The most successful feature film series in movie history — forget STAR WARS or Harry Potter. The 007 franchise — when adjusted for inflation –raked in $11 billion. Even unadjusted, $4 billion is nothing to sneeze at. Launched with the panache of Sean Connery and the style of Terence Young (FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE is arguably the best in the series), through GOLDFINGER — which set the tempo of the series for years to come. George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, Daniel Craig — must stand in the shadow of Connery. (Craig is, arguably the best Bond since the heyday of Connery.) Sean Connery has onscreen presence. Even when he is sleepwalking through the part as he was in YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE he has more presence than Roger Moore at his best. (John Brosnan in his revision to JAMES BOND IN THE CINEMA referred to Moore in MOONRAKER as “a hurricane of action revolving around a blank spot on the screen.”) 007 has consistantly set the standard for action cinema. Screw Jason Bourne. Take the gross of DIE ANOTHER DAY and you have more box office revenue than the first two Bourne films combined. The difference between Bourne Ultimatum and CASINO ROYALE ? Over $200 million. Pretenders come and go but there is only one Bond, James Bond. Much of the bonus material has been available on previous editions of the series but there are some interesting additions.

THIS WOULD BE AND EXCELLANT CHOICE FOR ANYONE WHO IS A JAMES BOND FAN. I BOUGHT THIS ULTIMATE SET FOR MY HUSBAND FOR HIS BIRTHDAY BECAUSE HE LOVES TO WATCH JAMES BOND MOVIES AND WE BOTH ABSOLUTELY LOVE EVERY ONE OF THE MOVIES IN THE SET. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND CUSTOMERS TO PURCHASE THIS SET. SEVERAL YEARS BACK THEY CAME OUT WITH ABOUT 3 DIFFERENT SETS OF JAMES BOND MOVIES ON DVD AND I PURCHASED THE 1ST ONE AND GAVE TO MY HUSBAND FOR CHRISTMAS. ON SALE I PAID 74.99 AND THE OTHER TWO SETS WOULD HAVE COST 89.00 A PIECE AND I NEVER GOT AROUND TO AFFORDING TO BUY THE REST OF THEM. THIS ULTIMATE SET IS SO MUCH BETTER, FIRST OF ALL THE SLIM CASES THE DVD’S COME IN ARE AWESOME AND THEN THERE ARE EXTRAS ON THE DVD THAT WERE NOT AVAILABLE ON THE OTHER SET THAT I BOUGHT. THE COST OF THE ULTIMATE EDITION SET THAT YOU OFFER IS AND EXCELLENT PRICE AND I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TO ANY CUSTOMER LOOKING FOR JAMES BOND MOVIES IN A SET.I AM GOING TO GIVE THAT OTHER 1ST SERIES TO SOME FRIENDS OF OURS BECAUSE WE WILL NEVER WATCH THAT SET AGAIN NOW THAT WE HAVE THE ULTIMATE JAMES BOND SET. THANK YOU AMAZON.COM FOR OFFERING SUCH A WONDERFUL DEAL ON THIS ULTIMATE SET AND WE ARE THOROUGHLY ENJOYING IT. I FORGOT TO ORDER THE LATEST JAMES BOND MOVIE THOUGH CALLED CASINO ROYALE SO I WILL HAVE TO PURCHASE THAT IN THE NEAR FUTURE IN ORDER TO COMPLETE THE SET. I RENTED CASINO ROYALE WITH JAMES BOND WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT AND IT IS EXCELLANT AND I WISH TO RECOMMEND IT ALSO AND TO EVENTUALLY ADD IT TO OUR COLLECTION. LET ME ADD TO MY REVIEW THAT THE ULTIMATE EDITION SET INCLUDES EVERY MOVIE JAMES BOND EVER MADE EXCEPT TWO AND THEY TELL YOU WHICH TWO AND GIVE YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO ORDER THOSE TWO ALONG WITH THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION SET. AGAIN THE PRICE OF THAT ENTIRE ULTIMATE SET THROUGH AMAZON.COM IS AND AWESOME PRICE AND TRULY SAVES YOU A TON OF MONEY AND GIVES YOU HOURS,DAYS,AND WEEKS OF ENTERTAINMENT. YOU CAN WATCH THEM OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND SEE ALL THE EXTRAS THEY INCLUDE ON EACH DVD.

I have reviewed this box set and I do not see the movie “Never Say Never Again” when Sean Connery came back for his last Bond movie. Is there any other Bond Movie left off this collection? None that I know of, other then the latest movie.

I got all 20 Bond DVDs that were out for less than $200; a value over $400 in my opinion. Great buy.

The dvd cases are small, and the “ultimate edition” pamphlets for each movie are separate from the dvds themselves (since the cases are not the regular size).

I can understand why, given there are 20 movies, but it’s kinda nice to be able to show them all off.
