Destructive tomfoolery on a typically grand scale, with Moore - trying on 007's white jacket for the first time - matched against a battery of colourful villains (blacks are the baddies this time) and voodoo chiles. Two hours long and anti-climactic, but Bond fans won't be disappointed.

My favourite quite simply because I adore the blaxploitation genre and this was a massive homage it. Also the Bond theme in this instance is marvellous.

A classic Bond. People love and hate Moore as Bond. I used to hate him but as I've gotten older I tend to look back at his films with more fondness. Live and Let Die is a refreshing change after the crap that was Diamonds Are Forever. Even as a Connery fan, I have no problem saying that. Anyway, I love all the campness and humour Moore brought to the role. His first outing here is arguably his best; the wisecracks enjoyably cheesy, the prolonged bus and boat chases are excellent and Yaphet Kotto makes a great villain. Also, the alligator sequence has stayed with me since I was a kid! A pure classic.
