If SKYFALL was the film to make old-school Bond retro and acceptable rather than passe and anachronistic, then SPECTRE embraces it wholeheartedly. As entertaining as SKYFALL was (and SPECTRE is at times), it seems you reap what you sow.
Spectre's entire problem harkens back to that long-grieved desire about both having and eating cake. A film can be gritty and brutal or campy and silly. If a movie is all of those things, it leaves you shaken and not stirred.
Although often absorbing and on par with the quality of spectacle we've come to expect from our tuxedoed hero, SPECTRE proves its predecessor a tough act to follow and finds itself caught in its own tentacles.
Each 007 actor's fourth entry has been a bloated, sometimes wrongheaded collection of 'greatest hits' Bond moments, and it is with great regret we must report the phenomenon is alive and unwell in Spectre.
