James Bond fans take heart. He
has not "met his match," as the
ads for his new film, A View to a
But Bond has met the sex sym-
bol of the '80s. She's all muscle
and menace. She'd kill you rather
than caress you. She's Grace

monic, with her hair in two devil's
Bond (Roger Moore) does lure
Jones to bed. We are left to im-
agine what happens there. For the
sex scenes in this film are as in-
nocuous as anything since the an-
tiseptic amours of Doris Day and
There could be two reasons for
this cautious approach: The pro-
ducer's desire to retain the PG
rating, and the problem with
showing more of Moore than his
head and shoulders. After all, he
has been around for a long time.
The question with this new Bond
concoction is not whether it's
suitable for children, but whether
it's suitable for adults. Every-
thing is predictable, comic-strip
You might expect from the
opening titles, complete with
Duran Duran track, that this will
be ".007 Meets MTV." But, aside
from Grace Jones, there isn't any
of that here. There is a never-
ending stream of action stunts,
but none as inventive as early
Bond. There are sexy women,
ominous foreigners and glamor-
ous settings, as per the formula.
What's missing is suspense. We
know before Bond does what the
arch villain is up to. And this is a
major flaw. The film's middle sags
Roger Moore is slick, charming
and invincible as always. Jones is
sullen and threatening. Tanya
Roberts, the heroine, is a luscious,
tantalizing beauty. Unfortu-
nately, the script and director
give her little to do but scream,
"James." I counted up to 37
"Jameses" and gave up.
Christopher Walken, with
bleached blonde hair, plays the
head bad guy, a steroid-enhanced
Soviet stooge, Zorin. This guy is so
bad he double-crosses his own
loyal men. After unleashing flood
waters and dynamite on his min-
ers, and gunning down survivors,
he glances at his watch and says,
"Good, right on schedule." It's the
biggest laugh of the film.
The humor is mainly pun-
ishment. Bond and Zorin, ogling
sexy women while ostensibly
talking about horseback riding:
"I'm anxious to get back in the
saddle." Actually, there are more
groans than laughs.
One of the conventions of the
genre is the hair-breadth escape.
And Moore has plenty of those
here. Fortunately for him, Wal-
ken never figures out that the
only sure way to get rid of Bond is
to just plain shoot him. Instead,
Walken puts him in a car and
pushes it into the lake. Or has him
pushed into a burning elevator. Is
anyone, besides me, old enough to
remember The Perils of Pauline?
Poor old California. With all its
faults, everyone wants to start an
earthquake. First, super-crook
Lex Luthor in Superman plotted
to create a quake to knock the gol-
den west into the briny deep. Now
Zorin wants to quake Silicon Val-
ley out of existence. Do our
California movie-makers suffer
from some kind of guilt and need
to punish themselves?
This one is for dyed-in-the-wool
Bond fans and kids only.
