^ I agree with you, this is not the best bond, as touted by some. It's not as good as Casino Royale, and no where near as emotionally involving as it either... I was bummed out that Javier Bardem's villain wasn't as maniacal or as deep as I thought he was going to be(his one shot entrance and sexual advance towards Bond being highlights). I felt like too much was made of the many bond references(which weren't entirely over my head), the humour was excruciatingly dry, and the character of M being a central part of the plot a huge mistake. M dragged the film down, I did not care for her and
actually felt sadder watching the Aston get destroyed than when she died...
I didn't hate the movie, but man, was I disappointed with it. If you're going to go in a darker direction with your franchise, make it worthwhile and not just an excuse to have a shallow lead character... These last 3 films have been heavily inspired by the Bourne franchise, but they have never achieved the depth of that character...
It's still one of the best looking films of the year though, so that's something.
Just wanted to add, that adding people's breath digitally always looks terrible, for example Social Network.
I agree with you. Most people think I hated it because in my review I slam it hard. But honestly, I'm just really disappointed with it. The Bourne movies are definitely what this is trying to be, but since that's the case, just watch the Bourne movies again. In fact I think I will.

^I honestly wouldn't be vocal about it if it wasn't for the universal praise the film got.
Dude, Bourne Ultimatum... That's how you do action espionage, that's how you do bike chases and hand to hand, and most importantly that's how you do globetrotting. Fucking ride the train, don't just get shot off it.
my favourite part was when Q is like, 'only 6 people in the world can program that, and I invented it'. And he plugs the computer directly into the network.. lol. I only went to bcit, and even i saw that coming a mile away
He runs through like 10+ suits through filming. Those are ~5k Tom Ford tailored suits. Not as bad as the 5-6 Aston DBS' they've wrecked though.
More than 10..
There were 85 versions of James Bond's Tom Ford suit tailor-made for the opening chase sequence. Thirty were made for actor Daniel Craig and thirty for his double and stunt-double. Each version of the suit was made specifically for a particular scene of the opening sequence. For example, when Craig was riding the motor-bike, a suit with longer sleeves was worn so that it wouldn't raise up over his forearms. Costume Designer Jany Temime has said: "Each suit had three fittings, like a real traditional Saville Row suit. It was very high class tailoring. The first suit was mohair, very lightweight, woolen silk. The tuxedo is woolen silk. They were all [made of] beautiful fabric. He [would be] jumping and fighting, and then he would stand up, and the suit would be perfect." Moreover, Craig's tie had to be weighted for the motorbike section of the chase. The weight kept the tie from flying around when he rode at high speeds.
Just saw it in the cheap theater. Overall, really liked it. Some nice touches, some slick nods to "classic" Bond films, like the "old" theme music when they get in the DB5...
And I think those references were really well-used given that...
We finally get a proper Moneypenny, complete with the incessant but ultimately unrequited flirting.
We get a new M that frankly is a lot more like the "classic" M (not to take away anything from Judi Dench, she was the ass-kickin'-est M ever).
The new HQ is a lot more like the "classic" HQ now.
Oh yeah, and we're back to having a REALLY NASTY villain in classic fashion!
Will be REALLY interesting to see what they do with it from here.
The one thing I didn't like was that a lot of it seemed very wooden at the start... almost more like a director who didn't quite know what he wanted to do. Kinda odd, that. It picked up as we went along, though.
Oh, and the opening chase scene REALLY didn't measure up to some of the past ones. I mean, it'll be hard for anything, EVER, to top Casino Royale, but still...
