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.
James Bond is back for another mission and this time, he is blasting off into space. A spaceship traveling through space is mysteriously hi-jacked and Bond must work quickly to find out who was behind it all. He starts with the rockets creators, Drax Industries and the man behind the organisation, Hugo Drax. On his journey he ends up meeting Dr. Holly Goodhead and encounters the metal-toothed Jaws once again. Written by
Roger Moore arrived a few days late for the shoot in Rio due to a kidney stones attack in France. Moore had also had a renal colic attack whilst filming Live and Let Die (1973). Once arrived in Rio, he literally walked off the plane, went into make-up and hair, got fitted out, went back onto the plane, and was then filmed arriving in Rio as James Bond for the movie.

The announcement at the airport in London calls "BA flight 128 to Rio de Janeiro", but the Concorde, when it lands and passengers disembark, is an Air France plane. These are two different flights - the first Jaws' and the second being Bond's. Obviously they could not have been on the same plane or they would have seen each other, eliminating the surprise appearances later. See more »
How are we doing, Richard?
We should pass over the English coast 15 minutes ahead of time, sir.
Wow! With this load on our back, that's good going.
Just trust the RAF, sir.

THE END of "MOONRAKER" James Bond will return in "FOR YOUR EYES ONLY" See more »
This James Bond adventure from 1979 takes our beloved agent 007 to outer space after he chases the crooks all over the world. He goes there with Dr. Holly Goodhead (Lois Chines) and after them is the steel teeth Jaws (Richard Kiel) so that life in space doesn't get too boring.
Roger Moore does his job well without taking it too seriously.Humor has a big part in this movie.Moonraker is an excellent Bond adventure which is a little underrated.It has some brilliant action scenes for you to enjoy.
I really envy James Bond because he gets all the ladies and he gets to travel all over the world and in outer space.Sure his life is in danger all the time but that's what it takes to be a super agent.
If you want to see James Bond going sci-fi then this is a movie for you to watch.
