I was not a fan of Daniel Craig going into this movie, but 20 mins into it he had won me over easily.
This movie starts with one of the best "On Foot" chase scenes ever shot.
Craig is more of a killer than a lover and is believable with it too.
This 2 hour 22 min long movie wasn't hard to follow, and was filled with great lines and tense scenes that had you holding your breath. Some of the locations that the movie was shot in were jaw-dropping in their beauty. Best Action Movie in years. Can't really think of anything wrong with the movie or anything that I would change. 5 out of 5

My 7-year old is begging me to take him to see it. Is it too violent for that age?

4/5. It was like the movie itself was alive and was actively trying not to end. It was very good, though. And Daniel Craig is my favorite Bond.

Daniel Craig take a seat next to Mr. Connery you deserve it. Absolutely amazing. Craig is just the bond Flemming's had in mind when he wrote his books. This is definetely one of my favorite bond movies ever. After the Connery era we finally have a real bond who will last step aside Pierce.

Am I the only person that wasn't that impressed? I mean, it was a good action movie but it just didn't feel like Bond. The bad guy was lame beyond belief. He was more scared of the other bad guys than Bond. No gadgets? Oh and did it really need to be that long? About 30 minutes of the movie could have been cut out.

It's not that it was bad, it just didn't feel like a James Bond movie to me. It took itself to serious and tried to hard to be an action flick instead of a Bond movie. Bond is a film genre all it's own. There's enough generic action movies out there... I want Bond films to be Bond films with villians in jump suits with cats, cars that turn to submarines and women with silly sexually explicit names.

It was a little too long but I liked it a lot.

You have to remember that it didn't feel like Bond because, in this movie, he wasn't really Bond as we know him, at least until the end.

His characterization was probably the closest to Fleming's Bond...even closer than "early Connery" or Dalton.

I actually believed that he could beat someone up.
The other Bond's can just pick up Women and use gadgets.

I don't get why so many people hated Craig before the movie was even made? Who cares if he's blonde, and a dirty blonde at that? Shows that you whould wait and see.
