Another fantastic Blu-Ray transfer. From Russia With Love is many people's favourite Bond outing, my own included. It retains the grittier Bond evident in Dr No, and starts racking up both action and tension as Bond battles it out with Spectre agents and terrorists for a Soviet decoder. In this, the characters first sequel, Sean Connery definitively becomes 007 James Bond. John Barry's music stays with you forever, and director Terrence Young also deserves great credit for some of the series's finest entry's at the helm. It's the cold war espionage thriller at its most sexy, the perfect matinee Bond movie.

This brought back a few memories as I first saw this in the theatre the first week it was released. I relived this 110 min REGION B/2 DVD and remembered in fondness the great use of the location of Istanbul as well as the scene on board the Orient Express as 007,Tania and Kerim flee with the Lektor and of cause the fight with Red Grant. Will be watching this one again.

I have always enjoyed this film and regard it as one of the finest Bond films. Everything about this film works, it has good action scenes and two of the best Bond villains in Rosa Klebb and Red Grant. Daniella Bianchi also makes a good Bond girl and she has great chemistry with Sean Connery in the film. I know that most Bond fans regard Goldfinger as the quintessential Connery Bond film but, for me, this is much better and less sillier than Goldfinger. I give it four stars and it is well worth checking out, if you are a Bond fan and if you haven't already seen it. It is a pity that none of the Connery films that followed matched this, but that is just my opinion.

Very much a period piece now (showing many scenes of the 60s), this is classic James Bond action film. Sean Connery is established in his role of OO7 after the strong entrance of Dr.No, and plays it cool once more with the ladies. The film is not overly violent or sexist but does introduce some 'new' gadgets to the screen. Of all the 'old Bonds', and personally I rate this as one of the best. It captures the mood (both politically and internationally) at the time and sits well amongst my top 5 favourite Bond movies up to now. It's appropriate for all ages (unlike some of the newer productions) but does show show clear signs of a more leisurely way of life and gentlemanly code of behaviour, even from 'the baddies'. It is good value for money and comes with some entertaining and many informative extras. Certainly worth a score of 8/10 in my opinion.

Sean Connery returns in his second and arguably his best outing as 007
What makes From Russia With Love so great is that its not only a great Bond movie but it's also a thoroughly engaging cold war spy thriller with a Hitchcock vibe to it
It also features one of the greatest fight scenes ever filmed, a pretty brutal one as well for 1963
If you want Connery at his best as Bond this is it!!!
This one is definitely in my top 5 Bond movies of all time
Truly a classic :-)

Best Bond flick of all, imo. Bit dated now I suppose, but then so am I. I wonder where Ms. Klebb buys her shoes?

bought out of curiosity to compare with the book and audio which I just purchased, though I've seen the film several times on TV. The characterizations are brilliant, but the story line wanders off the book in places. Robert Shaw as Grant is believable as the killer, but I found Bianchi as Tatiana an average office secretary of the 60's, hardly the breathtaking goddess that the book suggests.

By far one of the best Bond films to date. For a 60's film the graphics are superb. The train scene was one brutal fight that'll leave you hanging off your seat. It also introduces you to the leader of Spectre Blofeld and the 1st female Bond villain Rosa Klebb who has a tap dance battle to the death with Bond.
