I'm actually kinda glad they got their "James Bond in space" urges out of the way when they did. You can only imagine how this would've fared if it'd been done in the Brosnan era in response to the Star Wars prequels.
And it's actually semi-plausible as far as James Bond movies go. Most of the movie is a typical Bond adventure, except this one's a carbon copy of Spy Who Loved Me. Bond's only in space for the last chunk of the film, and the effects are quite epic and well handled (love the space marine fight, something even star wars didn't dare do).
Unfortunately this is Moore's worst performance, the Bond girls are lifeless, and Jaws is wasted. With performances this bland, thank god the effects were so good.
