(83) The Spy Who Loved Me is the best of the Moore era in a number of ways. It starts off by subverting expectations in the unveiling of Agent XXX, 007’s opposite number in the KGB. The film is pretty to look at, features exotic locales, and composer Marvin Hamlisch delivers interesting takes on classic 007 tracks. Truthfully, Spy is just as hammy as other Moore flicks when it wants to be, but it’s also more agile in pivoting to serious moments when necessary.
