Editors Note
Note THE SPY WHO LOVED ME, the 10th film in the James Bond series, ventures not only into the depths of the ocean but into the deep topic of betrayal and morality as well, placing it among the boldest of the 007 films. James Bond (Roger Moore) is coupled with Russian agent Anya "Triple-X" Amasova (Barbara Bach) to recover stolen Soviet submarines from evil oceanographer Carl Stromberg (Curt Jurgens) and his gigantic lackey, Jaws (Richard Kiel). When Triple-X learns that Bond killed her husband on a mission in the Alps, she must overcome her selfish notions of revenge and work with 007 for the good of the world.^In addition to the Bond staple of girls and gadgetry, the film features beautifully shot footage of the Austrian Alps, Venice, and the Egyptian pyramids. Furthermore, director Lewis Gilbert uses the film to push the cinematic envelope with stunning underwater action sequences, that leave the viewer gasping for air and a vodka martini--shaken, not stirred.
Plot Summary

Reviews
ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review The Spy Who Loved Me was the first Bond movie I ever saw on the big screen and as such it carries with it warm memories...The Spy Who Loved Me raised the bar of expectations as to what Bond movies should have, especially in the way of stunts and exotic locales. From the opening ski jump off a mountain to the underwater action sequence featuring a Q converted Lotus automobile, everything about TSWLM is big, big and bigger...If I have one real problem with the film, indeed it is a problem I have with most of the films from the Moore era, it is that much of The Spy Who Loved Me just seems so dated. From the fashions to Hamlisch's score, a great deal of the film just screams '70s, to such a degree that it borderlines on camp.

ReviewSource ReelViews
Review Of Roger Moore's seven James Bond pictures, The Spy Who Loved Me stands out as the best. Stripped of the extreme silliness of The Man with the Golden Gun and packed with style, action, and wit, The Spy Who Loved Me ranks alongside the Connery Bonds as a memorable cinematic representation of Ian Fleming's superspy...The Spy Who Loved Me has no shortage of gadgets. These include noxious cigarettes, ski pole projectiles, and, most impressive of all, a Lotus Esprit that swims rather than sinks. But such toys are only part of 007's appeal. Bond films attract audiences because they're solid fun -- light, uncomplicated entertainment that requires no more from a viewer than that he or she sits back and enjoys. Despite the recycled plot, The Spy Who Loved Me deserves its popularity as one of Bond's most engaging outings.
