Moonraker (1979) Movie Review

Moonraker (1979) Movie Review - Quick Movie Reviews by Haris

In this movie James Bond investigates the mid-air hijacking of a space shuttle and discovers a plot to commit global genocide via a rare plant from the Amazon rain-forest. Or something… I don’t even know… The plot is equally stupid as in The spy who loved me (1977). Again, I don’t care. As far as entertainment goes, I had so much fun watching this movie. This is the funniest James Bond movie yet. There is a lot of intentional humor and some unintentional humor. It felt like I was watching an Austin Powers or Johnny English movie at one point.

It also felt like an unofficial Star Wars movie. Yeah, this movie takes place in space and features a long laser gun shootout final battle, like, at least 20 minutes long. If you’re looking for quality in this movie, there’s nothing to recommend. The action scenes which I usually praise in these movies are well filmed in this movie as usual, but, they aren’t that memorable this time around. Most of them are hilarious. If you want to see some entertaining shit, this is the movie to watch. Seriously, take a shot of whiskey anytime something insane happens in this movie, I promise you that you’ll get blackout drunk before the climax of this movie.

Entertainment: 9/10*

Overall quality: 5/10
