James Bond descends into mystery as he tries to stop a mysterious organization from eliminating a country’s most valuable resource. All the while, he still tries to seek revenge over the death of his love. (IMDb)
The variety of gorgeously-shot exotic locales aren’t enough to spice up the repetitive action-movie plot (get a lead, follow it with a stolen vehicle, kill the guy) with yet another conveniently good-looking female accomplice and stereotypical foreign villain. Bond’s charm is replaced by a distinct coldness this time around, but as it’s only unpacked once (see the oil-covered girl in the hotel scene) it comes off as dry and dull more than deep. Consequently, it’s an insufficient substitution.
6.5/10 (Alright)
