Definitely one of the better Bonds, although I'd still rank Casino higher. After the fantastic opening, I thought it took a little too
long before the action picked up again. And despite the brilliant direction, it didn't feel like there was anything terribly unique or original going on in the story.
But WOW did this movie look good. And some of the sequences (like the shooting contest on the island, or the attack on the parliament building) were some of the most suspenseful I've ever seen in a Bond movie.
