Not as dark or evil as "Skyfall", not as silly plot-wise as "Quantum of Solace", not as suave as "Casino Royale". But all those negatives add up to a damned good Bond movie. Stunts, touristy locations, humour, a suave hero, and the certainty that all will end well.
The ending ***SPOILER ALERT!!!*** feels as though you should be wondering whether there are any more Bonds in the pipeline. In fact, the whole movie seems a collage of previous Bonds: we have the baddie attacking James and his lady in the train, we have a paper shooting target with Bond's face on it, we have the villain's white cat. Whether homages or lazy writing, they will either delight you in a nostalgic way, or... not.
