It's never dull, occasionally surprising and unafraid to delve into Bond's life more than any film since On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Unfortunately, all of that comes at the price of gaping plot holes and staggering lapses in logic.
A memorable, deliciously twisted villain (Javier Bardem), a damaged yet still cool James Bond (Daniel Craig), and a centre-stage plot for the spy chief M (Judi Dench), all add up to the best Bond movie of recent years.
This is a terrific James Bond movie, thoughtfully written, shrewdly cast and taking stock of everything that the 50-year-old franchise has come to mean. But even if it wasn't a Bond film, it would still be darn good.
