Moonraker

Another good Bond movie and hard to compare with Diamonds are Forever. Comparing Connery to Moore is difficult because they are different kind of Bonds. Connery is more he-man whereas Moore is suave and has a different sense of humour. Moore also has a very British accent of course, Connery can’t hide his Scottish one. So I consider both of them equal.

The movie itself was just as entertaining with a good mix of action, comedy and implausible storyline. As with Diamonds are Forever there was a funny henchman in the form of Jaws who will probably be the best of them all, big guy but funny.

Both Diamonds are Forever and Moonraker though did not feature a Bond car at all. Moonraker had a weird gondola when he visited Venice, it transformed into a hovercraft loaded with all kinds of weapons. There was a Bond boat in the movie too, but no Aston Martin or Lotus.

Score: 8/10
Movie count 2011: 66
Bond-O-score – Roger Moore: 9/10
