Writing's on the Wall sounded terrible the first time I heard it but the more I listen to it the more I like it.

Daniel Craig shows 0 personality in this movie. He has turned Bond into a boring and worthless character. No charm or wits of previous Bond actors.

I felt the same way. I feel like he didn't give a crap and just wanted to get it over with. Also turned me off when he was complaining about the process of being Bond and just overall, being a whiny b*tch.

Daniel Craig should be grateful to have the Bond title and money that comes with it. All his other non-Bond movies have been massive Boxoffice Flops. If it wasn't for the Bond movies, he would be living out of his car. I think they need to cast a new Bond now.

Agreed. I believe they are looking for a new Bond now. I don't think Daniel Craig wants to be back and I think it would be wise for the studio to move on from him as well.

Don't be too sure...it's all about Tactics....and he will probably be back if they offer him a nice big fat paycheck....it's ALL about the MONEY at the end of the day!

I wanted to originally catch this in the cinema, but it stopped playing pretty quickly around me, and I wasn't willing to make a longer drive to catch it because of the middling reviews. Now, I'm not even sure I want to watch it on video.

The Independent has learnt that a decision on whether Craig will return as Bond has not been reached, but if he does appear in Purity it does not necessarily mean he will not be back to play Bond.

The Bond movies need to get back to their roots. They are way too serious and boring. They used to be fun and exciting.

If he gives up the role ultimately, then they didn't offer him enough money...OR he got offered MORE money than his JB gig to jump over to the TV series.

I for one hope he is done with James Bond...he is not my fave James Bond...my fave of the newer generation of Bonds was Pierce Brosnan...and we need someone like him to bring back the Bond franchise to its action packed yet fun-style again. If I wanted a too gritty action spy....I would watch Jason Bourne (except the stupid Paul Greengrass versions....I hate his lazy drunken style camera-style...and that is why I am not really excited for the next Bourne movie...unless he gives up his stupid shakey-cam techniques).

Deadpool...which was Awwwwwesome...is MY new James Bond. Action, Violence and Comedy....so true to the comicbook character.

Watched Deadpool yesterday at Scotiabank Theatre's IMAX cinema. :)

Spectre was a snooze fest. Never liked Craig as Bond. He's neither good looking nor charismatic. I much preferred the recent Man from UBCLE in terms of spy movies.

I'll be glad if he steps down and let somebody else bring new life into the character. At least somebody who wants to play the character, rather that it being a chore.

There's no sense of fun in these movies. I liked Casino Royale (just because Eva Green was a great female lead), but I just can't connect with Craig at all.
