Number of Times Seen – 2 (29 Nov 2008 and 18 Sep 2014)
Brief Synopsis – Minutes after the previous movie ends, Bond continues his mission in finding the organization behind the events from Casino Royale.
My Take on it – Having watched this practically back to back with Casino Royale (2006), I was finally able to experience this the way it was meant to be viewed.
This movie is an immediate follow-up to it and starts moments after the final scene which is a very rare occurrence even in a sequel.
The only time that I can recall this being done so well elsewhere is with the Back to the Future trilogy.
Daniel Craig is back as 007 and I really like the way that he portrays the character and I think he’s perhaps the best incarnation of Bond.
My one complaint about this movie is that it doesn’t share the momentum of its predecessor and is slower paced than one would expect fron the new sction hero Bond.
Bottom Line – Great sequel that is fun but still isn’t as fast paced as it’s predecessor. Very good edition into the Bond canon that still continues to inject serious action and thrills into the 50 year franchise. Recommended!
Rating – Globe Worthy
