12. 'For Your Eyes Only' (1981)

An attempt, only partially successful, to get real with the Bond films again. As Roger Moore's aging Bond tries to locate a missile defense system, director John Glen puts focus on the revenge plot cooked up against a Greek tycoon (Julian Glover) by a woman (Carole Bouquet) out to get even for the murder of her parents. Bouquet deserved the role for her legs only. There's a very high per capita rate of nearly nude females.
