The Latest in the James Bond franchise defiantly wasn’t the best with its drawn out plot, but most certainly was not the worst of the Daniel Craig regime.
Any else seen it ?
What are your thoughts?December 15, 2015 at 3:42 am #26934LoreSpectator
I saw it a month ago. For me, spectre was a bit disapointing. I liked music and photography and some of the action scenes were pretty exciting (first 10 minutes -Mexico in the Dia de los Muertos- were the best of the movie by far for me), but lots of flaws in the script and poor excuses for the “love” scenes. It is also true I had high expectations coming from the other Craig Bond movies.
Just a week before spectre I watched the last MI, and I was surprised of how good the action scenes and the storyline was for a MI movie. And I got even more surprised to realized I enjoyed that one way more than spectre.
Hehehe sorry for the long reply :SDecember 15, 2015 at 12:13 pm #26938MargotSpectator
I saw it as soon as it came out and I give it a 7/10. The action was really good as well as the 00q interactions, the plot wasn’t overly complicated and the way they linked back to other 007 movies was done really well, but I didn’t like the way some of the female characters were treated. Which was probably to be expected considering it’s a Bond movie but still, meh..December 15, 2015 at 8:21 pm #26941AnonymousInactive
I too was disappointed. And, I’ve always been a Bond fan. The opening Day of the Dead scene was reminiscent of another Bond movie, can’t recall which it was at this moment. But, I believe it had used a Mardi Gras parade. The running through the parade thing has been done so many times, anyway. Craig looked tired, as though he were going through the motions. I felt the script…even for a Bond movie…was just SO poorly written. Every cliche in the book and then some. And again, I’m aware that we expect cliche from Bond, but this just went way over the top. Such a shame too as they had a TRULY stellar cast. They didn’t begin to make use of any of the incredible actors’ talents.December 16, 2015 at 12:43 am #26942MargotSpectator
It’s a bit disappointing as Skyfall was excellent (at least in my opinion). I, too, felt that some of the clichés were just a bit too much—namely the “love making” scenes and how rushed Bond and Swann’s relationship seemed to be. I don’t know if it’s just because I’m a sex repulsed ace, but I found some of those former scenes borderline painful to sit through and watch. I’m aware they do it to appease the heterosexual male aspect of the audience, but…god…we’re not all hetero males, think of the rest of us for once.December 16, 2015 at 2:12 am #26943LoreSpectator
Well, I agree cliches were too much. For me the love/sex scenes were just poor scripted. It seemed like they needed X number of them to appear and just rushed them into the plot with no sense whatsoever. Bond is bond, he is suppose to be a womaniser, but I spect him to be a seductor, to know the game. It was well picture in the previous Craig movies (as when he leaves the latin woman in casino royal in the room with the champagne because he already got the info he needed from her), but in here it was just poorly done.
Same with the action scenes, you get into a car accident in the snow with the biggest toughest guy ever and don’tmake sure he is death? We all new what was coming next…
