The Man with the Golden Gun :- Watch The Man with the Golden Gun on Youtube on Fire, Coming hot on the heels of Live And Let Die, Roger Moore had already proven that James Bond could be played by an actor other than Sean Connery (George Lazenby wasn’t given a fair chance by critics or fans back in the day). Now with his second outing as the British Secret Agent, can Roger Moore solidify his place in James Bond history? I would hope so, because it took me about 10 minutes to write a plot outline engaging enough to make this entire review payoff. You see, what I failed to mention in the plot outline were the out of character moments from Moneypenny and M. The ‘no reason to explain himself’, Lieutenant Hip and the returning for no reason, J.W. Pepper. That’s only mentioning problems with characters in the film and not the plot itself, so allow me to unpack what we have so far, because it get confusing for no reason. When James Bond’s life is threatened by the deadly hit-man known only as, Scaramanga, a deadly game of cat and mouse ensures as Bond travels to various locations in Southeast Asia hoping to stop the man, before the million-dollar killer gets him. Throw in some beautiful locations, attractive Bond girls and actions scenes aplenty, and you have yourself another cracking James Bond adventure. A golden bullet with 007 engraved on is, is sent to M’s office. Bond gives us the exposition of who Scaramanga is, yet no one knows what he looks like.
