There cannot be many who would argue that Goldfinger and possible Thunderball were the best of the Bond series.

Made 42yrs ago when film budgets were still under control,the plot of Goldfinger is so far fetched that it adds to the enjoyment.

This special edition series is indeed special,with the first class commentaries and insights into how the film was made.

Most people have seen the film more times than they can remember but how many realised that Gert Frobe spoke hardly any English,so little infact that every scene he is in which is most of the film was cleverly dubbed.If you watch carefully you realise his lips are moving quite quickly,this was so that the voice over looked more realistic.

This version has also undergone picture enhancement which really shows and listening to the superb commentaries makes what was an excellent movie into a classic.

Profiles are given on most of the main characters and by now Sean Connery was recognised as BOND,and remains to most the best of those who played the role.

As i have already said the budget for Goldfinger even though it was then a considerable sum paled into insignificance compared to the later films but Goldfinger remains the best because everyone in the film played their part so well,especially Harold Tanaka who played OddJob.

Alongside Richard Kiels Jaws character OddJob is the most recognised of all Bond characters because his role of Goldfingers baddie was played to perfection.

If you want to revisit the Bond movies all this series have superb extras and commentaries but Goldfinger still towers above the rest for being the most successful in the long running series.

The one and only true Bond, although Daniel Craig is very hot, is back on the screen in glorious remastered clarity. Iconic film...

One of the best Bond films made, complete with dastardly villains, great scenery, humorous undercurrents, and gripping drama.

Excellent film, lots of action as we have come to expect from the Bond films, and Sean Connery, what more could you want.

Great restoration but if you own a Blu-Ray player I suggest getting Goldfinger Blu-ray instead as the quailty is better.

I am sure there are endless 5 star reviews of this golden Bond oldie. Seeing it in Blu-ray really brings alive.

Sean Connery shows his class playing the role of 007 out to catch the ruthless villian/gangster Goldfinger (Gerty Frobe) whose evil plot to take over the world and blow up Fort Knox can only be hindered by 007. With the Bond girls Pussy Galore (Honor Blackman) and Shirley Eaton's famous gold body painting the stage is set for a classic Bond..Watch out for the villian oddjob who throws a mean bowler hat....In all honesty I really am not exaggerating when I say this could be mistaken for a modern day Bond (picture quality is that pristine) it is very hard to believe it was released in 1965...Sean Connery is a great Bond and carries the role with style and panache...The gadgets are all present including the famous laser scene with 007.This Bond has it all and proves blu-ray is the only way to go with this title....Whilst the sound is DTS HD Master Audio it may not be quite up to the picture quality standard but neverless is a good upgrade....Buy with the utmost of confidence to see and hear Bond at his best...Highly Recommended
