Goodbye Mr. Bond!
I think I had read this was Daniel Craig’s last film as 007 but I had forgotten it.
Midway through I thought, this is a 4-star movie. Classic Bond. Car chases (with the gadgets!), the girl, the spy doing his thing. Very entertaining.
Then it got super long, like very long. I was about to drop it and continue the next day. I guess it’s somewhat interesting to see this more human, emotional side of 007. Still, I don’t know… I didn’t like the end. But how could’ve you done it differently? I guess dying for love it’s better than just saving the country or killing the villain. Which in this movie has a very strange role. Almost no appearance and not scary. Not super groundbreaking either, just steal government secrets to sell them for profit (?).
I expected way more from the gorgeous Moneypenny or the stunning Cuban spy, a breath of fresh air. Sadly only for 10 minutes, I had really hoped she would stick around. No joy…
I got a bittersweet taste after seeing it. It’s a must if you’ve been following the saga, especially with Daniel Craig.
