From the death-defying opening that sees Agent 007 skiing off a 3000-foot mountain precipice to the explosive finale aboard a supertanker,The Spy Who Loved Me is Bond at his exhilarating best! Not content with diving off mountain sides, Bond also launches one of Q's cleverest cars straight under water. The submersible Lotus sports car "equipped with sea-to-air underwater missiles" was actually driven by two divers wearing breathing apparatus traveling at 14 knots. Moore always considered this his favourite film, perhaps not least for the introduction of the metal-mouthed and seemingly indestructible Jaws, one of only a few Bond villains to return for more than one outing.
