Universal Exports Summary and Review:
[FYEO Movie Poster] Summary: When a British ship is sunk in foreign waters, the world's superpowers begin a feverish race to find its cargo: a nuclear submarine control system. And 007 is thrust into one of his most riveting adventures as he rushes to join the search...and prevent global devastation.

Review: For Your Eyes Only is by far the best Bond film since On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Following Moonraker, this is a refreshing return to what James Bond is all about. Using the From Russia With Love formula and mixing it with various tidbits from the novels, the producers succeeded in creating a brilliant film. It is refreshing to see Bond having to rely on his own skill and whit to succeed: not Q's gadgets. One of the best scenes comes at the start of the film when Bond is kneeling at Tracy's grave. This scene alone shows more emotion than Moore's four previous movies combined. In addition to being a traditional Bond film with intrigue and suspense, there is plenty of action to keep the short-attention-spanned people interested. Other highlights include the raid on Kristatos's warehouse, the water torture of Bond and Melina and the attack on St. Cyrils. On top of everything, the movie featured the first plot twist in a Bond film. Ian Fleming would have been proud.

Universal Exports Rating: 006
