Mendes’ Spectre falls short of Skyfall, however still pleases with stunning action sequences.
The series has evolved with the times, featuring audacious females and a surveillance themed plot.
The opening perfectly captured Bond’s style, ruthlessness and allure, with decent music by Sam Smith.
The stunts were phenomenal, traversing Helicopter, Plane, and Aston Martin, while the international locations were a visual feast.
Performances, however, were underwhelming; Craig’s Bond seems worn-out, Waltz lacked Bardem’s perverse menace, Fiennes is no Dench, and Seydoux, although vivacious, faded out over time.
Ultimately, Spectre is a riveting, fast-paced action movie, lacking strong performances or emotional complexity.
