The producers have put $300 million into this Bond-stravaganza, so they need to feel like they're getting their money's worth. You probably will, too.
July 5, 2019
A strange kind of hybrid that isn't fully realistic, or unrealistic enough to be pure, vintage Bond.

Action-packed and witty: a classic British spy caper...
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

It's an old school Bond movie with some good action, some silly banter and beautiful women.

Spectre can certainly be enjoyed on its own, but it does do a good job of tying together all the pieces left behind in the previous three films. An entertaining trip into the world of 007, even if it isn't as good as its predecessor.

If Skyfall was the pinnacle of Craig's run as Bond, Spectre signals a slight downturn and a need for the series to break new ground and redefine who James Bond is for the next generation.

Spectre starts to run out of steam late, with the rousing start long a memory by the time the final scene arrives. Still, there is enough here to keep Bond fans satisfied.

Spectre is perhaps not as accessible to the average viewer, but it might be more rewarding as an entry in not just the franchise, but Daniel Craig's time in the role.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/10

Spectre has its up and down moments and never is quite sure about standing alone as an independent Bond story or being dismissed as a pit stop for 007-related flashbacks and reference bits ode to yesteryear's glory.

November 1, 2018
Mendes manages to turn a $300 million tentpole blockbuster into a personal character study, with more relevance to real world news events then any of the previous entries.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5

Daniel Craig's tenure as James Bond has seen Ian Fleming's iconic spy stripped back to basics and rebuilt from the ground-up over the course of four movies.

[Craig's] skillfully wrapped up and delivered [Spectre] at my feet just in time for Christmas. Sure, there might be a few too many layers of paper and way too much tape, but it's the gift I wanted regardless.

Regarding Bond's and apparently Craig's sense of ennui, and stated disdain for the work, it may be time to bring in fresh blood and passion and say goodbye to our gritty anti-hero/hero. Let the casting games begin.

There will be another 007; there is too much left in this pot of gold franchise for it to be otherwise. In the meantime, enjoy this Craig-fuelled thrill ride.

Spectre is not boring to watch. The evolving character of James Bond is interesting, and the series always offers us the pleasure of getting swept up in his global adventures. In this sense, the latest installment does what it is supposed to do.
November 8, 2017
A few moans aside, Spectre's action still shakes and stirs, leaving you loving its oak and leather, champagne - and dynamite.

Spectre is an elaborate justification for the relevance of the gun-toting, martini-drinking spy in a post-Snowden world.
August 16, 2017
Give us traditional wink-wink Bond or give us the new seriousness. This hybrid version feels neither shaken nor stirred.
August 14, 2017
Spending a couple of hours with impeccably dressed (even for the Bond franchise), amazingly talented, and utterly gorgeous stars doing stagy acting is a fine way to pass an evening.
October 28, 2016
Fifty years later, it seems like Bond is now playing catch up with the superhero movies.
