Trivia

Alice Cooper's "Muscle of Love" album has a song "Man With the Golden Gun" on it. The CD version includes notes claiming it was to be the theme song of the movie, but the producers opted for the version sung by Lulu instead. See more »

Goofs

Even though it is supposed to be a wax dummy, you can clearly see Al Capone blink his eyes when he fires the gun. Also, his movements are way too human-like to be a dummy. See more »

Good, but only because of Moore and Lee.
22 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

This Bond plot is probably one of the weakest, but thankfully Roger Moore and Christopher Lee turn in great performances that turn what would probably a rather average film into a pretty good one. An assasine has been seemingly sent to kill Bond, this part of the plot is good, but then there is this energy crisis plot involving this really good solar cell and other things that make this Bond of the weaker ones plot wise. Lee does a great job as the title character, but another problem with this movie is that throughout you are anticipating the showdown between Bond and the man with the golden gun and when it finally happens it is a bit of a let down. Also, the guy who played the sheriff in "Live and Let Die" is back and he is quite annoying. I still enjoy this movie though.
