My thoughts on the films...

CASINO ROYALE: A
I really love this movie. As a fan of 007 and a proud owner of the Bond 50 box set, I recently saw all the Bond movies (some again, others for the first time). "Casino Royale" is my favorite Bond film of them all. I think this film does everything right and finds the correct tone for what a Bond movie should be. The action sequences are very intense - the stunts in the opening chase are still impressive after dozens of viewings. I believe Daniel Craig is the perfect Bond, and this was a great way to introduce him into the franchise. I also liked Eva Green, who makes an excellent Bond girl (and one that Bond truly cares for); as well as Mads Mikkelsen, who plays the villain Le Chiffre. It's an added bonus that the film is set around a game of poker, a game that I personally love and appreciate.

QUANTUM OF SOLACE: B
"Quantum of Solace" deals with the aftermath of the events in "Casino Royale" and picks up right where that film left off. This movie has some good performances and remarkable stunts. I enjoy it, although I do think it is the weaker of the two films in this collection. One thing I do not like is that the action scenes are cut in a very frantic manner - the editing is choppy and relies too often on close-ups; it is often difficult to tell what is going on and where characters are in relation to one another.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCT: Quantum of Solace / Casino Royale [Blu-ray]

This set is simply a repackaging of the individual films. If you already own the movies, there's no reason to consider this purchase. But if you do not yet own these films, then this product is highly recommended - it's the first two Daniel Craig Bond films in one package at an affordable price.

There is one small flaw in this product: Casino Royale previously had a two-disc collectors edition - Disc 1 had the movie and Disc 2 had special features. Unfortunately, Disc 2 from that set is not included in this collection, so you will be missing out on the bonus material that was on that disc. I know this won't matter to everyone, but it will clearly be a factor for completists as well as people who like to watch the bonus features on the making of the movies.

This set is fantastic if you don't already own the blu ray editions or have the Bond 50 set. I like the fact you can buy the Daniel Craig movies seperate from buying the whole package at this value price. The quality of the transfers is great. They basically put the Bond 50 editions in this package of two disc. This would have been nicer if it had Skyfall with it like the Overseas versions I have seen. I would also like to see them issue a set for each Bond individually like this instead there is only standard DVD sets available here in the US.

First off, it is blu ray, which means it is more durable and it has a crisper picture. Secondly, Casino Royale is an amazing movie, I never get tired of it. Quantum of Solace was ok, but nothing I would watch on a regular basis. For the low price of ~$8 I couldn't resist. Good deal, don't second guess it, just buy it if you have the money to do so of course :)

I have truly enjoyed Daniel Craig's Bond character. He is handsome, athletic and witty. Casino Royale is my favorite Bond movie. This bluray set also includes Quantum of Solace, the sequel to Casino Royale. Both movies are action packed with gorgeous scenery. My husband and I just love watching them with full surround sound, a martini at hand (shaken not stirred) and some popcorn. Love it.

This is an outstanding set of Danile Craig's two best outings as James Bond. CASINO ROYALE and QUANTUM OF SOLACE are fantastic Bond films. Since QUANTUM OF SOLACE is a direct squeal to CASINO ROYAL this makes this set all the more advantageous and attractive. The transfers are quite good, especially QUANTUM OF SOLACE. The colors on QUANTUM OF SOLACE are just gorgeous and incredibly sharp and quite pristine.

I was also amazed at the extras that are included with the CASINO ROYALE disc. Basically, most of the extras from the CASINO ROYALE collectors edition (on DVD) from the 3rd disc are included here and they do look excellent. I was very pleased.

I highly recommend this Quantum of Solace / Casino Royale [Blu-ray] edition.

This two pack is a great deal for the first two Bond films with Daniel Craig. Without a doubt, Daniel Craig plays James Bond better than any of his predecessors. His cold, focused approach to his position in a kill-or-be-killed world makes him highly believable.

What is there not to like of Daniel Craig's Bond. It is one of the best acted Bond movies thus far and the collection of the first two movies are simply fantastic ! If you haven't bought it yet then just click it in your cart and buy ! No regrets !

What's not to like about 2 of the 3 "latest" Bond movies at a smoking deal? I had previously purchased the Bond"Starfall" Blue Ray so this particular set worked for me. Caught the Christmas sale where this was under $15.

If you like chases this is for you. Motorcycle and car chases and a great train sequence. Good story with lots of action and a few pretty gals thrown in also. Be sure to watch the extras on the making of the movie - very interesting.

The Blu Ray Picture and sound are wonderful, as is every Blu Ray I've owned. 4 Stars because Quantum of Solace is one of my lesser like Bond movies and special features are lacking. Casino Royale is, of course, amazing.
