Spectre (2015)

new-spectre-poser

A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE. (IMDb)
A great long-take opening scene (starting with a masked Bond was brilliant) gives way to a mediocre story: A half-hazard clue-hopping mystery centered on a lame villain (Bond’s escapes from the chair and the building were way too easy for him) and a vague evil conspiracy (tying together the previous villains felt contrived). On the other hand, the action is excellent, the visuals are nice, and the politically rebellious antics of M, Q, and Moneypenny add some flavour to Bond’s solo missions.
6.5/10

  1. I agree; it’s a fine watch, but didn’t live up to Skyfall. I was also disappointed seeing it revert back to using so many tired Bond cliches, which the rest of the Craig-era films seemed so keen on avoiding.
