I have always thought the latest incarnation of JB was probably the most believable one as a secret agent that can do all those cool stunts. What I liked about this movie is that it still the over the top stunts and fight scenes of a bond film but was also in parts almost beliavable that something like this can happen in real life. I kind of liked the fact that it didnt have much gadgetary even though I loved the old stuff bond had. In that I think it adds a layer of believability to the film. I also liked that they made bond more vulnerable. Like when he got shot, you saw the effects of the injury. The settings in China, England and Scottland were awesome. Overall a very good bond film in sheer simplicity.
