...watching Die Another Day on TV, and once again I am reminded of how much Daniel Craig is not a Bond. He simply does not have the same effortless yet menacing elegance that allows Pierce Brosnan to knock on a hotel door, punch the occupant in the face, come inside and root around in the desk without the exotic beauty on the bed in her underwear so much as batting an eyelid.
Daniel Craig can be a wonderful Mossad assassin, and a wonderful Irish mob assassin. But he is not an assassin In Her Majesty's Secret Service.
