Bond. James Bond
Went to see James Bond on Thursday. I really enjoyed it. I was a bit skeptical of Daniel Craig as James Bond but it wasn't too bad. Don't think he will be taking the Bond crown off Sean Connery though.
The first 10 minutes of the film were the best. Bond was chasing a bad guy, who is real life is a street runner (runs and jumps on the roof tops around London) It is pretty amazing to watch, at one point he climbs straight up a steel girder.
The only downfall was that it didn't feel very much like a James Bond film. The film it self was entirely gadget free. I know that the last couple of Bond films had become gadget obsessed and were highly unbelievable. But I think Bond does need one or two toys to help him.
This Bond is much more grittier and darker. We get to see a different side to Bond. As it is a prequel it makes to audience realise what happen to Bond to make him the cold person he is in his other films.
I also like the fact that it is very near to the book, only updated slighty.
A must see.
