I must admit, I was a bit skeptical that Daniel Craig could pull it off. I liked him in his other work, but he just didn’t fit the image of Bond in my mind. So it is with great relief that I say:
THIS MOVIE ROCKED.
It’s quite possibly the best action film I’ve seen in several years and easily my favorite Bond movie of all time. The stuff I always disliked about the Bond franchise was removed or toned down, and all the stuff I loved was beefed up. Craig’s acting was superb. He’s one of those actors who can clearly communicate three or four emotions at one time, often without even saying a word.
He had a pretty solid build on him as well. Respectable size (similar to Bale in Batman Begins, only leaner). Certainly not pro or top amateur bodybuilder-type body here, but far above average.
