This movie set the standard.By a customer from London, England , 01 Apr 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]The first turned out to be the best. Although undoubtedly suave and sophisticated, there was an edge to 007 in this film that kept faith with Fleming's character as written in the novels, an edge which was progressively lost as the series of films developed, to such an extent that in later years Bond was almost camp! Sean Connery excelled in the role and the Director's introduction of Bond to the screen audience remains amongst the most memorable screen moments. Picture the card table in the casino and the use of the camera to pan around to reveal Connery's face for the first time as he delivers the immortal words 'Bond ... James Bond' in the feline manner that only he could ooze. Pure magic ! Roger Moore et al could not have captured that moment. And all that before you consider Ursula Andress' arrival on the beach !

Dr No BLU-RAY versionBy a customer from Wakefield , 26 Mar 2009This was the first and best of the Bond movies. It remained faithful to the pen of Ian Fleming, something that can't be said of other Bond films. Sean Connery is superb - young and dynamic and full of charisma that none of his successors have quite been able to portray to the same degree of excellence. He expresses urgency or emotion with the mere raising of an eyebrow and a subtle changing pitch in his voice. Then of course, there's the added bonus of Ursula Andress - the very first Bond girl, who again in my opinion hasn't been bettered. I've watched this timeless classic many times; sometimes intending to watch the first 20 minutes, but always encaptured and watch to the end. Not many films possess this magnetism. The picture quality is greatly enhanced by BLU-RAY.
pretty goodBy a customer from newcastle under lyme , 02 Feb 2009Just watched this bond film as ive not seen the early ones so watching them in order. And its pretty good even with its age , good story and sean connery as a good james bond.
'Doctor No' (1962)By a customer from Romford , 31 Jan 2009Sean Connery acting was slick and so believable, the girls were 'drop-dead' gorgeous and the scenery brilliant. Nothing to fault this James Bond film.
Dr NoBy a customer from Nottingham , 22 Jan 2009I thought this was the most wonderful nostalgic tosh! Absolutely great. Dated, but such fun. Such things as the scene in which Ursula Andress emerges from the sea, would simply not happen in that way today. She would be wearing (almost) something unimaginably skimpy, which would be forcibly removed by James. .; . enough already! I really enjoyed my trip down memory lane. What a shame therefore that I forgot to cancel the following 'special feature'. Can't be doing with it. It all gets far too serious. It is a game; let's leave it there.
