New entry with an exceptional villain , Scaramanga , very well played by Christopher Lee

This exciting ninth Bond entry gets the greatest villain named Scaramanga , an awesome Christopher Lee , here's his biography : he was born in a circus , his father was ringmaster and mother a English snakes charmer . He was a spectacular trick-shot artist when ten and a local Rio gunman at 15 . The KGB trained him in Europe where he became an overworked and underpaid assassin . He went independent in the late 50s , his current price : one million dollars a hit . No photograph on file and unknown domicile but he does have on distinguishing feature,however : a superfluous papilla and mammary gland,a third nipple . He always uses a golden bullet , hence ¨Man with the golden gun¨ . He sends a golden bullet to MI6 with number on 007 and a note requesting special delivery to Bond , it's initialled with a ¨S¨ and Scaramanga's fingerprints were on it . Scaramanga tries the death of 007 , face to face , a duel between titans : The golden gun against Walther gun . James Bond is assigned to retrieve a piece of equipment named Solex that can be used for a device to create the sun's energy . Bond explains when he kills it's under specific orders of government and those he kills are themselves killers .

Roger Moore is a sympathetic and magnificent Bond , he earns in irony , suavity and smoothness . In an interview Moore tells about the shooting : ¨It looks a paradise on the screen but it was terrible hot,the entire unit had boils because you could never take a shower . It was uncomfortable ,it looks romantic and then they went over Macao . We're shooting all those scenes of gambling and so that's all go over there and we've got tables going over there with the Blackjack and he made quite money at the gambling table during the five months of shooting¨ .

The film contains spectacular fights , the lieutenant Hip's nieces were students of the karate school , the scene was played for laughs , but the women cast were Tae-Kwon-do champions and very accomplished athletes . The struggles were carefully choreographed and performed like a dance routine requiring each participant to hit their mark at the correct time . Film is made by Eon Productions Limited on location in Hong Kong , Macau , Thailand and Pinewood Studios , London , England . The atmosphere is faithful to the actual location but the interiors on a set at Pinewood Studios . The motion picture was well directed by Guy Hamilton .

One of the better Roger Moore Bond movies, but not the best of the franchise-still a solid movie

The Man With the Golden Gun is a fun James Bond movie. While not my favourite of the Bond franchise, it is one of the better Bond movies with Roger Moore in the title role. The film does have its slow parts, the plot isn't quite as tight as it could have been and the script isn't quite as well constructed as previous Bond outings due to some of the slapstick humour that didn't quite work. On the plus side, it is fun and is better than its reputation certainly. It is hugely benefited by the beautiful exotic locations, and Maud Adams is stunning here. So is Britt Eckland. The stunts are neatly executed, and the performances are brisk and solid. Roger Moore doesn't quite have the charisma and flair of Sean Connery, but gives a convincing enough portrayal of our favourite special agent, that makes Geoge Lazenby think "Now I know where I went wrong". Scaramanga is one of the more interesting Bond villains and is played with crisp efficiency by the majestic Christopher Lee, and Herve Vilechaize is certainly a scene stealer as henchman Nick Nack. And the music is outstanding. Overall, a very good movie, that is well worth watching for the locations and Lee's performance. 7/10 Bethany Cox

A Crack At The Champ

About halfway through watching The Man With The Golden Gun I realized that Ian Fleming just might have gotten his inspiration for the novel that this film is based on from Ed Wood. If you remember the gizmo that the aliens were trying to stop the humans from developing was a device that would convert energy from solar light. An absolutely unheard of thing at the time except from the fertile imagination of Ed Wood in Plan Nine From Outer Space. Of course The Man With The Golden Gun is done with a lot more dollars and lots more style than poor Ed Wood's masterpiece.

An international killer named Scaramanga played by Christopher Lee who worked mostly for the Communists, but now freelances at a million dollars a contract wants the device. But he also wants a crack at another guy whom he feels is his only competition in the killing field. None other than Roger Moore as 007. So not only does he steal the device and murder its developer Richard Loo in the process, but he also kidnaps Bond girl Britt Eklund and that's always an inducement for James Bond to go into the path of danger.

Lee has another score to settle with Bond, it seems as though Bond went and Bondified his mistress Maud Adams. That is completely unacceptable.

It's a James Bond film which follows the accepted parameters that James Bond films usually do. One thing that was different was that Roger Moore did not rely on the usual gadgets that British Intelligence provides in most films. Just as well because it does come to a battle of wits between two well matched opponents.
