Cast & Crew
Movies / TV
Does Michael Sheen know his own career? Watch the video. Title: The Man with the Golden Gun James Bond is sent to stop a diabolically brilliant heroin magnate armed with a complex organisation and a reliable psychic tarot card reader. James Bond investigates the hijacking of British and Russian submarines carrying nuclear warheads, with the help of a K. Agent, whose lover he killed. James Bond investigates the mid-air theft of a space shuttle, and discovers a plot to commit global genocide.
The Film: Lousy, quite frankly. Throws away a brilliant premise and the best villain of the James Bond series. A decent if uninspiring first act slides into an utterly shambolic second. Clarity is left by the wayside, dignity jettisoned swiftly after. The Villain: Destroys the received wisdom that a Bond film is measured by its antagonist. Francisco Scaramanga is the baddie benchmark. Christopher Lee deserved better.
