Saw it today. I thought it was fantastic.

Great opening scene that sucked me right in. Bardem was over the top but it really worked for me, I love the eccentric psychopath role he played - no doubt one of my favorite Bond baddies. It felt different from
pretty much all the Bond films and it was interesting to see him struggling so much when he came back from being the coolest drunk ever. It made Shanghai look like the coolest city that's ever existed, brilliantly shot. Was also great to see so much of it shot in London too. Was interesting to see tidbits from Bond's past and I loved the last words that M had for him considering their confrontational past over the last 3 movies.

Can't recommend it enough.
"Just be yourself" is good advice to probably 5% of people.
