Moonraker (1979) (part 14 of 14)
Back in the station, gravity is restored and we get random fighting from Bond, Jaws, and Holly. They see the third globe launched and they all head for the main part of the station. We get more senseless action that’s just there for show as the Marines infiltrate the station. Drax gets away into a corridor and Bond follows in pursuit. I especially dig the way Bond walks down the corridor towards Drax as explosions are going off. Roger was generally a lighter 007 but he could bring the badass when he had to.
Drax is cornered, when suddenly he spies a gun on the floor. Grabbing it quickly, he orders Bond to surrender. Bond slowly raises his hands and Drax chuckles, “Desolated, Mr. Bond.” Bond sets off his wrist dart gun, plugging Drax in the chest. Bond replies, “Heartbroken, Mr. Drax.” He pushes Drax into an airlock, and with the line, “Take a giant step for mankind!” he dumps Drax into the dead of space.
