Dewicking for cut.
* ParvumOpus: This is noted as one of the worst Bond films made by EON due to Roger Moore now being way too old for the role, which led to it becoming an OldShame for him, as well as recycling the ''Goldfinger'' plot after rival Kevin [=McClory=] had done so already with ''Never Say Never Again'' (a remake of ''Thunderball''), so it's one of the finalists for being the ParvumOpus of the James Bond series as well as Moore's filmography (the other two Roger Moore Bond movies that are in contention are ''The Man With The Golden Gun'' and ''Moonraker''.) This film was Roger Moore's personal least favorite, since he felt he was too old for the Bond character and he hated some aspects of the movie; this led to him forcing EON's recast by backing out of Hollywood on a heavy scale since he didn't appear in another movie for five years. ''AVTAK'' also has the lowest Website/RottenTomatoes rating for any official Bond movie to date.

** Music/DuranDuran's opening song is the only Bond theme to make it to #1 on the charts. Even the movie's strongest detractors will admit to the song being an undeniable highlight of the movie.

Moved to the Heartwarming page.
* HeartwarmingMoments: Say what you will about Stacy Sutton (like the difference in age between her actress and Roger Moore), but she does allow Bond to show his softer side for the camera. The scene where he makes dinner for her, fixes her phone line, and even tucks her in to bed, serves as a sweet contrast to his [[{{Jerkass}} Jerkassery]] in his first films.

** As pointed out by Roger Ebert, Zorin's plan is utterly stupid. He wants to destroy Silicon Valley in order to gain a monopoly on the microchip market, but the tech companies of Silicon Valley are the ''consumers'' of microchips, not the producers. All Zorin's plan would accomplish is the death of his own customers.
