The Greatest Bond Movie Ever!
I own the entire Bond collection on DVD, but I wanted to add a copy of From Russia With Love on Blue-Ray as it is my favorite in the series. This classic has it all...the first apperance of Q when he demostrates Bond's new briefcase complete with tear-gas, and hidden knife....this will be the first of many 007 gadgets to come. Great sences of Istambul,Venice, the Orient Express train ride, helocopter chase, and the final boat chase. This is the last movie JFK ever saw...and he loved it!

Great Movie. Sean is a 007 god!
I have been reading the Bond books, followed by watching the movie. This movie follows the book the best. The people, places, dialog and premise are right on the money. There are a few differences i.e. Specture took the place of Smersh and the ending was missing a few people and some details. Overall the movie was great. Sean Conery is still my favorite Bond and this movie proves why. This is one of the Bond movies that I didn't have to say anything bad about, because it was a good movie. I'm glad I added it to the movie collection.

Bond goes Blu-Ray; Does it do it justice?
The answer is a resounding "YES". The back of the packaging didn't lie when it said Blu-Ray was made for Bond. Not only did they remaster it, but they actually modernized it in the process. It looks almost like a modernly shot movie with 60's clothing and culture as the arrangement. Very well done.
One noticeable flaw is that the audio is not up to Blu-Ray-quality snuff. I had read online that the audio was not very good when they shot it, so there wasn't much they could do, so don't expect it to sound brilliant coming through your hi-def TV, let alone your 7.1 DTS surround sound system. You can hear it, that's really all that matters, but it just sounds aged.
As for the movie itself, I'm 20 years old. Sean Connery as Bond is far behind my time, so I'm accustomed to Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig being Bond. I can say that Connery does much better than Brosnan, who always seemed a little emotionless as Bond, but I still believe Craig is the best, simply because he's the most human of them all, as well as the most ruthless. Connery is a great Bond though; he's funny, suave, stylish, and he gets the job done. The plot is ood but nothing overly spectacular. Daniela Bianchi is one of the most gorgeous Bond girls I've seen, and her part is well played.
It has Special Features, but I never really pay them much attention. I do know they are there. Basically, what it comes down to is if you have a Blu-Ray player or PlayStation 3 (I use a PS3 on a 26" Sony Bravia 1080i LCD TV) and loved or are curious about From Russia With Love, give it a go. It's got one of the best plots I've seen from a 007 movie, and it looks fantastic on Blu-Ray. If you don't have Blu-Ray or a PS3, obviously, you can't but this, but it is available as an Ultimate Edition on DVD, so don't fret. I bought this off of eBay for under $13, so getting it on Blu-Ray is more that affordable, and on DVD is probably even cheaper. If you're not into Connery as Bond, don't bother, but 007 purists and those looking to explore the capabilities of their Blu-Ray player should give this a shot. It looks fantastic.Read full review

Bond...Blu-Ray Bond (From Russia with Love)
From Ruassia With Love was the second of the James Bond movies and in this one, we get to see Q and villain Blofeld for the first time (not Blofeld's face though).
Bond is sent on an assignment to Istanbul to get a machine from a Russian agent. During his mission, he falls in love with this agent and she defects. Baddies from SPECTRE are sent after Bond to try and kill him, but as usual don't succeed.
Highlights of this movie include the train journey, boat chase and the battle at the gypsy camp. Bond has with him a very lethal briefcase and one of the SPECTRE villains, a woman wears very lethal shoes with spikes.
Sean Connery is great as Bond and is joined by Robert Shaw, Daniela Bianchi and regulars Bernard Lee, Lois Maxwell and Desmond Llewelyn.
From Russia With Love is a must for all Bond fans. Brilliant.
Worth getting in Blu-Ray There is an improvement over DVD.Read full review
