User Reviews: **One of the best of the James Bond series**rnrnrnForget the dour, bland rubbish of the Daniel Craig era – Octopussy is how a James Bond film should be! **FUN!** The franchise has always been over the top ever since we saw _Sean Connery’s James Bond wearing a strap on plastic seagull hat in the classic Goldfinger_ and Octopussy continues that absurdity only this time with Roger Moore.rnrnSo anyway, here 007 is on the trail of a smuggling ring whilst also trying to stop a crazed Russian general (Steven Berkoff in an amazing performance) from starting WWIII.rnrnBeautiful looking film makes the most of the India. Some great stunt work – including a finale on top of a plane, John Barry providing a lush score, lashings of humour and a fair amount of tension – Bond disarming a nuclear weapon in a circus tent is very effective. A very _violent_ film – here, we can see Roger Moore’s 007 shooting a young Russian soldier through the forehead.rnrn_Positively shocking_! rnrnYou probably get the general idea by now that I like this one a lot. Great Bond film.rnrnrnrn- Potential Kermode
