Top Gear: 50 Years of Bond Cars
Street Date: February 12, 2013
Available On: DVD
The Film: Richard Hammond celebrates surrounding James Bond's fiftieth anniversary with a guided tour of all the cars featured in the various Bond films with an emphasis on the Aston Martain DB5 and Lotus Esprit.
The Extras: None
Recommendation: If you're a fan of both the James Bond films as well as the BBC program "Top Gear" there’s absolutely no reason why you won't enjoy this 60-minute special. Longtime fans of the program won't be too shocked by the fact that certain Bond eras are essentially dismissed are irrelevant (at least from the car point of view). Daniel Craig and Roger Moore make appearances, but it's director Guy Hamilton who supplies the most interesting insights.
