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.
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.
James Bond is back again and his new mission is to find out how a Royal Navy Polaris submarine holding sixteen nuclear warheads simply disappears whilst on patrol. Bond joins Major Anya Amasova and takes on a a web-handed mastermind, known as Karl Stromberg, as well as his henchman Jaws, who has a mouthful of metal teeth. Bond must track down the location of the missing submarine before the warheads are fired. Written by
Producer Albert R. Broccoli wanted Lois Chiles to play the part of Russian agent Anya Amasova. Upon talking to her agent, it was discovered that Chiles had retired temporarily, upset by criticism she had received, and was taking acting lessons. Chiles would become the next Bond girl in Moonraker (1979) after sharing a seat next to director Lewis Gilbert. See more »
Agent Amasova refers to herself as a member of the Russian Army. In 1977, there was no such thing. Before 1991, the army presiding over Russia was known as the "Soviet Army." See more »
"THE END of THE SPY WHO LOVED ME JAMES BOND will return in FOR YOUR EYES ONLY" - though in fact the next film in the series was switched to Moonraker in light of the success of sci-fi movie Star Wars. Thus Moonraker went unannounced and For Your Eyes Only was promised twice. For the other incidence in the series of the next film being announced in error, see Octopussy. See more »
This is one of Roger Moore's best turns as James Bond. It has one of the best plots, the best villians, and one of the best Bond girls...Barbara Bach as agent XXX. Submarines are being somehow hijacked and it is up to Bond to find out by whom. Meanwhile, Agent XXX must find out who stole a Russian sub. They start out working against each other, but after awhile they pull their resources and work together. This Bond flick features a great ski chase, a battle on a train, car chase and good finale. Also, Richard Kiel, plays the henchman Jaws and does a pretty good job considering he has no lines.
