This movie wasn't that good. It's entertaining but a bit thin and preposterous... but that comes with the territory.

Any chance we'll get the Bond we all know? At the end of CR, we got him with the suit, gun and the music, as if to show, in Batman Begins style, that this is the Bond we all know. Ironically, this new film ends the same way, with Bond actually the Bond we know, with Q, M, and Moneypenny only fully in place at the end of the film.

It's almost like we haven't got to a real Bond adventure yet that wasn't in fact a prequel.
It feels like this film wants to make us forget about Quantum of Solace. Casino Royale and Skyfall taken together are a great couple. CS starts out rough and dirty with nothing in place, and Skyfall ends smooth and clean with everything in place.
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
