Here’s Anita take on the latest Bond film. It’s all sound and no substance.
Then there’d be super car chases, in copter fight/salvage/crash; aircraft – SUV faceoff/crash, state-of-the-art set-ups/collapses and long drawn somber dialogues/scenes and no point of convergence.
Perhaps the extensive scenes cut were there to help with the counterpoise of the specter… er …Spectre.
A retrospective linking previous Bond assignments/villains, Bond is on a mission to bring down Specter, their one unifying body that spreads terror the world over, with the intention of having eyes planted
across all nations to gather limitless unquestioned intelligence.
Well watch it for select scenes if you really must (note for the Indian audience). This Bond film has Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Monica Bellucci, Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris and Dave Bautista starring in it. It’s produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and directed by Sam Mendes.
I was neither shaken nor stirred. In fact, I was tired by the end of the movie. No surprises Bond doesn’t want another mission (note for non-Indian audiences, as well).
