Saw the new Bond movie today.
No gadgets, 2 brief Bond Girls, and you don't see the bad guy for the first 30 minutes,

But it was awesome!!

Best Daniel Craig 007 movie yet!

Agree! Won't say why but saddening at the end.

Let's try not to post spoilers at least for a week.

I saw it last night and loved it. The ending was bitter-sweet, but it was the right way to end it.

But I would like to beat the crap out of the writer for what he did to the icon.

A fantastic tribute for Bond and the fifty year anniversary. A bit of a bitter sweet ending, but with promise for a bright future! Lots of action, great intro sequense and all the stle you can handle.

At the theatre now, as usual with bond flicks I will leave here with a great desire for a PPK...

I felt very underwhelmed by the movie. But i guess im the minority on that. Also, im not a huge bond fan to begin with, so i think a lot of references went directly over my head.

Don't you think it is time for Bond to bring his sidearm into the modern era.

It has to be compact, reliable, and able to equip a suppressor.

What do you recommend MI6 adopt?

Im a sucker for tradition: Bond should always have a PPK.

On another note, did Glock sponsor this movie or what??????? Everyone and their kid brother had one in this flick...

Great return to the old bond values. Nice to see it getting back to its roots. Everyone dies sometime.
