Bond on Bond

by Roger Moore

Rated: None

The year 2012 heralded 50 years of James Bond in the movie theater, and former 007 portrayer Roger Moore has prepared a nifty coffee-table book as part of the commemoration. Everything you can imagine from the Bond films is on display: Villains, gadgets, cars, locations, style and, of course, girls. Although his perspective is understandably skewed, Sir Roger presents elements from the entire spectrum of the franchise, not just the parts with which he was personally involved.

There is an abundance of photographs in all of the sections, and they are not just reprints of the same old images that we have been subjected to over the last five decades. Behind-the-scenes, archives and simple snapshots make this seem a more familiar and intimate study of the celluloid version of Ian Fleming’s master spy. The biggest surprise is the lack of input from any of the other actors, especially considering they are all still living.

There is not a lot of depth here, and the author’s tongue-in-cheek approach makes this a very readable and pleasant diversion for a couple of days.

Rated: None.
