New Bond Movie ‘Spectre’ Tries to Tie Up Loose Ends
As the credits rolled on 'Spectre', the forth movie starring Daniel Craig as James Bond, I couldn't help but think it was the last time we'll see him as 007. The film seemed to try very hard to tie up loose ends. It made reference to the other Bond films starring Craig, most noticeably 'Casino Royale' and 'Skyfall'. If this is the end for Craig, it saddens me on two fronts. One, he is the best Bond we've ever had. But two, he deserved a better farewell.
'Spectre' isn't a bad movie. It's a great action packed thriller with gorgeous scenery and locations. Daniel Craig as James Bond is once again fantastic. It's the story that is the biggest problem with this movie. Not to mention the villain. Without getting into spoilers, we find out that the secret group known as Spectre, has been behind all the villains in the previous 3 Bond movies. Convenient, no? Like I said, they really tried to tie things together. We eventually get to meet the villain played by actor Christoph Waltz. He is a fantastic actor and I was excited to see what he would do with the role. He is literally in the movie for three scenes. That's it. His role is completely wasted.
Despite some negatives, I still recommend seeing 'Spectre', especially if you've seen the other Bond films starring Daniel Craig. As far as it's place in Bond history? I'd rank it ahead of only 'Quantum of Solace', and behind 'Casino Royale' and 'Skyfall'.
