I agree with the reviewer who said the plot was a bit disjointed, and there were a few times I got nervous because the stunts were a bit "out there", but overall this film was a lot of fun. More chances were taken on film in terms of bringing in traditional Bond elements while still keeping with the serious style of Daniel Craig. I would surmise this is due to the 50th anniversary and wanting to make a film that paid respect to all other Bonds and films. I think writers and directors intend to keep Bond evolving with the ages, so those who are always expecting a "traditional" film will not always receive it. Bond is versatile...that is the nature of his character, and should be the nature of the films. I look forward to future Bond films to see how they stick with the Bond tradition yet venture out out of the box. Good movie, although I still liked Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace better for their good story lines.
