We saw it on Friday evening. I loved it! I don't do movie reviews for a living, and we just go to be entertained, but I thought it was a perfect bookend.

I have seen it. Opening day.

In the movie are various tips of the hat to past Bond movies. The DB5 scenes are in their entirety a salute to Goldfinger. Other visual cues exist.

However, the entire franchise is f’d. Totally f’d. Inexorably f’d. Permanently f’d.

For all the historicity of a Broccoli helming the production, the current seat warmer does NOT understand the franchise. Evidently.

The entire point of every 007 movie is the same. Give us all a hero, a hero of renown, a hero of eternal relevance. This movie failed so to do.

Wife and I both loved it! It might be my favorite of the Craig films. It’s almost 3 hours long but never felt slow. The whole “female Bond” thing is totally overblown IMO. She’s not a big part of the film and James directs the plot completely. Craig’s 5 film arc is really a nice bit of storytelling.

Trailer seems to have sone nice action scenes. I’ll probably watch it when free on HBO or something.

Here’s the thing. Bond is an icon to me. A character I can dream about being, faults and all. Someone i can identify with. Sight unseen, I'm pretty sure i’m not going to be identifying with the new Bond.

Btw, even as an elite superspy, isn’t it better to be some what of a grey man? In most situations, would the new bond stand out when not wanted, pragmatically speaking? Outside of Africa, how many operating spies are big black intimidating women? In a mostly Caucasian or Asian world, wouldn’t she be a little conspicuous?

I very much agree that a woman becoming the "new 007" is a very minor plot contrivance. The film even backpedals it but I won't say more as this isn't a spoiler thread. At the end of the credits appears "James Bond Will Return" -- as he always has, in various incarnations. Yes, the actor who takes over will have huge shoes to fill, but look at how many actors have already played James Bond. And Superman, Batman, Spiderman, etc.

I remember the skepticism that greeted the announcement of Craig being cast, and he blew everyone away in his Bond origin story Casino Royale. I think what will happen is that the next Bond movie will simply reset the clock, with a new Bond, M, Q, Moneypenny, etc. The female 007 in No Time to Die will be nowhere to be seen.

Finally, to me, the whole "spy" thing is irrelevant. James Bond has never been a spy or secret agent in terms of performing espionage. He's been an international policeman. (Which is how Dr. No contemptuously referred to Bond in the first ever Bond flick.)

Overall? Enjoyable.
Flaws? Yes, but it's just a movie.

Bond heads off to battle with a P226 in his hand and a bunny in his suspenders.
Excellent cinematography, lots of visual nods to the earlier films.


Less is more.
