I’m the critic that didn’t love this film. Yeah, this movie was likable enough, but it just felt average. Plus, this one seemed to have some really bad acting in it. I really do base a lot of my love of a Bond film on three points: Who plays Bond? Is the villain good? Is the Bond girl good/cute/funny? Well, this was another Roger Moore film. I still don’t like him much. The villain is very forgettable, except for his cool underwater base of operations. I did really like the henchman Jaws. He’s a fun bad guy who really helped the film, and he’s funny even though he doesn’t speak much. The Bond girl was pretty cute but mostly unremarkable. So the whole film felt average. Missing submarines are a scary concept in real life, but the plot was just pretty so-so. I probably will forget that I saw this movie a few months from now, without the aid of a device from Q.
