    ★★★

    70s Crime Month

    An alcoholic ex-policeman is drawn into a plot which sees his former wife kidnapped and held to ransom in order to force her new husband to participate in the robbery of one of the vans owned by his security company.

    The very first words uttered by Stacey Keach's mouth are 'piss off' and as soon as you hear that you know he's going to go with an English accent and to be fair he doesn't do all…

    ”Come, come Mr Bond, you disappoint me.”

    I couldn't agree more.

    007 receives what amounts to a death threat (or promise) from the mysterious assassin Scaramanga in the form of a golden bullet. Relieved of his current mission to track down the whereabouts of a scientist who has an invention which will turn the solar power industry on it's head, he is free to track down the man who is trying to kill him via Beirut, Macao, Hong…
