A Review of Spectre (2015)

“You are a kite dancing in a hurricane, Mr Bond”

The latest Bond film may be Daniel Craig’s last; is it a good send off for him?

The opening scene is a wonderful extended look at a carnival in Mexico City on the Day of the Dead. The cinematography throughout the movie is beautiful. Thomas Newman’s soundtrack is the perfect accompaniment.

The action is plentiful and well thought out. Some scenes are quite tense. The comedy however seemed so simple most of the jokes barely deserved a smile (there were some laugh out loud moments.)

The story seemed to act as a final part to an overarching story that started with Casino Royale. This overarching story was oblivious to the viewers of course until this film, hence references to the previous movies feel ham-fisted.

If Skyfall was the personal, more drama oriented Bond film by Sam Mendes then Spectre is his attempt at a more classic 007 style. Not the best Bond film but a strong action film non-the-less, with not a single weak performance.

Overall Rating: 7.6/10
