Critic Review - Chicago Sun-Times

This is a full-blooded, joyous, intelligent celebration of a beloved cultural icon, with Daniel Craig taking full possession of a role he previously played unconvincingly.

I don't understand. You have nothing but four-star praise for Craig in his two previous outings as Bond.

He gave Quantum of Solace a 2/4. That doesn't scream praise...

You might want to reread his reviews. We are talking about Craig's performance. In both CR and QOS, he screams praise for Craig's performances. Yet in this review, he states that previously Craig didn't play Bond convincingly.

It seems to me (while its still an odd statement) He was referencing that Quantum of Solace was an unconvincing Bond film, and thus the interpretation of Bond previously felt unconvincing.

The build-up for seeing this is now officially killing me. 4/4 from Ebert; is there really anything left to say this movie won't be great?

even this old crank gave it four stars? Gotta see it!

Though he loved Casino Royale, I think he means Craig was reduced to a typical action hero. He acted well but didn't have more to do. In this, he seems to have acted much better with a great script. I think that's it. :D
