Underrated James Bond Adventure. Yes, Roger Moore is too old and the Tanya Roberts is weak but Walken and Jones are great. Some great set pieces, adventure and excitement.
By.. FAR... one of...the BEST ....under RATED..bond villains... (whispers) of all time....packs with FLAVOR.
So from what I gathered A View to a Kill is mostly disliked because: Christopher Walken slaughters a lot of people in one scene, cops in San Francisco are idiots, some bad acting and poor special effects (that's subjective!), Moore is too old to play Bond (though to me he looks like a young boy when he stands next to Moneypenny). Is there anything else? I don't find it to be any better or worse that many other Bond films. I certainly don't see any reasons to call this one the worst, especially in the world where Moonraker exists.
It was enjoyable to me. The villain is fantastic, the Bond girl is likable, the plot is not overly complicated or silly. I see nothing wrong, only mindless entertainment and that's what Bond movies always were. I'd say it's underrated.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
