    It’s funny, exciting, preposterous, great to look at, and made with the same level of technical expertise we’d expect from a new Bond movie itself. And all of that is very nice, but nicer still is the perfect pitch of the casting.

    Great actors, wasted on an aimless script and flimsy plot. What's more, the entire thing lacks any of the charm, wit, and unbridled Great actors, wasted on an aimless script and flimsy plot. What's more, the entire thing lacks any of the charm, wit, and unbridled silliness of the original TV show. In fact, the humor is downright dark.
