In this outing as James Bond, Daniel Craig doesn't disappoint. He still makes the character believable. He also shows growth in the character rather than being the flat character that previous Bonds seem to be. Craig's Bond shows compassion and a wider range of feelings. He has a backstory that gives the audience more than a screen full of chesty, curvy women, car chases and explosions, although there is still plenty of that.
Sam Mendes turn as director isn't failing. He's put that backstory into play brilliantly giving Bond, whether it be Craig or the much speculated Idris Elba, something to fight for and something more to be. The character has so much potential. These days people want to see flawed heroes so they know that heroes are people too.
If you aren't sure about going to see this film, do it anyway. You won't be sorry that you did.
