No doubt one of Roger Moore's best, 4 December 2002
Author: Mika Pykäläaho ( from Järvenpää, Finland

I just recently watched "The Man with the golden gun" for the millionth time and it was day after I saw "Die another day" which I found massively disappointing. The difference between the two is just inconceivable! It's hard to believe both movies are actually part of the same series. When I watched "Die another day", most of the time I felt that I'm not even watching a Bond movie.

It was so deliriously refreshing to once again look out what a traditional, true first-rate Bond classic looks like and let me tell you: it always looks good. I can't understand people who claim "The Man with the golden gun" is one of the worst Bond films. Why the hell's that? To me it has always been one of Roger Moore's finest efforts as 007, he unfortunately started to be a bit too old anyway in his last films.

This is an extremely splendid film: entertaining, exotic and fascinating James Bond movie - just like "Live and let die". Funny, gripping and just simply irresistible and not boring for a single second. Christopher Lee's Scaramanga is certainly one of the greatest villains in a Bond movie ever. His servant Nick Nack (as played by Hervé Villechaize who sadly committed suicide 19 years later) is also one of the best of the classic sidekicks Bond's enemies has had - he's right in the company of Oddjob and Jaws. Excellent 007-adventure!
