This is #20 in the 007 film series, and the last one before the big reboot.
I was disappointed. There were the usual moments of coolness, an invisible car, witty comments, nifty looking suites, but there was just something that seemed like it was off with the film.
It felt almost as if they were trying to combine two films into this one, and there wasn't the kind of chemistry between the pairing of Brosnan and Berry as you would have hoped. These are two great action stars, but this film didn't mix them well at all.
The film just seemed to drag for me, and the opening shots were comical at best, and didn't feel like they fit with the storyline.
what do i think i learned from this film?
Shinny things are pretty and sword fights are a lost art.
