Live And Let DieBBBB

(out of 5)


makes his debut as agent 007 James Bond in this exciting adventure. After several British agents are murdered at various places around the world, London headquarters send Bond to New York to find out the reason behind the assassination. The trail leads our hero to the Caribbean where the leader of a small island () is looking to take over drug smuggling in the United States.  It’s a fun ride, with doing a lovely job as the film’s main Bond girl, a psychic whose abilities are lost when she loses her virginity (and since when does Bond need to know the future? Naturally, he relieves her of the burden of both gifts). Director Guy Hamilton, who had been responsible for the terrific Goldfinger, takes a more humorous approach to the material, laden with action scenes and nifty gadgets in place of the character-driven, sleekly stylish Connery films. The result is very enjoyable, highlighted by Paul McCartney’s terrific theme song, which is performed even more memorably by in the film.
