Why watch this film?
Influenced by the success of 'Star Wars', Eon Productions decided to take Roger Moore's James Bond into space - but not before stopping by Brazil. The result is one of the most delightfully cheesy Bond films ever made. Of course, the action scenes, compared to 21st century cinema, are weak, the special effects are outdated and the script of 'Moonraker' leaves something to be desired. On the other hand, the explosion of colors, exaggerations and extravagant costumes are the best within the genre. For us Brazilians, there is Bond's presence in Rio de Janeiro, traveling on the beloved Concorde, walking through the Carioca streets and still enjoying the carnival of the late 1970s - which, in itself, is a very interesting historical record. Not to mention the fight scene on the Sugar Loaf cable car, with 007 in a mortal combat (ok, disregard the clearly fake chromakey) against the villain Jaws (or, if you prefer, Steel Teeth). The final result is full of highs and lows, but if you watch it prepared to laugh at both the intentional and unintentional humor, you will be satisfied and with a nice smile on your face.
James Bond investigates the mid-air theft of a space shuttle, and discovers a plot to commit global genocide.
