The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)

The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)

Directed by: Lewis Gilbert

Starring: Roger Moore, Barbara Bach, Curd Jürgens

Oh good, more nautical spy action. I can’t be the only one who thinks that underwater fight scenes are less exciting than watching paint dry, I completely refuse to accept that. It’s easy to underestimate the greater movie-going public in a lot of ways, but the two things they’re always picky about are exciting action and sexy ladies (and thus it’s not surprising that this series has had more than twenty entries).

A crazy guy named Stromberg wants to build a perfect city under the sea (which looks a lot like the Legion of Doom from that old Superfriends cartoon), so James Bond has to stop him. Oh, he has to stop him because he wants to destroy the rest of the world, I should’ve mentioned that. James Bond doesn’t go around keeping people from building weird houses just because the guys are weird (though it could be seen as preventative action in his line of work).

The title refers to Bond’s main love interest in the film, who is a lady Russian spy and they start out against each other and of course end up in bed together. Also of course, this takes about two scenes, because that’s the slowest James Bond works when it comes to seducing the dames.
