No thread? Really? Saw this yesterday in Imax and loved it. One of the best and most effective Bond movies to date, i really enjoyed it. Slight niggles include a running time that is a little too long, but other than that it's mostly perfect action entertainment. As a big fan of both Casion Royale and Quantum of Solace, this was a great 3rd movie, making a very nice trilogy. I loved Javier Bardem's villain too, great performance and i thought his character could have done with a bit more screen time.


Pack your bags, we're going on a guilt trip!

Loved it too, with reservations... it was deffo a bit long and dragged a bit in the middle. SPOILERS FOR MY NEXT PARAGRAPH IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT YET... I'M NOT JOKING!!!


Still with me... OK!

But on the plus side, it was putting down the tracks for the Bond we all know and love... there was a bit more humour, Q and Moneypenny were put in place and the politically-correct M was put out of the picture. Plus Bond seemed to pull various sticks out of his arse and looked like he was starting to enjoy his job again! When he said 'My pleasure, M, my pleasure...' wow...

I suspect that the next Bond movie will be full of splashy, funny action sequences with lots of one-liners, exotic locations and may even feature a man stroking a cat and a hollowed out volcano full of easily-disposable henchmen.

Although I'll be a bit disappointed if they go that obvious.


Say what now?

For me it was that good… and I’ve not been the biggest Craig fan thus far. But this, absolutely cracking!
That is all.

Yeah, it's the strongest of the Craig films so far.

A massive improvement over the dreadful Quantum of Solace.

To be fair, there's discussion going on in the James Bond Series thread, so that will be fine for Skyfall, really.
