Off the top of my head, though, I'm pretty confident in saying that the critics who argue QoS isn't as good as CR are absolutely right, but those who say it's a bad film--or one that barely feels like a Bond movie--are absolutely wrong. Moreover, I'd like to personally slap each and every critic who claims this is more like Bourne than Bond. I'll repeat: Bourne goes through his movies in a state of partial amnesia, killing and kicking butt just so people will leave him alone. Bond is a man on a mission--as he says in the film, he's motivated by his duty, and he sees what his duty is even when his superiors don't. You care about Bond in a way you don't care about Bourne. Once again, Daniel Craig does an excellent job of playing Bond as a driven, no-nonsense assassin who still has a heart and a conscience. It's a good performance.

Can I stand behind you to give those critics a slap too ? )

Just curious about something. I went to the second showing at my local theater today. Did anyone else get a QoS keychain? I also noticed small posters on the counter for QoS, but didn't pick one up.
One other thing I noticed. Even though I went to an early weekday showing, the theater I was in was quite big. But, there was only 7 people in a theater that could hold 70 to 100 people. How full were everyones elses theaters? I direct this question to the USA audience.
