Subject: RE: BS: Does the new James Bond fit the role ?
See it and make up your own mind. While the troll may call it the worst Bond flick ever, the individual is not telling us what their standards are.   If you like the far-fetched hijinks of the recent films, if you are looking for a plot that doesn't take much effort to follow, if you are looking for a bubblegum shoot-em-up flick, then stay away.

I felt that there were many twists and turns to the plot - which used to be the hallmark of good spy flicks and novels. It was nice to see that brought back instead of watching Bond doing tricks that would be out of place in comic books.

To say that Craig is laughable in the role sounds like the "critic" is holding him up to the standard set by Moore and Brosnan. No, he is not a pretty-boy that waltzes through a role on his looks. Craig is actually a good actor that looks the part he is supposed to be playing.

If you do not walk into the film with pre-conceived notions, I think you will find this to be a good flick. If you like the popcorn feel of the Brosnan and Moore flicks, then you should probably stay away.

Give it a chance - it s a new Bond for a new generation of movie goers. I think it is the first Bond flick in decades with any substance.
