James Bond busts Gus from Breaking Bad!
James Bond is sent to investigate a corrupt dictator of a Caribbean island who is suspected of killing 3 MI6 operatives. Before long, he’s investigating a shady restaurant chain owner – sort of the Gus from Breaking Bad before there was a Breaking Bad – who is clearly a weird evil dude. He keeps a virgin fortune teller who can see the future hostage… who is promptly seduced by Roger Moore using a stacked deck and that makes her somehow lose he powers…
So yeah… eventually it’s reveal the dictator and the restaurateur are one and the same and he is using his island to grow heroin and then distribute it through the supply chain of his restaurant.
From there, James Bond dispatches Mr. Big and his henchmen… except for the really creepy one.
Why it is 17 not 18?
Paul McCartney did the soundtrack… and Jane Seymour was a pretty lovely Bond girl – but really, this movie was just full of racial awkwardness, voodoo, and weirdness. It’s a strange one – but the stunts were great.
