    It was fine, I think. Not as good as Vice or The Big Short, by a comfortable margin, but it was fine.

    • I did think a few times that this premise (a nice enough analogy) might’ve been better served by a short film? Certainly I think they should’ve had a tighter hand in the edit, though, this is a bit meandering.

    • Might’ve been better to commit more fully to the downfall of Leo’s character, rather than giving him…

    Been meaning to watch this for ages, both in general (because I’ve never seen it before) and recently specifically because of NWH. 

    Really liked it anyway. There’s something quite endearingly goofy about the whole thing (Maguire charming as a total weirdo) and it looks great too, that heightened comic booky exaggerated feel. Good time.

    More thoughts to come I’m sure, but my immediate reaction is just that I really, really liked this. Stands really well as a conclusion to Craig’s era, feels like it hugely rewarded my watching the prior four this past week. Glad I did, don’t think I’d have got as much out of it if I hadn’t.

    I’m absolutely a convert now, just extremely on board for James Bond after this. Or at least for Craig’s Bond anyway.

    Not seen this before, and found it basically quite charming and likeable. Miracle I didn’t watch it a decade ago, mind, that could’ve done some real damage.
