When James finds Vesper sitting in the shower, she says "It's like there's blood on my hands and it's not coming off" but her lip movements do not match what she's saying. See more »
[after tasting the Dry Martini]
I think I'll call it a Vesper.
Because of the bitter aftertaste?
No, because once you've tasted it, that's all you want to drink.

The opening credits are played over imagery of playing cards and other gambling-type imagery. This sequence is unusual compared to other Bond films in that it doesn't focus on silhouettes of nude women. See more »
This is among the best bond movies! You have to see it.
After all the controversy and comments on Daniel Craig's potential as an actor and doubts over him playing Bond...i'd say forget it and be enthralled by the new BOND! He's here to stay.
He has that natural feeling about him when you see him on the screen as Bond, that attitude, style, confidence matched only by Sean COnnery. The movie as a whole is extremely entertaining and exciting.The acting is awesome Eva Green actually does a great job and has really improved her acting from the last time i saw her (in kingdom of heaven), but then this is a totally different movie.
There's a lot of action mixed with great story which i am sure will please the true Bond fan.
Please go and watch this because you will regret if you don't, forget the past this is the New Bond.
