4.0 out of 5 stars The complete James Bond adventure
Always wanted to add a James Bond collection, but am so glad I held out until now. This is the 'Ultimate' collection, by using the latest restoration process each movie's sound and picture is fantastic; so if you are watching From Russia with Love, Live or Let Die, through to Casino Royle all movies look and sound fantastic; in particullar my favourite Goldfinger...

3.0 out of 5 stars one for the completists only
it seems every 5 years or so the Bond films get a makeover or are released in a new format or collection ...if you already have the Ultimate Edition DVD`s of the Bond films ..then you are not really getting anything new apart from the new collection packaging ...maybe handy for anyone who has limited storage space ..

Oh ...for those that are saying this...

4.0 out of 5 stars The complete James Bond adventure, 4 Jan 2008

Always wanted to add a James Bond collection, but am so glad I held out until now. This is the 'Ultimate' collection, by using the latest restoration process each movie's sound and picture is fantastic; so if you are watching From Russia with Love, Live or Let Die, through to Casino Royle all movies look and sound fantastic; in particullar my favourite Goldfinger.

The only downside, which is a very small issue is that the movies are not in order; as they are the four collections and the double disc of Daniel Craig's recent outing in Casino Royle, but their is a correct list on the bottom of the box; so you can watch the movies in the correct order.

Buy this collection, you'll never regret it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value, 18 Nov 2007

This review is from: Bond Ultimate Collectors Set (42 Disc Box Set)[1962] (REGION 2) [DVD] (DVD)
I needn't review the Bond films here but a few comments on the set.
-It contains the four previously released 'Ultimate' mini sets with five Bonds in each one; packaged together with a 2 disc retail version of Casion Royale. This means the Bonds aren't in chronological order; and the dvd slip cases on the first 20 are the thin single verions, common in NTSC box sets; packaged within the 4 Ultimate sleeves. It's a little bit slipshod, especially as the Casiono Royale doesn't match.
-The box itself however is very small and neat, which is a boon if like me your space is limited.
-Each film is the 2 disc ultimate version, so regardless of packaging there is no scrimping on the films themselves, these are the best dvd releases available.
-I bought it locally at 99 which is great value for the full Bond series.
So if you're interested in presentation and want something 'extra special' then perhaps wait for a different release. If however you want the full Bond set at a good price and neatly packed together, I certainly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant restoration of some brilliant films., 27 May 2009
This review is from: Bond Ultimate Collectors Set (42 Disc Box Set)[1962] (REGION 2) [DVD] (DVD)
A brilliant set, words can't describe how great the Bond films are, and an even better viewing experience now with a restored set, and even put into Dolby 5.1 - Fantastic :D

It is a shame, though, that they are not in chronological order - nor any logical order for that matter, as it is in fact a set of four sets of the original Ultimate Editions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy Bond and buy hours and hours and hours of pleasure, 20 Nov 2007
This review is from: Bond Ultimate Collectors Set (42 Disc Box Set)[1962] (REGION 2) [DVD] (DVD)
The set is great, compact, neat storage, extras with the set, but what you are REALLY buying it for is the films.
Great family entertainment, we can usually get the whole lot around the tv for these, and it's good clean fun. Well clean enough, anyway.
Buy it for Christmas and that could save a lot of chat to odd bods and sundries who seem to turn up in the lounge over the festive season.
A great classic buy, no regrets from us.

Oh ...for those that are saying this collection is missing the Never Say Never Again Bond outing by Sean Connery ...that was never an official Bond film so it will never be included in any collections or officially recognised as a Bond film by the Bond heirachy ...etc

Bought 2nd hand for around 40, this was an absolute bargain.

DVD is certainly good enough for the earlier films. They've been remastered, but the source for earlier ones doesn't really warrant BluRay.

There's not much point commenting on the films themselves, although there is a bonus disk for each one with lots of interesting extras. They aren't stored in chronological order though, so you'll need to look up the order to watch them, unless you know off by heart!

Should keep you entertained for a few weeks!

what a collection, only 1 film missing that was a shame but inevitable as 3 more have arrived since I bought it and an old one is the missing one. but all that aside it is a fantastic collection ! and i'm well happy with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars complete? james bond set?, 27 Dec 2007
By 
This review is from: Bond Ultimate Collectors Set (42 Disc Box Set)[1962] (REGION 2) [DVD] (DVD)
It's a nice set, well priced but it's not complete as it doesn't contain 'Never say Never Again' Sean Connery's last outing as James Bond.
