One review

  • I have never seen James Bond more helpless, unsure, lost, pitiful, weak, and left to circumstances than in this Bond Movie. The masterful and and man-in-control aura given to the character of 007 by Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnon are so thoroughly shredded apart that Bond in this movie is a better impersonation of a dimwit street thug, than a deadly operative of British Secret Thugs.

    There are at least three sequences in movie where Bond is completely at the mercy of fate for his survival. Such humane angle are good if you are making a sensitive, heart touching movie, but out of place for a screen name legendary for its toughness.

    The action sequences are okay but the story line is so stretched that it becomes considerably thin by the end. And Daniel Craig seems like the the silliest of the Bonds to play role ever and there is a movie which should be avoided at all cost.But of course, if you are comfortable viewing Bond writhing to death by poison, or getting his balls beaten to pulp, then go for it.
