A vengeful British spy goes rogue and sets off to unleash vengeance on a drug lord who tortured his best friend, a C.I.A. agent, and left him for dead and murdered his bride after he helped capture him.
Scaramanga is a hit-man who charges a million dollars per job. He becomes linked to the death of a scientist working on a powerful solar cell, and James Bond is called in to investigate. As he tracks down Scaramanga, he realises that he is highly respected by the killer, but will this prove to be an advantage in the final showdown? Written by

Filming began on November 6, 1973 with a double filling in for Roger Moore who wasn't scheduled to begin shooting until April, 1974. See more »
When the flying car is shown in the hangar. There is cloth hanging in front of the engine intake. The jet engine is clearly heard running, yet the cloth is not being sucked into the engine. Also as the flying car pulls out from behind the cloth, it just hangs straight back down. Clearly showing there's no exhaust coming from the engine. See more »
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.
