Moonraker ★½

People say that the James Bond you grow up with is the only real James Bond for you, and I definitely have a soft spot for Roger Moore. But I just can’t abide the revisionist view that his movies were any good. Not a single one of them holds up, including “Moonraker,” a film which metes out its overlong, meandering plot almost like punishment for the audience. By the time it actually ends up in space—some ninety minutes or so in—and the actors start feigning slow motion movement to poorly mime a weightless atmosphere, you’re numb.
