James Bond turns hardened film critics into suckers. At the very least, he turns the folk here at the ReelGood offices into suckers. We can probably count the really top notch James Bond films on one or two fingers and the really awful James Bond films on a gazillion fingers and yet without fail, every time a new Bond film is released, we get weak at the knees.
Spectre is the new Bond film and we’re getting weak at the knees over it, despite Daniel Craig never having really done it for us and Christoph Waltz looking like he’s playing, surprise surprise, every Christoph Waltz character ever. But then there’s Monica Bellucci, and there’s Dave Bautista, and there’s Léa Seydoux, and there’s the Bond theme, and there’s that bit from the last trailer where the helicopter does a spinny thing. We’re in. Count us in. Da da da DAAAAAA! (Bond theme).
“In the aftermath of the bombing of MI6 by Raoul Silva, a cryptic message sets in motion events that will see James Bond come face-to-face with a sinister organisation known as SPECTRE. As M continues fighting political pressures that threaten the future of MI6, Bond is drawn into a confrontation with an enemy who knows him better than he knows himself and holds a dangerous secret that will force Bond to question the value of everything he has fought to protect.“
Spectre stars Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Léa Seydoux, Monica Bellucci, Dave Bautista and Ralph Fiennes and is set for release in November, 2015.
