A fake Fabergé egg and a fellow agent's death lead James Bond to uncover an international jewel-smuggling operation, headed by the mysterious Octopussy, being used to disguise a nuclear attack on N.A.T.O. forces.
When an American space capsule is swallowed up by what they believe to be a Russian spaceship, World War 3 nearly breaks out. The British Government, however, suspect that other powers are at work as the space craft went down near Japan. S.P.E.C.T.R.E. is the force behind the theft, as James Bond discovers, but its motives are far from clear, and he must first find out where the captured space capsule is held before America and Russia initiate another world war.

This is the 5th Bond movie. SPECTRE is at it again. This time they are hijacking the spacecrafts of the two superpowers setting them up against each other. Sean Connery returns as James Bond. The great Donald Pleasence is the evil Blofeld with his white cat.
This one takes place in the far East mostly in Japan. That's one of the charm in this one as it goes into a foreign culture more deeply than just simple postcard backdrop. The plot is as outlandish as ever with a volcano rocket base. It doesn't get crazier than that.
Sadly, Sean Connery had enough with the character and the hype. After this, he quits the franchise for the first time. It's too bad because this is one of the cooler Bond movie with the Japanese influences and the ultra-cool rocket base. And there is nothing better than killing by piranha and ninjas.
