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.
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.
Agent James Bond 007 is on a mission which includes a media tycoon, his former lover and a Chinese agent. Elliot Carver wants to complete his global media empire, but in order for this to work, he must achieve broadcasting rights in China. Carver wants to start up World War III by starting a confrontation over British and Chinese waters. Bond gains the help of Wai Lin on his quest to stop him, but how will Bond feel when he meets up with his former lover, who is now Carver's wife. Written by
An alternate version of the briefing-in-the-car scene was filmed where the characters drink cocktails during the high-speed ride. The cocktail references were removed by using close-ups of the actors. See more »
The fleet as seen is missing the Royal Navy's most powerful units, the aircraft carriers, of which at least one would almost certainly have been sent along with any naval buildup. Further, none of the ships present choose to deploy their helicopters for recon or assault on the stealth ship. See more »
Our man's in position on the center camera. It's like a terrorist supermarket. Chinese Long March Scud, Panther AS-565 attack helicopter, a pair of Russian mortars, and the crates look like American rifles. Chilean mines. German explosives. Fun for the whole family.

After viewing the TND special Edition DVD, I can honestly say this is the best overall DVD to date. The disk is packed with extras...Trailers, Sheryl Crow Video, Gadgets, Bond historical movie and of course the feature film in a variety of formats. The interface of controls is also a special treat. The movie gets an 8/10...for Bond fans and action fans alike. A must have in everyone's library. On the whole 10/10 well worth the extra money. *** A great choice for Demo'ing a home theatre***
