Goldfinger is, of course, the third film in the official James Bond movie series. It finds Sean Connery as 007, this time pitted against Auric Goldfinger. Of course, things aren’t straightforward, not helped by the presence of Oddjob and Pussy Galore, and the film isn’t shy of terrific sequences, memorable Bond moments and Connery on tip-top form in the lead role. What’s particularly satisfying about the Blu-ray is just how complete it is. The picture quality is a very pleasant surprise, delivering sharp visuals in spite of the age of the film. The audio is limited by today’s standards--it certainly struggles to stand toe-to-toe next to something like Quantum Of Solace in that regard--but it’s still the best the film has sounded in the home. And then there’s the excellent, thoughtful extra features package. A lot of it you’ve seen before on the DVD releases, but there has been some welcome HD improvement work undertaken too. Something that’s overlooked on many catalogue Blu-ray releases.
Ultimately, Goldfinger is a vintage James Bond film, that makes the most of its high definition upgrade. Now roll on the rest of the movies… --Jon Foster --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
I have the film previously on DVD and was a little dubious as to how it could be improved upon, but as a fan of blu ray and Bond movies I thought I would give it a go. Read morePublished 5 days ago by P Goodhead
