Overview

This 13th time around, "007" receives the usual call to come and visit "Mother" when another agent drops off a fake Faberge jeweled egg at the British embassy in East Berlin and is later killed at a traveling circus. Suspicions mount when the assistant manager of the circus Kamal Louis Jourdan, outbids Bond for the real Faberge piece at Sotheby's. Bond follows Kamal to India where the superspy thwarts many an ingenious attack and encounters the antiheroine of the title Maud Adams, an international smuggler who runs the circus as a cover for her illegal operations. It does not take long to figure out that Orlov Steven Berkoff, a decidedly rank Russian general is planning to raise enough money with the fake Faberges to detonate a nuclear bomb in Europe and then defeat NATO forces once and for all in conventional warfare. As always, it is up to Bond to save the day, win the woman, and perform unimaginable feats of derring-do in the process.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Octopussy is one of the cleaner Roger Moore Bond films, despite a title that tends to elicit blushes. Bond films are always a miniature world tour, but this one's plot carries off the usual jet-setting with more finesse than some of its predecessors and some that followed. It's got a colorful slate of villains, starting with Louis Jourdan's slippery Kamal Kahn and Steven Berkoff's vain-popping Russian general Orlov, and continuing with such minions as the bodyguard who can crush dice in his fist, the twin circus knife throwers, and the man with the yo-yo razor blade. Memorable set pieces include a dangerous ride through an Indian marketplace and the safari game hunt in which Bond is the target. But the film's lingering image is of Bond sliding down an ornate banister, machine gun blazing, just barely blowing off the decorative flourish at the bottom to keep his privates from getting pulverized. Ever perfecting that playful grin and dry wit, Moore makes his sixth and penultimate Bond film, one of the series' more satisfying. Octopussy was one of eight Bond films that John Glen either directed or edited.

    not a real james bond fan

    Let me first start by saying, I am not a real James Bond fan! My husband is. He really likes this movie. I watched it with him, and found myself surprised, it wasn't that bad. I thought overall the movie had good performances and an average plot.
