The next Movie guide is up. There is a lot of information in this one. Here is a quick read:
Stung by criticism that Moonraker had strayed too far from the 007 formula, Cubby Broccoli made good on his promise to make For Your Eyes Only a more realistic thriller. He succeeded quite admirably, although the first half of the film is a decidedly mixed bag. The pre-credits sequence is extremely well done, but its impact is largely negated by an over-the-top villain and some very exaggerated jokes. The extended chase sequences in cars and by skis are technically proficient, but so overlong that they appear to be used as padding. The film takes off with the introduction of the viullainous Kristastos and his rival Columbo - two fascinating characters played superbly by Julian Glover and Topol. The pair re-energise the film and ensure that the story becomes far more involving. The film also boasts the directing debut of long-time Bond editor John Glen, who acquits himself admirably with his first of five 007 films.
