Academy Awards 1981 - Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award
Rating: 2/5 -- The picture can't quite shake off the increasingly silly legacy which had mired the franchise in the Roger Moore era. Full Review
Rating: 8/10 -- This is the one of the better stripped down Bond films. It's not flashy, the villains are grounded and Moore dials his take on 007 down significantly. Full Review
Lyles' Movie Files
No. 12 in the phenomenally durable James Bond series. For Your Eyes Only is undeniably easy on the eyes. Maybe too easy to prevent the mind from wandering and the lids from drooping. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- Gone are the big gadgets and huge set pieces. What we get instead are some decent car chases, fist fights, and practical stunts. The result is a pretty satisfying Bond entry. Full Review
Film Geek Central
Most of the time, though, For Your Eyes Only is a slick entertainment. Full Review
New York Times
One of the most thoroughly enjoyable of the 12 Bond pix [to date] despite fact that many of the usual ingredients in the successful 007 formula are missing. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Some really good set pieces and some fun new characters round out a good entry into the Bond series, even if it does suffer from a bit of an identity crisis. Full Review
Roger Moore makes his fifth appearance as 007 in this, the twelfth Bond film. In this outing, the renowned British double agent must locate a weapons system known as ATAC, which controls Great Britain's submarines, after it is sunk on a ship in the Ionian Sea. While he must contend with a formidable foe in the villain known as Kristatos (Julian Glover), he does have the lovely and talented Melina (Carole Bouquet), the daughter of a scientist killed by Kristatos, on his side. For fans craving their old favorites, Blofeld, Moneypenny and Q all put in appearances. The stunts come fast and furious, most notably a breathtaking race down a ski slope at the film's opening. Academy Award Nominations: Best Original Song ("For Your Eyes Only").
James Bond trades in his stylish wardrobe and trademark fancy gadgets for an action-packed mission filled with stunts, chases and elaborate set pieces. Sent to recover a secret government apparatus hidden somewhere at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea, 007 has to contend with hungry sharks as well as an array of enemy agents.
