The movie starts in Mexico City at a huge Día de Muertos celebration. The streets are packed with people dressed as skeletons, and Bond, as usual, is on the prowl. He sees a bad guy, tries to shoot him, that doesn't work, then he follows him through the streets, both get on a helicopter and tussle about, Bond pushes him out of the aircraft, and then flies away (all in a day's work). Then the theme song starts. I was disappointed that the opening song ("Writing's on the Wall," performed by Sam Smith) has nothing to do with the name of the movie (unlike the theme song for Diamonds are Forever or the song for Die Another Day). The effects themselves weren't very good, especially a huge octopus throughout the scene, which was just creepy.

Admittedly, I've never seen Daniel Craig as a believable Bond: he's blonde, and quite frankly I don't find him attractive in the least. All in all I am quite blasé about this film. I give it 2 of 5 stars.
