the repetitive nature of the kill shots at the end became boring; how many far heavier cars can be victimized by side-swiping from an Asian SUV? (obviously, quite a few...); the plot was needlessly confusing; the super villain could have used more screen time pre-climax; that "new" 007 looks like she needs a new trainer: whatever she's doing, it ain't working--- agents gotta be lean and mean. Finally, when that cool-as-ice new Cuban female agent left the screen, the film lost a lot of its allure...
Still, it's a must-see film for Bond enthusiasts. B- to C+.
The biggest problem: WAY too damned long. Inevitably, these kinds of films get flaccid when they stretch much over 90 minutes, or so.
I'm still not sure who the kid's father is? Raimi?
Notice James didn't get laid other than by his monogamous partner? We can thank Fleabag for that.
If you waited until the end of the credits the screen said: James Bond will be back.
Not Jane Bond.
I wonder if they will reset and start making the movies over? That could work for me. A lot of peeps want Loki to be the new bond.
I believe the kid was James' cuz all the references to the "blue eyes."
I think, after a day of reflection , that the director for this was just all wrong. No pacing, way too many action sequences that had no originality. And trying to make a Bond movie into a sentimental one was a bad move.
Lastly, the climactic scene in the pool? Ridiculous. A guy as smart as the key nemesis who got that close to 007--- that would be moronic. And what happened to the early villain w/the glass eye? He should have had a spectacular death, now... I can't even recall his demise. Just another among the tens and tens of dead guys. And what's with the prudishness? No nudity, no real sex. Is James Bond a Boy Scout, for goodness's sake? Don't get me started on Blofeld. Talk about nonessential, anti-climactic, and weak! Compare his performance to any in his collaborations with Tarantino: the guy can be riveting. Here? "Gimme the check" must have been his strongest statement.
