Once again we are treated to a megalomaniac, Max Zorin (Christopher Walken).  This time, instead of wanting to destroy the world, he wants to corner the  burgeoning important microchip industry. He will need to destroy Silicon Valley in California in order to achieve success.

Zorin’s henchwoman, May Day, is played by Grace Jones who has a very impressive wardrobe. May Day has an impressive escape from the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Zorin needs to buy an oil business from Stacy Sutton (Tanya Roberts) who is also a geologist.  She helps Bond in figuring out Zorin’s plot.
