Bond Begins

Much like what was successfully done with the Batman franchise with Batman Begins, Bond has been taken back to its inception so that you can once more see how Bond got started. Daniel Craig manages to pull off the role and this film is certainly better than any of the recent Brosnan efforts. It has a better script and there is less reliance on flaky CG. What irked me slightly was the pointing out of the rules of Texas Hold’em at every opportunity but I guess they have to allow for the viewers who wouldn’t have a clue without this help.
