A View to a Kill :- Watch A View to a Kill on Youtube on Fire, A View To A Kill seems to get more than its fair share of criticism. Often it is labelled the weakest of the Bond entries, but I don’t think this is particularly true. Personally, I don’t even rate it as the poorest of Roger Moore’s Bond outings, with Moonraker and The Man With the Golden Gun standing out in my memeory as less memorable escapades than this one. The set pieces are memorable, including a parachute pursuit from the Eiffel Tower, a fire engine chase around the hilly streets of San Francisco, and an airship crash on the Golden Gate bridge. Moore looks a bit old for the part, and his sexual humour bears a greater emphasis than usual of the “dirty old man” baggage. However, he still has an easy-going charisma and good comic timing. Walken makes for a good, supremely confident villain, and is well backed by the fearsome Grace Jones. However, Tanya Roberts might be a gorgeous looker, but her Bond girl character is whining and screaming so much in this film that she eventually wears out her welcome. The theme song from Duran Duran is rather too ’80s, but the instrumental music by John Barry is stirring and dramatic. The basic feel of the movie is pure electric. The series is on a role after the rousing successes that were For Your Eyes Only and Octopussy. Both these movies had represented a maturing point in the series and the shot in the arm of suspense,action and excitement that was needed.
