  Disappointed

| | See all Hensie's reviews (6)

Sorry, having read the favourable reviews, but I found the film extremely disappointing and the plot ludicrous. It started well but then sunk as the situations became totally implaudable. Some of the acting was also a little"wooden" and those who deserved it did actually 'die' on screen. Overall a waste of money (and I haven't met anyone who enjoyed it so it's not just me).

  Flemming himself would have been very proud.

For those of you who think The Spy Who Loved Me was the best bond book (not best bond film as the film bore no similarity to the book due to the official secrets act prohibiting the publishing of the story) this film definitely has the same atmosphere. Definitely the best Bond film ever, just not the best Bond.

The writers had the story nailed, but Dench and Craig put as much emotion in as two cardboard cut outs. I first saw Goldfinger back in the sixties when I was eight years old and now housebound I had no way to see this movie until now. I was like a dog with two tails when it arrived and I made myself wait until late evening to watch ths master piece
The Hype is so great that it kills it dead. The film is sign posted for the dumb Americans who have trouble reading joined up writing. M is the central figure and it shows how secret agents react differently towards her when the chips are down. Bond and M had a mother/Bad boy relationship that sinks in this film. It should have been the most powerful of the trio of Craig films but it just does not have the passion the commitment or the drive. The acting seems to run on auto pilot knowing a big pay cheque is waiting no matter what. Mendes directs long distance shots well, but when the big conversation takes place Bond to Villian it should have panned out like the best round the table chin wags that Tarrantino puts together. The script had it but the actors do not click. The soundtrack hints at old Bond sounds but then goes 180 degrees for maximum pump and jump. Some silly big mouth spilled the ending on Sky a few weeks back and killed this dead for me. I was hoping the film could get a chance to take off and fly but it does not. It lacks chemistry and passion and drive and seems low and gritty but then too lofty. Confusing and disapointing in equal measure and one I would not have bought had I known. The whole Bond Francise team need an overall. Everyone is too comfortable and safe and the money rolls in no matter what. If Bond is to be around for another 50 years then those at the top need to give way to fresh blood and new ideas. Fleming's Bond sneaks out now and again but only in the back story of Bond. So much good stuff and Ideas are burned up cheaply. Perhaps this should have been a two parter and allow time for the storyline to grow and for the characthers to get into the feel of the whole concept. This film is mid table Bond and could have been top of the league. Heads must roll.

This is it in a nutshell, better than Quantum but no where near as good as Casino Royale!

  Good addition to daniel craigs bond moments

| | See all LEEGEND's reviews (165)

This is a good bond movie but i wouldn't say the best at least not in my opinion, it is on par with casino royale. Some great action scenes and javier bardem made a decent villian at least better than the one in quantum of solace. If there is one bond movie out of the daniel craig collection this will probably be the one that stands out as one of his best, but it is not the best bond movie of all time maybe only in how much it grossed at the box office but it is not the best in story or spectacle.
