Most of the action sequences in this 1981 Bond film have been recycled from earlier entries, but if the producers haven't come up with anything startlingly new, they have managed to freshen the tone enough to give the old standards a different cast. 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. The Bond girl here, Carole Bouquet, was picked up from Luis Buñuel's That Obscure Object of Desire, and her frozen good looks are slightly too sinister for the conventional glamour part she's been given. With Topol, Julian Glover, and Lynn-Holly Johnson. 127 min.
