The man with the beard

The final adventure of canonical James Bond books and films. Bond turns 77, and it's time to retire (although it's not mentioned in the film). Bond gets captured and gets a beautiful beard during the time of imprisonment. Then he get's back, and it's time for a new mission! Diamonds, gene therapy... it's one of the most complex Bond-stories ever, but often complained of being "silly". Well, this time they look further to the fantasy than ever before, but the film is still pretty balanced. It contains a lot of awesome references, and witty lines, like "Not for me", a reply to M after she has told Bond that the world has changed after 9/11. It's also worth mentioning that they saved the ornitologist-joke for this film, although Ian Fleming had used it already in Dr. No. This film is, in the end, worth of watching. Notes for parents: Usually sex is only implied in Bond-films, and nothing is shown. This time there's a scene that strongly implies sex, but no breasts and back are shown at all, luckily. Not really "too much sex", but I clicked that icon anyway.

It's like a videogame. All action and no plot. By the time you've finished watching it, you'll have lost brain cells. There will also be a large chance of hearing loss. The sex scene is explicit for an M-rated film, and the NSA agent is clearly seen having an orgasm.
