Bond review, the quick version. This is not a great movie. The pacing was slow. Like the director decided it needed to be stately, so he made oddly long scenes. They began a few seconds early, and lasted a few seconds too long.
Also, all of the bits relating to computers were laughably bad. Painfully bad. Atrociously bad.
The action scenes were generally good. The sort of contrived, large set pieces we expect from Bond.
Mostly what bothered me was the plot. The new set of Bond movies was supposed to modernize the franchise, but this one spends a lot of time talking about the past, and navel-gazing.
Still, it was Bond, and it was entertaining.
