CRAIG BOND FOUR: SPECTRE
|year: 2015 cast: Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Léa Seydoux director: Sam Mendes|
|That's a Bingo|
What actually occurs is an old school, Roger Moore style handing-off of nail biting action sequences that don't cease... for very long. When they do, the main "Bond Girl", who has resilient self defense all her own, provides effective chemistry leading to more of what the movie actually is: adrenaline-pumping adventure (including a few gadgets that actually work and a monstrous hit man) over twisty espionage, and not so mindless. In fact, a lot of what's unexplained and/or difficult to understand during the talky 11th hour doesn't really matter. And if that amounts to what's already being described as 007 Eye Candy by certain disgruntled fans, oh well. The only saccharine element is the ponderous theme song that follows (and is truly saved by) one of the coolest pre-opening-credit sequences to date, of any Bond vehicle.
