- A clown (009 in disguise) gatecrashes a British embassy party in East Berlin and dies, a knife in his back... Clutched in his hand is a Fabergé egg. MI6 discovers that this priceless jewel was a clever fake, and that another is to be sold at auction. Bond pursues Prince Kamal Khan, the buyer of the egg, to India, and not only uncovers a high-class smuggling scheme, but also a plan to start WW3 involving a psychopathic Russian general who intends to set off a nuclear weapon in West Germany and blame it on the US causing total nuclear disarment and undefended borders. Help comes from a beguiling source: the mysterious Octopussy and her traveling circus.
- June 6, 1983

i agree- octopussy was very good- maybe roger moore's best one. however, although i enjoyed never say never a tad, something was missing and it finally registered a couple of years ago what was missing. it was the bond music that was missing. Amazing how without the theme music it seemed somewhat empty and listless at times. anyone else agree??

I like Octopussy a lot. Especially love the appearance of 80's tennis star VJ Armitraj. Too bad bad they kill him off. But, I also wanted to give a nod to Never Say Never Again. If you enjoy Bond movies, NSNA is a very good movie. Oddly enough, I find it to have a "Roger Moore Bond" feel. Anyways, they both came out in '83, and are both entertaining 007.
