British spy movies are aiight but I aint gonna front, after watching this latest James Bond flick, I might just run out and cop the action figures from the toy store or something…for my nephew…you didn’t think I meant for me did you? From the killer (one of the hazards of being a spy) opening scene with Bond’s sexy sidekick Miss Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) to the meaningful conclusion, this flick’s action sequences are off the chain.
