Hmm, a long time Bond fan - this is definitely not for me. I come to expect a 'special' agent, lots of gadgets, cars, women, many exotic locations, expensive sets, chases and our hero coming out on top. Good escapism. This film saw M die - Bond failed. Bond was shot - nearly died. Bond failed his physical/mental/shooting tests . . . only one good car chase. Lots of plot holes . . . why did they have a hard drive in Turkey with all the agent's names on???? Why didn't she take lots of shots at the train, take them both out??? Why didn't Bond kill Silva half way thru??? Why didn't they rescue M and Bond at the end??? Hmm, all in all a very disappointing film. It may have been 'realism' but it wasn't Bond. More like a feeble Spooks. Bond failed - this film failed. It was also an hour tooooooo long. I watched Rango the night before and actually preferred it!!
