In my opinion, it is how Bond was always supposed to be if you read the Ian Fleming novels. After many discussions with friends I think there will always be a difference of opinion. Many people expect the Bond movies to be like the Roger Moore incarnation, not early Connery and Dalton, while Craig is probably even grittier than even those two. I am actually a fan of this style. Ironically this movie is truer to the Fleming spirit than most other movies and it was not even based on one of his books. I agree however that this makes it stand out less from a Bourne movie or similar because of that. This movie carries on from Casino Royale, so re-watch that movie before seeing this if you can. I think the plot is complex, however no overly so, superbly acted and the action is excellent and quite believable. An excellent movie from start to finish, however don't expect gadgets, quips and humour.
