This is the best bond movie to date. The movie plot provides a rare insight into Bond's past and at the end ties you right back into the original Bond movies from the 1960s. The use of the old and new "gadgets" is fun and provides a nice sense of nostalgia. There is plenty of action though not quite as much as the coveted "Casino Royale", Daniel Craigs's first Bond film. The slower moving plot is necessary though in order to better develop the characters. I'm already eager for the next one!
