Octopussy, a colorful cold war thriller and one of Roger Moore's better Bond outings, stars Louis Jourdan as a corrupt Afghan prince and Maud Adams (making her second Bond appearance) as the ringmaster of an all-babe traveling circus team that unknowingly carries a nuclear bomb. Christopher Walken hams it up under a platinum-blond hairdo while his Amazon bodyguard, Grace Jones, growls through A View to a Kill, a silly but often visually impressive adventure that made it obvious Moore was too old and stiff to carry on the Bond legacy. The torch was passed to Timothy Dalton in The Living Daylights, an attempt to clear away the camp elements of Moore's portrayal and return to a lean, hard-edged spy thriller for the post-cold war era. It lacks the larger-than-life characters and spectacle of previous Bond pictures, but Dalton was a tough, ruthless 007 and a worthy inheritor of the legacy, which was then passed on to Pierce Brosnan.
The DVD editions of the films each feature audio commentary by the director and key members of the crew, "making of" documentaries, and a host of stills, TV spots, trailers, and other supplements. --Sean Axmaker

Each individual film features a highly informative "behind the scenes" documentary which includes interviews with principal film and crew members. Bond fans will be fascinated as the secrets behind many of the series' best known stunts are revealed. For example, there is a riveting sequence on "Inside A View to a Kill" in which stuntmen give us an inside look at how they accomplished the very dramatic and dangerous leap from the Eiffel Tower. Really good stuff!
In addition to the "behind the scenes" sagas, each disc also features an additional documentary. The topics covered are: Producer Harry Saltzman (on From Russia with Love disc), the brilliant James Bond Title Sequences (You Only Live Twice disc), Producer Cubby Broccoli (Diamonds Are Forever), Set Designer Peter Lamont(Octopussy), Bond Creator Ian Fleming (The Living Daylights) and The Music of James Bond (View to a Kill). Again, I found each documentary to be most enlightening and entertaining. In fact, I'd venture to say these extras alone make this package worthwhile. But, wait there's more....
Each disc includes a feature length audio commentary which consists of interviews with directors, cast and crew. The only dissapointment among the bunch was the commentary of "From Russia with Love" in which commentators seem to ramble endlessly about topics not related to the film.
You'll also get to view numerous trailers for each film.Read more ›
Out of this collection includes "From Russia With Love," "You Only Live Twice," "Diamonds Are Forever," "Octopussy," and "A View To A Kill," and "The Living Daylights." I enjoy all of these movies, especially "From Russia With Love" and "Diamonds Are Forever." In fact, I enjoy all of the Bond films included in this collection. These just happen to be a few that I enjoy the most.
Each of the movies are filled with documentaries, original movie trailers, director commentaries, and tons of extra features that really enhance the DVD versions of the 007 films. If you have not yet experienced James Bond 007 on DVD, it's time for you to do so. I've seen all of the movies on VHS, and after watching them on DVD, it gives you a totally new experience. Also on the DVD version of the collection is the Widescreen presentation, filmed in the true widescreen of 2.35:1. It's just like watching the films over again in the theater. I would recommend this collection along with the other two collections for anybody who is looking for Bond the way it should be. I hope you enjoy!
James Bond will return!
