Starring: Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Christoph Waltz
Directed by: Sam Mendes
So today I went to the mall to check out the latest 007 film, “Spectre”.
Plot/Synopsis: A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia, the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE. Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh, the new head of the Centre of National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6 led by M. Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny and Q to help him seek out Madeleine Swann, the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White, who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of the assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot. As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks.
Media is trashing the new Bond film like mad. All the so-called professional critics giving the film negative reviews all over but I don’t listen to other critics. I just watch a movie and give it my own opinion. Following popular opinion is boring to me. If everyone likes a certain film and if I don’t like it, I won’t be afraid to say it. If everyone hates a certain film and if I like it, I won’t be afraid to say it.
Don’t listen to the negative critics out there. Just go out and see it ’cause the film was that damn good. I thought it was WAY better than “Skyfall” and I thought “Spectre” topped that film for sure. I was real impressed with “Spectre”. I thought the writing was really good and Sam Mendes did an interesting take on his version of SPECTRE the underground terrorist group. I thought Christoph Waltz killed it as Blofeld the SPECTRE leader & boss.
This film had a lot of action, of course. The action scenes were more fun in this movie than “Skyfall”. I thought Dave Bautista’s character, Mr. Hinx was a pretty badass villain. He’s probably one of the best 007 villains of all time, in my opinion. Bautista did a great job playing him even though the character said one line, the character didn’t say much in the movie at all but he just walked around looking like a tough guy. Bond and Mr. Hinx had a pretty intense fight scene together on a train.
I’m also reading a lot of negative critics toward the Bond girls. Media trashing the Bond girls as well. Are they serious? I thought Dr. Madeline Swann who was the blond girl in the movie was freakin’ gorgeous and hot. Plus, Monica Bellucci *drool*. Monica maybe around 50 years old but she’s still a pretty hot MILF. Once again don’t listen to the critics. They wanna say how he’s a raging “misogynist” but I don’t see how. Daniel Craig himself may have said that Bond was a raging “misogynist” but even Craig himself is opinionated. Go back and watch the old Sean Connery and Roger Moore 007 flicks, you would see that Bond always cared for women. Bond definitely showed that in “Spectre” ’cause he was supposed to keep Dr. Swann alive and he ends up falling in love with her, of course so I think Daniel is full of it.
I thought this was a really great Bond film and this is gonna be the final Daniel Craig Bond film ’cause they are moving on with someone else in the next one. Daniel wants to be done with these movies and he wants to move on. I can’t blame him ’cause he’s been on this franchise for years now and he’s probably sick of it.
Score for “Spectre” = **** 4 stars as in “Excellent”.
