- You might watch it twice to catch all comments and see stunts again
Awesome stunt work @ start! Near 4 star technically good movie, a bit soggy at the end romance wise with an explanation and no spikes in overall enjoyment. Thus a less than four, still a four star movie , could be possibly a +four due to the Stunts! Rent it, you won't be unhappy, but the movie is (too?) polished, no extreme wows! or sniffs...............more info
- James Bond Set Did Not Disappoint
I've been wanting to get this set for awhile now to give as a gift but was just waiting for the "right" price and thanks to Amazon, I got it at close to 70% off its original price!...more info
- The Perfect Collector's Set
I picked this up on special for $90 and have never looked back. It has every Bond movie up through Casino Royale. Inside the big black box are four smaller boxes - each of the four "Ultimate Edition" volume boxes - along with a copy of Casino Royale. All of the discs appear to be excellent quality, especially when played through an upscaling DVD player. I think the only way they might have made it better would be to have a comparable Blu-ray set. It also might have been nice to have a coupon for a discount on Quantum of Solace, too, since the target for such a set is really a completionist/collector. Anyway, it's a great set. Totally recommended....more info
- cheap cases
cheap plastic cases for a great collection? Could have gone for a little more quality considering the price....more info
- Awesome price, good package
I got this when it went on sale from Amazon and for that price it just could not be beaten. The presentation is good and looks fine,although just sticking in Casino Royale seems odd. I would have preferred that Casino Royale be separate (shipped alongside the box) or in a decorative box rather than in the regular retail package, however this is the only issue I have and it is a small one. ...more info
- Just what I wanted
Can't complain, its the box set minus the Solace flick. I recieved it within 1 week and got it all for $100!...more info
- Cheap, though crumpled
DVDs arrived ok, but the packing is poor. The booklets on the inside came crumpled. Lost one star here.
I paid less than $100 on this purchase, which is why I actually bought them on the first place. Just noticed that the price went up, and apparently this is not the first time the price floats. If I were you, I would wait for another sale....more info
- Ulitmate James Bond!
I bought this for my husband because his James Bond collection is all in VHS. For any James Bond fan, this collection is the Ultimate Collection without a doubt! The only missing movies are the 2 that aren't considered "real" James Bond movies by some, but I would still rather buy those 2 separately than pass up this amazing gift collectors set!...more info
- There's only one problem...
...finding the time to watch all these films. Getting it for $95.99 as a Gold Box deal was incredible. Arrived in perfect condition, and fast....more info
- Love 007
Got this box set and was happy to have all the movies, but...
All they do is put the smaller sets into one package. If you have purchased any of the individuals or small group packs, then there is no reason for this. Especially since Quantum of Solace will have no place to fit in this box when it comes out of DVD.
Luckily I did not own them previously (just watched them on TV during the holiday marathons). And I got it when it was the deal of the day, so it was super cheap. ...more info
- Wonderful collection
This was a wonderful addition to my collection of dvds. The enhanced picture looked great on the the big screen LCD it took me back to when I was much younger and was watching these on the silver screen....more info
- James Bond Ultimate Collector's Set
What a shame. Probably one of the most well known series ever presented and the marketing people can't get it right. Flimsy boxing, could have at least put them in order of when released. Is missing one. Amazon, with all of your buying power you should be able to help them get it right....more info
- This is the Ultimate James Bond.
This set is an excellent choice for the Bond lover. I hadn't purchased any of the other collections or individual films, so this was the best way for me at least. It has all existing 21 EON bond films.
Never Say Never Again is not an official EON James Bond film so it is not included in the set.
The set all contained in a fairly substantial case. It comes in a nice slip cover box, with all 21 films in one compartment, and the booklets in too smaller ones. It doesn't take up a large amount of space, but is fairly heavy. The set I got is not the same as some of the pictures sets that are the 4 collection boxes bundled in the box, they are all individual cases, and it looks much nicer.
It's interesting to watch the series evolve, from basic gadgets from Q to the most high-tech gear you could want from the Q-branch.
20 of the films are in the slim 2 disc DVD cases, with the movie and some bonus features on the main disc, and loads of extra packed into the second disc.
The 21st disc is the Widescreen Special Edition of Casino Royale. It is in a standard 2 disc DVD case, and squeeze nicely into the package.
There are 2 nice DK publishing booklets with info about Bond that fit into the case. Also included are 20 booklets that detail the story and info about the first 20 Bond movies, and have images of the theatre posters etc.
It would have been nice to have the extra info booklet for Casino Royale to slot in with the others.
time special deal of the entire collection for under $100 I had to get it!So when the cold winter comes a knockin I fully intend to kick back, pop some popcorn and enjoy all 21 of the James Bond movies.
Dr. No (1962)
The Bond series got off to a fine start with 1962's "Dr. No." Connery WAS Bond from the very first scene in the film. Despite a slow plot, the action sequences and supporting cast (including Ursula Andress as Honey Ryder in a stellar performance) make up for it. Overall, this is a fine beginning to one of film's most enduring franchises.
From Russia With Love (1963)
Sean Connery's second outing as James Bond is one of the best in the series. Intense action sequences, exotic locales, and beautiful women are all featured in what was to be just a taste of things to come. Connery proves that he is Bond with this picture. Robert Shaw ("Jaws") is very convincing as the villain who's almost unbeatable. Daniela Bianchi is among the most beautiful of the Bond women, and gives a fantastic performance.
Sean Connery's third film as Bond set the stage for the Bond films to come. Although "Dr. No" and "From Russia with Love" were successful, it was this film that set the standard for each film. From the first exciting pre-credits sequence, to the exciting climax, "Goldfiner" offers intense action sequences, beautiful women, and two of the most popular villains in movie history. Sean Connery delivers another great performance as Bond, proving that he had a great handle on the character. If it wasn't for this film, it's possible that the series would never have become as popular, or lasted as long, as it has.
Sean Connery's fourth outing as James Bond is one of the best in the series. Thrilling underwater sequences are at the heart of this exhilarating action film. The acting is great, and the storytelling is fantastic.
You Only Live Twice (1967)
This film features a fantastic plot, great action sequences and visual effects, extremely beautiful women, and some of the most exotic locales in the history of the franchise, "You Only Live Twice" was Bond at his best in the 1960's. This was Sean Connery's last consecutive film as Bond, and it remains Connery's best.
On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969)
After Sean Connery left the role after "You Only Live Twice," Australian George Lazenby took over in a fantastic, exciting film. Lazenby was a good choice to follow Connery, giving 007 a more emotional edge that makes his performance one of the best. Diana Rigg is great as Tracy, bringing both sex appeal and edge to the Bond girls. Telly Savalas may not be as menacing as Donald Pleasance had been, but his performance as Blofeld is very good. The action sequences are fantastic, and the plot is one of the most interesting. It's sad that this was Lazenby's only film, but he did give us one of the best Bond films ever!
Diamonds Are Forever (1971)
When George Lazenby left the series after filming his only entry in the series ("On Her Majesty's Secret Service"), Sean Connery was wooed back to the role for one more official entry as Bond. While Connery once again does as excellent job as 007, the film itself is slightly disappointing. While the film features excellent action sequences, the story gets a bit bizarre, and the storytelling seems a bit thin at times. While Jill St. John is beautiful, she is slightly annoying as Tiffany Case. Charles Gray isn't as sinister as Blofeld, a character made creepy by both Donald Pleasance ("You Only Live Twice") and Telly Savalas ("On Her Majesty's Secret Service"). Still, Sean Connery's presence makes up for the films weaknesses.
Live And Let Die (1973)
This is Roger Moore's debut as James Bond is, without a doubt, the most bizarre of the Bond films. Sadly, it doesn't work that well all the time. The settings are almost too out there, and the voodoo element just feels out of place in a Bond film. The action sequences are great, and Jane Seymour is a beautiful and sensuous Bond girl.
The Man With The Golden Gun (1974)
Roger Moore had a sly since of humor, but could still come off as a tough man you wouldn't want to mess with. His second film in the series, "The Man With the Golden Gun," is a fun adventure film with great action, a terrific villain (played by Christopher Lee in one of his best performances), and even more beautiful women. The weaknesses in the story are made up for by the terrific performances of Moore and Lee.
The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)
Roger Moore's third outing as Bond, "The Spy Who Loved Me" is memorable for thrilling action sequences, massive sets, Jaws, and great performances by Moore and Barbara Bach. Despite some weak story elements, this film is a thrilling adventure that is truly exciting.
Considered by many to be the "What the Heck" of the Bond movies, "Moonraker" is better than it's given credit for. However, that does not make it a great film. In an attempt to latch on to the sci-fi bandwagon after "Star Wars" blazed a trail for the genre, the film just goes too far "out there." A great first half is nearly ruined by a ludicrous climax. Still, Roger Moore still proved he had what it takes to play Bond, and delivers some very funny lines. The visual effects are spectacular. But the movie is a wacky film, and Lois Chiles, though very beautiful, sadly lacks any acting talent. Overall, this is definitely one of the worst Bond films. But the funny part is this: until 1995's "Goldeneye," this remained the most successful of the Bond films.
For Your Eyes Only (1981)
This film features Roger Moore at his best. He proved that he was indeed Bond, James Bond. The great action sequences and fantastic locations were in top form. Carole Bouquet is very exotic as Melina, and Julian Glover is one of the best villains ever. All of these elements, along with humor and plot, help to make this the best of the Bonds.
Roger Moore's next to last Bond film, sadly features an uninteresting plot. Despite Moore's trademark style as Bond, beautiful women, and terrific action sequences, the film lacks a powerful punch, and the main villain is quite dull.
A View To A Kill (1985)
This is the last film to feature Roger Moore as 007, "A View to a Kill" gives Roger Moore an exciting send-off. Christopher Walken gives a good performance as Max Zorin. Grace Jones is one of the most unique villains in Bond history as May Day, a woman who is both sensuous and dangerous. The only problem with the film is some hokey action sequences, and Tanya Roberts is a bit annoying in this film. But overall, this is a great farewell to the actor that feel was my favorite James Bond.
The Living Daylights (1987)
After Roger Moore had finished his tenure as James Bond with "A View to a Kill," Timothy Dalton replaced him in the next film, "The Living Daylights." Timothy Dalton gives the character a slight facelift, bringing a bit more grit to the role that was missing from the Moore era. The film features some of the greatest action sequences of the series, and terrific performances by Dalton, Jeroen Krabbe, Maryam d'Abo, and John Rhys-Davies. This film proved that their was still life in the franchise, and gave us one of the best entries in the series.
License To Kill (1989)
The last film to star Timothy Dalton as 007, "Licence to Kill" is a disappointing sendoff for the fourth actor to play James Bond. Despite a great performance by Dalton, the film does not have the look and feel of a Bond film. Rather, it feels like just a regular action film. The film is also too dark, and the violence is a bit over the top at times. If this hadn't been a "Bond" film, this might been given an R-rating. It was because of this film that the Dalton era came to an abrupt end. Despite thrilling action sequences and beautiful women, "Licence to Kill" fails to deliver.
The action sequences, beautiful women, exotic locations, and a fine performance by Sean Bean Help keep this film from being a bad one. The plot itself is not that great, but keeps you interest most of the time. Pierce Brosnan plays James bond well enough to be likeable in the part.
Tomorrow Never Dies (1997)
The Bond film that shared the same release date as James Cameron's "Titanic," "Tomorrow Never Dies" is the second Bond film to star Pierce Brosnan, whom I felt did a pretty good job playing James Bond. Like "Octopussy," the film's fantastic action sequences, exotic locales, and beautiful women are sometimes over shadowed by a mediocre plot at best. Jonathan Price, although a very good actor, is a bit over the top in this film, and the plot of a man's plans to start World War III to achieve ratings for his news network is a bit laughable at times.
The World Is Not Enough (1999)
With his third entry in the series, "The World in Not Enough," Pierce Brosnan does manage to turn in a decent performance in what is his best film in the series. This film offers some great action, a decent plot, thrilling visual effects, great villains, and two of the hottest Bond girls ever. Sophie Marceau is both sexy and sinister as Elektra King, proving a woman can be as good of a villain as any man can. Denise Richards is hot as well, but not in it for too long.
Die Another Day (2002)
Celebrating forty years of Ian Fleming's James Bond 007, "Die Another Day" presents the fourth and final film to star Pierce Brosnan as James Bond. The film delivers great action sequences, beautiful women, great villains, and an interesting plot. The film's weakness, however, is that it relies too heavy on visual effects, like "The Spy Who Loved Me" and "Moonraker" before it. Some of the CG effects are too obvious, and it sometimes detracts from the film. But despite this drawback, "Die Another Day" is a fine tribute to the Bond films before it, and gives Brosnan an exciting, epic send-off.
Casino Royale (2006)
After Pierce Brosnan left the role of James Bond, it was time for James Bond to be slightly reinvented. Enter "Casino Royale," the first Bond film to be based on an Ian Fleming novel since 1987's "The Living Daylights." Fan expectations were high, to say the least. Would Daniel Craig be as good as those before him? Could they change the format and stick true to the Bond mythos?
After seeing the film, I was pleasantly surprised! Daniel Craig does a fine job as James Bond "Casino Royale" is a very good entry in the Bond franchise. The action sequences are fantastic, with very little use of CG effects. The plot and storytelling, missing from recent entries in the series, are both believable and exceptional. The many twists and turns will have you on the edge of your seat until it's exciting, emotional climax.
Daniel Craig makes a very good James Bond. He plays the part gritty and violent. You wouldn't want to get make him mad. He won't just punch you, he'll go all out on you. Daniel Craig also manages to give Bond a more emotional edge, making his version of the character the most compelling in a long while.
Eva Green is both smart, funny, and sexy as Vesper Lynd, one of the top 10 Bond girls ever. Mads Mikkelsen is truly sinister as Le Chiffre, but also brings a bit of humanity to the role, making his villain one of the most compelling. Jeffrey Wright and Judy Dench give great performances as well.
Casino Royale has helped resurrect the Bond franchise, and created breathed new life into the series....more info
- Your 007 fix all in one nice looking box
I had only seen the Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig films before buying this set back in February of this year, so I was interested in seeing all the older Bond films. I really liked almost every single one, which surprised me. Bond movies are just so much fun.
The video and audio transfers are remastered beautifully. No need to buy the Blu-ray versions, which I read are a little better, but not worth the extra money if you can get this set at a good price. I paid $145.00 for it, but it was on sale on amazon for $89.99 a few days ago. Keep a look out for price drops on this one.
You can call me a true 007 fan, now that I've seen all 22 flicks (I saw Quantum of Solace last weekend and I don't count the Never Say Never Again remake). My only gripe is that the films are not boxed in the order they were released. Not a big deal, but it would have made the set a tad more professional....more info
- What a Steal Of a Deal:)
We just received this today!! And what I don't understand is why no one likes the box these DVD's come in? This is Awesome, My hubby said these DVD's are the best in sound and color!!! He was so happy that I got them for him with the surround sound Sony OMG aboslutely two great deals!! I have Ordered my Pots and Pans and some other things but just started to give my reviews which I do find very helpful, to me anyways!!! Well when these go on Sale again and you have a James Bond Lover, click and buy it's a Awesome set:) Have a good day!! This was Deal of the Day by the way!! I was just there at the right time:) Happy Shopping all!!!...more info
This was a fantastic deal. I previously had the first pak that I rec'd as a gift. I have been wathching for the others and pricing them out and then this deal came along. I also picked up "Quantom" to complete the collection. This is something that I have wanted for a long time....more info
- A must-have for the ultimate James Bond fan!
Besides being a collector's set, owning this series is as great as owning a piece of history, a memento. All 21 movies from Dr. No to Casino Royale, and with all of the extra bonus discs, there are endless hours of entertainment to be had. A great value and one highly recommended to own....more info
- James Bond - The basics
The packaging leaves a lot to be desired but the Ultimate Collectors Set remains the easiest way of getting the bulk of the Bond films in one fell swoop. Presumably, after a few more films have been released and gone to DVD, there will be another "complete" set but until then, this seems to be the best way to go. ...more info
- Perfect Gift for the Bond Lover in Your Life
It has everything. All of the James Bond movies up to and including Casino Royale and all of the extras dvds for each movie to go along with it. This is not the knock off version that has Chinese menu options and freezes up if you swap sides of the couch. The only flaw is that it is essentially a big box of four previous box sets so it isn't in order. I had to Google a list of the Bond films to find out which to watch first....more info
- SCRATCHED DISCS!
Awesome job remastering these discs, but unfortunately 12 out of 21 discs had either disc 1 (movie), 2 (special features) or both significantly scratched. Sent for an exchange, so will see how the new set works out....more info
It's really a good price and quality for this movie set. We love it!...more info
- Best Bond Collection Ever!!
This is seriously the best bond collection ever. Each movie is digitally re-done and is in great quality; also each movie has an extra feature so even the biggest bond fan can learn something new about each film. This set is awesome....more info
- Great DVD set.
I recently purchased this set on an Amazon one day deal for less than $100. I have had the chance to watch six of the movies and they have all been great. The dvd's are remastered and you can tell with sharp images and great colors.They look vantastic! The packaging of the set is better that most with sturdy boxes and good quality materials. The only complaint would be that the movies are not in any kind of order and you have to figure out the order yourself or go online as I did and print something out. If you don't have any of the James Bond movies as I didn't this is the way to go and if you can get it for less than $100 as I did it just makes a great deal. Amazon shipped it fast and came in well packaged....I don't even look anywhere else for dvd's anymore because Amazon can't be beat. Would highly recommend both the dvd set and Amazon....more info
I paid less than a 100 bucks for this set when it was on sale... great price and definitely worth the buy. Yea, the booklets are put to the side of the DVDs in the subset of boxes but at least it comes with booklets! Almost all the DVDs I buy anymore only come with the disc so I don't really care where the booklets are placed as long as I get them. ...more info
- Never Say Never Again is not included
I bought this set a while ago. Today I realized that movie was not included. It was silly of me, thinking that the ultimate collection included all the movies....more info
- James bond collection
Exactly what i was hoping it would be and the price was perfect the collection for under $90 shipped it was a no brainer....more info
- If you like 007, this is a must have.
I love the extras on every one of the movies in this collection. This is a 007 fan's dream....more info
- James Bond 007 Ultimate DVD Collector's Set
This collection (with every official 007 movie from Dr. No to Casino Royale and the special features disk, making this a 42 disk set) would be great for anyone who is a James Bond fan but does not have the entire collection. The picture quality on these movies has been re-mastered and looks great (although I cannot compare these to the Blu-Ray editions as I do not have a Blu-Ray player), and the sound is amazing as well. I have not viewed any of the Special Features yet, so I cannot comment on those.
One downfall that I can see to this set is that the Casino Royale seems to be tacked on with the rest of the set. The box art does not match the rest of the DVDs in the collection. Another is that while some of these films take up an entire widescreen TV, others have the black boxes at the top and bottom. Even after finding these things out after I purchased the product, I was still very impressed with the set, and would purchase it again as well as recommend it to anyone that was looking into purchasing a James Bond DVD collection.
- Great set
This is a great product especially for $90 as a gold box deal. As far as the set goes, I don't like how the dvds are arranged out of order, but I understand how it is meant to sell more individual box sets as not everyone likes all of the bond films. Another thing about the dvds that is annoying is that there is a couple-minute-long advertisement clip for how these films were digitally restored. I can understand this once, or on one of the bonus discs to explain the process, but does it really have to pop up for every dvd in the collection?...more info
- Watch the Legend
This is one of the best collections you'll find. Every Bond movie except for Quantum of Solace is included in this set along with a special features DVD for each movie. It's great to be able to have a Bond marathon whenever I feel like it....more info
