    One of my favorite Bond movies - for a number of reasons.

    To begin with, I loved the title song by Adele as well as the video and the point of the story where the song was placed - a perfect start.

    I also loved the many great locations where the movie was shot. The film was visually very attractive (and sometimes also really unusual) in my opinion.

    I also loved Daniel Craig and the way he portrayed Bond in this one, also his conversations with Q (who was just great) about age and other issues. Hilarious and very sweet. But Craig's performance was not even the most fascinating one: Javier Bardem was an absolutely great villain. This was the first time I saw him in a movie - and he WAS the villain, he was so repulsive and mean that I did not trust my eyes when I watched him in an interview later, looking extremely handsome and talking and smiling like the most pleasant person in the world. That's what I call an actor :)

    Berenice Marlohe was an interesting Bond girl and Judi Dench was great as always, as well as Ralph Fiennes.

    All in all, great entertainment, a scary villain and beautiful visual impressions.

    I've never been much of a fan of the Bond movies and this film didn't change that at all. Visually beautiful, good acting but felt kind of average and predictible. The only shocking thing in the whole movie was spoiler . 4 years 9 months ago

    Bond without being Bond. Beautifully coloured frames, action that is slow enough to follow, thematic content. There's a lot to love in this Bond instalment. It's both a big leap forward for the franchise, and a bit of a sidestep incorporating more modern action elements that cast an appropriate thematic and occasionally visual shadow over the proceedings. Roger Deakins is phenomenal as the film's DOP, and the story is one of the most coherent in decades.

    4 stars.
