I thought he was alright in the film,his come on/tease towards Bond was a bit unexpected,but its not like we have had that many bad guys actually interested in Bond that way....if he was actually interested in him that way
I had the feeling that he was doing that to Bond to try and put him off his game. As a field agent he has been trained to resist interrogation/torture, and we saw in Casino Royale that he wont give in for mere pain.
Thats exactly what i thought, he was trying to rattle Bonds cool.
As far as the movie, maybe its because it was so hyped up but I really didnt think it was the best Bond evar!!!!! It actually seemed fairly generic to me. Mostly due to the villian, who, to me seemed like a walking collection of cliches. I did like that Bond came off more self assured and experienced this time around and actually seemed competent for a change. Overall, I liked the movie and feel Craig does a great job as Bond but Skyfall still ranks below Thunderball and You Only Live Twice, as the best Bond ever.
