A VIEW TO A KILL
1985, MGM/Park Circus, 131 min, UK, Dir: John Glen

In the final film in the franchise to star Roger Moore, Agent 007 goes up against wealthy industrialist and horse racer Max Zorin, who plans to corner the market on microchips by destroying Silicon Valley. Given the story's setting, Bond gets to do a bit of San Francisco sightseeing - some of it while dangling from an airship! A VIEW TO A KILL features some of the best bad guys of the entire series, with Christopher Walken as the steroid-crazed Zorin and Grace Jones as his lethal assistant May Day. Imposing as those villains are, Bond has some pretty experienced operatives in his corner, among them Patrick Macnee (John Steed from TV's “The Avengers”) and Lois Maxwell (in her final appearance as Miss Moneypenny).
