This is an interesting makeover (apart from the ludicrous torture sequence) as it ditches much of the playfulness of Brosnan (which was entertaining) for a more three-dimensional Bond (Craig is great). It pushes the action boundaries of Hollywood with two terrific set pieces: Tony Jaa’s pyrotechnic agility is nicked from Ong Bak in the first; the use of an airport even beats Face/Off.
Interesting coda too; the film climaxes and then goes into a longeur for half an hour(?). Well worth the price. (Cineworld)
