Format: DVD Verified Purchase
A landmark film, "Dr. No" (1962) introduced Ian Fleming's 007 to cinema audiences. Despite the author's initial objections, Sean Connery defined the character of James Bond with his remarkably self-assured performance. Ursula Andress' iconic beauty and Joseph Wiseman's restrained villainy were equally memorable. Thanks to the contributions of director Terence Young, set designer Ken Adam, editor Peter Hunt and composer John Barry, the 007 style was immediately established in this Jamaican adventure. Producers Harry Saltzman and Albert R. Broccoli should be applauded for getting the most out of their limited budget. "Dr. No" succeeds as an unpretentious spy thriller — minus the gadgetry and gimmicks in later Bond outings. The film's impact on popular culture cannot be underestimated.

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.

My comments apply only to the newly released Blu Ray version.
I will not review the film it's self since everyone has no doubt seen it at least once.
I have waited 2 years for the Bond films to be released in a HD format, and the waite was worth it.
The picture quality of this old film is simply awesome. The color saturation, the "depth" and contrast are very film-like.
I felt like I was discovering the film for the very first time.
Watching it on my 60'' display, it looked like I was seeing a brand new, fresh from the lab, film print in my own living room.
And it gets better, I am told (but havent viewed my copy yet) that Thunderball looks even better.
If you are a Connery James Bond fan, and own Blu Ray, this is a no-brainer.
Highest possible recommendation, and Amazon has it for a good price.

Format: DVD
Sean Connery, bless him, has a career spanning nearly 50 years. From "South Pacific" chorus boy to B-movie heavies to James Bond to bearded father figure, he has made quite a few movies: some good, some great, a lot of not-so-great, but the great Scot still has box-office draw. "Dr. No", the first big-screen James Bond film, made an instant star of Mr. Connery. It's easy to see why! The film, while a little slow-starting, is mercifully nearly "gadget-free", is shot in picturesque Jamaica, and introduced that gorgeous blonde Amazon Ursula Andress to the world, clad in the now-legendary white bikini, a sort of Aryan Girl from Ipanema. And then, of course, there is Mr. Connery. Six-foot two inches tall, with his "dark, cruel good looks", (as one film producer described him), hairy chest, and very wise deadpan delivery of his lines, is a breathtaking natural wonder. This comic book for adults, as opposed to the later Bond films with Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan, et al, which, in my opinion, are comic books for adolescent boys, is highly entertaining. It is also "of its time", which is why I felt the series should have ended with "Thunderball". This was a time of big cars with tailfins, ice-cold cocktails served on low-slung cocktail tables, sharkskin suits, and girls with "hairdos". In my opinion, when Roger Moore inherited the role, the series lost its edge. Mr. Moore, a very handsome, capable actor, was too "gentlemanly to a fault" in the role, and the silly smirkiness of the scripts and too-obvious monikers like "Holly Goodhead" and "Jaws" smacked more of Malibu than Ian Fleming. The overabundance of car chases, explosions, and gadgets detracted, rather than added to, the decline of the series.Read more ›

The beginning of Bond on the big screen!
I just watched the Blu-Ray and this film still holds up well. Younger viewers may find it lacking in visual effects and whiz-bang action, but this film is built on old-fashioned storytelling values and is nicely paced, with good characterizations. It actually follows Ian Fleming's plot fairly... Read More
