Throughout this movie I thought, let Bond live and then at other times I thought they should just let him die. I have mixed emotions about this James Bond film. It has a few good parts and a great Bond-Girl (Jane Seymour) but I really didn’t connect with the heroin-dealing bad guy Kananga. I also must admit Roger Moore is one of my least favorite Bonds. The opening song is quite good and catchy, as I am singing it in my head as I am typing this. The locales are really pretty in San Monique. The voodoo element is interesting too. It’s also really cool that they spend some time in New Orleans too, as I love that city. The movie just gets a little boring at times and compared to other Bond films, it falls short. Not Odd job short, but short nonetheless.
