I won’t charge a million dollars to take a shot at this movie… but I will say that I really liked this one. Roger Moore was pretty funny in this one. Christopher Lee was amazing as the highly paid assassin with the Golden Gun. The whole “energy crisis” plot seemed really dumb but when they focused on the back and forth attacks between Bond and Scaramanga things got really interesting. The section with Hai Fat was really interesting too. Especially since I kept making high-fat low-fat jokes throughout the scenes. I wouldn’t say this is the gold-standard for Bond films, but an excellent villain will always help.
