Connery's likeness kills it for me on this one. Close, but the face of the main character for me has to be spot on in any poster unless purposely stylized. Looking forward to all the rest in the series.

I don't think ANY of the original posters from the initial campaign of this film (or other Connery Bonds) have ever been accused of fully being 'spot on' yet they are great:

Thought all dis commish fudge was supposed to be AMPs in the vein of Mondo just without any approvals needed. Dis fudge hardly seems to fit the bill.

I think the artist did a great job with this one. Not really sure how you can fight the face but if nitpicking I won’t argue. Seems pretty solid to me
