Reviews


  • Paul Byrnes (Sidney Morning Herald)

    Craig brings beef, biff and a slightly lonely dimension to the character. He's a fine actor and he has some of the working-class bile of the young Michael Caine. A new James Bond has certainly arrived.

  • Jake Wilson (The Age)

    Basically, Craig's Bond is a new and individual creation.

  • Christopher Orr (The Atlantic)

    Unlike recent Bonds, whose kills had no more weight than the one-liners that generally accompanied them, Craig's tend to be intimate, bloody, and devoid of glamour. Full Review ...
