    Great Bond, Lacking Blu-Ray

    Daniel Craig returns once again as James "007" Bond in the 24th films (excluding spin-offs and what-not). Here, Bond confronts a global terrorist organization known only as Spectre. They seem to have their dirty little hands in everything, everywhere and 007 is the only person who seems to believe they even exist, let alone the only one trying to stop them. Craig once again dons the tuxedo and does and excellent job of it. Fans will be pleased that this films is less "Bourne" and more old-school Bond. Familiar faces show up, Bond gets some of his gadgets for use against the villains. If you loved the Sean Connery Bonds then you'll be smiling ear-to-ear with all the references and easter-eggs hidden throughout the film. At 148-minutes, it's the longest Bond to date and some might find the bloated running time a bit difficult to get through. There's plenty of action, but it is spread out, going long stretches as Bond investigates. It's a great film, but for some reason MGM decided that extras on the Blu-Ray weren't important. Skyfall was loaded, but here we only get "Spectre: Bond's Biggest Opening Sequence; Video Blogs and a Gallery. That's it. Kind cheap if you ask me. Guess a double-dip is in order when the inevitable "Special Edition" hits the market in a few years.

    Back to the Original Bond Formula

    Watching Bond Marathons with my dad, growing, up, I kept wondering with modern Bond flicks "What happened to Bond?" Somewhere along the line, the formula was lost, albeit laughable and mocked at times (e.g. The villain telling the hero his exact plans right before killing him, which always goes wrong.). These things were what made Bond smooth and daring. It is like our relationship with China and Russia, we pretend to be friends, but we spy the heck out of each other, pretend we don't, and pretend we don't know that we know the other guy is doing the same. So, back to Spectre. Casino Royal (Craig) was the beginning of a return to grace. Skyfall, while excellent, felt a little too Dark Knight to be Bond. Spectre, on the other hand, was home from the beginning Dia de los Muertos scene in Mexico City, masks, crowds, and all...and the villain...masterful! If you miss traditional Bond, this movie is awesome! For those newer to Bond, you may not like this, but remember, the silly aspects aren't dumb, there is a deeper reasoning hidden there. If you don't enjoy it, then Bond truly never was your style of movie, but this Spectre is a true return to form for those of us longing for it!

    Daniel Craig's tenure as James Bond has been a rebooting of the 007 franchise, as a young Bond becomes a mature agent. "Spectre" is the end of that narrative arc. In this outing, Bond's opponent is a man whose name will be familiar to long time fans of the franchise. The movie opens with a terrific action sequence in Mexico, set on the Day of the Dead. Bond is off on a private mission, while MI-6, in the fallout from "Skyfall", is facing termination. With help from Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw), Bond will doggedly pursue a trail of clues to a young woman who may have some of his answers. Together, they will find and face an old acquaintance who is the head of a very evil and very powerful organization. The movie has a story, and plenty of action sequences, one after another. The movie's subtheme, about the power of information and its misuse, is very topical, and the villain himself is urbanely, cheerfully nasty. There is a worthy evil henchman to be fought, an exciting car chase sequence in Rome, after dark, and an even better chase sequence in the Austrian Alps. Highly recommended as good entertainment for fans of the franchise.

    The Butler Did It.

    Get the popcorn ready and a shaker full of Vodka Martini's (Shaken NOT stirred). Where Skyfall filled in a lot of the back story as to how the character of James Bond was raised, and why he had no family. This movie raises some new questions about where he will go from here. I do hope that the new "Q" (Quartermaster) will come up with some new toy that will allow an electromagnetic pulse (EMP emitter) to shut down ALL of the worlds electronics. and the bad guys get a hold of it. That way EVERYONE would have to use their own talents and not a laser sighted pistol or rifle. James Bonds years of training and talents would then be put to the test. as he drove the streets of London in a 1958 Bentley. With no electronics, no radio, no cell phones, only the mechanical gadgets, rescued from the MI6 museum. This movie brings past 53 years a little further into the light as to the character of James Bond and what might happen under a new "M". Pencils, erasers, carbon paper (ask your grand parents) and true human ingenuity and skill. We all love the toys, but only James Bond has the talent to use them. I hope you Enjoy this as much as we have.

    i rather liked this movie. it is kind of a ride when i go back to think i have watched all of theJames bond movies. it is neat to see the different eras in time throughout the movies.getting to see the old 60's style of bond up until today.this one starts off in mexico with the festival of the dead if that is what it is called.right at the beginning James is after a bad guy who he chases through the streets of mexico and then to the air. James gets his man,but finds a ring on the mans finger. then we cut to opening credits after a nice action scene.from there the ring take James to an organization,which wants to take out the double 0 spy group and have security surveillance connected all over the world. this is supposed to help and aid in stopping certain types of crime faster. James infiltrates and finds a familiar friend at the head of the organization.take a look and check out who it is. there is plenty of bond style action throughout the movie.

    Bond, James Bond

    This is the movie that was supposed to tie everything back into the franchise and demonstrate whether the franchise could keep turning out movies like Skyfall. The Bond series has often been noted for a great movie followed by a good movie. While it's in tune with the franchise to have Blofeld back, it's not really Fleming's Blofeld though his later appearance does tie into You Only Live Twice. As a whole, it's a really good Bond movie, better than Quantum of Solace, not as good as Skyfall. A good follow-up, which might also wrap up Craig's time as Bond (which has been excellent) would be a remake of On Her Majesties Secret Service. But the producers won't do that, and I don't know why? Still, great movie, great action sequences (the opener outshines the rest of the movie) and a bit over-the-top on a pistol taking down a helicopter at extreme range. But after all, it is Bond!

    Another Epic 007 Outing

    Director Sam Mendes did it again, once more raising the bar very, very high for whatever directors may follow him in helming subsequent Bond films. In tandem with the writers and producers, he turned a series that had devolved into abject silliness with the final two Brosnan-starring films into prestige pictures. Like "Skyfall," "Spectre" is an epic Bond outing full of thrilling action, mind-boggling stunts, lush and classy cinematography, beautiful and strong women, clever espionage, smart writing, and -- of course -- the charismatic lead performance of Daniel Craig. I was simply floored and thrilled with "Spectre." The only drawback: the awful, shrill, off-putting, whiny, falsetto-drenched title song by Sam Smith; I have to mute the sound whenever it plays over the main title sequence.

    Caught this film release weekend with 3 friends. In the moment, I ate it all up and enjoyed the pacing, aciton and still self aware nods to the original Bond films and tropes-- Bond finally ordering the martini shaken not stirred, only to find the bar doesn't sell alcohol; getting a car with gadgets... only for it to not have bullets loaded. Sure, after hearing peoples reviews and reservations I agreed that the villain could have been better, especially given the casting of Christoph Waltz, but I still enjoy this film. Best Buy's steelbook I'm sure will receive a resounding positive reception. Embossed bullet hole on front and back of the steelbook with the teaser poster image? Yes, please! Was a Day one purchase from a day one pre-order, which they charged me the lowest price when transaction posted. Great stuff, Best buy!

    Another Great Bond Movie, Another Great SteelBook

    I'm a big fan of Daniel Craig's acting and I've always felt he was a natural Bond. The scores are great and the story fails to disappoint. But what any fan really wants to know, since they've already seen the movie, is what's the SteelBook edition like? Well, I've always liked steelbooks for a few reasons: 1. they just store easier since they are shorter and just as thin if not thinner than the blue cases, 2. added protection should the movie travel with you or in a moving van, and 3. the artwork is always nice. This one is no exception and what's included is worth the price. It's too bad they don't offer a DVD with the combo, but I'm sure that will be part of the past soon enough anyway. All in all I'm happy with this edition.

    The Best Daniel Craig Bond movie yet.

    There is talk that this is Daniel Craig's last movie as James Bond. If that is so, he goes out on a very high note and will make it difficult for the new James Bond actor. The film follows Bond's path of discovery as he fights to learn the truth behind a mysterious evil organization. This organization is run by a man that just might have a past with Bond. The story is an emotional ride that does a great job of tying all the previous Daniel Craig Bond films together. If you haven't seen any of the other Daniel Craig Bond movies, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and Skyfall or it has been awhile, you should get a refresher before you see Spectre. This movie is 148 minutes long which is the longest James Bond movie made and is worth every minute. You will not be disappointed.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this 50th anniversary 007 adventure! It harkens back to its original Sean Connery era roots, while not being retro-continuity reliant. This means that the story isn't overly confusing or focused on just pleasing the hardcore Bond enthusiast. The performances were good, but not as strong as the previous movie Skyfall. (Which makes it waaaaay better than any of the Roger Moore era movies!) While the story doesn't insult the viewer's intelligence, it's still fun & exciting. If you consider the previous 3 Daniel Craig Bond movies as a sort of "new origins" trilogy, this one is a brand-new (stand alone) story. I highly recommend this movie if you're seeking something that's not your typical, run-of-the-mill, mindless blockbuster.

    Great salute to the classic Bond franchise

    Spectre pays a well deserved salute to the days of Sean Connery by reviving an old villain (setting up for future installments) and creating new ones that remind us of the henchmen from the past (Odd Job and Jaws). As the title implies, Spectre, the global terrorist organization emerges to the surface after clues from the earlier Daniel Craig films are tied together. With Skyfall being more of a transition film, Spectre follows closely to the classic plot line with a great action packed opening, multiple locations around the globe and, of course, the two beautiful women who play their parts. It still has the nervous grit that we've come to love with these new chapters and injects just the right amount of over the top unbelievability.

    The movie itself is alright--if you enjoyed Skyfall you'll probably like this one (though Skyfall is better). Trying to force all the previous Craig movies into this storyline really took away from it I think, but Craig is awesome as usual and seemed to have a little more fun this time around. Anyway, if you're like me you're here for the Steelbook, and this one is gorgeous. If you're a collector you won't regret this one. On a side note I've had nearly all my steelbooks shipped to me that I've purchased at BB (easily over 20) and I've only had one get crushed, even though the packaging is not the best. It makes me cringe everytime I open that padded envelope but I've been pretty lucky so far.

    This is the fourth of my Daneil Craig James Bond collection . It took me a minute to sit down and watch because I felt it was not goin to be that good , how I was so wrong ! The story line was fluid , characters where strong and for the first time was wrong , I couldn't tell how the ending was going to be ! Am sad that the main character will not proceed filming as bond but so happy he went out with a bang ! I rated this movie with the highest stars possible but would give them more !! Daniel has put his own stamp on the Bond character and in my opinion the best ! I thank him for his roll and wished he changed his mind so I can keep purchasing his flicks !!!

    Craig is the Best Bond Ever

    Daniel Craig is the only Bond cast into this role who looks and acts like all the crazy people I know who actually do this for a living. While real life inspiration(s) for the fictional Bond may have been more "gentlemanly" than maniac, I think the current incarnation of Craig as Bond the bloody action hero rather than Bond the teflon socialite makes the movies much more entertaining and, albeit a little bit, more believable. Even a little bit more believable helps counter the "willful suspension of disbelief" required to enjoy fiction. I am not as concerned about the gender and race of the next Bond as I am about whether the new persona will be just as crazy.

    First, you HAVE to have this movie if you're a James Bond fan. (Granted, you need to have Casino Royale and Skyfall, which you surely do - right?) Second, love this packaging (except for storage, doesn't quite line up with the other BlueRay or DVD boxes). I didn't have Quantum of Solace before, but I bought it in the Steelbox edition, and found out I liked it better than I had remembered. Third, digital is the future. So you might as well pick up that format that you can keep forever, and then sell the Steelbox whenever the next platform -4K, 8K, whatever - is available and upgrade your collection. Well, that's my plan, at least. Have fun !!!

    This version SPECTRE is a through-back to some of the older Bond movies with Sean Connery. Sometimes it's rattling to see the newer versions of the older characters; Q is much younger, and the spectacular car the Aston Martin DB10 was wrecked during it's premier appearance... That car deserves many more appearances! The plot and action are Bondesque, and it was nice to see Bond drive off in the original Aston Martin DB7. I have all the original bond moviee on blue ray, plus the one unofficial movie with Sean Connery, and Spectre completes my collection so far. I thought this was the last Bond movie, but the credits seem to indicate more Bond to come...

    Tgis film is a treat for James Bond and Daniel Craig fans. It ties together all the prior movies with Mr. Craig and is still familiar for those fans who started out with the franchise when Sean Connery debuted. The scenery, plot and acting are first rate, as well as the usual gadgets and obligatory explosions. As a longtime Bond fan, I was not disappointed by this film. Cristoph Waltz is a brilliant part of this movie and adds a complex villian to the mix. Well worth seeing. The Steel book packaging exclusively from Best Buy is a nice touch. Also nice is having both the blu ray and digital copies of the flim to watch.

    First of all, I'm a big fan of Daniel Craig as James Bond. He is, in my opinion, the best Bond yet. I've found the first three Craig movies very enjoyable, with Skyfall being my favorite. Spectre is a sort of wrap up of the story arc spanning all four Daniel Craig movies and does a very good job of tying things together. It's a bit more old school than the previous three movies featuring more traditional Bond gadgets. Of course, like all Bond movies, it has plenty of action and chases. Overall, I found it very enjoyable and it certainly didn't disappoint, however, I still liked Skyfall the best.
