Fun romp - just don't bring your brain
Fun and entertaining movie all around as long as you keep your brain turned off. Craig did a better job in this movie with owning the persona of James Bond, but his womanizing still feels forced and the script allows his "charms" to work every time when they most likely wouldn't have. Bad guy did a good job but I think could have been used a lot more. Without giving spoilers, the plot is overly complicated for the sake of it when the end result ended up making most of the complicated steps unnecessary.
I'm fine with lots of twists and turns, but at the end of the movie and I look back at what all has been done, I hate it when I have to say "why did they have to do all that when they could have done X or Y at the very beginning and be done with it?" Had no parallels that I could see from the prior Quantum of Solace movie. No resolution of some of the big plots they created there.
