Almost sidelined in favour of lesser sequel ''Skyfall'', this risky reboot from 2006 is a sheer adrenaline rush of pumping action, combined with a heart and plenty of character - and for me, one of the better James Bond movies in the franchise.

Newly ''00'd'' James Bond (Daniel Craig) is a detached force of aggressive nature with no remorse for the people he kills or the women he beds. Now, armed with a licence to kill, Bond's first mission finds him tasked with entering a high risk poker game against the villainous Le Chiffre (played brilliantly by Mads Mikkelsen) in an effort to expose his actions to the terrorist groups that he has stolen his buy-in money from. Complications arise when Bond falls for fellow Treasury agent Vesper Lynd (Eva Green) leading to an explosive finale as Bond has to choose who he can and can't trust.

The movie is a great piece of popular entertainment. Going back to the roots of not only the literary character but also the film series, the stunts are breathtaking (a standout chase sequence in Madagascar still amazes) and really place you in the action. Director Martin Campbell - who previously helmed Pierce Brosnan's wonderful debut 'Goldeneye' returns with a similarly lush and beautiful looking movie, yet doesn't forget to take things down and dirty whenever the script requires. The cast too are excellent. I'm not a fan of actor Daniel Craig (or his subsequent appearances as 007) but here he delivers a fully rounded performance delivering an empty shell of a man and you feel for his plight as the film progresses. All in all, a solid gem of a film that ranks alongside 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Goldfinger and From Russia With Love' as a standout in the series.

This blu-ray special edition sports a crisp transfer with strong audio. The extras are more filler than thriller, but as the package is extremely attractive its a minor quibble. Highly recommended.

Daniel Craig, does a great job in his first outing as 007, bringing an air of authority and understated menace to the role.
The apparently emotionless, teak-hard bond, pursues banker to the underworld, "Le Chiffre", along the way succumbing to the beguiling treasury agent, vesper lynd played by Eva Green (and who wouldn't?)
It's a great mix of great locations, superb action sequences action, and the cooly sardonic. Craig is excellent with the justthe right amount of cool wit to go with the very definite steely grit. Recommended.

So disappointing! But perhaps that's just me. Too many long action scenes with not enough dialogue to keep the attention of the viewer. Thank goodness the two latest films are heap better.

It is what it is. Craig is not very convincing in the role

This is the best Bond film for a long time. Fabulous locations, fantastic chase scenes, awesome baddie, oh, and, er Mr Craig is perfectly passable as our spy!
Simply hasn't been matched by the two subsequent films. (The so-called "baddie" in Skyfall was about as bad as an ice cream cone)
