Daniel Craig is the best Bond since Connery, and 'Casino' is the best Bond flick since 'From Russia With Love'. (There have been other good ones, but not this good.) I haven't seen 'Quantum of Solace' yet, but given a couple more movies, I think Craig could give Connery a run for the best Bond in history.
The new James Bond kicks #!@%*# and takes names, to be sure. The action sequences are breath-taking in their scope and their execution. I liked the rogue undertones to Bond. Daniel Craig is the perfect Bond for the 21st Century.

Defiance is a good movie bordering on great. Daniel Craig and Liev Schreiber give stirring performances. The only thing keeping this movie from greatness is allowing the audience time to get to understand what makes these characters tick.
Christian's Need Not Fear This Movie!

As a self described and practicing bible thumping Christian - I can see where folks of my ilk would be uncomfortable with this movie. Having not read the books (yet), I wasn't sure if the Magisterium represented the church or the government.
I loved it! The underlying theme was very much in favor of science, but so what?
Chill Out and enjoy the movie for it's entertainment value. We need not fear it!
Can't wait for the next installment and I"m going to read the book.
