“Better than QoS”
Before I talk about what I didn’t like about Spectre, let’s talk a bit about the positive stuff. The acting performances are fantastic! The whole cast did a terrific job and Daniel Craig shows us once again why he’s one of the best James Bond. The score is fantastic like always! The action sequences are great! Everything looks mesmerizing. This is one of the best shot bond films ever thanks to DiP Hoyte van Hoytema (Her, Interstellar, The Fighter).
Alright, now the stuff I didn’t like – I thought the story was a bit flat. The plot felt sloppy and the way it was told was all over the place. It wasn’t smooth storytelling. The pacing was off. The other disappointment I had was how some of the characters were introduced or utilized. With such a great cast, there was lots of unused potential, an example of this would be Christoph Waltz. The character development felt too rushed in my opinion.
Overall, I did not hate Spectre. It’s certainly not better than Casino Royale and Skyfall but its decent enough to see it in the theatre, especially if your a big James Bond fan.
Rating – ★★★
