As much as I don't think Daniel Craig is not suitable to play bond, it look nonetheless very entertaining.

Saw it last night. I thought it was great. Much better than the reviews said it would be. If you don't like the first three minute intro. there's something wrong with you.

Partial nudity is back into the credits, I think they are building James a brick at a time from the beginning. If you remember movie No 1, Dr. No did not have any partial nudity in the credits. In Casino Royal there was no partial nudity in the credits. He was not a 00 in the beginning and you saw him get his DB4.

I think the critics have missed the point, James is developing his personality, he is developing his persona a piece at a time. He still does not know how he likes his martini. His environment and his friends are also being built a brick at a time. M does not trust him, he is hot headed, Felix and he are not friends yet, they only know each other and think they work sort of on the same side. Felix has much more character development in this movie.

This movie has a number of new firsts for James. I won't really mention them, so as not to spoil it for you. You need to think of Casino Royal as the first movie. Forget all the others he is not there yet. You see Q again for the second time, but I think he again has no lines. I suspect that will come in future movies. We almost get close to an "evil lair" but not quite. No I won't spoil it.

Since this movie is really just a continuation of Casino Royale, it ends it very well. That chapter closes, but the hints of new problems continue. The new enemy has been at least identified as the "global organization of terrorists we know nothing about". If you are a Bond fan you know it is SPECTRE, they just have not found out their name yet. They have been updated for today, much more sinister, secret and better connected than before.

All this and the critics say it has no plot. "It is just a Bond turned Borne." Are they just stupid, or did they never read any of the books. Bond over the years was turned into joke of him self. The books were never written as comedies.

Enjoy the movie for all the action, car crashes, explosions, and great fight scenes. But know lurking underneath it all is a developing plot, character development and Daniel Craig, doing an incredible job as young James, now ready to be the James Bond.

saw it last night, great action scenes, kinda stupid villain/ evil plot, bond had like 3 lines. Entertaining, but not quite as involved as casino royale.

The bad guy had incredible potential to play an amazing villain and they blew it. He has such an insane psychopath look to him which they shouldve used a little more.

Danial craig is way to serious to play bond they need more funnier actor.

I didn't know an Alfa was as fast as a DBS...that's my only gripe.

Awesome movie nonetheless!

I thought the movie was great and I'm pretty sure they revealed the name of the group as Quantum like 5 times at the Opera BTW. I thought they really didn't need to change anything about the movie it was just right. They are developing the characters.

Oh and the martini he has on the plane is Amazing!
