The latest James Bond movie has been out for over a month and making lots of money. I finally found the time to go an watch it and wanted to give a few thoughts on it.
While it is a good movie I am not sure it is as great as everyone else seems to think it is.
First it is too long for a Bond movie. I know they were trying to make this more of a grounded realistic Bond movie with a plot but at 2 hours 20 minutes it was a bit long.
Second they made Javier Bardem’s villain and Judi Dench’s M well rounded characters but Bond felt kind of flat. I was never sure who or what he actually cared about.
Third for trying to make it more realistic Bond seemed a bit too indestructible.
Guess what I am saying there are certain expectations you have when you see a Bond movie and that is that there will be lots of action and cool gadgets. The action was ok and there were no cool gadgets. Maybe I would have liked this movie better if it wasn’t a Bond movie.
Overall 3 out of 5 stars. Good but not great.
