Still not sure about the Danny Craig choice, but big thumbs up to the latest 007 for limited CG, explosions and car chases. Pretty inventive for having to work with well-trodden material. No Q scene and it was still lots 'o entertainment.

Daniel Craig is the best Bond since Sean Connery.

Pierce Brosnan wasn't bad, but he never sold the character. James Bond is supposed to be a mysterious, dark, government-sanctioned homicide enthusiast that takes delight in the fact that he has a license to kill and plenty of reason to exercise it. Finally that's back and I look forward to the next movie (Spectre anyone?)

Fantastic opening action scene with the bomb maker.
I enjoyed the first half of the movie but felt it lost its focus and really fell apart after the business in the casino ended.

Few things that irked me.

1) Richard Branson's little cameo. Really took me out of the movie. Smarmy bugger. ABBA try outs were 30 years ago. Get a haricut!

2) Bond drives a Ford. Ugh.

3) This new Bond lacks sophistication and comes across like a chav Bond.

4) Where were the silhouettes of the nekkid chicks in the opening credits? How can you have a Bond film without nekkid chick silhouttes?

I watched the new Bond last week.

It was a nice action-movie, a good martial-arts-movie, too, some nice car-chases and great effects and stunts - period.

A real pitty, all the wit and charme of former Bond-movies is completely gone. The funny comments Bond-fans are so used to, have been reduced to some forced additions, which are equally forced funny, if at all. Some scene are completely out of the element. There are also some major errors in the movie, that really cannot be overlooked. (e.g. an agent even without a licence to kill enters the bureau of the MI6-Chief without any problem and even finds out her password - sure... - and he may even leave with that - of course - and though she finds out, the passwords are not changed - sure...)
The scene with the women is simply absurd. She commits suicide, because her husband was taken hostage and she doesn't know if he's dead or alive. Ehmn...?
I could even live with a JamesBond that has no more Gimmiks to use, but then please stick to it. The only scene where Bond relies on his Gimmiks is so completely and utterly misfitting and absurd. (He's poisoned and dies, an Antidote and the poison more or less kills him, the Defi in the car revives him and he's back okay. I though this kind of wonder-defibrilator was only implemented in Battlefield2)

Sure, this movie was ment to show Bonds darker side. Honestly, though, Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator1 looks more intelligent, a lot more funny and believably dark.

Besides that, this Bond looks like a school-boy when wearing a suit and a smoking is absolutely not his style, sorry. Infact, this Bond has no style at all. He's more like a dumb hooligan and he also fights and behaves this way. Not even a trace of the British Top-Agent, anywhere.

My overall opinion is, that this new Bond suits all those who like to watch current action-movies without sense and brains. Steven Segal has roles with more wit and a lot more fitting storybooks, though, so I'd rather recommend his movies.


Absolutely not impressed, here.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

IMHO this bond movie is one of the best and definitely better than any of the previous Pierce Brosnan ones.

The opening scene in black&white where Bond lurks in the shadows to await the traitorous agent was simply stunning. The parcours scene with the bomb maker was also very well worked out. I really like the new and dark touch of this movie. Sure, some might miss the "always ready for a joke, ***** hunting, in love with himself" Bond that we are used to, but I personally dont.

Contrary to Cpt. Loneranger I do not think AT ALL that this new Bond is dumb and proletarian. He simply is a dark, cold, calculating character in this episode which all previous Bonds never were and this IMO fits the profile of a trained killer (which he simply is) much better. The shower scene also adds a nice touch because we also get to see his softer side and distances him from a cold-blooded killer. He is a much more sophisticated character than any other Bond.

Whats so wrong about it? He took an antidote but failed to defibrillate himself, she came to the rescue and revived him. Defibrillators are quite efficient these days and as he didnt have any other health issue apart from the poison which he neutralized...

At that time he was already a double-zero agent (she says: "I knew your promotion was too early") and he probably had his way of finding out about the password.

Correct about the defis. Funny though, that these things do not eliminate the Digitales.
Sure, the antidote MAY help (though you need about 1/2liters of antidote-solution to achieve this - but okay, it's just a movie)
But in the end, there's 2 possible solutions: Either the antidote works - then no defi-action would be neccessary, or the antidote doesn't work in time. Then, with the stopped heart, the antidote isn't further mixed with the blood and the concentration stays the same. So, if his heart starts beating again, the same concentration that killed him, is still there.

So you say any 00-agent can enter the chiefs bureau without any notice? Wow - where do you work?


I must admit though, the shower-scene is really a believeable moment in the new Bonds life - but this was nothing new, really. It's not like there were no emotional Bonds before - just none that were that brutal.
Considering this close moment and the "weak" James, this absolutely blows in your face, when both confess their love. In this much more emotional scene, he has the emotionality of a toaster and talks like windows speech-simulator.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

But see, that's why James Bond was so successful in the first place! He was suave mostly, and always had good jokes on hand. James Bond and Roger Moore were the only true Bonds, who were able to really pull it off with their characters, because they themselves have said charm and suave. Pierce Brosnan was and is a twit and during the time he was Bond absolutely killed the series for me.

I'm more interested in a funny, light-hearted spy film with chicks, honest fight scenes (i.e. non-hollywood) and a good script then yet ANOTHER dark, serious kill everybody type film, there already being a deluge of that same type of film.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

You can have no idea just how hostile aircraft can be until they come to your area...
Aircraft which strafe or bomb your positions should be regarded with suspicion, if not deep mistrust. Aircraft which bomb and strafe your position and wear a red circle should certainly be regarded with deep mistrust. In fact, the deeper the better. A six-foot-deep slit trench is an ideal place from which to mistrust them...

I liked the movie.

Right thing was bringing a part of his personality,a "mysterious, dark, government-sanctioned homicide enthusiast" like Rammathorn said.I always expected more violence from Bond and I got it.

Bad thing was the climate.Complete absence of climate all previous movies provided.I guess it has something to do with him being blond.I don`t really link blond hair with the British,so the movie lacks a British accent I think.

IMO the firs action with the black bomb dude seems very cheesy to me.Represents all that is characteristic for nowaday`s cinema - too much action with jumping round,blowing things up and stuff.

And again,the movie showed something new.I liked how Bond got beaten up in "Casino Royale".Tough guy but not inhuman,can`t foresee many things,makes mistakes.Pierce Brosnan`s Bond was untouchable it seems.

And when he totally demolishes that Aston Martin...I love it.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

IMHO changing a figure with the main aspects of wit, style and charm that even (or especially) is present when overcoming enemies, to the new Bond style, is like taking all away, that made Bond so famous and special.

No wonder movies like "FlyingBoys" and "RedBaron" are merely action-movies with a different setting and showing heroes as anti-heroes, if this is the kind of theme, people want to watch nowadays. Pitty. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Funnily enough the Bond film I enjoyed most was a Pierce Brosnan film :-

The World is not Enough with Robert Carlylse as the bad guy who could not feel pain.

Come to think of it, its probably because of RObert Carlysle as I rate a lot of stuff he is in, he was amazing in Trainspotting as the 'Lager lout','Put everyone off drinking for ever', 'Heroin cant make me as bad as him at least' guy.

Daniel Craig was great in Layer Cake and that WW1 movie 'The Trench' with no action but a really good story of the young lads in WW1.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

the latest Bond movie was a good movie. but it wasn't Bond. I grew up with Bond through the 60's and 70's he was about his nifty little gadgets, how he got himself into scrapes and how the bad guys always thought they would try to kill him in some cutsie inventive way instead of straight out a bullet to the head. and his snide little comments that he always made. the only thin in this move that he says that the least bit snide is when the tell that guy how he going to tell everyone how he scratches his ball for him. and by the way Timothy Dalton was the worse Bond hands down, followed by George Lazenby, prbebly why Lazenby only lasted 1 movie,

I agree. Partly.
In the books Bond is callous, cold, calculating, selfish and ruthless. But I think Craig nailed it pretty good.
And damn! It's good to see Bond get tortured! He gets tortured in the books all the time but you never see it in the films.

None of the screen Bonds match the Bond of Fleming's novels, but Connery's brutal good looks were the best visual match. I read all the novels in the 8th Grade in '66. DeSade would have approved of the lashings of exotic torture, which I will refrain from describing since this site is not X-rated. The Bond of the novels was a borderline wreck---wounded frequently, bothered by old injuries, drank too much, smoked too much. He was an ex-WWII Royal Marine enlisted man with a veneer of sophistication he learned from others. He was not the metal machine of the Connery films. Brosnan was the next best---all the others had the demeanor of pimps with their inane repartee, lounge lizard good looks, and juvenile attempts at worldliness.

Having never seen Dalton in a Bond film, I concede Chuck_Older may have found the true Bond. The ones I've seen were not.

Just in case you guys didnt know, this is supposed to be the very first outing of James Bond, so he has to develop his personality and such.

This is why the character is a bit different to what we are used too.

At least it was something different and not following hte same old formula. No doubt we will see more of 'classic Bond' as we see more films. (If they develop his character further in the early days)<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Have to agree with you Chuck, I thought his second film was a bit of a stinker but The Living Daylights is one of my favourite Bond films. Dalton played it very well, aided by a brilliant opening half hour, some cracking setpieces, a single stunning Bond gal rather than a succession of random strumpets and the best looking Aston Martin since the DB5 (at that time).

Was a very welcome departure from Grandad in A View to a Kill.

Coincidentally, IMHO Brosnan's best was also his first, Goldeneye. It

The new bond wasnt bad, i think daniel craig makes a great bond...the plot just let it down. Some of the lines were great haha eg "The ***** is dead", "That break nearly killed me", "Your not my type....your single", and "Would you like your martini shaken or stirred?....Does it look like I give a damn"<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Minimum system would be probably like last year good system for IL-2 series. The simulation has gone from what was to be a study sim involving one aircraft to a real monster anthology of WWII aviation. The engine has been stretched to fit multi-engined bombers, aircraft that are linked (such as the Mistel and the TB-3/I-16 combinations), aircraft carriers, runway cratering, working searchlights, etc.

Based on the previews and hype, this is the only Bond film I've planned on seeing in the last 15 years. Dalton is seriously underrated, agree. Brosnan was a shopwindow dummy, looked good in a tux... and that's it.
Go, oldskool.

They???ve finally used an Italian woman in a recent Bond film! Monica Bellucci in the next film would be spectacular, and if they call me I could give them an entire list and perhaps go to Italy myself to do the research.

I haven't read the books, although I want to. I can agree with Chuck that Dalton is underrated. I also agree that Sean Connery is a tough act to follow.

I REALLY liked the new Bond film. Roger Moore and Pierce did nothing for me. However, I think Craig is an exellent actor. I am not saying he is better than Connery, but he comes close. The Poker game is what really got me. They did that very well. This film has the recipe for success ... fine women, fine liquor, Poker, fancy sport cars, intense action/explosion, torture ...

The one thing about Bond is he seems to have world appeal, it must have or they would have stopped making them years ago as there would be no profit in him............

when we got to the likes of Rocky 4 or Friday the 13th part 16 ( well it felt like it) people were fed up with them and pulling their hair out at the thought of another, but Bond just goes on and on........ I have grown up watching over 40 years Bond films and they are just as timeless now as they were then, Keep making em I say..........
