    9 / 10
    When a massive underwater craft abducts U.S. and Russian submarines, global tensions are heightened to the brink of war. In order to find the true culprit, James Bond joins forces with beautiful Russian agent Anya Amasova (Barbara Bach). Together they follow a trail that leads to Karl Stromberg (Curt Jurgens), a powerful shipping magnate who is implementing a horrific scheme for world domination. Bond struggles to foil the plot, but Stromberg has provided him with a most lethal adversary: Jaws (Richard Kiel), a seemingly indestructible steel-toothed giant. Agent 007`s adventure starts with a mountaintop ski chase that builds to one of the most amazing stunts ever filmed, then takes him to the Egyptian pyramids and under the sea.

    The magnificent, thrill-packed finale in Stomberg`s secret submarine base required the construction of the world`s largest soundstage at Pinewood Studios.

    For me, this is one of the best Bond-films, with a fantastic story and Roger Moore at his top!
