Daniel Craig is great as Bond. I'm just not a Waltz fan. Spy + action + chivalry + justice. Looking fwd to seeing who will be re-branding Bond.

Spectre is the latest James Bond film, but unfortunately, it does not live up to the expectations. The story starts off with Daniel Craig killing the leader of the terrorist organization in an unauthorized mission in Mexico. In spite of being suspended soon after, he ventures alone to obtain more information on the organization, which leads to surprising amounts of information being unveiled. Touching on Bond’s family ties, the film tries to move in a slightly different path from its recent predecessors, but in vain. This is because the film comes off as boring, applying the same formula with nothing majorly new to offer. While the action scenes and car chases are still engaging to watch, the direction of the plot is weaker. By the end of the film, many viewers, including myself, perceive the film as average at best. This is why I would give it a rating of 3 stars. @Riveting_Reviews of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Daniel Craig is a poor excuse for James Bond. Sean Connery simply cannot be replaced by these undersized, sissy Nancy boys./////and the story really stunk.

I thought this movie was just ok. Skyfall was better imo.

An 'Average', star rated movie: I have seen better, James Bond, films in the past. Again, similar action-packed, rescue or 'save-the-world', flick! :) lol..... which comes with his many toys and gadgets... :) . I rather enjoyed the last Bond film prior to this one much better with that evil villain , Xavier Bardem :) (a very long but more exciting film). Spectre was not exactly boring but not really thrilling either... Anyways, all the best to your viewing on this one... I think Daniel Craig (is it?), needs to retire and put down his weapons for a change. Ho Hum? :) Thx.

Daniel Craig as James Bond, 007, is out to kick some serious ass.

though this might've carried as James Bond, it certainly wasn't Ian Fleming, a cross, rather, between Bond and Indiana Jones with some Stanley Donen, William Wyler, and Stanley Kubrick thrown in, not to mention some Michelangelo Antonioni, including a good deal of his existential tedium - poor cinematography, indifferent acting, and a plot line that was ultimately too long to put up with at a banal and unrelenting 2 hours and 20 minutes

Watched the second time the James Bond movie "Spectre" (2015). This was the fourth and the last time for Daniel Craig to play James Bond 007. I saw the movie in cinema two years ago, and re-watch it at home the blu-ray disc.

Pros: good actions, new weapons, scenes from various countries; Daniel Craig is one of the best bonds.
Cons: main bond girl Léa Hélène Seydoux is not beautiful enough; Monica Bellucci is 52 years old already; Naomie Harris (Miss MoneyPenny) is strictly not a bond girl but Bond's supervisor's secretary. Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Christoph Waltz) hated James Bond so much and he had so many chances to kill Bond, make him blind or lame, but Blofeld wanted to torture Bond without hurting him first. This is a childish plot.
Overall: put down your analytical mind, just enjoy the movie without questioning too many things, then the movie will make you happy!

Oberhauser: Why did you come?

James Bond: I came here to kill you.

Oberhauser: And I thought you came here to die.

James Bond: Well, it's all a matter of perspective.
