For starters, I think the script was written on the back of a Denneyís napkin. It was completely hokey and was just a half-assed mix of previous Bond films, but with worse stunts. Moore seems to prefer the Bond with a drink in his hand as opposed to the Bond kicking ass. So he gives a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde performance. One minute heís dead on with Bond, the next heís going through the motions.
I think thereís a point with action sequences where you have to decide whether or not you can make it even remotely realistic. In this case, they should have left out the action scenes. I understand that Bond is famous for defying reality and forcing the audience to suspend belief, but they barely even tried with this one. The VW race was very amateurish and donít even get me started on the ski slope sequence.
It also seemed that there were moments where they had nothing to do, so they thrust Bond into an action scene to get things going. The story was an afterthought and even with a Bond film, it should be that way. I've tried to give this film a fair shot, but no matter how many times I see it, I just can't put it up there with the best of the Bond films.
Commentary with John Glen and various actors: This track is better than the next one, but it still suffers from a lack of good information. Everyone gets sidetracked quite often and the track loses momentum.
Commentary with Michael G. Wilson and other crewmembers: I really think these two commentaries should have been edited into one track because thereís not enough information here to merit two separate tracks.
Deleted Scenes (3:01): These are two deleted scenes, but the total film time is about a minute and a half. The rest is the director introducing them to us. They really had no impact on the film, but itís still nice to see some more Bond.
Bond in Greece (5:56), Bond in Cortina (4:19), Neptuneís Journey (3:33): Three quick looks at Bond at different locales and some behind the scenes looks at the stars. This is very basic stuff and does nothing more than show off the cool locations.
Inside For Your Eyes Only (29:46): This is a good look at the making of the Bond film and what was going on with the franchise during its release. This is several years old now, but itís a great featurette into the Bond film and is a continuing feature on the recent releases.
There are also a series of vintage TV commercials, Storyboard Sequences and a Music Video
