- Daniel Craig and the rest of the cast are very good.
- Excellent location choices and some very good scenes showing them off.
- Ties up some of the unanswered questions from Casino Royale.
- Poorly executed action scenes
- A plot moving so quickly and with so little down time that the viewer is never invested in the story or the characters.
- Really weak opening theme.
A movie with solid groundwork ends up getting lost in the execution. As a result, the shortest of the Bond film feels like one of the longest. While the film does perform as a nice cap to Casino Royale it comes across more like an extended coda than a fully realized Bond film.
