5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Bond May 26, 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I know this one doesn't usually appear near the top of many critics' Best Bond Movie lists, but it's near the top of mine. Roger Moore was really in his prime in this one, and this was one of his tougher, more physical Bond performances. Moore has always been suave, and he posesses perhaps the best comic timing and delivery of any of the Bond actors, and he uses that well in Golden Gun. Also, in regards to the melody of the title song, and it's use throughout the movie, this is, IMO, the most effective scoring in the whole Bond series. There are great, exotic locales, exciting stunt sequences, and definitely one of the strongest villains in the whole series. I thought Lee's character of Scaramanga was perhaps a bit more realistic than many Bond villains, as he was more of an intelligent, psychotic loner rather than some megalomaniac set on world domination As a fan of the series, I also appreciated the Bond vs. Scaramanga final showdown as a nice change of pace from the common large scale "good commandos" vs. "evil army" battle that's used in a lot of Bond films. I also find the J.W. Pepper character to be one of the funniest in the series, so his appearance was a plus for me--this Bond movie had just enough humor to enhance the action and make it fun, without it going overboard and getting too cheesy, as they did with some of the later Moore movies. I just found this movie to be incredibly entertaining, and it just had that great Bond "feel" to it. Great picture and sound on the DVD, and a really cool documentary on the stuntmen and stunts from the whole series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Time Heals Old Wounds September 28, 2000
Format:DVD
When I first saw "The Man with the Golden Gun" on its release I had mixed reactions about it. "Live and Let Die" had been such a departure from the James Bond we had been used to seeing, it was good to see some of the old elements return to this film.
The character of James Bond had been revamped in "Live and Let Die" in an attempt, I suppose, to dissociate Roger Moore's interpretation of Bond from that of Sean Connery's. In "Live and Let Die" gone were the "Martinis shaken not stirred," the Dom Perigone, Bond's virility, worldliness and sardonic wit. Even his wardrobe was over-the-top.
In "Live and Let Die" gone also was John Barry's score, Desmond Lewelin as Q, M's briefing at "Universal Exports" headquarters, the gambling casinos, engagingly futuristic and lavish sets, the sensuous and worldly bevy of Bond women.
"The Man with the Golden Gun" opens with Maurice Binder's gun barrel trademark, accompanied with the "James Bond Theme" this time played on strings, instead of guitar. That was a real innovation by John Barry, which he continued to use for Roger Moore. It was clearly evident Barry was back.
The first camera shot is of a surrealistically exotic locale on a beach where a beautiful girl towels down a tall ark man emerging from the water. The man is Scaramanga, the Man with the Golden Gun. John Barry's familiar background music accentuates the Epicurean surroundings and the film immediately looks like it has returned to more familiar Bondian territory.
As the film unfolded many of the aforementioned elements missing from "Live and Let Die" returned. There also seemed to be a more substantial plot as it initially unfolded. However, there were still undesirable elements that crept into the film as it progressed.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Middling Bond: An Average Bond, No More, No Less March 29, 2007
Format:DVD
THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN is a bit of an odd entry in the Bond series. Overall, the film feels a bit "cheap" compared to the films that immediately followed it. The sets are not quite elaborate enough and appear flimsy, the locations are not exotic enough, and the villain is no supervillain. Despite these faults, however, I must say that I enjoyed THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN more than its predecessor LIVE AND LET DIE. The film does not feel quite as dated and the filmmakers seemed to have wanted a bit of a harder edge on Moore, now in his second outing. Thus, while THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN certainly fails to make it into the top five of the Bond series, it is no slouch and one of the better Moore films.

After the opening "gun barrel" sequence, we suddenly open up on a beautiful private island beach and get our first glimpse at the film's villain, Francisco Scaramanga (Christopher Lee) and his diminutive manservant Nick Nack (Herve Villechaize). Nick Nack plots an assassination attempt against his boss by hiring an assassin to take him out. After a duel throughout Scaramanga's house of mirrors studio, Scaramanga dispatches with the assassin with a single bullet from his trademark golden gun. Apparently, Scaramanga plays such games in order to keep his edge. The scene closes on a life-size replica of Bond himself before fading into the opening titles. The titles are another Maurice Binder treat, featuring the golden gun seamlessly blended with the silhouettes of acrobatic women twirling on its barrel. Despite the artistry, however, the title song is one of the worst in the entire series, with awful lyrics to boot--quite a letdown after the McCartney song in LIVE AND LET DIE.

It's refreshing to watch a movie where acting, not visual effects prevail. Roger Moore is my favorite Bond of all.
