When nuclear submarines from both British and Russian fleets suddenly disappear without a trace, the two governments form a truce and pair 007 with a lovely Russian counterpart (Barbara Bach) to solve the mystery. Their investigation takes them from Cairo to the bottom of the ocean, where they meet a billionaire madman who wants to destroy the surface world and "start over" in his own private Atlantis.
My fave of the Roger Moore Bond films, with plenty of action and fabulous eye candy in the forms of Ms. Bach and Caroline Munro!

The Best Bond Movie

"This is the best Bond movie
It has all the elements you expect in a Bond picture.
Action, great special effects, a lovely Bond girl, great music, and a perfect Bond.
Roger Moore knows after two movies, exactly how he has to play bond. A though, humerous and serious Bond.
Barbara Bach is just lovely in this movie. She is beautiful and plays the russian agent Anya perfectly. The most beautiful Bond girl.
The villain, played by Curt Jurgens, is evil and a perfect adversarry.
Richard Kiel is the most rememberale Villain side-kick.
He is a perfect match for Bond, and has a nice weapon...
Talking about dropping in for a bite...
-The Best Bond movie! See it for yourself! It will enjoy you until the last minute!
The Best Bond

"This is my favourite Bond movie and I have seen them all. Here are some of its assets:
- Great locations: Egypt, Sardinia, makes you want to be there as well
- The best Bond villain: Jaws
- A sexy and intelligent Bond girl + a sexy and ruthless female villain, Naomi (her role should have been longer)
- One of the best enemy hideouts, Atlantis, a giant waterworld fortress and the inside of a huge oil tanker
- The sets inside Atlantis and the tanker don't have this cheap plastic filmset look that you have in the enemy hideouts of the earlier Connery movies
- Roger Moore delivering his strongest performance
- The gadgets are also great, especially the Lotus Esprit that also functions as a submarine
- Bond's love interest nearly is his equal in her abilities, not some Bimbo, like in many other Bond movies
All in all, a great movie, I've probably watched it dozens of times with a cask of beer and some crackers, always makes a great Bond evening"

"James Bond is assigned to foil the plans of the evil Stromberg (Curt Jürgens) to destroy the world, so that he can create an underwater utopia. As Stromberg and his criminal syndicate have targeted both the Soviets and the Americans/British, he is lucky to be teamed up with the lovely Russian agent Triple X-Anya Amosova, played by the gorgeous Barbara Bach.
Bach plays my second favourite Bond girl-and the Bond girls are ALL so exquisite that they are hard to choose between.
Bond engages with several other beauties from the Swiss Alps to the deserts of Egypt ( a scantily clad belly dancing bevy of lovelies , are one of the magnificent delights Bond comes across when visiting his Egyptian host).to the Sardinia, where Stromberg's underwater compound is based.
In this one the frightening Jaws is also introduced as Stromberg's bloodthirsty assassin, , with his metallic razor sharp fangs, which cut through metal bars and chains, the necks of several of his victims, and even a man-eating shark. Jaws also crawls out of various seeming deaths-the perfect foil to Bond, as he has appeared as Bond's nemesis in several subsequent 007 flix.
This is certainly the best of all the Roger Moore Bond's, and while Moore's over-flippant style can be irritating, the surrounding, the action and the ladies let him get away with it , in this one at least.
The theme song by Carly Simon -Nobody Does it Better- is the best Bond theme song.
