James Bond (Daniel Craig) is seeking revenge for the death of a lady friend of his, and M (Judi Dench) is not happy about that, but she wants to job to be done. Bond pairs with sexy Camille (Olda Kurylenko) to take down Dominic Greene (Mathiew Amaric).
Watching this, I realised that I’m not a fan of Daniel Craig as Bond. I know, in reviewing Skyfall, I mentioned the lack of sparkle in his eyes and I thought it was part of the film, but even in this, he seems cool and detached. But not in that good way of other Bonds. This film had all of those good running, chasing, blowing up scenes. The huge hotel/desert stuff at the end was totally magnificent. But still…
Harold Crick(Will Ferrell) is an ordinary guy. He works for Internal Revenue and has an ordered and repetitive existence until two things happen; he meets the beautiful baker Ana Pascal (Maggie Gyllenhaal) and he starts to hear a female voice narrating his every move. He doesn’t believe he is crazy, but cannot imagine that he is the creation of author Karen Eiffel (Emma Thompson) or what this could possibly mean for his future.
This is such a beautiful film. The concept is so clever and it is executed to make a wonderful and fabulous film that everyone should see over and over again.
