Slow and boring, with a really weak twist.
Craig has certainly made the role his own at this point, and I really enjoyed Mendes' ability to tie the earlier entries in the reboot into the storyline. M, Q, and Moneypenny also get their chances to shine.
But it's like Sony thought that, riding on the success of Skyfall, they'd really put the pedal to the metal this time around and show all the copycats in town who the king of action thrillers is. With a reputed budget of $300 million and a running time of 2½ hrs, this is a perfect example of less being more at times. Both opening and finale are thrilling, and there's a terrific car chase and another excellent setpiece featuring a plane and a car - but really, if this had been trimmed by 20 minutes (and $50 million), I think the film would have been improved.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
