From mid-air action, street racing to high speed boat chase, Spectre delivers what fans want but the script fails to meet the standards of its immediate predecessor, Skyfall. Spectre is superficially fantastic and dreamy making it slightly immature for the modern audience however, the spectacular destruction of buildings and high-tech cars is visually accelerating.
After receiving a message from beyond the grave, agent 007 sets on a dangerous journey to uncover a sinister organisation and the secret behind Spectre and L'American. In the meantime, M struggles to keep 00 sector alive and functioning.
It is a mediocre addition to the Bond franchise but is undeniably fun. Although this cannot be counted as his best Bond performance, Daniel Craig has proved once again that he is a talented actor and probably the best Bond ever.
Spectre boasts the cast of the oldest Bond girl so far. Belluci plays the widow of an assasin who has a short but steamy encounter with Bond. Also, the film portrays strong women who are intelligent, sexy, good with guns and can outwit even the devilishly charming Bond.
The theme song 'Writings on the wall' by Sam Smith has failed to impress especially after Adele's record breaking 'Skyfall' theme which is popular till date. Smith revealed in an interview that he wrote the lyrics to this song in 20 minutes. As impressive as that is may be, a James Bond title song requires more input. Also, the music to the song is slightly depressing which is quite typical of Smith but probably not the best way to go for a James Bond film.
Although not the best Bond movie, Spectre is a brilliant film on its own and a definite must watch.
