Haven’t you slept yesterday owing to a long tiring day? Cool.. if you fall asleep in the theatre for some time there is nothing to worry……you would not have missed much. Well, it is human to expect a surprise in a film of James Bond. Our mind is accustomed to wanting for more surprises, especially in flicks of James Bond. But dear fans..come to terms with this. Spectre has nothing surprising to offer to you.
Daniel Craig Daniel Wroughton Craig, born on 2nd March 1968, is >> Read More... has come again in suits (for the fourth time) and enacts the role of a British spy, in his mission of saving the world. Sam Mendes Samuel Alexander Mendes better known as Sam Mendes >> Read More... has directed Daniel Craig for the second time, and though Craig and he share a good chemistry, there seems to be some robotic nature in it.
You would have loved your previous James Bond characters, right? You would have been fascinated by some scenes right? Well, Spectre is a blend of all the ‘good’ elements of the previous James Bond stories. The car chases, hand-to-hand fights, hot Bond ladies….they are all there in this film. But again, they are all stuffed in this flick.
What is the implication of Spectre? Well, this flick says something in the lines that we have not seen in the previous stories. It tells us of a Spectre that we have not known before.
There are rumours going rounds that this may be the last Craig’s film. If it is true, I just wish him to act in another film so that he leaves on a satisfactory note.
1. The cinematography of Hoyte van Hoytema is spell-binding in some sequences. The beauty of Morocco, London and Mexico are presented in this film with all its splendor.
2. The action scenes are thrilling only in a few segments.
What’s not there?
1. Yes, you have guessed it right. The film is nostalgic sometimes.
2. The introductory scene is shot quite well.
3. The first half is quite dragging. You can leisurely eat your snacks at that time!
4. With a long duration, you will surely expect some weight in the movie. But this flick only does it in bits and pieces.
5. The heart-pounding moments in this flick are very few.
Daniel Craig does what is required of him, but he could have been better more exploited, Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann has an aura in her which makes her the perfect fit for the Bond woman. But again, her onscreen chemistry with Bond is poor. Monica Belluci, as we know, is the oldest Bond girl, but pitiably she only makes a brief appearance in the film. However, she still looks gorgeous as ever. Ben Whishaw Ben Whishaw is a versatile English actor. He was b >> Read More... has done a neat job in this flick. seems to have been wasted in this flick. , Now you would be wondering about the villain right? Well, Christopher Waltz knocks down all your expectations. In fact, he had acted well in a couple of his earlier flicks, right? Where is all the gusto needed for a Bond villain?
Don’t go with expectations for this Bond flick. You will only return disappointed.
