Yes, Bond is Back and Better Than Ever!
Or at least, as good as ever. This is a handsome, exciting, film that finds a meeting ground between the old-school Bond travelogue + action formula and more modern action-movie tropes. Craig is great, Dench is wonderful, Bardem is chilling, Ralph Fiennes is having a blast and Albert Finney is a gem. All in all, a worthy addition to the canon that does a great job of building excitement for the next entry.
My only complaint is that irritating Adele song - "In the SkyFOAL, when it crumBOWL" - over and over. Oy. Probably better than that Jack White - Alicia Keys disaster, though!
