This is Classic James Bond at his best! Great cast, very enjoyable action movie I can watch over and over again. For the 1960s this movie was WAY ahead of it's time.

Very dated. Very sexist. Not all that enjoyable.

Great start to a classic franchise! Sean Connery IS James Bond... the rest are just imitators.

"My Favorite In The Series"
Terry Richard | Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada | 09/24/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)
""Dr. No" was the first James Bond film released to theaters in 1962, and it is heavily regarded by both fans and critics alike as being one of the best in the Bond franchise. In the story Bond travels to Jamaica to investigate the death of a fellow British Secret Service agent. While there he encounters the dangerous Dr. No, a madman attempting to distrupt an American space launch.
The film has all the ingredients that would become famous with other Bond films; a sexy leading man, played superbly by Sean Connery (in my estimation the best James Bond period), a great theme song, outstanding visual photography at various locations around the world, a neat opening, wonderful villins, and a beautiful Bond girl, this time played wonderfully by Ursulla Andress. "Hawaii Five-O" star Jack Lord has a supporting role in "Dr. No" as a CIA agent.
The film print is outstanding, probably one of the best jobs a studio has done in restoring old movies to DVD and Blue ray. The colors are strong and vibrant, and it looks like the movie was shot yesterday.
"Dr. No" became one of the biggest Bond money makers grossing nearly $60,000,000 at the boxoffice on a $1,000,000."
