This movie would have been best served at Easter. Javier Bardem hammed it up way over the top. The direction was below average and the story choppy. I have seen all the Bond films when they hit the theaters and thought the Roger Moore series was silly and not worthy of a Bond movie, but I have to admit this one, although not the silly story lines, falls into the lower 5 Bond films. If you must see it, wait for the DVD, it's not worth the cost of a movie ticket. It is perhaps for Daniel Craig to ask to redo some of the Moore series.
