    From Russia With Love is a moive that you can watch over and over again.
    Connery at his best. The villian Red Grant is spetacular. Starting with
    stealing the Lector, to the train fight, then the helicopter with the
    gernades, to the boat chase is filled with action. Makes the book easier
    to understand. One of the best songs and good supporting characters.

    From Russia With Love

    Best of the Bond Movies - Sean Connery was simply superb as James Bond. All of the actors gave wonderful performances. The first Bond movies had great scripts and contained drama, excitement and humor. Writers didn't need to blow up everything and everyone in sight to keep people engaged and entertained. Russia With Love is sung beautifully by Matt Monro!

    I'ts Connerys Favorite, and the Best.

    After recently watching the debacle that was Quantum of Solace, I had to return to what a Bond movie should be. From Russia with Love, the second in the franchise, establishes the foundation for all that follows. The theme, The chase music, the opening song, the gadgets, and the best plot of any Bond movie. There is a hierarchy of villians, and the SPECTRE's enforcer is played by Robert Shaw, who is as menacing as Connery is suave; their fight on the Orient Express took three weeks to film, and it is a brutal match. The setting is Istanbul, no more exotic and familiar place on Earth, from the Grand Bazaar to Hagia Sophia to the Basilica Cistern underneath. The film ends in Venice, a perfect bookend. We also get to meet SPECTRE's #1, Ernst Stavro Blofeld, and of course, the accesory of every super villain, a white cat to stroke as he schemes.

    From Russia With Love

    Many people say that Goldfinger was the film that made the James Bond series what it is today. But, for me that isn't the case. I loved From Russia With Love. I think, in my own opinion, that this was truely Sean Connery's best performance as Bond. I loved the way Daniela Bianchi played Tatiana Romanova as the same for Lotte Lenya as Rosa Klebb. Even though this movie is different than Ian Fleming's original Bond novel, it is still one of the Best Bond films.

    ''COMPLETLY PHENOMINAL''

    The first minute gets your mind thinking really hard right off the bat. It stimulates the mind. It involves state-of-the-art gadgetry, hot bond girls, and ultimate action throughout the whole movie. I gave this film a perfect 5 stars because it's the #1 hit of all bond films! The story is exceptionally good and it never gets boring. This film also includes a great chase too, that's the signiture part of a bond film. Overall it's a terrific film and I hope to see more 007 films like that one.

    Excellent for its era

    I loved this video, especially Lotte Lenya as Col. Klebb, and the action and scenery is wonderful, for one who does NOT think Connery was the best Bond.
