I consider him as the most rogue 007 in histories, he is not the typical handsome looking James Bond that is portrait through out history (well he is the one that get hit in the sack a few times, a painful scene I might add), and the ruggedness in him define the new James Bond, like what Dominic Green (the villain in this episodes) said “damages goods”, to some he don’t suit the role but to the other part he give the role a new definition.
I heard a lot of bad comment of this movie before watching it, “not as expected”, “the actors don’t fit the role”, “boring” or “I don’t know where it is going”.
Well for me, I say it is well done.
A story of vengeance, trust and how to let it go, this brings back scene of Casino Royal, well the story is link and a lot of names appear in this movie is from the last one, so watch Casino Royal before watching this, if not there might be some confusion & distraction. As said before this is a different type of Bond, this time there is less high-tech equipments, less glamorous car, more on action and reality~
Funny Trivia: The movie shows some similarity of James Bond’s gun and the mobile phone of now a days, both of it evolve from big to small and now back to being big :p.
