An absolute let-down after Skyfall. The plot didn't make a lick of sense, and the romance was ridiculous.
Exciting, beautifully shot and entertaining for the most part, but it fails to reach it's full potential because of a wasted villain, forced romance and messy plot which culminates in a terrible third act.
I was surprised of the 73% rating but then, I voted 8 points. I think it's fair.
The movie is not bad but good, but not particularly great. The opening scene alone would be worth 10 points. It was awesome. Was it done in one shot? Looks like it, at least I want to think that, and it was really good.
One could argue about the plot being too shallow, but then again it's a James Bond movie, so what do you expect? Of course there are some plot holes, but that didn't upset me at all. What upset me was the untimed and forced "fun" moments. The movie had several really intense moments with great shots, camera movements and silence—Oh the silence!—but the they destroyed them with catch phrases and stupid comments. (Referring to "Oh, Shit" on the train and "What do we do now?" right after) There were several more stupid moments and they did not suit the movie. Without them, it would be 10/10!
Ok, I have seen better James Bond movies!
Best of the Daniel Craig James Bond films, a must see! Spectre is an entertaining adventure! Hope Daniel Craig make one more bond movie, but if this is the end there's a good ending for him.
Not a bad outing...until someone decided to let a 12-year-old boy write the last hour of it. Typical of pre-Craig efforts, but a disappointment at this stage. And if you're going to write a 2.5 hour movie, make sure that you have 2.5 hours' worth of plot.
