Final entry in the Daniel Craig films for the James Bond franchise is big, stylish, and mostly fun. It pays respect to his interpretation of the character and gives him a heroic conclusion. Cary Fukunaga is a surprisingly good fit for the style and elements we expect from a James Bond film.
The returning cast members like Ben Whishaw as Q and Naomie Harris as Moneypenny are great. Newcomers such as Lashana Lynch, Ana de Armas, and Billy Magnussan all do a good job. Ana de Armas especially is a delight as a perky yet deadly CIA ally of Bond. The action scenes are incredibly well staged and the direction is confident with no shakey-cam.
The main bad guy played by Rami Malek is a letdown unfortunately. His evil plan is actually pretty diabolical and unique as far as Bond villains go. Rami …

I love Bond. Have always done, ever since I was seven and watched Goldfinger on Channel Ten for the first time. I'll never forget how that film made me maddeningly desperate to remain in that world of suave sophistication, thrilling action, and exotic locations. It just ignited something within me; a spark that I've coaxed into an inferno of discipleship for one of the longest and most enduring franchises in film history.
But also as a lover of the craft of film itself, I can't really say there's ever been a perfect, five star Bond movie. I think one day there will be, but No Time to Die is not it. But who cares?

A sendoff is always hard to pull off but Daniel Craig manages to give Bond the right kind of end after a long series - one that has emotional heft but still reminds you that this is still 007 - whether it's a signature drink, car or that wit. I remember back when Craig was first announced as the next Bond how much people complained, but I think his tenure has been one of the better and once again whoever comes next will have some big shoes to fill.
Bond has never been good with relationships, however, and our opening sees him once again trying to settle down, this time with Madeleine (Léa Seydoux), who only asks that he big his past goodbye by visiting the grave of Vesper Lynd. But, of course, this small gesture turns into a fight for survival along with another possible betrayal and …

Well folks, after four years of its announcement and two years of waiting, the latest Bond movie is finally here, but the journey of its arrival is long, chaotic, and excruciating. Let’s rewind the clocks back a bit, back when film director Danny Boyle was supposed to direct this movie, something I was extremely excited for, since he already dipped his toes in a James Bond like project when he directed a skit for 2012 Olympics performance of "James Bond and The Queen", but he departed from the project a few months later over creative differences with the studio. Of course, the onset problems were all public knowledge when it was spread over media. And let’s not forget the classic of misfortunes, which is the release dates constantly moving around more times than Bond’s journey to …
