Live And Let Die is a British film and is the eighth film in the James Bond series. In this film, Bond must defeat and international villain with a worldwide organisation, with all his decisions made by a reliable tarot card reader.

As usual, there are few things cooler than James Bond, and this was no exception. You may think that because it was made in the early 70s, and there was no CGI back then, all the stunts would seem quite lame, but that is definitely not the case.

This was filled with action, drama and excitement throughout, with some really cool stunts throughout, such as driving a double-decker bus under a low bridge, chopping the wings off of an aeroplane, and chucking a guy into a box of snakes. All of that just made it such fun to watch.

It also had quite an interesting story, however at points it did become a little slow and boring to watch, while people were introducing themselves to one another or something like that, but for the most part, this was one of the coolest films I’ve seen this year, so I’ll give it a 7.7.
