I'm gonna second that review - although I don't think I enjoyed it as much as you dude, all your points are spot on.
I do have to voice a few gripes with it, though. The plot is riddled with holes, which kind of disrupted the attempts at depth and realism. I don't think it quite managed to convey the importance of M and Bond's relationship like it wanted to, though it gets points for trying.
It had great action sequences, low key but very striking. It was quite funny at points, and I think Bardem's villain is great. He really brings the character's derangement out in all these little tics and movements, brilliantly done. The bloodlessness is a problem though. I know there's certification issues but sharks used to routinely eat people in Bond films, it seems like they could go a little further. Although perhaps they were trying to make way for what I believe was the Bond franchise's first f-bomb?
If nothing else this was really refreshing for a Bond film. I'm interested to see if all the impressionistic touches Mendes uses in this film carry over - after fifty years it might be an interesting avenue to explore, allowing each director a bit more stylistic/creative freedom with each film.
