I have been watching Bond all my life, and I'm as enthralled now as I was when I watched my first film....Dr No. Having watched the previous two Bonds with Daniel Craig I have to say I was not impressed. This film is much better. However, personally I do not think as some others do that this is the best bond ever. I would much rather watch the old Bonds, Diamonds Are Forever, Live and Let Die and the such. Those were quality films!
Several bonds back the producers went through a phase of using CGI in the Bond movies and they were truly awful. I'm delighted to say that there is no such CGI in this film. There is all the usual elements of a Bond film, exotic locations, beautiful women, action, a "baddie" and the like. I have to say the opening sequence is as good as it gets. What is particularly pleasing is that there is an actual story with this Bond. I personally found the previous two films sadly lacking in what I would call a half decent story. The characters more so the "baddie" have real depth and character and you find yourself immersing in to the film.
Overall, this is an excellent film and I would strongly recommend it. I have not given the film 5* as I do not think all the hype around this been the best Bond ever is simply not true. I particularly liked the DVD arrived in a steelbook case at no extra cost. As with all DVDs these days, there are extras on there, commentary and the like. In terms of quality and viewing experience, blu ray is superb! Picture quality is second to none.
