Product Description

Collection of six films featuring Ian Fleming's stylish, cool-under-fire, secret agent-cum-ladies' man. In 'Dr No' (1962), James Bond (Sean Connery) is sent to Jamaica to investigate the murder of one of his colleagues. It transpires that the island is being used as a base for the terrorist organisation SPECTRE, which, under the guidance of the despotic Dr No (Joseph Wiseman), has developed technology to divert rockets launched from Cape Canaveral. In 'From Russia With Love' (1963), Bond (Connery) is sent to Istanbul to steal a Russian coding machine, but comes up against two fearsome opponents also interested in the device: East German spy Rosa Klebb (Lotte Lenya), who hides a deadly switchblade in her shoe, and Red Grant (Robert Shaw), an assassin posing as a fellow British agent. In 'Thunderball' (1965), global criminal organisation SPECTRE has stolen two nuclear bombs and is threatening to blow up the world. Bond (Connery) infiltrates the terrorists' underwater base off the Bahamas in order to foil their plan. In 'For Your Eyes Only' (1981), when a British ship sinks in foreign waters, the world's superpowers begin a desperate hunt for its cargo: a nuclear submarine control system. Bond (Roger Moore) also joins the search as he attempts to prevent global devastation. In 'Live and Let Die' (1973), Bond's (Moore) mission is to crack a voodoo-controlled drug smuggling racket in the Caribbean. 007 carries out the task with his customary verve, finding time for speedboat chases and crocodile encounters along the way. Admirable support is offered by Clifton James, as an irate Southern Sheriff, and Jane Seymour, as a Voodoo Queen whose power disappears when she loses her virginity by sleeping with Bond. Finally, in 'Die Another Day' (2002), 007 (Pierce Brosnan) has spent the last 12 months in a North Korean prison after being captured whilst on assignment by government agents. When he is finally freed his superiors are worried that he will not be up to the job. Until, that is, Bond discovers that one of his former captors, Zao (Rick Yune), has teamed up with the evil Gustav Graves (Toby Stephens) and the pair plan to put the fate of the entire world in jeopardy. Bond must once again save the world whilst also keeping his quota of glamorous women in tow (Halle Berry and Rosamund Pike), using the gadgets provided by Q (John Cleese) and travelling the world in the most expensive cars.

From Amazon.co.uk

They’ve taken their time getting here, but the 007 back catalogue finally makes its bow in high definition, with a broad choice of films to get things started. And where better to start than with the film that started the James Bond saga off in the first place?

Dr. No, starring Sean Connery, is the first of the official Bonds, and regarded by many as one of the best. It’s inevitably quite raw by recent standards (and arguably better for it), but the balance of humour and action is superbly handled, and it continues to endure far beyond nostalgia value. From Russia With Love, also starring Connery, is even better (and this is the 007 film that plenty cite as their outright favourite), pitting Bond up against SPECTRE in an ambitious and outstanding adventure. The final Connery title in the set is Thunderball, which finds SPECTRE again up to no good, holding a city to ransom under threat of an atomic weapon. It, too, is premium Bond, and great to see in high definition.

Next up in the set is a pair of Roger Moore outings, starting with his debut in the role, Live and Let Die. The memorable title song aside, this is an often-underrated adventure, replete with dramatic boat chase, and drug smugglers needing to be taken down. Then there’s For Your Eyes Only, which pits Bond against Julian Glover’s Kristatos in the hunt for the ATAC weapons system.

The final film in the set is Pierce Brosnan’s swansong as 007, Die Another Day, which also introduces Halle Berry as Jinx, a massive ice castle and the oft-mocked invisible car. But it’s a harder adventure than you’d expect, and again, better than it’s given credit for.

It’s been some wait for James Bond fans eager to get their hands on high definition versions of their favourites. And while there are still plenty of Bond movies to make the jump to 1080p, this collection is a great way to get the ball rolling. Let’s hope James Bond will return to hi-def. And soon. --Jon Foster

It's good to have them appearing on Blu-ray at last - but why the curious selection? Thunderball instead of Goldfinger? And why do For Your Eyes Only and Die Another Day warrant special treatment? Why not issue the films in order? The packaging is neat and will take up less shelf space, but the non-sequential issue means no more impressive 'from first to last' displays (unless you buy the Blu-rays separately) - and we all waved goodbye to the '007' logo spread across all the spines about 2 DVD re-issues ago. I suppose this will mean that we will have to wait forever for the vastly underrated and visually-impressive On Her Majesty's Secret Service to be Blu-rayed.

I looked at this item when it originally came out but was put off by the price being as they were such old films. Although I loved the films I didn't want to pay a lot of money for something I may watch two or three times more then keep in the cupboard. As the price began to fall then it passed the "this is now worth it" barrier and I'm glad it did. I have always been a fan of Sean Connery as 007 and the quality of these films is just superb. I wasn't sure whether such old films could be given the blu-ray touch but trust me these are excellent. If you are a Bond fan then treat yourself to this box set. You will not be dissapointed.

Format: Blu-ray
These films have over the years had thousands of reviews ,we all know Bond we all know what to expect .BUT! why can't the distributers get it in their tiny mind that on Blu-ray ,Bond Fans want :Sean Connery films in one Blu-ray set followed by Roger Moore box set on their own .seems pointless putting a couple of Seans and a couple of Rogers ,then Pierc's in one set ,as sixties Bonds are years away from 2000 Bonds they just dont sit right together ,The 5 Stars are for 'Bond films as I wouldn't give anything less ,but release in order please ,I know eventually they released them on DVD 'Sean Connery' sets and Roger Moore sets thats how they should be bought out .I wont be collecting on Blu-ray until all come out together as I have them on DVD ,I am writing this review before I have even checked if they are on Blu-ray together ,but I hope Amazon print this if just to let the distributers know stop mismaching our films ,might as well put a box set out with 'The Sound of Music 'coupled with 'Freddy Kruger' or Friday 13th .Kind regards Barry.

This collection features six James Bond movies. The choice may seem strange, as these are not the first six, nor the six movies starring Sean Connery. In fact we have here three James Bond with Sean Connery, two with Roger Moore and one with Pearce Brosnan. I'm not going to tell you which one I prefer in 007, this is a very subjective matter ! Anyway, a very curious selection indeed. But, well, any James Bond is good, and the price is very attractive. The booklet specifies English in DTD HD and mistakenly as the only language available but does not mention over languages such as French, German, Spanish and others that I forgot but that are now specified in the Product Details section. The picture and sound quality in High Def are purely amazing and surely make this boxset worth the while and ideal to start a blu-ray collection, though all the James Bond movies have not been edited in BD format yet.

Others have commented that the title selection is rather odd and I agree but the quality is excellent. I thought the set was pricey at nearly £40 but good value at £29.99. Now the set is around £22 so you are effectively getting a couple free! This is FAR TOO CHEAP so buy before they change their minds!!!

Update: they have changed their mind and put it up to £60. Wait for the full 22 bluray set due out at the end of 2012 (in time for Christmas). At £90 this equates to just over £4 a title, about half the cost of individual titles on bluray. The cost of this 6 disk set is now much too high.

Further update: after briefly raising the price to about sixty pounds they have changed their minds again and put it back to £22. If you want these titles now then buy this set but you may want to wait for the full 22 title set due out at the end of 2012.

If you're after saving some space on the shelf and a little bit of cash over buying the individual releases then this is what you want. The packaging is a competent fold out digipack style. The films themselves look excellent in High Def. Some people say there's not much improvement over the recent UEs. However the extra detail is apparent, of course it is. There's only so much upscaling DVDs can get you. The set is encoded for regions A,B,C.

Great priced set for those who are just visiting bond movies. The movies look fantastic but sadly Thunderball and Dr No have bad sound tracks. I too have noticed that the volume on the dialogue is very low. i had to turn the sound up only to have my ears blasted when ever there was music as that was on FULL volume. It spoilt my enjoyment of the set and I ended up giving the set away to a friend. I'll buy the indivdual movies on blu ray instead even though i'll be paying more.

I didn't like the slip case anyway, there wasn't even one photograph of bond or anything anywhere! ah well it was at a budget price...
