3.0 out of 5 stars The Spy Who Loved Me, 2007 Bond Remastered Edition - Roger Moore's eyebrow battles Richard Kiel's dental ironmongery, 30 Aug 2010

This review is from: Bond Remastered - The Spy Who Loved Me (1-disc) [DVD] [1977] (DVD)
Superspy James Bond's tenth big screen outing was BIG. With a big budget and with one of the biggest film sets ever built, it all comes together as an entertaining romp.

Bond is sent off to investigate the mysterious disappearance of nuclear submarines. The Russians have also lost a sub, and soon Bond is crossing swords with their agent triple X as well as the mysterious Jaws (Richard Kiel with a brace that is a match for Ugly Betty's!). As the chase runs from Egypt to Sardinia, Bond and Triple X soon work out that Curt Jurgens' sinister tycoon Stromberg is behind things, and he has a plan to destroy the world and set up a new paradise with a few chosen ones under the sea.

The action and stunts are big and thrilling. There are several well known sequences like the Union Jack parachute jump, the submarine bay fight, the underwater Lotus and the battles with Jaws. It's a thrilling ride most of the time, but however there are a couple of things that let it down. Jurgens is criminally underused, and Stromberg a badly written character. And the whole romance aspect is a bit cloying. And the feel is a little too jokey at times.

This digitally restored edition really is the best version of the film I have owned. The picture has been lovingly restored and cleaned up, and looks amazing. Really, I am not just saying that. It looks superb. The sound has been similarly treated and there is an option to listen to it in 5.1 DTS surround, which is truly exceptional.
