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.
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

Immediately after James Bond and J.W. Pepper flip their car over the river, Pepper is seen falling and rolling around on a solid grey surface that does not match the interior of the car. In the next shot from inside the car, he is stretched flat from the front to the rear on top of differently patterned upholstery. 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.
