(mx) wrote: Some amusingly gory moments, but no genuine scares. Contains a needless rape scene which is just in there for shock. That aside, it's quite entertaining. It also contains a soundtrack made up of only two pieces of music which made me laugh a lot because they just kept coming back again and again. One of them sounds like Tay Zonday's "Chocolate Rain".

The action's fun, the villains are menacing, the Bond girl is memorable, and etc. All this amounts to a film that's easily one of the better Roger Moore films as well as one of the best of the series. However, Live and Let Die is yet another example of a Bond film taking advantage of what's popular in the film industry at the time, and in this case it's blaxplotation. Now I don't condone it, but it does elevate the film from what could've easily been a pretty mediocre Bond film. And for some reason, the film unnecessarily borderlines on the supernatural at times. But despite all that, it's an overall enjoyable viewing experience. Now, Live and Let Die may not be for everyone, but any Bond fan should be able to appreciate it for what it's worth.
(fr) wrote: It certainly is an appealing Western, and it shows a lot of promise, but compared to other films of its genre, it seems like a watered down version of films like A Fistful of Dollars. The story is alright, but I find that the pacing is a little too fast, by which I mean the plot speeds along so fast that parts of the plot can seem really insignificant. The acting, meanwhile, is quite good, even if the characters aren't always interesting. Like many westerns, this movie has appealing visuals and good music, but that's not the whole of what makes a good movie. While I enjoy it in some ways, it will never be as good as the Western films that it's clearly burrowing from. To be honest, the only bad thing about this movie is that tried and failed to match the comparatively lofty kings of Western genre.

(it) wrote: I can't believe I watched the whole thing, it really wasn't worth it. As my other half said, it was only good for the boobies. It was unbelievable and just plain wrong. The story behind it had some merit, it just didn't come across well.
