Europe BEWARE !
Simon Harold | Cambridgeshire | 06/02/2010

"I orderd this item for its lovely steel packaging , and waited 2 and a half weeks only to be VERY, VERY miffed that this 30 year old film for some stupid reason is Region A ...
There are NO details of this information from any of the sellers vending this Blu-Ray , and I am very puzzled to why AMAZON felt that the U.S. should have this addition packaging and not share it with the rest of the world.
So , I have a lovely collectable case , and now have to buy the dam moive again over here in this backward counrty just to please the film company. All for the reason that a 32 year old movie has to be encoded one way, incase the other side of planet Earth gets ripped off before the other...
Well done "United Artist" , I don't think I'll bother buying any more of your films and just tape them from the TV instead !!
Europe beware , do not buy this unless you have a region free Blu-Ray player , (like I wish I had..)"

"Not the worst Bond, but very close. Moonraker looks great in blu-ray, but as the saying goes, you can polish a turd but it'll still be crap.

Having seen every Bond film many times, some of them many dozens, I feel confident in saying, this one sucks. It was great the week it came out and I was a kid in the thrall of all things Star Wars-ish, but that's who this film was made for: pre-teens who have never read a Fleming Bond book and don't understand what this character is meant to be.

Here, Bond is pure cartoon. Other reviewers feel this is better than Live And Let Die and Golden Gun, but I say, not even close. Those two are campy but fun; this one is merely campy and stupid. Terrible script, jokes so bad they're not even wryly funny, and on. I hadn't seen this one since the 80s and realized why: it is indeed not worth watching except for Bond completists. The scenery here is lovely in blu-ray, but I can watch travel shows in HD if that's all I want.

Moore is obviously bored and as bad a Bond here as Brosnan ever was, maybe worse. But what to expect from a film that was, according to the producers (on the decent extras doc, the only worthwhile thing here), a complete Star Wars exploitation flick? Nothing, and that's what we get.

I would watch the first five Bond films a dozen times each before I'd get bored enough to watch ten minutes of this, and then only the first ten, as they're the only remotely decent thing here.

I love Bond films when they're smart and fun; Moonraker is neither, and blu-ray in some ways only highlights how cheesy this movie really is."
