Product Description

Amazon.ca

Directed with consummate skill by Terence Young, the second James Bond spy thriller is considered by many fans to be the best of them all. Certainly Sean Connery was never better as the dashing Agent 007, whose latest mission takes him to Istanbul to retrieve a top-secret Russian decoding machine. His efforts are thwarted when he gets romantically distracted by a sexy Russian double agent (Daniela Bianchi), and is tracked by a lovely assassin (Lotte Lenya) with switchblade shoes, and by a crazed killer (Robert Shaw), who clashes with Bond during the film's dazzling climax aboard the Orient Express. From Russia with Love is classic James Bond, before the gadgets, pyrotechnics, and Roger Moore steered the movies away from the more realistic tone of the books by Ian Fleming. --Jeff Shannon

I've seen this film many times on TV, VHS and DVD, but this blu-ray transfer is absolutely stunning. Cleaned up by the good folks at Lowry Digital Images, the picture clarity is perfect and shows details that I've never picked up before. This blu-ray makes an old film new again, I'm very impressed by the quality of all the Bond films on blu-ray.

Rather that go into any details or opinions on the content of this Bond movie (as it is likely well enough known already), I'll do a simple review on the quality of the Blu-Ray disc: it's great! I was concerned about the transfer quality given the disc's new low price, but the studio really did a great job. I'd say that the picture here was better than the one on the new North by Northwest Blu-Ray issue, which costs a lot more. Sound was fine too, although not up there with the modern soundtracks that were engineered in surround sound in the first place (no real surprise there). Bottom line: this disc offers great value and a fine Blu-Ray movie experience. If you like the movie, you'll not be disappointed with this disc! Here's hoping that the rest of these Bond Blu-Rays are just as good.

P.S. I gave 4 stars due to sound quality. The picture would easily rate 5 stars for a movie of this vintage.

This second James Bond flick is great, but has some inconsistencies. For instance, why is the head of the KGB in the country they are in, leading a raid into a gypsy camp? And, although the Gypsy leader told Bond he would have to resolve the dilema of the two girls wanting the same man, there was never any resolution to that. Which girl did Bond choose?

On the other hand, the fight on the train has to rate up there in the all time great fight sequences, and the overall ambience of the film is absolutely great. I give it full stars regardless of the inconsistencies noted above.

The 2nd James Bond movie. Following the success of DR. NO, producers Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman immediately propose the prospect of a sequel, but the proverbial question was of which film to adapt next. Ironically the decision of FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE came from the choice of a very unlikely supporter: President John F. Kennedy! With such international tensions developing over news broadcasts, FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE introduced entirely new aspects of appeal with Sean Connery reprising the role of 007. In addition is a diverse talent of International names appearing throughout the cast; Daniela Bianchi as the girl Tatiana Romanova, Lotte Lenya as the SPECTRE villanious Rosa Klebb, and most unforgettably Robert Shaw as assassin Red Grant. The confrontation between Connery and Shaw aboard the Orient Express remains one of the greatest confrontations in cinema history.
THE ASSIGNMENT: Tatiana Romanova, a Russian Cypher clerk, is assigned to defect a valuable cypher machine, known as a Lektor - if James Bond (who she is instructed to fall in love with) adjourns to meet her at Istanbul. Unknown to M and 007, SPECTRE is behind this plot. They have three motives; 1) to set the Russians and English at odds with one another, 2) to profit from the deal when they sell the Lektor back to the Russians, and 3) to lure Bond to his death in revenge for killing their operative - Dr. No. Even if the plot is somehow transparent, it will work, and they reason because the British can never resist a trap.
THE VILLAINS: Lotte Lenya as Rosa Klebb, Robert Shaw as Red Grant, Vladek Sheybal as Kronsteen, and a very young Walter Gotell (later played General Gogol) as Morzeny.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! BUY IT!

"60,000,007 James Bond fans live in a throbbing world of hot blooded excitement!" a poster for the second James Bond film declared. "Don't you think it's time you met secret agent 007?"
Plenty of moviegoers met Bond for the first time in "From Russia With Love," the film some 007 die-hards consider the best in the series (star Sean Connery agrees). Long before 007's sophomore screen effort reached theaters, Ian Fleming's novel was already famous as one of President Kennedy's favorite books, and that endorsement guaranteed Bond would win over America as he did his native U.K.
Here we get the first pre-title teaser, but unlike most to follow, it's brief and sets up an important part of the plot (007 being targeted for assassination). The titles themselves are a knockout, all the more so thanks to Lionel Bart's striking theme, orchestrated by John Barry who, for the first of eleven times provides Bond with an exciting score that's as much a signature for the series as the famous gun-barrel sequence that opens every film.
"From Russia With Love" is slower paced by later Bond standards but smarter, too, with a comparatively modest plot involving a decoding device coveted by SPECTRE. The tongue-in-cheek humor that would come to characterize the series was pretty much introduced here in an effort to offset the charges of sadism levied against the first film, but it doesn't overtake the action, including a fight aboard the Orient Express widely hailed as one of the greatest action scenes ever staged.
If the other films in the series warrant classification in the adventure genre, "From Russia With Love" is a thriller, the only film in the series I can imagine Alfred Hitchcock directing.
