Review by Jesse Ryder Hughes


SYNOPSIS:

A mysterious Fabergé egg conducts this mission for Bond. He finds out Kamal Khan (Jourdan) is smuggling priceless Russian jewelry helping a crazy Russian general Orlov to pay for artillery to invade Europe and pretty much do what Hitler did. Octopussy, a mysterious woman who is helping Khan sees her wrong ways when Bond convinces her that Khan is going to kill her and destroy her entire circus, with a bomb in the place where the jewelry is being smuggled during the circus show.

What is WILDsound?

REVIEW:

Bond wears both a clown suit and a gorilla suit in this film and that turns a lot of people off, but this film is pretty good. I'm not going to say it's great. You know what? I'm going to say its safe to say it's mediocre. I think director Glen's potential really shines with the Dalton films later on. Octopussy feels like an old Bond mentality fighting with new Bond mentality, direction vs. production. The plot is crazy with the circus and the weird all woman Octopussy cult. Standard Bond villains, Gobinda, Kahn's henchman, is an Indian versian of Jaws and Oddjob, but not as cool or interesting with just being strong to back him up. I do like General Orlov who is wild, although nobody in the film trusts him, because he is off his rocker and it makes you wonder how he got into his positions in Russian politics and the criminal underworld.

Though I will continue to say the film has more graphic blood than previous films, which suggests this more of a real world than just guys dying by machine guns with no bloodshed at all in past films that made the Bond films unbelievable for the most part. I will say before Indiana Jones ran across the circus train in the last crusade Bond had done it 6 years earlier with Octopussy. I like to think this is Spielberg's obsession with the bond films and an ode to them.

The airplane stunt in the end is incredibly exciting and thrilling with Bond holding on for dear life on an airplane trying to save the girl from the bad guys. Octopussy's mansion full of women is every Bond fans dream although I feel wrong admitting it. These women are portrayed though as being very strong and crafty women and further pushes the evolution of womens rights in the evolution of woman portrayed in the bond films. They become more and more equal on par with Bond which is a good thing, because we see these old guys, the 50's producers mentality, growing out of the times.

In the end Octopussy is another entertaining bond film. It is more cohesive than For Your Eyes only, but way more elaborate and outrageous. Moore is definitely showing his age in this one and I really can't believe he stayed on to do the next film. All in all a solid rainy afternoon movie to get some kicks out if no more, no less.
