    After reading the thread on 007 I decided to go watch the new bond film. I don't know what all the fuss is about. I thought it was pants!:blink

    It didn't have the feel of a british film, they changed the card game to American style Poker. Felt like another "no story, loads of action film " with very little british feel about it.

    If I had the choice to see new 007 bond film or The Transporter it would be the transporter everytime. That film doesn't have gadgets either but at least Jason Statham looks like a 0078)

    Afraid I must disagree with you there. Obviously, it is all down to a personal opinion, but did you not think that this Bond was a breath of fresh air compared to the others? In the books, Bond is, putting it frankly, a right sh!t, mysoginistic, egotistical and basically a thug, and that is how he is portrayed in this movie, along with having some very dark undertones to it. It certainly did have very little Bristish fell to it but the vast majority of it was based abroad (such as in Venice or Montenegro). And the parkour scenes, I mean come on, they were awesome!!!!

    When I saw the new film I didn't expect it to be the same as the books or the previous films. I just saw the trailer and thought Hmm another action film.

    I was going to leave it and wait for the DVD release, untill I saw the feedback here. So I think if you go into the film as though you have never seen or heard about the world of 007. Then make your mind up and there are so many films out there, which more entertaining!8)

    Well everyone has their preference...but i agree with Cockles, this was THE James Bond we all wanted to see...when Sean Connery played him, he portrayed as suave and sophisticated, Roger Moore almost made him look camp (is that even possible?), George Lazenby...well he tried I will give him that, Timothy Dalton didnt do too bad for a Welshman and Pierce Brosnan did very well...but now that I have seen Daniel Craig, even Sean Connery doesnt compare. Other spy movies like the Bourne films and Transporter have their own niche, but yes they do tend be better than Bond at times...but after Casino Royale, everyone will be wanting to see the Bond 22 sooner rather than later...I know I do...:biggrin
