5.0 out of 5 stars Filmed now set in the 60's, 12 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Dr. No [Blu-ray] [1962] (Blu-ray)
That is how much improved the picture is on BLU RAY...You would think it was filmed yesterday...It is that good...

I'm sure if you are on here then you are a fan of the films so i won't spend to much time on the movie itself..
It is the first Bond film..No one knew what was to come so things that are established in future movies are in part missing here if you now what i mean but i think it is a better film for it..
To me the best Bond films are the ones that either stick closley to the original novel(this,FRWL,OHMSS) or indeed try to keep the character as close to how Fleming intended..Connery in his first 4 films did this..Lazenby,Dalton and Craig also keep true to how the character was written..
Connery nails Bond from the very first attempt and in part this is down to the director Terence Young for the stly and pace of the film...Connery's Bond is indeed a killer..he has that air about hi,..that danger element that sadly disappers as each film rolls on..

So the BLU RAY...well what can i say..Wonderful...The casino scene at the start i almost felt like i was sitting at the table with them...the smoke almost fills my room when Bond has a cigarette..you can tell that Sean had his nails done as they are clean as a button...
This is really what it must have been like watching it when it was first released back in 1962..
Roll on the next batch of films on blu ray....
5 stars...excellent.

I noticed the US blu ray discs had the original mono soundtrack - is this the case here?

No not at all. DTS-HD. Only slight problem is the sound levels appear a little erratic.

Actually this will be probably better now than when first released, cinemas in the 60's weren't that sophisticated and the projectors rather crude by todays standards, also many films that were made 30 yrs ago or so and have been remastered,some directors have commented that they look way better than they originally did, due to superior spit and polish techniques!
