This is more of a blog post than a review, coming from someone just starting the Bond series.
Relative to the previous year's Dr. No (this is a sequel, yes?), From Russia With Love can only be called an improvement. Sean Connery has clearly had the time to fully adapt to the role - a role which he, as the first Bond, has more or less created - and it certainly shows. A lot more of the hallmarks of Bond I came into the series expecting were present too - gadgets, authoritarian Russian women, bombs, unstoppable beasts of men, chase scenes, and even a passing reference to "shaken not stirred".
And those credits were hella cool.
