DANIEL CRAIG AND LÉA SEYDOUX BOND IN 'NO TIME TO DIE'

Daniel Craig drives Léa Seydoux in NO TIME TO DIE Year: 2021 Rating: *1/2

Turns out, in a manner of speaking, after a failed attempt gave MGM the idea to remake CASINO ROYALE, Quentin Tarantino got his wish to make a James Bond flick since the pre-credit NO TIME TO DIE open has ingénue Léa Seydoux as a flashed-back little girl, witnessing a parent being murdered like the KILL BILL VOL.1 anime segment... 

By an assassin who dramatically chases her into the great wide-shot open INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS style (and later a young daughter's hidden away in a villa ala VOL. 2)... ironic since Christoph Waltz eventually returns as Blofeld, quickly...

And the new master villain harbors another irony as Rami Malek, during the peak of our own world's pandemic COVID era, created a deadly virus... 

Like Blofeld, he doesn't show up until about halfway through the dishonestly titled NO TIME TO DIE, which is more like a filler episode from a Bond streaming series than a motion picture on its own...

Daniel Craig in NO TIME TO DIE

Providing Daniel Craig the farewell he’s been whining about for years, slowly, the action scenes sporadic, lackluster and, like the messy, mish-mash of a practically non-existent plot, going absolutely anywhere in what's the blandest Bond feature featuring any Bond actor...

Not only feeling like Daniel Craig (surrounded by a barrage of younger agents) doesn't want to be there, but the movie itself doesn't really want or need him either, which is most likely intentional since, despite literally/ultimately going out with a bang, NO TIME TO DIE is more of the primadonna actor's overlong silent treatment... so we'll break up with him.
