Moore ends his run as Bond with a whimper not a bang in this pretty terrible entry in the long running series. Tanya Roberts plays a state geologist (!!!) almost as convincingly as Walken plays a super villain....not at all. Even the stunt work seems lazier in this entry with the differences between cast and stuntmen quite obvious. It was bad when Bond seemed like father to the women he seduced...but grandfather?
Arguably the weakest entry in the Roger Moore era, A View to a Kill is an oxymoron; trying to update the franchise to 1985 while clinging on to the same tropes and aging actors as before. It does have its perks, namely the theme song by Duran Duran, the Golden Gate climax, and the stellar Christopher Walken as Max Zorin. That aside, the film suffers from uneven pacing and a few odd gags.
Worst 007 of all time, as if you can't tell that from the screenshot. Roger Moore was 58 years old here, so the fact that his romantic interest is about 20 is kind of awkward if you think about it. Worth watching if not for Christopher Walken, who's always good for a couple of laughs.
Roger Moore's stuntman was very good in this movie. He was the only one who was. The "hi-jinks" in San Francisco were like something out of a really bad Matlock episode. Watch out for zeppelins, Tanya.
