7 / 10
Apart from Goldfinger this is the next best bond movie,along with its Japanese locations and ingenious underground volcanic base it`s got it all apart from the absence of the DB5, and it certainly has the best theme tune of all the bond movies. Picture is presented in 2.35 widescreen and looks very good but the soundtrack used is in mono which for dvd is a bit of a dissapointment. I must say one thing as to the review by the member of staff for this site on his comment as regards who is the best bond and if put to the vote he would find that there is only one bond and that is Connery, Sean Connery, as far as Roger Moore is concerned he will always be remembered by me as The Saint full stop.
