You see I have the complete opposite reaction, this is why I think he is the best bond ever and is taking the movies in a completely new direction that is absolutelty wonderful. Finally, Bond is no longer a cartoon comic book farse, but a gritty, tough, bloody and violent character that is part of our modern society and times. It is a movie an adult can appreciate. He still has the sex appeal, trust me. He is cut more than the last two bonds. Cheesy one liners, I can do without. I totally love it. 8)

This shouldn't surpise you. His first bond movie clearly showed the direction he was taking the character, it brought new life to the franchise and made it the biggest box office bond movie in a long time.

They have tried to take Bond movies in different directions before. Some of the worst Bond movies were some of the ones with Moore. The Jaws character was ridiculous, the one with Jackie Gleason was just plain idiotic. Dalton was the absolute worst Bond because he was a total woos. They purposefully toned down the womanizer image with Dalton and made him a complete wimp. They killed off and did away with the villan characters finally in an effort to go with more intrigue and less comic book farse. That was the best thing they ever did.

Broslin, bronsin, whatever, was OK, but Craig by far is the most believable and realistic. Bond movies, particularly the early ones, were so predictable. You always knew exactly what was going to happen and there was always someone who was going to take over the world. Talk about boring. In my view, there is not a whole lot of difference between the Austin Powers movies and some of the Bond movies, except Austin Powers is meant to be a joke!

Bond's only motivation through the whole movie is revenge, and that, no matter what you care to say, makes for a flat, boring character.
Yes, he is on a revenge trip because it is a continuation of casino royale where his heart was broken and then turned into a stone cold killer. The original version of casino royale was actaully the same way except bond was married and his wife got killed. Thats reality!

Its the number 1 movie right now around the world.
