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's next mission sends him to the circus. A British agent was murdered and found holding onto a priceless Faberge egg. Kamal Kahn buys the egg at an auction, but Bond becomes suspicious when Kahn meets up with Russian General, Orlov. Bond soon finds out that Kahn's and Orlov's plan is to blow a nuclear device in an American Air Force Base. Bond teams up with a circus group, which are headed by the beautiful Octopussy, who is also close friend of Kahn. Will Bond be quick enough, before World War III begins?Written by
This film was the first of two James Bond films to be filmed (amongst other locations) on the Nene Valley railway near Peterborough. The second was GoldenEye (1995). See more »
A shot of a sign which says "National Art Repository" in both English and Russian has the Russian word for "art" misspelled: the fourth letter should be the Russian "u" not the Russian "ch." Also, in the word "National" the "hard sign" letter was mistakenly used instead of the "soft sign" letter. These pairs of letters do look alike, which suggests that the text was likely copied out of a dictionary erroneously. See more »
You didn't tell me there was going to be this much security.
They moved the flight up to this afternoon.
Well, we're going to have to go ahead as planned anyway.

Toro. Sounds like a load of bull.

"I'm sure the General will get a big blast out of this!" - "I know he wont be disappointed."
Excellent film that must be among the best in the series. It really feels like a genuine Bond movie. Like Broccoli & Co went all in. Top- notch action, mysterious women, eccentric villains and great locations. And Roger Moore was born to be a leading man. When Connery got worse for each film, Moore just got better. In Octopussy he is super- confident and handles both the drama and humor with ease.
