Any action movie can have guns, cars, action, babes, and a villain with an evil plot. The movie didn't have the James Bond theme by the way, the gun barrel sequence was at the end, Felix had two lines in the movie, there was little to no witty dialogue, the villain should have some sort of physical deformity or iconic symbol, gadgets and a Q are a necessity, there should be a Moneypenny, Bond needs to screw the Bond girl, and of course you have the terrible editing that ruined the car chase. Despite what you ears tell you, the Bond theme is there numerous times. And there was plenty of genuinely witty dialogue. But you know what they say: Wit rarely appeals to the witless. I forgot to reply to this. Of course he always kills people, but he does it with style. Only Bond can shoot a pipe and take down 5 guys with steam (as done in Casino Royale). And only James Bond can be sadistic enough to leave a guy in the middle of the desert with a tin of oil to drink. James Bond is a killer. Why would a killer go out of his way to kill with style? You do know that Bond didn't kill those people with the steam, right?
