I'll admit, reading the Benson/Brosnan/Rubin critiques of this film lowered my opinion of it (much like reading cbn lowered my opinion of Pierce's entries.) And despite its humor dragging it down in the eyes of these critics, to this day it has some of the most horrifying scenes for childhood Bond fans--the scientists gassed to death, Corrine being put down by dogs, the prospect of global gassing from orbital space. Oh, and water moccasins. Plus the cold corporate ruthlessness of Drax himself, feeling entitled to his megalomania by virtue of birth and wealth alone.
As if to balance all this out, MR also has phenomenal charm to it--something TND and QoS lack in droves. It may not achieve the heights of TSWLM, or Roger's first two eighties Bonds, but it's more welcoming and warm than each of the other actor's worst Bonds. OHMSS and LTK may be better films, but they are nowhere near as fun.
