Soul Less Dinosaur in the New Espionage age
I used to love Bond films… Back in the Days of Pierce Brosnan, bond was back and exciting again… I saw every one of those films and LOVED them… but things changed and Bond was rebooted.
Fine, no problem… Casino Royale was still good, but then they went hay wire, the sequels were not bond or Bourne enough… Quantum of solace sucked, I hated SkyFall (with its home alone rip-off ending) and this movie is even worse.
First of all, this movie and skyfall seem to like ripping off The Dark Knight. Skyfall had the villain gets captured by design plot (also seen in Avengers) this one has, female lead stuck to a building with bomb cliché. N
Next, the plot is similar to the Bond Parody Goldmember… Yes that’s right in 2002 Austin Powers made this same film and they did it better! Every cliché shown in that film is still being repeated in Bond films in 2015.
So Am I nit-picking a lot? Overly critical, maybe I am not the audience for this film. But then who is? I love spy espionage, counter intelligence films, Mission Impossible 4 and 5 were amazing, Kingsmen was marvellous, even Man from UNCLE was more charming than this…
This film is all kinds of dumb, one shot from bond and somehow an entire building in Mexico exploded. What happened? Was there a bomb? No explanation. A car chase scene between Bond and Hinx goes on for god-damn long time when nothing happens, they just drive around, bond can’t even lose his pursuer in ROME! It’s one of those cities with a lot of by lanes!
Where is bond getting all his money from? He is no longer employed at Mi-6.
Bond is being tortured and the moment there is an explosion in the room, his restrains snap free… WHY?
Bond shoots one gauge and suddenly the entire complex blows up sky high. This movie makes Last Action Hero’s clichés looks realistic. Last but not the least, bond is on a train eating/drinking when Hinks the henchman attacks him, was he patiently waiting till then? How did he find them? The train left hours ago, where was he all this time?
Terrible direction, god awful action scenes. Mr Craig looks bored as hell with the proceedings. The picture budget shot up to 300 to 350 Million and all we got was cliché ridden, plot less crap.
Rating : 5.5/10 . Close to being the WORST bond film till date, probably on par or worse than On her majesty’s secret service.

that is true... casino royale as I mentioned, I liked it, but it was all downhill since then... my joy of seeing bond films is now gone... I look forward to more tom cruise mission impossible films now, he is the better bond!

Agreed! Tom Cruise is living up-to expectations in each of his movies.

Bond is back in Action!
Daniel Craig in and as James Bond 007, directed by Sam Mendes. This time it's personal! The story of Bond and his brother. The continuation from Skyfall.
Starts in Mexico, where the terrific Helicopter scene has been shown. Truly amazing, as I've never seen like this before on screen. From where Bond gets the signal of the main villain, which actually is his brother. His entry scene is very unusual. Dave Bautista is a surprise package. The chasing in snow is off to mark. Basically, besides story, which is a good point, we only want to see more and more action sequences. Thus, Spectre is able to provide it. So, fans will surely like this.
Cinematography is a major plus point. But, the first thing which can affect you is the original music by Thomas Newman. Every single bit of every situation can able to give you the thrill which is required in a thriller. Kudos to him!
Daniel's last appearance as Bond is remarkable. He's better than what he's in Skyfall. Christoph Waltz is impressive as a villain. Ben is always a fun to watch as Q. The new Bond girl, L

SPECTRE
I really thought that this was going to be bad but I actually enjoyed this, people be giving this 2, and 1.5, what? This is great, it is't as great as CASINO ROYAL, or SKYFALL, but still great fun. Set peaces, thrilling action, classic score, and James Bond charm are all there. But this film dose have some issues. First the I felt like it was a first draft script, or it was just rushed and several things went wrong, but to me the pacing wasn't the best. But probably my biggest problem is the characters, especially Léa Seydoux character, who (when introduced) was shaping up to be a great character for me. But then the third act came along, and she had barley any dialogue, and became the damsel in distress. It's quite sad as the characters could have been more than just that and because Léa Seydoux is a great actress, but who am I kidding, it's a James Bond flick!

Interesting Watch
Spectre is a large terrorist organisation run by somebody M asks Bond to investigate as her last dying wish. Bond reconnects with his childhood memories and is bought face to face with a very unexpected villain who has ties with his past and was actually puppeteering all his previous villains. As far as Bond movies go, it is not as fast paced and action packed but it is definitely worth watching even if you're not a Bond fan. Daniel Craig shines in the movie and as always, is extremely convincing. The opening scene in Mexico is absolutely fantastic and gets you on the edge of your seat.

Skyfall V Spectre was the theme, In my opinion Sky
Spectre is the latest 007 Bond offering. Not bad a movie. A bit disapapointing thou. Plot reasons is the reason for my disappointment. I personally enjoyed Skyfall beteter. Even the music at the beginning by Adel added to it. Although Sam Smith did justice to it, the music in this film, I still feel it wasn't enough.
The plot again was confusing. However it did come together eventually. heeheheh. Bond(Craig) is in Mexico City, trackie a guy down. Trouble ensues. M(Fiennes) is furious and tells Bond that "he is grounded". However Bond feels this is needed, so he hires the help of Moneypenny(Harris) and my baby Q(Winshaw). Q "pricks" him with a Microchip, so that M and everyone knows where Bond is gone to.

Let's be honest - Daniel Craig is no Henry Cavill.
