It's a really really good performance and a nice new take on Bond but I have to say I am beginning to miss the James Bond we all know and love. I just hope that these two prequals, Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, are just that... Prequals. Maybe the next Bond film will include Moneypenny, Q, and a bit more tongue in cheek humour. All in all, I am sincerely dissapointed in this film. The film is like one big trailer in itself. The story is not fully explained, the action is too fast and incomprehensible with s shakey camera and it leaves you wanting to know what it's about. Being an avid Bond fan, it really hurts me to say it but this film is rubbish. The director needs sacking. Who would spend time and money creating a high octane car chase and just have 1 second close up shots of bits of the car, other than a bad director? It's a sad day for James Bond.
