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
Adapting to the different work ethics in France, Ken Adam (Production Designer) was informed by the union leader that the crew will not work overtime. Ken Adam could not recall even one Bond Movie he designed which did not include overtime on part of the construction crew to complete the interiors. Ultimately the crew saw his designs and they decided that it was indeed worthwhile to work overtime. In fact he recalled that on Sundays they did bring their whole families. See more »
When the first four Moonrakers take off, they do so in quick succession. Before the fifth takes off, there is just enough time for Drax to consign Bond to his fate and then board it, but before the sixth, Bond and Goodhead can escape, hide, jump the crew, get into their uniforms and still make it to the shuttle in time.

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.

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.
