Looking forward to seeing it. Was going to go with Shack, but he's broke due to car problems. Don't think I can convince the wife to go, but we'll see.
The thing about Connery was that he was 90% class and 10% bar fight. He had grit. He had a mean streak. In the earlier movies Connery could sleep with a woman and then kill her and not bat an eye. It reminded you that they guy was a paid killer. The later permutations seemed to abandon that - probably in an attempt to make it more family oriented.
