Teaming up with CIA undercover agent/astronaut Holly Goodhead (Lois Chiles), Bond finds a factory in Venice where Drax is having vials built that kill humans in a matter of seconds. They travel to Rio De Janeiro and face off against Bond's old nemesis Jaws (Ricahrd Kiel). They follow a trail of evidence that leads them to the jungle and Drax's plan: to send a deadly virus down to Earth from his space station and destroy humanity. Bond and Holly hijack a space shuttle, sneak aboard the space station, and race to save the world from Drax's evil plan.

The review of this Movie prepared by Mathhew W. Kresal

In the eleventh installment in the James Bond series we find Agent 007 investigating billionare Hugo Drax and his odd obsession with space. Along the way he meets Holly Goodhead, a CIA agent whom he falls in love with. Together they must discover what secrets Drax is hiding and try to prevent global terror. Moonraker is the most far out Bond film with space ships, space stations, lasers, space battles, and globe hopping to the extreme. Bond travels from Germany to England, then to California, then to Venice then to Rio, then to outer space.

James Bond must stop a villain from killing everyone on the planet with biological weapons, using a LOT of cool devices and gadgets in the process, and aided by the scientific minded Dr. Goodhead.
