Editor's NoteIn the 11th installment of the 007 series, director Lewis Gilbert delivers a visually thrilling progression in filmmaking. Roger Moore returns as dashing secret service agent James Bond. This time around Bond must investigate the theft of a space shuttle with help from beautiful CIA agent Dr. Holly Goodhead (Lois Chiles) and sexy Euro supermodel Corrine (Corrine Clery). Agent 007 discovers that genocidal maniac-millionaire Hugo Drax (Michel Lonsdale) plans to poison all of humanity from outer space and repopulate earth with only the most perfectly bred humans. A variety of traps and villains awaits Bond, including the recurring character Jaws (Richard Kiel, also featured in THE SPY WHO LOVED ME).| |Filmed in such exotic locations as Southern California, Venice, and the Amazon, Gilbert delivers the formula Bond packet of girls, gadgets, and guns. However, he also goes further, sending Agent 007 into space. MOONRAKER takes great risks in blending the spy and science fiction genres. In spite of such an unruly coupling, the film rewards viewers with its finale of climactic plot twists and stellar special effects.

Customer Reviews of Moonraker (Blu-Ray/Ultimate Edition)
It's another Bond movie with Roger Moore (my favorite Bond actor). It also has Jaws, with another great role. If you've seen a Bond movie, you know what to expect.
the movie is not bad, but it is utterly silly in the best way possible. I mean, it's not everyday you see a movie where astronauts are shot into open space, no strings attached, just to blast the hell out of each other. Jaws makes a second appearance here and not only finds a girl friend with blonde pigtails, he helps save the day with his metal molars in this movie.
