Bond was not a inexperience baboon fresh to the service.
Bond has class, well polished mannerisms, well established habits, and a defined style.
Bond had his own high end car with his own custom gadgets modifying it and didn’t win it at poker.
Bond didn’t rent a Citroën or fly to the Bahamas after being told to disappear by M after a public screw up in Madagascar.
Bond’s first kill was smooth and professional. His second was a silent job involving a knife and a man who didn’t die quickly. Another professional job Bond surveyed the situation choosing when and where to attack the target.
Beyond how miscast Craig is there are huge discrepancies between the movie and the book.

I never believed Bond should look like someone from Abercrombie & Fitch. Connery and Dalton are handsome but could never pass a male model competition to save their lives. Bond should be handsome yet sharp and rugged like those two and I think Craig fits the bill. Obviously the ladies have no complaints.Capt. Sir Dominic Flandry wrote:Commander 0077 wrote:Fine stuff.

The pro-Craig contingent have ditched their view that James Bond should not look like a male model. Many are advocating casting the likes of McAvoy, Cavill, Davenport should Craig exit the role.

He's boasting about how SPECTRE was run by men, despite the fact that women were working in SPECTRE. Hell, even curses Babs for including the torture scene. This guy clearly hasn't done his research, he was too busy looking at anything "feminist".

There was one line of dialogue that could be interpreted as homoerotic. No worse than Rosa Klebb's obvious attraction to Tatiana in FRWL.

Gee, if that's homoerotic, then having Connery running around in trunks during most of Thunderball is probably the most homoerotic moment in Bond film history.
