A great movie---even better at 1080P,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: From Russia with Love [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I love the movie "From Russia with Love"---end of story. This review is about the Blu-Ray edition. By way of comparison, I also own the recently upgraded DVD version of this film that was included in the James Bond Ultimate Edition set. That movie (the DVD) was restored to a sensational level of quality. In fact, I doubted it could be visually improved upon. I was wrong. The Blu-Ray edition looks even more sensational than the most recent DVD edition that was included in the Ultimate Edition set. In fact, it was clearly restored from a master print, with an almost indescribable level of visual detail included. This Blu-Ray edition is so good that it's like watching a brand new movie. Watching it with my family I repeatedly heard the comment "wow. Look at that. I never noticed that before . . ." The studio did a first rate job of restoring the movie for the Blu-Ray edition. And, after all . . . it's a James Bond film. I'll be getting the other Blu-Ray Bond films; if the restoration is half this good, it will be worth every penny.

I've been on the fence about upgrading, having bought all the Bond DVD's. But your review of my FAVORITE of them all has convince me I should start getting them on Blu-ray. Great job!

Thank you! I've been scouring these reviews trying to find some comparison between the absolutely gorgeous transfer that was on the Ultimate Edition and this blu ray. I've been very satisfied with the ultimate edition dvds as they were beautifully done, but thank you for bringing up the comparison. I may well pick up a few of these blu rays.
