Saw this last night. On the whole, good fun and, until the mad finale, very tight. Thought the theme tune sucked though, and the special effects sequence of Bond Kite Surfing was very shoddy!

Miranda Frost - yes please.

The opening sequence and then the first hour 1/2 of the film with Bond relying on his resources I really enjoyed. Good stuff.

Probably on the whole though not as wholly convincing as Bond 19. Bring on the next one though, and hope Mr Brosnan will be Bond again, he's fantastic.

Agree on all that except I thought it was better than the last bond.

Oh and I loved all the in jokes.

yes, it wasn't bad, much better than the last one for my money
but it's really turning out as a massive marketing franchise, efficient but soul less (it's not enough to drink grand cru Bollinger champagne to have elegance)

MGM make the substantial majority of their profit from the Bond Franchise TM.

Some of the direction was a bit too John Woo for my taste, but I did enjoy it, you'd be hard pressed not to enjoy a Bond Film really!

I love John Woo direction though.

I hated MI:2 that was the worst film I've seen in a long while, totally crap compared to the first one.

I really liked it.

It's really over the top and preposterous. Good because it's so over the top I find it funny.
