The first of the seven James Bond movies in the big DVD pack. I grew up watching two James Bond movies over and over again, this one and For Your Eyes Only. Frankly this is the worse of the two, but still not a bad movie. Accepting James Bond into your life means realizing that there is a set template for every one of his movies and only the details change. True fans look forward to the template, only caring that the details change. Live and Let Die has the following attributes:

The DVD is not bad at all. It has a 16x9 enhanced transfer, a directors commentary, a making of feature and a dolby pro-logic soundtrack. Overall, one of the weaker Bond films with the overdone black stereotype and the lack of any real feeling. Still, it is Bond, and therefore rocks.
