Was there ever a James Bond like this one? Oh, there were better Bond stories, no doubt, but I do doubt there were any more entertaining than this one.In "Octopussy," we get more of an Indiana Jones-type adventure story than the usual spy farce. In fact, there is so much adventure in here it gets tiring, to be frank. It's almost too much....but it is a lot of fun along the way.The best part of the film isn't the wild adventure, either: it's the humor. This has more laughs in it - stupid and clever - than any Bond film I can recall.Roger Moore, Maud Adams, Louis Jordan, <more>
Kristina Wayborn, Steven Berkoff and Kabir Bedi must have had a lot of fun - and been worn out - making this film. By the way, itt's always interesting to see the intriguing Adams.This and "Goldfinger" are my two favorites of the Bond series, and I'm glad to see so many others here share that opinion.
As a Bond fan for more than 20 years, I must admit I love all Bond films. But OCTOPUSSY is the best of all them all; it's also my favorite movie. Roger Moore is in top form, John Glen's direction is excellent, the plot is complex and rich, and John Barry's music is wonderful. Moreover, Louis Jourdan is a beautiful baddie, Maud Adams is one of the most interesting leading ladies, and Steven Berkoff is amazingly frightening. The cinematography is very impressive, as is the production design by Peter Lamont.What more can I say? OCTOPUSSY is skillfully made and astonishingly thrilling <more>
from its breathtaking precredits sequence to the very end. Nobody does it better!!
My favourite film - and it should be yours, too. (by Dean Kilbride)
Ah, what is there to say about this film, the mother of all James Bond films, and the mother of all cinema? I don't care what film scholars may say - for me, OCTOPUSSY is the greatest film ever made. The teaser is fantastic; the cinematography is a marvel; the henchman is sane for once ; it has the greatest title in motion-picture history; the best plot in motion-picture history; the most sustained suspense in motion-picture history the tension reaches a head at the circus-tent bomb disarming sequence, and, by God, this circus sequence is one of the greatest pieces of film in history ; <more>
golden Easter eggs; fake horse hind-quarters; brief nudity; sex; guys falling off of motorcycles; stunt chickens; fantastic one-liners; an auction sequence that ranks as cinema's greatest auction sequence not much competition, though ; comedic Hindus; backgammon; fire-eaters; a symbolic Shangri-La also an island populated entirely with women ; old-man jokes; a monstrous quasi-'70s safari suit; a Tarzan yell; a face-humping octopus, a buzz-saw yo-yo; Indians covered with feathers; a plastic crocodile; a gorilla suit; car thefts; monkey attacks; clown antics; and Roger Moore clinging to the exterior of in an in-flight 'plane.But what REALLY makes this film are its two leads: Roger Moore and Louis Jourdan. Both at the image of Cool with a captial "C": Rog is in near-top-form only his age lets him down , and Jourdan is a marvel to behold. Treasure these two performances like you would a can of dog-food in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. You just can't go wrong with OCTOPUSSY. No Siree... an easy 10/10. Miss it at your own peril.
This is Roger Moore's 6th Bond film and you can see that he has aged a bit since For your eyes only. The plot is rather nonsense, hard to follow and, like a lot of Bond films, not to be taken seriously. But for this film, the eight stars are for the sheer energy and work the crew have put into this film to make it funny, exciting and with heaps of stunts and action work. Roger Moore still has his great class from when he started in 1973 ten years before this film. Octopussy is based in India,with heaps of lovely big wide city shots with a scene showing India's jungle as well. The <more>
acting is fine, you don't need to worry about that and there are a few funny one-liners and jokes to keep the story from being to serious. All in all, take the film with a pinch of salt, its a bit of fun.... and a great popcorn film!
Many criticized this film at the time of its release with comments like" Moore's tongue in cheek humor has turned Bond's style into brainless films , full of silly jokes, with no plot or character development. Just look at that annoying jungle sequence with Moore parodying Tarzan." OK I concede this scene was a dreadful idea. But its minor flaws aside, Octopussy is, in my opinion, one the greatest Bond movies to date. What makes this movie extremely compelling is its adventurous storyline, which successfully combines the classic 70's spy thriller convoluted plot with <more>
amazing, yet surrealistic, action sequences, more likely to be part of a comic book but a good one, indeed such as the jet escape at the beginning, which is definitely the BEST pre-credit scene in the whole series. Bond moves from England to India, and then to Germany, while he tries to find out the truth in a mysterious conspiracy involving a stolen Faberge egg and... Well, it actually doesn't make sense ...but the individual sequences are great: 009's death, the purchase of the egg at Sotheby's, Bond and Khamal first encounter at the casino, the night assault on Octopussy's palace... and that lovable seduction scene, with these memorable lines: "We are two of the kind, there are vast rewards for a man of your talents willing to take risks / I am not for hire / Naturally you do it for queen and country, with the praise on your head. I have no country and no praise on my head... she leaves the room , Bond follows her and kisses her, replying, you were right, we are two of the kind" Ins't it delightful?But the pleasures Octopussy delivers don't end here. Louis Jourdan plays a glamorous, icy, double-dealing villain, perfectly balancing ruthlessness and elegance. He gets this great line" Mr. Bond, you have the nasty habit of surviving", almost comparable to Goldfinger's "Do you expect me to talk? No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die" And stunningly beautiful Maud Adams gets the leading role she deserved, since she's probably the most seductive and cool of all Bond girls.And the ending gag is wonderful as well, successfully capturing the film's essence. It isn't just Bond kissing the girl again, but reminds us of the fantasy world we have lived in for two hours. I still remember what a good time I had when I saw this movie for the first time. You cannot miss this one.
"Octopussy", the 13th James Bond movie, is Roger Moore's best 007 picture. This is a very entertaining adventure with some excellent performances from the cast. "Octopussy" takes 007 to India and Germany were he gets in way over his head trying to avenge the death of a fellow agent by stopping some seriously nasty jewelry smugglers who were involved in the death of agent 009. Moore gives his best performance as Bond, and he's surrounded by a terrific cast. Maud Adams Octopussy and Kristina Wayborn Magda are wonderful as the Bond women; Louis Jourdan Kamal Khan <more>
and Kabir Bedi Gobinda are excellent as two of the main villains. All the other actors in "Octopussy" are cast to perfection except one: Steven Berkoff goes way over-the-top in his portrayl of the third villain, Soviet General Orlov. This character is just too silly here, and I'd wish the writers would have taken this character out. His prescene mars what would have made this a perfect film. However, this character doesn't appear in the film as much as the other two villains and that's good. Berkoff played a much better villain in "Beverly Hills Cop", which came out a year-and-a-half after this. Here, he overacts. Aside from that, "Octopussy" is one of the best James Bond movies ever made. And, Desmond Llewelyn gives one of his funniest performances here as gadgetmeister Q. Lots and lots of fun.***1/2 out of four
Bond had to catch that train... (by Nazi_Fighter_David)
'Octopussy' begins at an East German circus, where 'a man in a clown suit' is chased through a dark wood by two circus knife-throwing experts The clown eventually gets a dagger in his back, but survives long enough to drop a fake Fabergé Easter Egg at the feet of the British ambassador The clown is actually 009 in disguise, who is investigating a smuggling ring that uses carnivals and circuses for cover But the plot is much more grave than that There is a rebellious Russian general called Orlov, assuming a fortuitous atomic explosion on an American Air Force Base in <more>
West Germany Orlov's connection is an exiled Afghan prince Kamal Khan , who is willing to help the Soviet general smuggle his deadly A-bomb into West Germany in exchange for Kremlin most remarkable jewels James Bond enters the case, in London, to investigate the death of 009 He attends a sale at Sotheby's where a priceless super green egg used by Czar Nicholas in 1897 is auctioned There he first sees Kamal Khan and his lady friend, Magda Aware that Khan will get the Imperial Egg to fulfill some unknown but obviously vital purpose, 007 actually bids against the exiled Afghan prince, raising its market value over the top Although Khan eventually outbids him, Bond is clever enough to switch the real Fabergé egg with a perfect replica Convinced that Khan is somehow mixed up in 009's murder, Bond is soon sent to India to find out why 009 was murdered Bond remains the sophisticated man with a price on his head He pays a surprise visit to an island exclusively populated by attractive women He seems to like 'eggs, preferably Fabergé and dice, preferable loaded.' He maneuvers the world's smallest jet, and swings through the high trees to someone else's tunes He orders a ferocious beast to sit, and creates a spontaneous mass action by flinging 'hard currency' in the air... In a crucial moment, he appears to have a 'very good memory for faces and figures, survives a series of throwing knives, and gets caught on a train tracks He follows a plane on horseback for a terrific mid-air fight sequence Maud Adams' Octopussy serves little purpose in the story taking a backseat to Kamal Khan's disloyalty Nevertheless she is a statuesque resourceful woman living with her stupendous sexy acrobats on a floating palace, developing a talent for illegal activities Christina Wayborn's Magda actually steals the show from Maud Adams Magda is by far the prettiest of Kamal's friends exposing a 'little Octopussy' tattoo on her lower back Her dramatic exit from 007's bedroom certainly must rank up as one of the best memorable escape in any Bond movie Louis Jourdan brings poetic elegance to a treacherous character He is quite sure that Bond is 'indeed, a very rare breed soon to be made extinct.'Kabir Bedi plays the villain Gobinda, with strong hands that can pulverize so easily a pair of dice Steven Berkoff plays Orlov, the wonderful Russian villain who surely is leaving the way clear for a full-scale Russian invasion of Europe With John Barry beautiful score; the snake charmer playing the 'James Bond' theme; the disturbed fakir resigning his bed of nails; Bond climbing at a steep angle of an engaging décolletage; John Glen's 'Octopussy' is exotic, lush, very enjoyable and highly entertaining
Typical 007 silliness with a dash of intensity (by pyrocitor)
After somewhat of a backfired attempt at returning the Bond series which had descended to rampant silliness to a coldly serious polar opposite in For Your Eyes Only, director John Glen skilfully melded a more serious and visceral tone with a return to the more light-hearted Moore touch. The result was Octopussy, which, despite its eyebrow-raising title, proves to be one of Moore's strongest outings, excelling on all the fronts which made the Bond series a skyrocketing success in the first place.When viewing Octopussy in comparison to the Bond series at a whole the light-hearted Moore <more>
touch is undeniable, but the film's moments of gritty intensity stand out as all the more surprising in contrast with the more tongue in cheek exterior - a scene with assassins chasing Bond's fellow agent through dark woods is unusually gripping and visceral. Similarly, the film's subject matter remains far more grounded in reality than the standard grandstanding villainous world domination, with Bond's foray into the world of art forgery rapidly uncovering a plot regarding secret Russian border arms dealings and Cold War terrorism, leading for some intriguing topical political ruminations. The sturdy script perfectly balances witty humour with grim seriousness, though certain moments of distinctly overdone silliness the double-taking camel comes to mind come across as wince-worthy and out of place in a film of otherwise such staunch quality. Visually the film excels, as the lush Indian locations and skilled cinematography make for a more varied and visually sumptuous Bond outing, well complimented by John Barry's sweeping score. Furthermore, in the contemporary age of CGI bloated blockbusters, Octopussy continues the 007 franchise tradition of being a testament to practical stunt work, with a series of superb action set pieces and chase sequences - the pre-credits plane chase is typical Moore silliness but exhilarating all the same, and later showdowns on top of a moving train, through the Indian jungle and atop a moving plane cement Octopussy as one of the most sturdily action packed Bond films. The uncommonly strong cast, full of memorable character players add to the enjoyment and overall quality of the film. Despite unquestionably starting to look his age 56, portraying a character allegedly in his late 30s , Roger Moore one more captures his typical suave 007 charm, with a touch more of an introspective undercurrent, making his incarnation of the character more interesting in the midst of the superficial silliness. As the mysterious titular character, Maud Adams proves uncommonly dignified and a surprising strong dramatic female lead for the series. Louis Jourdan is cold, smooth and quietly menacing as villainous aristocrat Kamal Khan, and Kristina Waybourn gives a rather flat performance but is typically aesthetically pleasing as his seductive assistant. Kabir Bedi fills out the requisite "intimidating villainous sidekick" role in a particularly chilling and effective fashion. Unfortunately, character actor Steven Berkoff toes the line of over the top hysteria in a rather dated even at the time of the film's release portrayal of a fanatical Russian general. However it is wonderful to see yet more charming appearances from Desmond Llewellyn, Lois Maxwell and Walter Gotell as the irrepressible gadget specialist Q, consistently flirting secretary Moneypenny and kindly, wry Russian general Gogol respectively, as well as Robert Brown's debut in the role of MI6 head M after the tragic passing of Bernard Lee. A strong script, sumptuous locations, plenty of brilliantly executed action sequences and some quality casting make Octopussy one of Moore's most consistently impressive Bond outings, for those willing to forgive the occasional eye rolling moment of out of place silliness. While not one of the most iconic Bond films, Octopussy certainly stands out as a uniformly laudable piece of work, one which merits seeing by any fans of the series or those who enjoy their action and intrigue with a healthy dose of suave wit, 007 style. -8/10
009 is fatally wounded in East-Berlin, but he still manages to go to the British embassy in the city, where he falls dead. He had a golden egg in his hand, which is worth a lot of money. But the egg is a fake and the genuine one will be sold at an auction. Roger Moore as James Bond is sent in to investigate, and he soon tracks the egg down to Kamal Khan and a mysterious lady called Octopussy. Most of the movie takes place in the former West- and East-Germany, and India. The actionscenes are as always spectacular and well directed, and James Bond has many jokes up his sleeve. An excellent <more>
