Trivia

To prepare for the role, Daniel Craig read all of Ian Fleming's novels and talked with Mossad and British Secret Service Agents who had served as advisers on Munich (2005). See more »

Goofs

When on the yacht where James is writing his resignation letter to 'M', he finishes the email 'Sincerely'. This is an Americanisation. In British English, the correct form is 'Yours sincerely', something a public school boy would be aware of. Alternatively, the correct form for someone in the British military writing to a senior is 'I remain your most humble and obedient servant'. This perhaps was not used due to the fact he was resigning. See more »

Quotes

Carter: [sees Mollaka in the crowd, watching animals fight] Looks like our man, burn scars on his face.
James Bond: Hmm. I wonder if bomb-makers are insured for things like that.

Daniel Craig you are here to stay!
12 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is among the best bond movies! You have to see it.

After all the controversy and comments on Daniel Craig's potential as an actor and doubts over him playing Bond...i'd say forget it and be enthralled by the new BOND! He's here to stay.

He has that natural feeling about him when you see him on the screen as Bond, that attitude, style, confidence matched only by Sean COnnery. The movie as a whole is extremely entertaining and exciting.The acting is awesome Eva Green actually does a great job and has really improved her acting from the last time i saw her (in kingdom of heaven), but then this is a totally different movie.

There's a lot of action mixed with great story which i am sure will please the true Bond fan.

Please go and watch this because you will regret if you don't, forget the past this is the New Bond.

9/10
