I've seen every Bond film since Dr. No, and this left the others in the dust. Much greater depth to the characters, lent not only by a great script by also by stunning performances from Dench, Craig, et al. I really cared about what happens to the characters. If a bit darker means a lot deeper, I'll take it! And this outing seals my conviction that Craig is the best Bond ever (never thought anyone could possibly top Connery). Highly recommended.
