Who is the man with the golden gun
The Man With the Golden Gun (James Bond, #13) by Ian FlemingA brainwashed James Bond has tried—and failed—to assassinate M, his boss. Now Bond has to prove he is back on form and can be trusted again. All 007 has to do is kill one of the most deadly freelance hit men in the world: Paco “Pistols” Scaramanga, the Man with the Golden Gun. But despite his license to kill, 007 is no assassin, and on finding Scaramanga in the sultry heat of Jamaica, he decides to infiltrate the killer’s criminal cooperative—and realizes that he will have to take him out as swiftly as possible.

The Man with the Golden Gun
Received wisdom says that Roger Moore was the worst , the one who turned James Bond into a caricature. Rubbish, of course. How do you turn a character with no hinterland, no interests beyond bedding women and killing villains — and sometimes killing women — into a caricature? He already is a caricature. Bond is empty: Moore's treatment of him as a bored playboy, for whom the sex and violence are beads of sensation in a mundane world, is the only filmic reading of the character as written in the screenplays that makes any sense. Like albums by the Fall, the first Bond film you see is the one that leaves its residue upon you. This was mine: an unimaginably thrilling experience at the time, though less so from a distance of more than 35 years.
A loose adaptation of Ian Fleming 's novel of the same name , the film has Bond sent after the Solex Agitator, a device that can harness the power of the sun , while facing the assassin Francisco Scaramanga , the "Man with the Golden Gun". - Some films in a franchise are considered great and some are seen to be lacking or weaker entries. Now, I agree that some films in franchises are poor or just not as good as some of the others however this is not always the case.
