The only downside is that by going back to a grittier Bond with all his brutal close quarter fighting, we lose a certain sense of spectacle. Even if the point was to get rid of the gadgets, we also lose the really big set pieces - essentially you get a lot of running around and a couple of explosions. Despite 'Die Another Day' being considered by many to be the worst Bond movie, at least it had a suitably big ending. Here it's all low key, and although it is very good, I have to knock off a star for the lack of invention in the action stakes.
