "Bond girl". I know nothing about the gadgets, or M, Q, or Moneypenny.
Moonraker, which everybody seems to trashed, turned me on to the world of James Bond. I became a fan, and went on to see every movie that came before it (For You Eyes Only just came out in the theaters at the time)whenever it came on television.
If Moonraker is so all the naysayers claimed, I would have not been a fan...and would never surrender myself to the world of 007. BUt instead, I loved this movie, and I became a 007 fan that day. And judging by the box office, Moonraker probably attracted thousands of new fans as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad , but not outstanding..... September 10, 1999
By A Customer
MOONRAKER is okay and has a couple of good moments.The locations are beautiful ;007 travels to California,Venice,Brazil and Outer Space!Unfortunatly,this eleventh entry in the Bond series remains underrated and was never taken to heart by most fans.A plot that was definetly inspired by Star Wars and actors who do not seem to take their roles seriously may have something to do with it. Dr Holly Goodhead(Lois Chiles) is pretty but never had a status as a memorable Bond girl. Hugo Drax(Michael Longsdale) is not a classic example of a head villain.However,Jaws(Richard Kiel) adds flavor to this movie.Despite mixed reviews, MOONRAKER was one of the most grossing James Bond films of all time.I enjoy this movie once in a while,and I find it superior to the two first Roger Moore films(LIVE AND LET DIE and THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN) but inferior to FOR YOUR EYES ONLY, THE SPY WHO LOVED ME,and A VIEW TO A KILL.The theme song by Shirley Bassey is not bad.Worth a look, but dont have too many high expectations..........

4.0 out of 5 stars This movie must of been one of the best Bond flicks ever! December 30, 1999
By Pat F
Format:VHS Tape
I have seen around 7-8 James Bond movies but none are as good as this one. I watched it on T.V. one night and when I ushually watch a movie and just drift off but not this one. It has a great plot on how criminal mastermind Hugo Drax hijacked a few space shuttles and prepares to make purification with extermination! It also includes the best of all henchmen and most popular one, Jaws, the 7 foot giant with steel teeth. This also includes great action scenes all around the world. Many people think it's the worst Bond movie, I don't. It's probaly the best. Rent it, you will like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars No way, Moonraker rocks. August 22, 2005
This screen is starting to look like the metaphorical equivalent of the sweet space battle at the end of this breathtaking achievement of cinematic perfection. Well, I'm here to shoot a few of my own lasers now, this movie totally kicks a$$. Let's start with the opening song, which I think is easily in the top 3 of all time best Bond openers.

So there's this frog named Drax who wants to kill everyone on Earth, and start from scratch with his own breeding stock of beautiful people. The genocide of the ugly people of Earth comes by virtue of a space delivered disease, or nerve agent, or something equally superfluous, which Drax of course also manufactures.

I have a theory which goes a little something like this: When a man reaches a certain level of wealth, he naturally begins to contemplate some dimension of world conquest. The uber-villains Bond is often pitted against seem to pan this theory out nicely, begging the question, when will 007 take on Dick Cheney, Bill Gates, or Ronald McDonald?

So in comes old pervy Bond to salivate all over the dames, karate chop some mouth brething henchmen, and get all up in Drax's grille. Drax, for is his part, is no sllouch though. The man is straight evil, but his taste in women, crib's, and lasers is beyond reproach. I suppose because I grew up with Roger Moore playing Bond, I get the best of both worlds, because Connery and Moore are both Bond to me.

Now, in a movie which already has so much to offer the entertainment starved masses, we see the return of super hencmen JAWS. That alone should raise a pulse or two, because this guy is emma effin indestrutable. You can shoot him in the face, throw him out of an airplane, drop him in a tank full of ill tempered sharks, drop his a$$ from outerspace, and he doesn't die.

Not bad. It's a good fast-paced action Bond movie, and I was especially interested in it since it takes place partly in space. Read more

Roger Moore went into space in this James Bond film from 1979. I am not sure why this movie got made except as a rip-off of science fiction films like Star Wars. Read more

There were issues when the first wave of Bond Blus were released for MANY players, but manufacturers were quick to release firmware updates. I have a Sony BDP-S300 and BDP-S550 and there are no longer any issues with the 300 (and there never have been with the 550).
