The second Bond outing and there is a smooth quality to it but there is still something missing. Having said that, is this a good movie?

Kind of. Bit empty by todays standards but Sean carries it really well. If he wasn’t here I’d probably not bother with it. At least there is a gadget this time – the suitcase. That’s really all though.

Music is fantastic though. Honestly, I believe that if the music wasn’t as good, we would never have heard of James Bond.

Lots of glamour and girls with an international bad guy. Not bad just not great.
