I hadn't seen this Bond movie for years - but what a difference!! This is WAY more exciting than that `crap', so long since I'd seen this I'd forgotten just how much...
Loved the scenes with Anthony Dawson in particular - one of my favourite actors, and one who was grossly underrated. See him in classics such as: `Dial `M' For Murder' and `The Queen Of Spades'. (see my Reviews for those titles too) I also loved the scenes featuring the woman photographer who tries to get shots of Bond. There are also tense and exciting scenes when James is climbing through the tunnel waterways - not forgetting of course the scene featuring the Spider! All this type of thing is far better for me than some forty-five minutes or so of constant and repetitive `action' sequences that have no real meaning at all in order to keep the interest of those who have no more attention span than that of the average Guinea Pig...
When you compare something like these old classics with the modern James Bond movies, it's probably time to give up the series I think... Craig is great as a `Bond', but the stories and scripts are just lousy...
The best improvement comes in the visual department where it actually displays 4K in the corner and then the film begins.
Immediately the sharpness of the movie is that much better then the DVD restoration process.
There is a big but, with the increased sharpness and detail comes increase grain in the picture.
There seemed to be a massive problem with film studios using cr*ppy film stock of the time which has nothing to do with the film restoration.
Anyway the best incarnation of the movie so far.
The transfer to 1080p blu-ray is remarkable for a 1962 vintage film, I have to say that there are a few grainy scenes but that is obviously due to the quality of the original negative, and some of the special effects look a little obvious but the overall quality of both the picture and sound is amazing much better than the DVD release, it is well worth the price.
