James Bond is dead, for a short while. Then he’s back in action and a member of MI6. Tasked with taking down another former agent, must pull out all the stops to make sure he comes out on top.
The action and acting are great and it felt sort of like the older Bonds while retaining the grittiness started by Casino Royale. Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem are great together. Ralph Fiennes is also worth mentioning. The story is great, the most interesting since GoldenEye. I think Daniel Craig just helped cement himself as the face of the franchise. That being said, I still have other favorites.
The ending, last 30 minutes or so, are especially awesome and might make this the best Bond movie ever. I’ll have to let my feelings and opinions sink in over the next few weeks before making that bold claim though.
There was a baby crying at the theater. That was seriously my only issue.
