North Sea Hijack ★★★½

Deep into is role as Bond, Roger Moore occasionally delved into different projects.

While this Andrew V. MacLaglen directed thriller isn't a million miles away from 007 (but a lot further than the misleading poster would have you believe) there's enough differences to make it stand on its own.

Anthony Perkins hams it up as Kramer, a nutty terrorist intent on holding two oil rigs to ransom with explosives. Unfortunately he didn't count on Ffolkes (also the name of the film outside the UK), the cat loving, woman hating, tapestry creating commando expert.

It's a daft film, but undeniably fun with James Mason's stolid Admiral and Roger Moore's delivery of some odd lines (BOTH my parents were killed in childbirth).

It's just a fun, rainy afternoon movie.
