An inflation-fighter Bond dumps the giant sets and mechanical gizmos of recent years in favour of stunts galore, courtesy of John Glen, who was second unit director on earlier 007s. Worth a try, but without his Art Dept clothes on, Bond is like the naked Emperor. Look, Ma, no plot and poor dialogue, and Moore really is old enough to be the uncle of those girls.
