Well its my opinion....
Im sure its partly because i went in there expecting too much but I left thinking "thats what all the fuss is about?".....However there is a lot in it to love, it was beautifully shot, by far the best looking bond...I liked the fact they took risks, i didnt expect certain people to die so soon etc.
But for me it was no better than other blockbusters this year, for example The Avengers I felt was a much better film....Its all feeling a bit like when the lastest Mission Impossible came out and everyone was "oh its the best yet, as good as the first" again I just didnt get the praise.
Maybe I missing something, I was a fan of the old school connery bond when I was child, adored Dr No and Goldfinger....However minus CR, im just not feeling these newer ones.
guess its a case of different strokes for different folks
