Plot Summary

James Bond has one more mission. Bond returns from his travels in the USSR with a computer chip. This chip is capable of withstanding a nuclear electromagnetic pulse that would otherwise destroy a normal chip. The chip was created by Zorin Industries, and Bond heads off to investigate its owner, Max Zorin. Zorin may only seem like a innocent guilty man, but is really planning to set off an earthquake in San Andreas which will wipe out all of Silicon Valley. As well as Zorin, Bond must also tackle May Day and equally menacing companion of Zorin, whilst dragging Stacy Sutton along for the ride. Written by simon

Trivia Sir Roger Moore said that he decided to end his run as James Bond, when he realized that Tanya Roberts' mother was younger than he was. However, Albert R. Broccoli said he wanted a younger actor for the next film, The Living Daylights (1987), and would not have kept Moore as Bond anyway. Broccoli felt that retaining Moore, who was fifty-seven, for this film had been a mistake. Contrary to what some sources have said, Moore was never offered another Bond film after this one.

Goofs When Bond and Stacy exit the burning building, there is a fire ladder leading up to the top floor, even though no firefighters are entering the building that way. Also, the firefighters seem to just stand there on the ground and watch Bond and Stacy make their way down the ladder without trying to help them in any way. It seems as though the ladder was just left there and the survivors are responsible for making their own escape. See more »

Crazy Credits Opening credits disclaimer "Neither the name 'Zorin' nor any other name or character in this film is meant to portray a real company or actual person" appears right before the gunbarrel opening sequence. It was added after producers discovered a real company run by a person named "Zoran." See more »

Max Zorin: You slept well?
