Not a ton of character exploration, but just enough examination to keep this from shifting into the realm of conspiracy theory/fact finding documentaries.
The theory, the execution, and the dedication to the experiment are all enthralling. An absolute fascinating watch.
An absolute time capsule of the early 90’s. Moody, flashy, tacky awesomeness.
Almost all of the acting is top notch (not Ashley Judd) and Mann’s direction is fantastic, moving the story along at a great clip (certainly doesn’t feel like 3 hours).
Immensely re-watchable, this film is just damn cool.
Works as a spy film, action film, revenge film, and siege film. Does a good job at taking relatively small stakes (for a Bond film), and blowing them up on a grander scale. So easily digestible, this film is fun to watch, has the just the right amount of humor, and is the best looking Bond film ever.
