The original plan was to shoot in Iran. This was partly inspired by Albert Lamorisse's The Red Balloon (1956). The start of the Yom Kippur War was an instrumental reason in calling off the idea of filming there. Southeast Asia was the new location chosen. See more »
Absolute zero cannot be "maintained" since it has never been "reached". Even if that were permissible in the movie, it wouldn't require a man's body temperature to raise it, as the temperature of the surrounding air would already have done the trick. See more »
Bond is back and he has to out smart a hit-man who charges $1,000,000 a shot (Christopher Lee) is the man with the golden gun, and he has the usual delusions of world domination and a thirst to pit himself against the best spy in the business.
The plot in this one does have its holes and the script has a little too much silliness and comedy to make it a classic bond film, but if it's entertainment your after then this hits the mark without question, and it still has one of the most awesome car stunts ever.
It's not the best in the series, but there's enough here to entertain you, and Christopher Lee makes a great Bond bad guy.
