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.
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.
[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.
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.
