Two words: Unmitigated CRAP
First of all, I love the James Bond franchise, especially Die Another Day and The Man with the Golden Gun. Sadly, ever since Daniel Craig was appointed as the new 007, the franchise has taken a steep nose-dive, by messing with the core mechanics of the franchise – James Bond is NOT blonde!
Before, I’m attacked for being mean to Daniel Craig, I’d like to state that he is a great actor, but not a fitting James Bond. No offence, bud.
Now, onto the movie. The saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” applies perfectly. The movie digs itself into a grave, with its constant messing of the 007 formula. The plot is forgettable, and entirely cliched; no particular actor or actresses’ performance stands out. Berenice Marlohe‘s character seemed promising, but then her role ended, just like that. Obviously, these guys have just tried to fit in another movie for the Golden Jubilee of the franchise, without having thought it out properly. Even the sets seemed copied, with one looking stolen from Kung Fu Hustle.
Final verdict? Stay away from this movie. Avoid it like the plague! You will be DYING to see the credits roll.
