"Both my parents died tragically in childbirth."
I think Roger Moore had an absolute blast making this film – his character, Ffolkes, is such a quirky and unusual action star (he is a misogynist who loves cats and does a needlepoint to help him think) and has some lines which were perfect for the incumbent James Bond, one who was often provided with quips and zingers.
Away from Roger Moore, I quite liked Anthony Perkins as the villain, James Mason (who is always good value for money) was very good as the stuffy Admiral who is part of the British government's hostage rescue mission, and it's directed with skill.
The film moves along at a good pace, never dragging or feeling baggy, and was a great way to spend 100 minutes on a Saturday evening. Although it isn't the greatest action movie ever made, it's a really enjoyable watch and I didn't want much more from it than that.
