Movie Review: Spectre

James-Bond-film-Spectre-of-Daniel-Craig A long and beautiful tracking shot welcomes back to the screen James Bond with vigor and excitement. Our agent is in Mexico City on the Day of the Dead, an event offering suspense and spectacle as a chase leads Bond to a crowded plaza and a confrontation on a helicopter.

It’s a stirring start to a film following the acclaimed Skyfall, meeting anticipation with exhilaration. The previous entry was a most worthy one in the enduring franchise and arguably the most visually compelling and just as emotionally focused as Craig’s inaugural foray Casino Royale. Spectre enlists again director Sam Mendes and his group of writers (John Logan, Neal Purvis, Robert Wade from Skyfall and now Jez Butterworth) as they venture into the Bond literature to unearth a familiar foe. This the process, though, they also bring back camp, cliché, and convenience.
