Not too mention we come hot off the last movie, where the series archnemesis killed Bond's wife and the only narrative attention that gets is the pre-titles sequence where Bond lazily slaps around informants and "finishes off" Blofeld in less than ten minutes. And then it's back to the status quo in the laziest way imaginable.

I don't know, maybe I expected too much sequel in a serial film series.

Although I agree that Golden Gun has the worst plot--monopolize a renewable resource? Seriously?
