Spectre sadly doesn't top Skyfall as best Bond film ever
I must admit I was excited for this. It was in my top ten films to see this year. So I went this weekend and I thought it was good, but some parts did seem to drag. So let's take a look at the latest James Bond film, Spectre.
Spectre is about a shadowy organisation called Spectre whose leader Franz Oberhauser, basically the main cause of all the villains from the previous Bond films like Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace and Skyfall, Bond must defeat before he does anything more sinister. The villain is played really well by Christoph Waltz, who in my opinion isn't as creepy as Raul Silva from Skyfall, but I digress. There was another villain named Mr Hinx who sadly just wouldn't die. I mean this guy got shot, stabbed, he managed to survive while a car was burning and managed to get whacked in the face numerous occasions without getting knocked unconscious. I mean the guy wouldn't die. It was like he was indestructible, but he was great as well.
The opening scene is fantastic. I won't spoil anything for you but it'll make you go "how on earth did they manage to film that". It's pretty impressive I must say. Then the movie hits you with the famous titles and theme song, which always give me chills every time I hear it. The action is fantastic and there's two very cool chase scenes, but again I won't spoil them for you.
The theme song 'Writing's On The Wall' is probably one of the greatest themes a Bond film has seen since Adele's 'Skyfall', however the theme song and opening titles sadly don't help with the film's pacing. I enjoyed it, but it did drag just a tad. Nonetheless it was a good film. The action was great as was the theme song and opening titles, but the plot and pacing ruins it.
I would give this film a 2/10. Nah, that's a bit harsh, it is a Bond film after all. 3.5/10 will do. The action was great, but sadly the plot lets it down.
