I didn't have any advance warning about this film's subject or story. Rented the DVD from the local store after seeing Daniel Craig on the cover. There seems to have been a deliberate attempt to mislead Bond f ans into watching this. The title sounds like a Bond movie (its very different to the original book title)and the title sequence is like something out of a Bond movie. Actually the title sequence for this is far better than those of the last few Bond movies.
Unfortunately after the titles it deteriorates quite rapidly. The early parts of the film are tedious and seem to take forever.The character played by Daniel Craig looks terrible. He is too old to wear trendy "fashion victim" type clothes. he looks far better in tailored clothing like the suits in Casino Royale or the beginning of Dream House.
Its difficult to comment on the story. Its basically a murder mystery that I didn't care if it was solved. The running time is too long and the film should have ended before it did. There are moments of great unpleasantness but very little positive to counteract them.
I don't have any interest in a sequel and I think Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara have far better things to do than make more of this trash.
