James Bond is thrust into one of his most riveting adventures in this jam-packed free-for-all of outrageous stunts, passionate encounters and exciting confrontations. In perhaps the best performance of his career, Roger Moore portrays Agent 007 with lethal determination.
After a ship is sunk off the coast of Albania, the world’s superpowers begin a feverish search for its valuable lost cargo: the powerful ATAC system, which will give the bearer unlimited control over Polaris nuclear submarines. As Bond joins the search, he suspects the suave Kristatos (Julian Glover) of seizing the device. The competition between nations grows more deadly by the moment, but Bond finds an ally in the beautiful Melina Havelock (Carole Bouquet), who blames Kristatos for the death of her parents. The non-stop action includes automobile chases, thrilling underwater battles, and even a breathtaking tour over razor-sharp coral reefs. But all this is merely a prelude to 007’s cliffhanging assault on a magnificent mountaintop fortress.
With unforgettable characters, seductive locales, and go-for-the-jugular suspense, For Your Eyes Only is a mesmerizing action-thriller of the highest order.
