Product Description

Amazon.ca

Released in 1962, this first James Bond movie remains one of the best and serves as an entertaining reminder that the Bond series began (in keeping with Ian Fleming's novels) with a surprising lack of gadgetry and big-budget fireworks. Sean Connery was just 32 years old when he won the role of Agent 007. In his first adventure James Bond is called to Jamaica where a colleague and secretary have been mysteriously killed. With an American CIA agent (Jack Lord, pre-Hawaii Five-O), they discover that the nefarious Dr No (Joseph Wiseman) is scheming to blackmail the US government with a device capable of deflecting and destroying US rockets launched from Cape Canaveral. Of course, Bond takes time off from his exploits to enjoy the company of a few gorgeous women, including the bikini-clad Ursula Andress. She gloriously kicks off the long-standing tradition of Bond women who know how to please their favourite secret agent. A sexist anachronism? Maybe, but this is Bond at his purest, kicking off a series of movies that shows no sign of slowing down. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars I think it was great. March 24 2004

Format:DVD
Dr.No is one of the best James Bond movies I've seen.James Bond is played by his best actor Sean Connery.It came out in theaters long ago in 1963.

Format:DVD
From the opening strains of The James Bond Theme over the first gunbarrel opening, Dr. No propels the audience into the world of James Bond. The trio of Dr. No, From Russia With Love and Goldfinger got the series started with a bang and created a standard that has never quite been matched, even by great later entries like On Her Majesty's Secret Service, The Spy Who Loved Me and For Your Eyes Only. Director Terence Young's tough, violent tone in Dr. No does Ian Fleming's books proud and it's unfortunate that that tone wasn't maintained throughout the series. The locations, editing and casting are top notch. The only way the film really fails is in the casting of the wooden Jack Lord as Felix Leiter. In the books Leiter was a tall, blone, skinny gregarious Texan. Lord, in contrast, looks like he wandered off the set of Hawaii-Five-0 onto this film. Luckily, Leiter isn't that important to the film, so any negative effect is minimal.
However, Dr. No owes its success chiefly to two moments -- two of the greatest entrances in screen history. One is Honey Ryder's (Ursula Andress) entrance on the beach on Dr. No's Crab Key. Andress immediately became an object of desire for millions of red blooded males with her tanned sensuous body and skimpy bikini (in the book Dr. No, Ryder was naked). After 42 years and god knows how many sexy women, Andress' Ryder is still the standard. And unlike so many of the later Bond heroines, Andress' Ryder is a tough, intelligent woman who can take care of herself. When Bond promises he won't take the shells she sells to support herself, Andress answers, "I promise you you won't, either." Later, when she tells of killing her rapist with a black widow spider, even Bond recoils in mild shock.

3.0 out of 5 stars terence young's bond May 23 2004
Format:DVD
it is terence young, more than sean connery, more than ian fleming and more than broccoli who created the movie bond.
it is all here.
while this first movie is a little rough and has a somewhat bland villan, we enjoy the roughness of it, which was part of youngs inimitable style.
the first shot of bond smoking at the poker table is a classic and who knew what it was going to unleash.
the second memorable scene involves a long legged girl in a white dress shirt and a golf club. bond's entry into this scene is again, classic and ultra stylish.
too, bond is ruthless here, shooting an unarmed victim. he would not be this cold blooded again until license to kill.
andress looks like a perfectly formed candy bar and any red blooded male would love to unwrap her.
another mention is the sets, which are fantastic and again, very stylish.
one cant help but using that word; style, again and again because thats what sets the young bonds apart from all the rest of them.
young's bound abounds in style!

4.0 out of 5 stars NO Way Out March 19 2004
Format:DVD
Dr. No was the first James Bond spy thriller, penned by Ian Flemming, adapted for the big screen. Since the franchise is still going strong after some four decades, to say simply, they got off on the right foot, is an understatement. Director Terence Young and leading man Sean Connery set a cool precedent for every other film in the series with Dr. No.
Bond (Connery) is assigned to a mission in Jamaica. An agent who was investigating strange activity with nuclear weapons at Cape Canveral has disappeared and he is to take up where he left off. His contact, CIA operative Felix Leiter (Jack Lord-pre Hawaii 5-0) is there to help. While dodging assisins and lovely femme fatales Bond's investigation takes him to Crab Key Island to find evil scientist Dr. No (Joseph Wiseman), the primary suspect. There he is meets Honey Ryder (Ursula Andress), a deadly beauty who emerges from the sea in a tiny bikini with a knife holster slung about her hips, in one of the most memorable Bond-girl moments of all time. It's up to Bond to find a way to save the world...before it's too late.
Terance Young, who directed three out of the first four films in the series, takes a simple approach. The gadgetry is at a minimum and there is more of an intricate web of mystery in this adventure than in most other Bond movies. Don't worry though, it's still all there, but the film sticks closer to the Flemming novels. M (Bernard Lee) and Moneypenny (Lois Maxwell) true staples of the Bond mythos are here as well. With all due respect to Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, and Brosnan, Connery still owns the role hands down. And he proves it right out of the gate...
The extras on the special edition DVD are pretty good. They are set up the same way as on most other discs in the series.
