Roger Moore again stars as James Bond.

In this film, Bond is sent to rescue a highly secret communications device which is called A.T.A.C.

This top secret system disappeared when a British spy ship was sunk, and it puts Bond into a rush because they it seems that the Russians are also trying to find the device.

Complicating matters even more is the fact that Bond is now getting the help of a beautiful woman named Melina (Carole Bouquet) after her Greek millionaire father is killed by an unknown assassin.

Bond and Melina constantly cross paths on this mission and she actually saves Bond on several occasions. This is an interesting 007 movie, but it can't hold a candle to many of the ones that came before it. It's got plenty of action and adventure, but sometimes I noticed that there were a few missed opportunities.

I believe that the most remembered thing from this film by more fans is the opening title song "For Your Eyes Only" sung by the gorgeous Sheena Easton. It also is nice to see so many faces from early British horror films in the cast.

Everything else aside, if you're a Bond fan as I am then you'll enjoy this entry and find it a passable time killer. The rest of the cast includes Topol, Lynn Holly Johnson, Julian Glover and Lois Maxwell.
