James Bond is at it again. The opening sequence to this movie is quite simply the best start to a movie I’ve ever seen. The movie is not as big as the advertising made it out to be but it is well done. There are obvious plot problems but I am more than willing to check my brain out at the door and enjoy this movie for what it is, a great ride. Daniel Craig is proving to be one of the best Bonds his stripped down (no gadget), hard nosed, raw Bond has been a great move for the franchise. I believe he has signed on to do two more movies and I can only hope they are as good as this one.
