1.0 out of 5 stars
Just another mindless thug..., 1 April 2007
I was very disappointed. Normal action movie, bad James Bond movie.
If this was not a 'James Bond' movie I might have given it 2 stars
They basically ripped out everything that makes him Bond!
He is not meant to be like James Bourne or Vin diesel etc.
He is NOT a some low class thug.
He is meant to be suave, refined, charming and witty.
He know I think around 16 languages, was a Navy Commander ,went to Eton and is well educated.
Bond is (or was) the original ladies man, the finest looking spy on the planet.
The James Bond in this movie (no offense to Daniel Craig) was NONE of the above.
By the way where were Q and Moneypenny?
When I go into a James Bond movie, I wait excitedly to see what crazy gadgets they will have. NONE!
Also why was Judi Dench M?
In the older movies M was a man when he was starting out. Someone's got their time lines messed up.
Also the villains were not entertaining in the least.
Jaws there was a villain that was good!
Where are the crazy 'I want to take the world villains'?
James Bond is meant to be exciting even a bit campy.
Not overly gritty.
If I want to watch a film like this I'll watch Bourne Identity etc
But I wanted a Bond film and I got another random action movie with no heart or class.
I'm only 18 so don't say I'm an old grumpy person.
I won't watch the next 'bond' movie
