So, I actually ended up seeing this movie all the way through for the first time a few nights back. And - while its clearly badly directed, poorly acted, and terribly written, I have to admit that I found it pretty watchable. I think the key for me was accepting that this was the most comic book of Bonds, as if it was a faithful adaptation of the old Dark Horse miniseries. All surface, all gloss, all Extreme. The first third almost kinda works, but as the Matts pointed out, once you get to that incredibly on-the-nose use of "London Calling", the stupidity level just shoots through the roof.
