On the original MGM DVD release, a heavy amount of reverb is added to John Barry's score when Bond kills Scaramanga in the fun house. The original mono track, heard on the 2006 Ultimate Edition DVD, cuts the music off just as Bond fires his weapon. The Dolby Digital 5.1 mix on the UE adds a smaller amount of reverb, but still cuts the music off as Bond fires. See more »
Bond is back and he has to out smart a hit-man who charges $1,000,000 a shot (Christopher Lee) is the man with the golden gun, and he has the usual delusions of world domination and a thirst to pit himself against the best spy in the business.
The plot in this one does have its holes and the script has a little too much silliness and comedy to make it a classic bond film, but if it's entertainment your after then this hits the mark without question, and it still has one of the most awesome car stunts ever.
It's not the best in the series, but there's enough here to entertain you, and Christopher Lee makes a great Bond bad guy.
