In his third 007 movie, Daniel

Craig re­ally hits his stride in a su­per ad­ven­ture that’s very hard to fault. It gets off to a scorch­ing start with a heart-pound­ing chase through Istanbul – which ends with Judi Dench’s M or­der­ing Bond to be shot. But she’s the one in the firing line, as a hard disk con­tain­ing the iden­ti­ties of MI6 agents has got into the wrong hands and her new boss Ralph Fi­ennes is keen to see her re­tire. But can Bond save the day..? Craig and Dench strike ex­cel­lent sparks off each other, Javier Bar­dem’s cy­ber-ter­ror­ist makes a great bad guy, Ben Whishaw en­ter­tains as Q and Naomie Har­ris also makes her role count. The ac­tion se­quences are bril­liantly di­rected by Sam Men­des, but this Bond movie re­ally sets it­self apart by also car­ing about its char­ac­ters.

Dir: Sam Men­des 2012, 12, 170min
