    ★★★★

    Now that is much more like it! Lots of fun and also quite thrilling near the climax. It's really all about Bond winding his way through these precarious situations, often courting a beautiful woman at the end of the set piece.

For me personally, the "non-action" parts of the James Bond films were always my favorite, but damn were the action scenes good here. Not only is there a very big focus on verticality, Bond actually gets hurt. With every fight scene, you're always reminded that he is human and…
