A Cuban hitman Gonzales kills Havelock along with his wife. James Bond is sent to investigate the whole affair.

However, Havelock’s daughter Melina finds Gonzales before Bond and kills him. He recognizes another assassin Locque, in Gonzales’s house and the trail leads him to an intelligence informant and businessman Aristotle Kristatos.

Aristotle tells him that the KGB’s Contact is a Greek smuggler named Columbo. Columbo accuses Aristotle of being the contact and gives away Loccque’s hideout to Bond.

Agent Y's Opinion


Overall, this is a satisfying movie. Bond gives, yet again, a great performance. The movie has more of a classic spy feel to it and is more enjoyable for this very reason. Also, a rememberable title song by Sheena Easton!
