Criticism

.Moore has had, and continues to have, an enormous fanbase worldwide, particularly in Western Europe and in the USA, and, as James Bond, was undeniably one of the film world's top box office stars for most of the 1970s.^ Moore has starred in hugely popular films and television series in the past fifty years; he played roles such as The Saint, The Persuader and James Bond, 007.

[17]
He has been unpopular with critics, who have often derided his acting as limited and wooden. In the New York Times of 29 December 1974, Vincent Canby sarcastically wrote that he hereby awarded Moore "the Kabuki Acting Award… in recognition of the manner in which he has reduced all human emotions to a series of variations on one gesture, the raising of the right eyebrow." And in The Good Film And Video Guide (published 1986), David Shipman wrote of A View to a Kill that Moore as James Bond was "not so much like a piece of plastic, as something embalmed but moving." John Brosnan, who with his 1972 book, James Bond In The Cinema, became the first writer to seriously consider the phenomenon of the Bond movies in themselves, as opposed to the books, consistently urged Broccoli to replace Moore, writing in his review of Moonraker in Starburst magazine that he was "plastic...more James Bland than James Bond."[18]
.The satirical British TV show Spitting Image once had a sketch in which their latex likeness of Moore, when asked to display emotions by an offscreen director, does nothing but raise an eyebrow.^ NOthing against the man I like him in what he currently does but, my god.

Indeed, he had always embraced the 'eyebrows' gag wholeheartedly, slyly claiming that he "only had three expressions as Bond: right eyebrow raised, left eyebrow raised and eyebrows crossed when grabbed by Jaws." Spitting Image continued the joke, featuring a Bond movie spoof, The Man with the Wooden Delivery, with Moore's puppet receiving orders from Margaret Thatcher to kill Mikhail Gorbachev, and many other comedy shows of that time ridiculed Moore's acting, Rory Bremner once claiming to have had a death threat from an irate fan of Moore's, following one such routine.[19]
.When Moore was made the subject of an edition of the BBC1 series Best Of British on 22 October 1999, the review in Time Out stated he should not have been included, due to being "second-rate". Similarly, reviewing the programme in The Stage, comedy writer Harry Venning wrote that, while he personally enjoyed The Saint and The Persuaders, and "although he (Moore) certainly holds a place in the nation's affection it would be hard to think of anything he has ever been best at.....his movie career has been largely undistinguished, and there is more chance of finding Glenn Miller's plane than anyone who thinks Moore was the definitive James Bond.^ Movie review: Adventureland -- 3 out of 5 stars .

He decided to become a tax exile when Labour was returned to power in 1974, and has lived abroad ever since. However, in December 2007, he joined a protest in Bristol organised by the left-wing Unite trade union against the closure of a nearby Cadbury chocolate factory.[21][22]
