Excellent. Definitely the best bond movie.
Not the best Bond ever ... that title still belongs to Goldfinger. But definitely in the top 5.
This is a prequel to the other James Bond movies and shows how he got his 00 prefix and his first Aston Martin. It's got all the classic Bond ingredients but still manages to overturn some of the cliches. For example in one scene James Bond doesn't care whether his martini is stirred or shaken; and the female lead is smart and sassy and doesn't fall for Bond's male machismo. My only criticism is the over-use of mobile phones to assist the plot, however, it's worth watching just for the opening chase sequence. This is easily one of the best Bond movies.
Found it to be boring. The original Bond movies were the best.
The game of poker seemed to drag on forever!
I love action, sexy woman and car chases!
However, the action was little and far between - even though the car crash was the best i have seen WOW... that stuntman needs a bonus :)
The tittliation was less than inother 007 movies (probably bec of today's 'correctness')
I sat through a lonnnng poker game with a fight and a poisoning to break it up...
but the plots and twists were good so I think all up it was a very good - albeit predictable - james bond movie
Another Bond classic. Even though it is a remake, Daniel Craig makes this movie his own.
typical james bond lots of action
Sexist rubbish. God, I hate James Bond
My son watched this movie and he enjoyed it, I like the old 007 movies more but this movie is good
In my opinion the best Bond Film made.
Another terrific Bond movie to add to the collection. Daniel Craig was excellent and will enjoy watching the next Bond movie as well.
Loved it! Wasn't sure how I would like the "Blonde Bond",but I thought it was amazing. Nice to see how Bond was formed into the person we see in later films. Scenery was stunning,supporting cast amazing,and the story line intriguing from start to finish. Can't wait to see Quantum Of Solace now!
Don't go in expecting sophisticated plotting or commonsense to play much of a role. That said, the action sequences are brilliant, Daniel Craig gives Connery himself a run for his money, and Judi Dench is hilarious, if sadly underused. Added fun comes from trying to make sense of the plot afterwards.
I must admit that this is the first James Bond movie I have ever seen. I was actually a pretty awesome movie with tons of action and it has converted me into a fan. I gave four stars because I didn't really understand the black and white bit at the beginning but perhaps it was a lead on from the previous film or something? Otherwise I'd give it FIVE STARS!!!
It was ok but it didt have very much action like other bond movies.
The action is more "in your face" than all the other Bonds. But without doubt Craig portrays a more believable Bond. At least you believe he is a secret agent capable of cold, calculated murder rather than an oversexed party boy with cool gadgets.
What a disappointment! The book's much better. I couldn't get through it. the story disappeared under all the senseless violence.
I grew up with James Bond and to be honest I'd gone off the genre...I've not seen Pierce Brosnan etc...I quite like Daniel Craig as an edgier, more reckless Bond. A great action film that has re-enthused me and I will now see Quantam of Solace
Typical Bond film, very well made. A few discrepensies with chronology in relation to this being his 'first' real mission as 007, but it's based years after the others. Also a little bit long, but otherwise very good.
Crap and more crap, the opening scenes of running jump after jump from atop construction equiptment made me nauseous, the storyline was at best weak and underwritten. It may have gone into the background of bond but i dont think it did i justice, daniel craig was a poor choice to play bond, may have been more convincing had they dyed his hair because the blondness and the white eyebrows frankly put me off, whilst i love a good action sequence these ones were very poorly done and so obviously stunted it was a joke, stunts are meant to be seamless leaving us believe them.
The only good part was when bond cracked the joke about le chiferre being able to say he has touched his balls!
If your a die hard bond fan give it a go but i personally was disappointed.
Really enjoyable with good storyline and awesome effects.
The best Bond film in about a million years, since the Scottish bloke. The action never stops, the special FX are awesome, but there is a plot too. Harks back to better days, with modern technology.
It's a 007 with no high-tech gadgets to play. Boring casino seen goes for hours.
Just checking. As expected, mindless, with stunts taking over from the story.
Don't bother...it is not worth it.
Breathtaking! Heart throbbing! & a warmth of love & sacrifice from a to-be- wife which gave a closure of undying vow & an unretrieve tragic.
The movie is ok. For the boys movie. Did have the time to watch it but just ask hubby if he likes it and said he did.
I guess this just isn't my sort of film.
This is a great bond film. They were getting a bit fluffy in the end but this one takes it right back to the smooth hard hitting bond that we love. Would recommend to everyone.
Excellent movie, would highly recommend. Gets back to the basic James Bond rather than the focus being on lots of fancy gadgets.
Plot hangs together very well. Craig plays a brooding and convincing Bond
Easily the most exciting Bond movie. Craig plays a much grittier role than is traditionally associated with the Bond franchise. In my opinion, though, the movie is leagues behind the Bourne series in terms of intelligence and suspense. As a prequel it does, however, provide a good explanation for Bond's womanising ways in 'future' movies from the series.
Wow I loved it!
007 is quite energetic in this one!
This would have to rate as the best Bond I've ever seen. A return to credibility after the excesses of the latter films. Daniel Craig was superbly understated, although his inscrutable spy-face occasionally reminded me of Robocop's perfect pout. The opening chase sequence is an absolute classic and left us all gasping.
Surprising to many friends, but this was the first Bond movie I have ever seen and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Will be watching the old ones now as well. Excellent film!
The best James Bond of them all. A very exciting addition to the franchise
Daniel Craig has breathed new life in to a franchise that sorely needed it.
A whole new era for the Bond franchise? There can be little doubt that Daniel Craig’s Bond comes closest to fulfilling the wishes of those who have always clamoured for a Bond more true to Fleming’s literary character. Craig is entirely convincing as a hard-as-nails operator, quite capable, willing and apparently licensed, to kill at a moment’s notice. The movie is stripped down – gone are most of the gadgets and catchphrases, except for one which is very amusingly parodied. The fast cars and the gorgeous girls are thankfully still there. Although at one point Bond does drive a Ford, which must surely be a first and may be taking realism a bit too far.
I enjoyed the movie and I think this is a necessary and exciting new direction for Bond. Necessary because the last Brosnan instalments had taken the gadgetry and stunts too far into the realm of fantasy. The invisible car and those ludicrous scenes where he “surfs” on a chip of an ice-berg spring to mind. Mind you, I can’t help wondering whether I might miss some of the polish and style of the old Bond.
Really liked this one, lots of action, well worth the watch.. have had a few undecisive thoughts from friends on the main actor, but he did a great job...george clooney should have also taken on the bond role, would have been even better
He just doesn't work as a Bond. The person has to display sophistication and he doesn't.
i found this movie non stop action from the first scene to the very end i was on the edge of my seat the entire movie a real fast action movie great for the person that likes action ,i give it 5 stars
Good action - just like a James Bond movie - new James Bond 'very nice'
It's good to see a Bond that isn't infallable. Although why this guy is sexy, I can't tell... must be a woman thing. Anti-Brosnon to the core, which suits me fine.
Was not as enjoyable as other Bond movies because it was very different from them. The violence was very graphic for a Bond movie and the action sequences were erratic. It was more like watching Jason Bourne. Disappointing.
Horrible. Painful and almost unwatchable in places, boring in others.
The stunts are something else and Craig makes a great Bond, somewhere between Connery and Moore.
scratched dvd - unwatchable but have seen it before - It is classic "over the top" James Bond. Craig makes a wonderful 007(what was all the fuss about his blond hair?!!!) and Dame Judi Dench was classic as "M"
hi. this bond dosent do it for me. but give a chance. he might grow on me. the movie itself is tad too long. thanks.
A sensitive James Bond??/ he tries but just keeps on killin'...the plot is tenuous but Daniel Craig's blue eyes melt the females...great action even if little relation to the plot..see it if you are a Bond fan (who isn't?).
Brilliant action-packed set pieces throughout. Daniel Craig is awesome as 007.
Best post-80s James Bond film (haven't seen the eariler ones).
Just like Batman Begins, the series is reborn and better than ever.
I am not a big fan of the James Bond movies, but I must admit I truly enjoyed this one. For once there were no excessive sex scenes and even the action scenes were not over played. It was a good blend of everything.
Typical 007 movie. Kept the interest and enjoyed the overall story. Good sound effects.
It didn't "grab" me like the previous Bond movies.
My DVD player was apparently incompatable with this DVD but when I finally got to see this I was blown away. Not only is it a great story but all the characters are so well drawn - and for once 007 becomes fully emotionally committed to his woman, with devastating consequences. Every scene is played for its full imapct and the use of digital technology for once does not lead to a sense of unreality. Go for it!
The worst James Bond movie I have ever seen. If that's the best they can do - stop making them.
the movie was good ,i enjoy it
Very fast action, a little unbelieveable at times.
DVD stopped at the first big poker game, so I had to forward it and missed some.
The first Bond movie played by Daniel Craig, and he simply gave a new touch on Bond's movie.. Really nice movie, definitely the ultimate "time-killer"...
Who's that guy playing Bond - what happened to Sean Connery?
It was great, Daniel Craig was a wonderful James Bond and had me on the edge of my seat. Fantastic
Great Bond movie and Daniel Craig is just perfect in the role. One of the best Bond films in a very long time
James Bond with a perpetual pout! Not sure I like the new Bond, but like all other 007 movies, very entertaining.
this is the best bond movie ever
it is a MUST watch!!!!
I thought I would be bored, but omg the second fight seen or should I say "the chase"was most impressive, thats the way I moove in my dreams.
There are some classic one liners. Seeing this movie has inspired me to see the original.
I didn't think much of the choice of Daniel Craig as Bond until I saw this. He was awesome, the stunts were fantastic, particularly the chase at the start. I was very impressed.
Good action flick and a Bond with screen credibility.
Would you believe that this was my first bond movie? and it won't be my last. Daniel Craig is tooooo hot...I really enjoyed all the actors and the plot. Great film
Best Bond flick in yonks, best lead actor possibly ever (maybe even better than Sean). It flags near the end but it has a lot going for it.
Fantastic movie - can watch it again and again! Will prob put it back on my list to get it again.
Brilliant.....best Bond movie EVER!!!!
A good show but no-one will ever match Sean Connery as 007.
A terrific addition to the Bond franchise.
Not as good as the other bond movies, needs more action
this is a cracker. can't wait to see the next one. totally awesome
While the opening sequence was a kind of break from tradition in that it was more low tech than the usual bond opening the movie went down hill from there in terms of maintaining interest. The story was uneventful and just plain boring, to the point I didn't care if Daniel Craig is a better bond than Brosnon: there wasn't enough of a plot to keep me watching until the end.
OK Bond movie and a cut above the Pierce Broslon overly slick efforts. Top notch, over the top, action sequences as you would expect and a wonderful scene on board a train when Bond and a female treasurery officer analyze each other, insightful & funny, top stuff.
Daniel Craig is the nearest to Sean Connery in the lead role.
Not as good asmthe original,but lots of fun.
Great action - lots of twists to the story - a couple of flat spots in the middle, but all-in-all a good watch
this would have to be the best Bond movie ever.Definately not one to miss
The new 007 is different & certainly worth a look. Production values are as usual excellent.
This was an excellent and enthralling movie. I watched it twice as did my Dad. It was filled with all the "James Bond" action and savvy. I would recommend this movie to all action lovers.
One of the better Bond films
I enjoyed the new Bond movie very much. Daniel Craig is excellent as James Bond. A good choice and hopefully he will star in a few more Bond movies. I've seen them all since the first film Dr No, and this one stands up to the past very well. A little to long for me but well worth hiring to watch. Clive
There's some fantastic stunt work in this movie. The first 15 minutes alone are worth getting this movie. I wasn't sure about the new James Bond but I think he managed to pull it off.
This movie was passable and I was very disappointed with Daniel Craig. I've liked some of his earlier work but I thought he played Bond too seriously. If Rocky can climb back in the ring in his 60's surely Sean Connery could make a comeback as James Bond?
Definitely up to the James Bond standard.
Great Bond movie - certainly the best of the later bunch! I enjoyed Daniel Craig as Bond, and the main Villain. Action all the way, and more believeable than some of the over-the-top previous movies. Also truer to Ian Fleming's novel. Worth watching!
A good movie not a true bond movie as far as im concerned no Q and no gadgets. Its supposed to be a prequel but has references to current events. Good to see the DB5 makes an apperence.
Still a really good movie plenty of action and completely unrealistic like all bond films. Well worth watching
Not bad. With more practice he will be a more credible
So different to the normal James Bond movies. For the better I would say. Daniel Craig has made him quite raw, not so Hollywoodish. Best James Bond since Sean Connery.
So good I have ordered a copy of it from you
Great action-packed movie
Best Bond film since Connery and an equal Bond. Great spook flick and a welcome return to form.
Full of unbelievable rubbish but the rubbish is just SO GOOD! Great movie!
messy plot, hard to keep track of whats happening, jumping all over the world, but some nice location scenery.
I'm not really a James Bond fan but this one i liked it had a good twist to it
Daniel Craig as the new James Bond is a great casting in this new 007 adventure. Visually a treat and although I found the plot a bit difficult to grasp it didnt detract from an enjoyable few hours viewing. Not relying on the *gadgetry* of past films this focuses more on the human side of Bond's character and a relationship with the beautiful Eva Green cast as the love interest. It has a some great action sequences, scenic locations and highly recommended.
Great movie, action packed. Good Bond movie.
Thoroughly enjoed the movie, especially as I don;t really like James Bond Movies. This film was more realistic with plenty of action
Great movie with fantastic stunts and babes. The twists kept coming and you didn't want the movie to end. One of the best Bond movies I've seen.
It's a fact, of course, that Sean Connery is THE James Bond. As much as I enjoyed Dalton and Brosnan in the role, I suspect that Daniel Craig is going to make the role his own. Great fun and great entertainment.
not the usual james bond movie too violent
What a body and those blue eyes!!
Enjoyable movie some of the time but one tends to compare this Bond with previous 007's. This one is more human but nowhere near as exciting as most of the previous movies. Silly plot but great rattan chair stuff.
Overrated but still a good flick. It is definitely not in the same mould as all other Bond movies, he's just not as slick. This Bond is too aggressive, Daniel Craig doesn't do it for me.
Really enjoy it lots of action and great entertainment the way I like it
I am a fan of James Bond, but feel this was a let down. Couldn't get into the story line; don't think Ian Fleming would have liked it either.
love bond movies and this one was no exception
Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. The best James Bond movie that l have seen
We are not really James Bond fans but heard it was different from the others so tried it. It was ok. A little bit long, lost us in the middle but all made sense in the end. But wouldn't recommend it as a must see!
How James Bond should be.
Excellent. A completely different James Bond Movie with James actually getting on with his actual work with less sexual exploits as per previous James Bond movies.
Hope any new movies follow this pattern. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Fantastic - really action packed lots of plot twists to keep you guessing to the end and not corny like the usual 007 movie
Not as good as other Bond movies
I liked the rough edges to this Bond, no British pomp, and at least was physically built like you'd expect a secret agent to be.
Not impressed by the new guy
A bit violent at times but kept me interested
Bond has transitioned to the 21st Century. Excellent!
Not the ususal Bond. Great
A little too heavy on the abusive violence side!
great "oo" action and one liners
The worst James Bond I have ever seen .I stopped watching after 55 minutes.There was no story just unlinked action. Never thought that the day would come that I would turn off a james Bond Film.
Great story, great Bond.
Getting back to building the character.
Quite large holes in the story for credability and one huge continuity glitch that is
unmissable. A bit of a disappointment given the hype of 'the new direction'
Once it got warmed up really good film; very good thx
I enjoyed it immensley.was a different sort of Bond movie.
attractive scenery; this 007 is sexy; the movie has action and some interesting "gadgets" but lacks the "fun' and comedy elements that make the 007 movies worth viewing.
One of the roughest 007 characters/movies. Aussie Hugh Jackman would have made a far better Bond.
Fast and furious but somewhat confusing at times. Daniel Craig's Bond is a worthy successor to the first three Sean Connery Bonds - the other actors in between don't really rate - look forward to number 22.
Not the best Bond movie I have seen, kept waiting for something special to happen.
I engjoyed this Bond film and thought the new
Bond did an excellent job
Maybe I went in to this one with my expectations a little high after all the good press, but ultimately I was disappointed. This is a good action flick but it's not a James Bond film. Where are the inventions and the wisecracks? And Bond falls in love? No way!
There was too much pointless violence, and not much of a plot. 007's appeal lies in the charming personality of the main character and the gadget display. This movie seemed to lack both. Very disappointing.
An unusual number of twists and turns for a Bond movie but no world-threatening intrigue or special gadgets that you find in earlier films. A bit slow in parts but overall very enjoyable to watch. Daniel Craig does a fine job as 007.
A very different James Bond that previously portrayed and much more true to the Flemming novels. Very watchable and quite dark and lovely eye candy for the ladies.
very boisterous lots of action
Really Good better than I Expected!!!!!!
If you are a James Bond Fan you will love this.
Finally! A Bond film Ian Fleming would have liked.
excellent action packed movie could watch again
This guy just doesn't come up to standard in my view. Pretty second rate acting and script. Disappointing - scenery, costumes etc are pretty good. Hard to follow.
This 'James Bond' is very good, though obviously a 21st century version of the stories with Sean Connery as 007 ;so much faster and perhaps more vicious than the old ones.
Another great bond movie worth watching
Bond is back as a real person
I liked the other James Bond Actors better
Despite its apparent new take on the Bond franchise, this is really more of the same...
It was a bit more violent than the other Bond movies, but entertaining. Not something you watch if you just want a relaxing evening as there are a lot of twists so you've got to be listening and watching carefully to keep up with what's going on.
Probably not the best Bond movie ever made, but entertaining none the less. Seemed to slow down a little before picking up pace again.
good video for the new style of 007 movies
a good male film by husband enjoed it very much well worth a watch
Fairly typical Bond movie - expect to see more of the usual. Not a bad watch though.
So pleased I did not pay to watch it at the movies
loved every bit of this movie.
I had a lot of fun watching this film, the 'fancy footwork' at the beginning of the movie blew me away.
I especially liked the way daniel craig carried himself, he still has all the sophistication, intellect one would expect from 007 but without the snootyness the others had. Hope to see more of this..
More realistic than the early Bond movies
best bond movie ever, left me wanting more
action action action
poker scenes were predictable
nooe lives happily ever after at the end of this flick
Excellent movie - the action in the first 10 minutes or so does not stop, but then the movie settles down to a good pace
Less emphasis on the gadget side of things, which was refreshing
An excellent James Bond movie. The opening scenes are always breathtaking and I always wonder how they are going to top it in the next movie. This one does not disappoint - and of course Daniel Craig is wonderful eye candy and probably the fittest looking James Bond out of the lot of them!
probably the best bond movie in recent times.No silly one liners or cheap gadgets,just action.
I thought it was better than the over the top james bond films that we have seen recently... no underground lair though, what a pity.
Really enjoyed watching this film. It was action packed with lots of great stunts. Good entertainment!
Not good enough action scenes, quite boring and what seems like 3 endings
Not the best James Bond thats for sure.
Excellent action, great stunts. Daniel Craig is an execellent and more realistic Bond.
Best James Bond movie we have seen!!
I think the new Bond is portrayed well in this movie in which some ways should have been the first of the Bond movies as it is James' initial introduction to the 007 status. The action scenes are fantastic and the scenery and locations are Bond all the way. But PLEASE that is "NO" way to treat an Astin Martin Vanquish!!!
A very exciting and fast action movie in parts. An excellent storyline and while Daniel Craig makes a very good James Bond, I don't think anyone will ever be as good as Sean Connery or Roger Moore. They just had the right combination of humor, together with their ability to portray Bond with a suave style not present in this one. Still worth watching.
B(l)ond is back!! Non-stop action, great sound.
This 007 flick is a precursor to the series and is probably the best bond I've seen. Adds a personal side to the MI5 spy.
Let's face it, the old formula was becoming tedious and this is a welcome change in direction for Bond films. The story progresses at a cracking pace and the action is very believable. Daniel Craig is a more human Bond. When he is hit violently by a thug you frequently wince in empathy as if you feel the pain too. He even falls in love.
However, it can be confusing at times. It's obviously a prequel but the setting is today, as evidenced by the technology. It also shows how he acquired his 1960s Aston Martin, yet Dame Judi Dench is still M. Many things are explained in this film about Bond's later behavior but the less said about this the better.
Minor shortcomings aside, this is a great action film and a worthy addition to the series.
Awesome James Bond Movie, Starts off with action from the first minute and doesn't stop until the last minute, a must for all action and Bond fans.
