This may be the worst Bond movie yet. It certainly moves the Roger Moore titles up a notch on my list.

I can't really think of anything I liked about this movie. I do like Daniel Craig and Judi Dench, but not in this movie. The story was uninteresting. The casting was uninspired. The setting, dull. The villian, dull. The so-called threat to the world? Hokey. Didn't believe it for a minute. Didn't care if the villian managed to pull it off.

The action sequences were jumbled and confusing. Bad filming technique. What was the director thinking? What were the camera crew thinking? I've seen better student films!

There will probably be another Bond film coming along in a few years and if it has Daniel Craig in it, I will watch it at least once but for now, I'll be re-watching the Sean Connery Bond films.
