Octopussy was released in 1983 by MGM, is 131 minutes long, and is the thirteenth film in the James Bond franchise. The film was directed by John Glen and stars Roger Moore as James Bond, a fictional spy working for MI6 and the British Government. Co-stars include Maud Adams as Octopussy, Louis Jordan as Kamal, and Kristina Wayborn as Magda. Maud Adams, who is also in The Man with the Golden Gun, is one of a few actresses who has been a Bond girl in two Bond films. In Octopussy, James Bond must stop a global tragedy from occurring before the culprits responsible can set the plot in motion. Octopussy is Moore’s sixth James Bond feature, and his second-to-last. The film received mixed reviews from critics. Many of Octopussy’s outlandish scenes, like a jungle chase scene, were criticized as being too silly for Bond’s character. The film has also been described as confusing and too long. The visual stunts in the film were praised, however, as was Moore’s performance.
