“No Time to Die” Review: Daniel Craig bids farewell to 007 with a slightly bloated Bond movie

Read Time:2 Minute, 17 Second



MGM was one of the first dramatic victims of the pandemic Delayed release Craig’s fifth and final outing lasted 18 months, and his debut in Casino Royale was 15 years after this chapter. Although he did not lose a step, his Bond version has never completely matched the dizzying introduction, and “No Time to Die” is no exception.

To its credit, this two-hour and 43-minute movie (thus making the title a bit like a lie) builds on everything the most recent Bond film has established, in a way that early incarnations don’t usually have. This deepens the character and allows Bond to experience sadness, loss and love without pressing the reset button, even though the evil Brookfield reappears.

Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (“True Detective”), this bond showcases its grand narrative ambitions in what may be the longest pre-title sequence in memory, introducing a mysterious new villain (played by Rami Malek, which seems to be leading Peter Lorre) and found Bond and retired happily.

Of course, his happiness after serving will not last, because M (Ralph Fiennes) and his CIA friend Felix Wright (Jeffrey Wright) are working hard to lure him Re-executing a mission involving terrible biological weapons (probably not the best time for that particular plot) and his rival in Spectre, brought back Madeleine Swan (Léa) from the 2015 movie Saidou) and Bloomfield (Christopher Waltz), who is now imprisoned.

Bond also discovered that his position in MI6 was cleverly occupied by a new agent (Rasana Lynch) who inherited his 007 license. However, although Lynch made a powerful addition, their quarreling jokes were relatively weak, only adding a rich part of activity that must be served by a more complicated plot than usual.

A potential theme is that the world has changed — of course from the Cold War period when the character was born — that casts a shadow over the alliance, as Wright contemplated, “it’s hard to tell good from bad”. However, this measure of complexity does not strengthen formulas based on the actions of villains and muscles that threaten the world.

As far as Bond’s main work is concerned, the film does offer some impressive chases and action sequences, Anna de Armas (Craig’s “Out of the Sword” Co-star) added another dose of female empowerment to the mission to bring Bond to Cuba.

Still, “no time to die” feels like it’s hard to provide Craig with a farewell worthy of all the hype associated with it-it can be simply summed up as excessive, and in the end, by spending too much time to reach the end.

“No Time to Die” premiered in American theaters on October 8. It is rated PG-13.
