My first introduction to Daniel Graig.
26 December 2006 | by (Uk) – See all my reviews

This is my first memory of seeing Mr Graig, in fact I still remember being blown away (slightly over exaggerating) by this story and his amazing performance nearly eight years ago, that surely is a testament to his obviously great acting ability not to mention charisma.

I did try to make a mental note of his name, making sure to check the credits at the end of the film and to be honest, it was such a long time before I saw him on screen again I had forgotten it. What did stick with me though was his face, this I made sure to remember as even back in 1999 when I had no clue of who he was I wished I could have seen more from this brilliant actor.

If you ain't seen the new bond movie then do so, the movie and Mr Graig's portrayal of the British MI6 agent are by far the best to date.

If you get the chance to see this short movie I think you may be pleasantly surprised, I myself was left feeling that I wish more movie story lines had the same conviction.
