Director: Marc Forster
“ This film had a lot to live up to after Casino Royale and it didn't deliver. Craig is still superb as Bond though the films lacks direction with an over-emphasis on action rather than plot. Still, it is a solid sequel and leaves the door open to continue the storyline onto Bond 23. ” - xpvista

Director: Michael Apted
“ This film is pretty average at best. M is given a greater role in this film than any other and Judi Dench excels. Sophie Marceau is good as the villainess but Denise Richards is terrible as Dr Christmas Jones. The set-piece along the River Themes is terrific though this is one of only a handful of highlights this film has. ” - xpvista

Director: Guy Hamilton
“ A guilty pleasure of mine. Being blunt this is not a good movie at all. There are however some very funny moments and one-liners. This is the funniest Bond film of the series and can not be taken seriously as a serious spy thriller. ” - xpvista

Director: Lewis Gilbert
“ This was meant to be Sean Connery's final Bond, before coming back in Diamonds. He gives his worst account of Bond here; over-weight and disinterested. The plot itself is ridiculous and obscene. Not a good film. ” - xpvista
