Spectre is the 24th James Bond movie released under Metro Goldwyn Mayer & Columbia and all I can say is the movie’s entertaining, engaging and interesting. For that two hours and twenty-eight minutes (148 mins.), there hasn’t been a moment of boredom since each scenes are well crafted, defined and properly edited. The careful attention to details including the set, costume, music/score are commendable even the accurate choreography of the action scenes/stunts and the beautifully finished cinematography. I love the realistic approach to the effects though he’s getting & using lesser high-technology gadget. Though action sequences aren’t that enough but it always put me at the edge of my seat the whole time.
As always, Daniel Craig proved himself to be one of the best James Bond with his suave and classy moves and his effective portrayal, I’m really seeing him as James Bond already.. The villains of this film provided an impressive performance. Dave Bautista’s character gave Bond a hard time and Christoph Waltz delivered a compelling performance as a psychopathic head of the organization but it was a waste when they didn’t utilize Waltz to its full potential as the main villain, he could’ve been a convincing and outstanding antagonist. The supporting characters, including Ralph Fienes, added more spice to the flick.
All in all, I will give the movie Spectre 3.7 out of 5 stars for being an entertaining movie however, this is inferior to its predecessor Skyfall and weaker compared to other Bond films and the direction it went into telling the story is very familiar to Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation.
