Agent 007 drives an Aston-Martin, fries Oddjob and foils Goldfinger's scheme to rob Fort Knox. The third James Bond movie.
To own Goldfinger (1964) on digital video disc is to have at your fingertips the proof that Sean Connery is the definitive James Bond. Dry as ice, dripping with deadpan witticisms, only Connery's Bond would dare disparage the Beatles, that other 1964 phenomenon. No one but Connery can believably seduce women so effortlessly, kill with almost as much ease, and then pull another bottle of Dom Perignon '53 out of the fridge. Goldfinger contains many of the most memorable scenes in the Bond series: gorgeous Shirley Eaton (as Jill Masterson) coated in gold paint by evil Auric Goldfinger and deposited in Bond's bed; silent Oddjob, flipping a razor-sharp derby like a Frisbee to sever heads; our hero spread-eagle on a table while a laser beam moves threateningly toward his crotch. Honor Blackman's Pussy Galore is the prototype for the series' rash of man-hating supermodels. And Desmond Llewelyn makes his first appearance as Q, giving Bond what is still his most impressive car, a snazzy little number that fires off smoke screens, punctures the tires of vehicles on the chase, and boasts a handy ejector seat. Goldfinger's two climaxes, inside Fort Knox and aboard a private plane, have to be seen to be believed. --Raphael Shargel

Bond: Do you expect me to talk?
Goldfinger: No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die.
One of the fatal flaws in evil overlords is the tendency to monologue while the hero gets ready to escape. Goldfinger didn't do that, preferring to get rid of his potential competition, whether a shady Mafia character or a British Secret Agent. I still enjoy the professionalism of Bond in this movie. While there's some humanity in him, there is not the angst over people dying. It's part of the business, and we don't need to see what comes after the movie is over when Bond goes off to hibernate for several days after a harrowing adventure.
If one were to view only three movies in the Bond franchise, it would be to watch Dr. No, Goldfinger, and Thunderball, probably in that order. These movies provide great classic entertainment.
Great nostalgic film love the classic Bond films. I almost feel like the newer films would be better if they followed the old formula and were set in the 60's and 70's those are the best spy films IMO.
The special edition is zoomed in from the european widescreen version, making it 16:9 without black bars which is missing a bit of picture on the top and bottom.
The ultimate edition is presented on european widescreen which is 1.66:1 or 16:10 and is digitally remastered. Audio commentary also included.
One of my favourite films!
