The book has a strange layout and doesn't tackle the films chronologically. While this may seem a fresh approach it is a sly way to add in a lot of filler without it being as noticeable. The hero cars (barring the DB5) seem to get no preferential treatment over all the other random vehicles in the films (and there are a lot). The last third of the book is reserved for 'other vehicles' and anything that had a motor in or on it is there. Waste of space. There are glaring mistakes in the content. One caption for The Living Daylights car lists it as an Aston Martin V9 Vantage. A V9? Also the author doesn't mention the fact that there were actually two different Aston models featured in the film but made to look as the same car. The FYEO Esprits get a few scant paragraphs while we get pages and pages on the history of Rolls Royce, a brand that is only a background player in the Bond films. The Aston Martin DBS featured in OHMSS has about a page of information on it but then there is not one single picture of it!
And that brings me to the pictures. The photography is probably the most offending thing about this tome. Made up of mostly grainy, screen grabs and production stills we've seen a million times over, it really leaves something to be desired. There are snapshots of few cars on exhibition that look like they were taken by someone on holiday. These photos paired with the uninspired writing offers little insight on the cars that the average Bond fan wouldn't already know. I'll keep on waiting for a better one. This is going back.
it has a little bit about each car do not expect details
Not organized by movie year release but by grouping them in Bond Cars, Villain and other
its cool has all the bond movies up to Specter along with the cars, boats and other gadgets
When it does hit those racks in the near future, it'll be the perfect obligatory gift for the person you don't really know or care about, but might haves seen a Bond movie at some point in their life.I'm not sure what the book is really about, or who its intended audience is. Most James Bond fans are at least as familiar with the information in here, and the prose is less than compelling. As another reviewer points out, the text is not without inaccuracies. As a catalog of "cars" it's fairly indiscriminate, and includes cars, helicopters, airplanes, motorcycles etc. I may have missed it it, but it wouldn't surprise me if it included bicycles as well.
The book's greatest sin is the photography. This is a coffee table book- but outside of the nicely done dust jacket, there's little to recommend it. The photos in a book are a mix of stock photos, stills, screen caps, and images that were taken at shows. The lighting in most is awful and many are poorly cropped. The layout and choice of photos would be embarrassingly bad if it were a high school kid laying out the entire yearbook the night before it's due. Why, for example, does a still of Roger Moore, cigar in hand, next to a wrecked 1st gen Fox Mustang rate a 2 page spread?
As I said, mediocre at best. Horrible at the price.
