Review : Spectre

spectre-poster-black-white

“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.”

Straight of the top, this movie is BEAUTIFUL, and i mean absolutely gorgeous and stunning. The entire team here does an amazing job, from cinematography, to set design, to production design, to all of it. This movie also starts with ones of the best if not the best bond intro scene, starting especially with a great tracking shot through a day of the dead parade. Spectre really and thoroughly does bring the story of both these new series of Bond movies, and the character they have been building come full circle since Casino Royale. We are now back in the vein of the old James Bond movies, and the character himself has now become those bonds, and a bit less of the gritty, rough and tumble Bond we have had so far. There are some draw backs however. The return of the Bond of old is great and all, but i definitely think that a lot of that will be lost on the general audience. The story also seems to wander at times, and even though it is going forward, it still seemed a bit unfocused. Lea Seydoux, is an vision as always, and the rest of the Bond team is also really good here. All in all, Spectre is probably the 3rd best Bond movie, of these new 4 movies, but thats not to say it isn’t really good, and that it’s not worth seeing especially in cinemas.

Review Score : 8 out of 10
