A must own for any Bond fanatic
Good representation of the bond over the years
they had to include one of Timothy Dalton's movies
The Bottom Line:
A must for every Bond fan wanting to build his/her library. Does a great job of representing the evoluton of Bond over 40 years.
If you have ever considered putting on your tux, packing your Walther PPK and heading out to the casino for a friendly game of chemin de fer over a medium dry vodka martini (you know how to mix it) then you really need to get a hold of this box set.
When choosing 7 movies from a selection of 20, you inevitably are going to upset somebody (where's Thunderball?!?!). But the people who put this set together did an excellent job of representing bond over the years. Connery setting the role in such classics as Dr. No and Goldfinger that every bond afficianado must watch at least once a year. (In fact, the younger generations who have been brought up on a steady diet of Austin Powers need to go back to these old classics to understand why Austin is really so funny.)
The two Moore picks (Golden Gun and Spy who Loved Me) are about as good as Roger ever did.
They had to include a Dalton flick I suppose, so toss a coin on that one. The two Brosnan flicks at least include Goldeneye (Pierce's best IMHO).
I suppose they had to leave Thunderball around for the next box set. Goodness knows that they need something to package along with Lazenby's disaster and Die Another Day!
All the added features are a lot of fun. The director's commentaries are great and the CDs are loaded with old trailers and tv ads that the true fan will find a lot of fun.
There are also a lot of good documentaries on the CDs, including a fascinating one about the stuntmen who have done Bond down through the years.
This set is a must own for every Bond fan. Period.
