A terrible end to Roger's tenure as Bond - James Bond: A View to A Kill review by TB

Spoiler Alert

I so wish Roger hadn't agreed to star in this film. This is literally the "one last job that goes wrong" scenario, but a million times worse.

This is a film with all the usual components in place, (stunts, locations, beautiful women, crazy megalomaniac,) but nothing works, at all, in any way.

Christopher Walken, who you'd expect would ham it up perfectly, just doesn't fit and is in the wrong film. The story is risible, stupid and so far-fetched I think the cast themselves can't believe what they have been asked to take part in.

So much has been directed at Roger that I almost don't want to add to it. He is and always will be my favourite Bond. He still has the glint in his eye, the ridiculous smile of "This is great fun, come and enjoy it with me." But he is just too old. He should have stepped back after For Your Eyes Only, or definitely after Octopussy. It's a shame, but for me, he just shouldn't have been in it. Even he admitted as much later on: "I was only about 400 years too old for the part!"

There is however one saving "grace," and that is Grace Jones. She is absolutely brilliant. In the stale film she's in, she electrifies every scene. Although she was apparently a nightmare to work with, on screen you just can't get enough of her.

I so wish this was a film the calibre of The Spy Who Loved Me, for Roger to be given the send off he deserved. But it is what it is. Watch it, then immediately put on the TSWLM or Live and Let Die to remind yourself of how good the best actor to ever play Bond was.
