I guess I keep waiting for the next Casino Royale. I had high expectations for this movie and it did let me down a bit. A typical Bond movie, but setting up for a new series with a new cast. Like I said, lots of action, the story takes a back seat, but well done overall.
That Adele song sounds much better in the movie than it does on the radio.

So the IMAX screen was incredible! I do not understand why the gun barrel sequence was placed where it was but, ok. The entire movie seemed like an effort to refresh the Jame Bond brand. Although I about went deaf during the movie because the theatre I was at had the volume turned up way past the too loud marker and the popcorn was burnt and had that sickening smell to it. I can not blame the movie for the pitfalls. I plan to try it again somewhere else.

If you are a fan of Casino Royal then you will enjoy this movie! Great action sequences which is a given since its a Bond movie. Looking forward to more Bond movies after this one.

I really enjoyed the latest installment of the Bond films. Much more a character-based drama than previous Bond films have been, and it is not short on action either.
Great tributes/nods to previous films in the franchise and a fabulous introduction to old covers (Q, among others)!
The movie has a great pacing, shown by the feeling that it ends too quickly, even though you spent 2.5 hours watching the screen.

Can't decide which was better but who cares! One of the best movies I've seen this year and without a doubt one of the best Bond movies ever. Doesn't matter if you like Bond movies or not, this was simply extremely well done, entertaining, with great performances from great actors, with a great script.
