| Bond is back
Some people thought Daniel Craig was too much like Bourne and the Bond style film had been abandoned. If you were worried about that fear not - Bond is back.

The film has great stunts & thrills - you'll see this in the long opening sequence. Bond is not burdened with gadgets and still has lots of energy.

Ignore the plot credibility (not as far fetched as some plots like Moonraker) and usual level of general film fiction where it comes to computing.

All the characters are great, from the MI6 team members to the villain (Silva) who acts like a traditional Bond villain. It is very easy to provide details and reveal the plot - the way the trailer was edited means it has not given too much away.

This film will provide thrills & you will laugh more than you did with Craig's last two films.

Classic Bond is back and it was a joy to see it, if you are a Bond enthusiast there are lots of treats in store.

James Bond: Ronson's down. He needs a medical evac.
M: Where is it? Is it there?
James Bond: Hard drives gone.
M: You sure?
James Bond: It's gone. Give me a minute.
M: They must have it! Get after them!
James Bond: I'm stabilizing Ronson.
M: We don't have the time!
James Bond: I have to stop the bleeding!
M: Leave him!


When Bond leaves the Istanbul hotel, there is an old guy visible to left side of the door walking on the sidewalk. Shot cuts and there's suddenly no sign of that old guy.

Crazy Credits

Bond's traditional shot towards the camera, seen through the barrel of a gun, is placed at the end of this, film rather than the beginning. After the blood stops dripping, the James Bond 50th Anniversary logo appears with the words "James Bond will return," below it.

Alternate Versions

In the European theatrical release, BBC journalist Huw Edwards presents a news report about the attack on MI6's HQ that prompts Bond to come back from the dead. In the North American release, CNN journalist Wolf Blitzer presents it instead.
