Roger Moore's second Bond film was another hit. I enjoyed this one, especially Christopher Lee as the villainous Francisco Scaramanga. He was one of the most likable and charismatic Bond villains ever, making every scene he's in glisten with excitement. Britt Ekland was also a great Bond girl, owning her performance with the perfect blend of looks and talent. Of the Moore era, this one might be the best.
This was an even better film than the first one with Roger Moore. Moore seems to really embrace the role of Bond even more. Christopher Lee was was fantastic as the villain, Francisco Scaramanga. He was intimidating, had the greatest motive of all the villains, and even had a golden gun. Nick Nack was also a great henchman, being quite intimidating for his size. Britt Ekland was great as Mary Goodnight, becoming one of the hottest Bond Girls in my opinion. This is by far the best of the Roger Moore Bond films.
