Good. Not as good as Casino Royale. not as good as From Russia With Love or On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. But much, much better than Die Another Day or anything with Roger Moore in it.
I was sitting this morning trying to recall the story line. I remembered the car chase. I remembered the boat chase. I remembered the foot chase. I remebered the aeroplane chase. (I don’t remember the alpaca chase – although as they were in South America there must have been one!) but the plot…? er, um.
I really liked the Le Carre-esque ending. I like Daniel Craig’s gritty interpretation of Bond and I love the locations (especially the ones I’ve been to) I am rather bemused that one can find quite so many fast boats in Haiti and I was really really disappointed in the demise of one of the characters from the last film.
Overall I’d say four stars out of five, but if Broccolli and Wilson keep to this new harder format – this particular Bond fan will keep coming back for more.
