Of all the opening sequences for Bond this has got to be the worse of the lot. When Bond is shot off the train and falls off the bridge into the water, his neck would have snapped the way that he landed so straight away Bond would have been dead straight away.
The film once more is a Bourne style gritty film, with a reasonable Matt Damon (Jason Bourne) imitation.
As for Bond, Daniel Craig will never be a true Bond, being a blonde blue eyed boy, although the movies are made from the same studio, but Bond is dead and a new film genre has been created.
The film itself is a reasonably enjoyable watch, if you want to step outside all the Bond's that you grew up with, gone is the magic that made Bond truly British and in it's place is an American style impostor.
I would sway from a 3.5 to a 4 star for this movie, and totally demote it because of the opening sequence and that Bond is no longer dark haired and brown eyes. Still RIP true Bond.
