Synopsis: Directed by Sam Mendes, Spectre is the latest installment in the 007 films. In Spectre, James Bond (Daniel Craig) is doing unofficial work without the approval of his superiors. When Bond comes across a villain that has a big part in his past, he is forced to look for help where he never would have thought to look: his former foe. To take down this villain Bond must shed light on his obscure past.
Spectre was a fantastic movie with beautiful cinematography and a great story. In Daniel Craig’s alleged last movie playing the British special agent, Bond comes face to face with the man behind every scheme. Craig has done a great job as Bond before and continues to do so in this film. He does a great job of keeping the audience entertained with his classy and no nonsense persona. We know a lot about the character, but his background is still mostly a mystery. We learn about his past in this film and it lightens up some major details. The villain in this movie is tightly connected to him, which makes this movie really interesting.
What is a Bond movie without a great villain? This movie has a good villain, but he is not given enough screen time and development to be great. Had this villain been given more time to develop, this movie would have been the best Bond film ever. The villain is enticing and enigmatic, but Blofeld (Christoph Waltz) is not on screen enough so he can’t be a truly great villain. His connection to Bond really keeps the audience interested in this villain. Bond is unaware of this man’s presence in his life, but he is constantly tormenting Bond. For a large portion of the film he is merely a silhouette and covered in shadows, which I think was a great way to show that we know as little about this man as Bond did.
This film was an overall great film. It had plenty of action, intrigue, romance, and some laughs. However, I don’t think this is Daniel Craig’s best bond film. Skyfall was better in my opinion, but this film is sure to be a classic. If this film would have developed the villain more and told us more about his motive, I think this movie would have been over the top. I give this film a 9 out of 10 rating and would recommend this to fans of the Bond films and anyone looking for a fun and exciting movie.
