No. 12 in the phenomenally durable James Bond series. For Your Eyes Only is undeniably easy on the eyes. Maybe too easy to prevent the mind from wandering and the lids from drooping. Full Review
Roger Moore has crumpled his comic-strip good looks into something approaching world-weariness, and the newfound maturity in his expression is reflected in director John Glen's style, which goes for the measured and elegant over the flashy and excessive. Full Review
Most of the time, though, For Your Eyes Only is a slick entertainment. Full Review
New York Times
For Your Eyes Only, however, looks like the work of people too smug in the belief they've got a good thing going to bother to make it interesting. It oozes unwarranted condescension. Full Review
...A truly sympathetic heroine, fetchingly portrayed by Carole Bouquet, who exhibits a humanity and emotionalism...
After 20 years, though, it's comforting to have 007 still stylishly triumphant and making the theaters safe for entertainment. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- This 12th entry in the 007 series provides no real surprises, with the exception perhaps of Roger Moore, who gets the chance to show a little more grit than usual. Full Review
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.
