Approached this with a lot of baggage, but it turned out to be rather good, and actually structurally a bit more serious and competent than most generic Bond knock-offs. Judi Dench, Eva Green, Daniel Craig and the rest of the cast all turned in solid performances.
The graphic violence was somewhat more realistic and disturbing than I would normally expect to see in your usual 007 entry, and it amazes me this got a PG13 rating—there must be some pretty hardened thirteen year olds out there. Also it took awhile to get used to a very Nordic looking Bond, but on the whole, it worked out to be a better film than expected.
Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.
