Best Bond movieBy Richyroo from Suffolk , 24 Aug 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]The best Bond movie ever made. It was the first of the James Bond films to feature a plethora of gadgets, most of which are fitted to his Aston Martin DB5 which he uses in a spectacular car chase scene.
On top of that, who can forget the remarkable Honor Blackman as 'Pussy Galore' and Oddjob with his lethal bowler hat?
And then there are those classic lines that stick with you forever...
"You expect me to talk?"
"No Mr.Bond...I expect you to die!"

Gold standard BondBy TheWatchman (746 reviews) from Suburbia , 26 Sep 2013Dr No was good, From Russia With Love was great, but the third Connery offering really set the standard for future Bond movies. It really does have everything: one of the most memorable henchmen (Oddjob), a villain with some of the most evil lines ever, No, Mr Bond, I expect you to DIE! and girls with the most how should I put it? interesting names, i. e. P*ssy Galore. Really, what more do you want from a Bond film? Whether youre watching it alone for the action, or as part of a Saturday afternoon family viewing, it works for everyone. It centres around a megalomaniac gold dealer, Goldfinger to be precise, and his attempts at destroying the U. S.s gold reserves in Fort Knox. Obviously, Bond has something to say about this and sets about stopping him. Its also the first Connery Bond film that doesnt rely on Spectre as the bad guys, proving that Bond doesnt need his arch enemy to make a good adventure. If you like how Bond used to be before the seriousness of the Daniel Craig era then Goldfinger is the pinnacle of Connerys time in the Aston Martins hotseat and, even after all these years, is still up there with the best of Bonds output.

No..I expect you to die Mr.Bond!By oJo (29 reviews) from Hemel Hempstead , 02 Mar 2013Now in glorious blu-ray this is a must see for any Bond fan. Not too over the top with special effects and some wonderful tongue in cheek lines from Connery make this one of the most enjoyable outings for Bond. Still love that sound of the Aston. If only!..
The Gold standard on Bond moviesBy The KnightWatcher (629 reviews) from Gloucestershire , 08 Feb 20131964 James Bond Drama. Absolutely ground breaking Bond that set the Gold standard for the next 42 years until Casino Royale. Until 2006 Goldfinger was the best Bond movie of all time . Great villain, and the introduction of the immortalized Aston Martin, and who can forget Miss Galore who turns out to be a goody, and the model of Fort Knox. And of course the girl killed by spraying her gold. If you never seen it-do not pass go-go and watch it immediately.
Goldfinger (1964)By lukemcgrath (28 reviews) from Newcastle upon Tyne , 11 Nov 2011With the first pre-credit Bond mission, the first gadget packed car and yet another woman; this is the Bond film that delivers everything.
No Mr.Bond, I expect you to die!By Bassman71 (696 reviews) from Didsbury, England , 07 Dec 2010007's third outing, Evil Genius plans to make Fort Knox gold radioactive, price of his gold will sky rocket, Bond has other ideas.
Very iconic but slightly daft Bond this time. Connery has never looked better & even now uses the one liners after some grisly moments & making use of top notch gadgets including the wonderful Aston Martin DB5 with oil slick, guns & ejector seat.
Gert Frobe puts in a good turn as Goldfinger complete with evil henchman Oddjob however I didn't think the Bond girls were as sexy as the earlier films despite Shirley Eaton's all-gold paint job.
Action scenes in this are a bit silly with a lot of the film speeded up & some truly awful acting when people are shot or killed.
Great opening song though with Shirley Bassey giving it her all.
