Still a great Bond Movie. Ties up CR, QOS, SF...

Try not to compare between them 😎😎.
If you do, it might (just) leave you with the ambivalent experience.

The Aston Martin DB10 in it is awesome

The song is written and performed by Sam Smith - its not bad kind of grows on you - and Sam reportedly said it was hard to sing. There's a cover performed by a young English female student which is better than the original presented here.

Ironically, of all espionage films released this year, this one may be ranked the lowest.

True - its better than Skyfall but kind of bland - I'd rather watch 'Spy' with Melissa McCarthy anytime.

No there's another one and she is of schooling-age - but this one is better obviously as the vocal power is there.
Yes - more for a female voice - if only the producers had the sense to realize this before choosing Sam's vocal - i read it was a first take and they used it just like that!

Sam Smith's falsettos kinda ruined the song to me, I know he's good at it and it's his trademark, but the song would sound a lot better if he toned down the falsetto a bit

Watched in cinema both Skyfall and Spectre. Enjoyed Skyfall much more.

Loved the scene where Craig interrogate the poor creature in L'Americana.

Nuuuuu it will tarnish his legacy when bond 25 flop after 2 successful bonds

I rather campbell being known making the 2 best bond in modern era goldeneye and casino royale reboot than flop in 3rd outing

Next bond let others 2 try their luck topping these 2 giants in modern era laugh.gif rclxms.gif

Finally got to watch! I've seen all 24x 007 movies since Dr No. Here's what I think:
**BIT OF SPOILERS**

PLUS
+Craig is still a good Bond, I can believe him as an assassin (compared to Brosnan)
+The Mexican scenes are AWESOME - non-stop tracking, action and helicopter
+The various countries he visited are nice to see - snow, mountain, desert, cities
+The secret meeting scene does kind feel menacing
+Nice attempt tying up the stories from previous Craig stories
+Plenty of nice easter-eggs for longtime Bond fans (The costumes, the henchmen, the white cat, snow, the Bulldog, the car tricks, the Lair in middle of nowhere etc etc)

MINUS
-Plot is weak and slow
-Romance? Oh please...
-Leading Bond girl - sorry nobody beats Vesper Lynd... period
-Never felt that danger or excitement of previous Bond movies
-All supporting characters (M -old and new, Q, Moneypenny) including villains are not given interesting things to do
-Theme song => Not memorable (Sorry Sam Smith...)

Not the worst Bond mind you, I saw worse ones during Moore's tenure.

If I were to rank in terms of Craig's Bond movies:
1. Casino Royale - so much to like: Vesper, the poker scenes, the parkour, the ending, the torture (painful), the airport bomb plot...
2. Skyfall - admittedly artsy-fartsy, but far better plot (than Spectre), best villain I've ever seen, M is damn good, the cinematography is really really good.
3. TIE: Quantum and SPECTRE - QoS was poorly reviewed at the time, but I still think it is way better than some 007 movies. SPECTRE is a mixed bag of both good and bad.

OVERALL: 2.5 of 5 ~ Technically solid, but uninspiring and was a bit disappointed.
