Live and Let Die


James Bond (Roger Moore) investigates several murders that lead him to New York and dr. Kananga (Yaphet Kotto) who is planning to destroy the U.S. by flooding it with heroin.Ā The eighth Bond flick is Mooreā€™s first; he has a natural charm, but lacks his predecessorā€™s brutal streak. He gets no help from Jane Seymour and Kotto, two of the seriesā€™ weakest girls and villains. The movie revels in voodoo, but has no spirit; on the plus side is a terrific title tune and a nifty sequence where Bond escapes from a crocodile trap.

1973-Britain. 121 min. Color. Directed byĀ Guy Hamilton. Novel: Ian Fleming. Song: ā€Live and Let Dieā€ (performed by Paul McCartney & Wings). Cast: Roger Moore (James Bond), Yaphet Kotto (Dr. Kananga/Mr. Big), Jane Seymour (Solitaire), Clifton James, Geoffrey Holder, Bernard Lee.
