The film opens with Bond engaged in one dangerous locale after another. This is the start of something big right away. And,almost 20 mins in we are supposed to believe that Bond is taken out, no I don't think so. The decision to shoot Bond was made by M, played by the brillant Dame Judi Dench. She had no real choice, Bond was being used as a human shield, a split decision made by M. She was called on the carpet by Mallory, played by Ralph Fiennes, her new boss in MI6. She was writing Bond's obituary as she was herself was learning hers. Though M is not ready to retire, and,this film is hers as much as it is Bond's. M is a figure to revere and to love.
Javier Bardem, plays Silva, a bleached blonde computer wizard, and as he put Bond through his paces, I was reminded of the early days of 007, and how much he has become a part of our culture. Not just the Bond women, but the old timers like Judi Dench and those who have come and gone. We end up in Kincade's Scottish mansion. Albert Finney another oldie but goodie has things to say and places to go. And, the beautiful Aston Martin makes a reappearance. Not ready to say goid-bye, not at all.

Bear it no mind. For our patience, we are handed a classic Bond story, some non-stop action, and some surprising perspectives that give the usual cliches at least a hard shove, and occasionally actually ring the audience's head. While Javier Bardem is no stranger to villiany, his motives leave us with subtle questions of right and wrong. Yet his actions are what stirs our tanned, well-rested hero back into service. Welcome back, Mr. Bond. You'll find your office over in the gray area now.
