A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.
The Die Another Day of the Daniel Craig Bond era… With that being said hopefully a few can understand what I mean by this. By no means is it a comparison of the two movies, but more of summary of what Spectre is to the James Bond world.
It’s a fun, silly and at times dramatic Bond film. Spectre may have one of the most talented supporting casts for a Bond film with Christoph Waltz (Blofeld), Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Moneypenny) and Ben Whishaw (Q). Also a casting addition I enjoyed while understandably others may have not is Dave Bautista as the intimidating Mr. Hinx.
Spectre starts off fast with Bond on a quest to fulfill the (spoiler alert) recently deceased M (Judi Dench) dying wish to kill a man. Of course this isn’t an official mission for Bond so it entails him going rogue in a way and butting heads with the newly appointed M. Spectre takes us to some eye opening places with some worthy cinematography. The action scenes are fun but we’ve seen many of them before. One memorable scene that I’ll take away from this movie is the fight on the train. One of the best Bond fist fights in years!
