Lewis Gilbert directed, but the real auteur of the series is production designer Ken Adam, whose spectacular chrome and plastic sets define Bond's world and technological ethic. Full Review

Moonraker, the newest James Bond spectacle, is a cheerful, splashy entertainment. The curators of the Bond museum do not surpass themselves with this exhibition, the 11th in the series, but they haven't fallen down on the job either. Full Review

Rating: 7/10 -- It's easy to see why 007 purists would loathe it, yet somehow 'Moonraker's' special brand of absurdity makes for one strangely entertaining Bond adventure. Full Review

The space-age plot is spread dangerously thin, the fights all tend to slapstick, and the wanton destruction has become rather too predictable. But it's held together by likeable performances. Full Review

The predictability of Moonraker is part of the pleasure. Like most Bond adventures, Moonraker is so overstated that it is camp, and so preposterous that it's fun. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Upon reflection, I think I like it, purely as a film judged on its own merits, rather than judging it with the expectation of what film series its in... Full Review

Product Description:

In the 11th installment of the 007 series, director Lewis Gilbert delivers a visually thrilling progression in filmmaking. Roger Moore returns as dashing secret service agent James Bond. This time around Bond must investigate the theft of a space shuttle with help from beautiful CIA agent Dr. Holly Goodhead (Lois Chiles) and sexy Euro supermodel Corrine (Corrine Clery). Agent 007 discovers that genocidal maniac-millionaire Hugo Drax (Michel Lonsdale) plans to poison all of humanity from outer space and repopulate earth with only the most perfectly bred humans. A variety of traps and villains awaits Bond, including the recurring character Jaws (Richard Kiel, also featured in THE SPY WHO LOVED ME).

Filmed in such exotic locations as Southern California, Venice, and the Amazon, Gilbert delivers the formula Bond packet of girls, gadgets, and guns. However, he also goes further, sending Agent 007 into space. MOONRAKER takes great risks in blending the spy and science fiction genres. In spite of such an unruly coupling, the film rewards viewers with its finale of climactic plot twists and stellar special effects.

Plot Synopsis:

An evolution in the 007 series, MOONRAKER is the first of the Bond films to use science fiction special effects. Roger Moore reprises his role as James Bond, the charismatic British secret service agent. While investigating the disappearance of a space shuttle, Bond uncovers millionaire Hugo Drax's (Michel Lonsdale) plan to eliminate the human race, and populate the planet earth with ideal superhumans. Catapulted into outer space and assisted by sexy CIA agent Holly Goodhead (Lois Chiles), Bond battles for not only his own life, but for the fate of humanity as well.
