Hmm...Well, James Bond movies have been coming out for 46 years, but we've only been watching them for maybe half of that time, so we're certainly no experts. But it does seem like 007 is starting to loose a little bit of his charm: there was no introduction ("Bond. James Bond.") in this film, nor was there a quick order of a martini shaken, not stirred. Nonetheless, there were lots of chases via foot and vehicle, lots of cool technology, M, and really cool locations. And two girls. I guess I'm just afraid that James Bond is turning into Jason Bourne. But we liked this movie. It was intense. The next (23rd) installment comes out in 2010, or so I've read.
