Roger Moore makes his fifth appearance as 007 in this, the twelfth Bond film. In this outing, the renowned British double agent must locate a weapons system known as ATAC, which controls Great Britain's submarines, after it is sunk on a ship in the Ionian Sea. While he must contend with a formidable foe in the villain known as Kristatos (Julian Glover), he does have the lovely and talented Melina (Carole Bouquet), the daughter of a scientist killed by Kristatos, on his side. For fans craving their old favorites, Blofeld, Moneypenny and Q all put in appearances. The stunts come fast and furious, most notably a breathtaking race down a ski slope at the film's opening. Academy Award Nominations: Best Original Song ("For Your Eyes Only").
James Bond trades in his stylish wardrobe and trademark fancy gadgets for an action-packed mission filled with stunts, chases and elaborate set pieces. Sent to recover a secret government apparatus hidden somewhere at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea, 007 has to contend with hungry sharks as well as an array of enemy agents.
