My thoughts on DC as 007:

Other than the fact that his hair is not dark Daniel Craig is Ian Fleming's James Bond 007, as we only saw in the very early films (Dr No and FRWL in particular). He really plays the character properly, with his quirky humour, dark nature and real coolness which is not overplayed as with Moore or Brosnan and not underplayed
as with Dalton.

What surprised me most about seeing him play 007 for the first time was the way he moves superbly. He moves like Connery did in his early days.

As soon as I see Daniel Craig wit his suit/DJ jacket off in a shoulder holster I think the ultimate light will ping on in my head with a "Bingo! That's as James Bond as it gets!". In fact this is something I am hoping to see in Quantum of Solace.
