No Time to Die

No Time to Die

Well paced, beautifully filmed action spectacle. Daniel Craig’s turn as Bond ends on a high note. No Time To Die is everything I wanted it to be, and beyond that it provides some thoughtful, compelling closure to this series of five Bond movies. 

Lashana Lynch was a highlight of Captain Marvel and I’m thrilled to see her steal a bunch of scenes in this movie as well. No Time To Die has one of the best casts I’ve seen in a recent movie. Ana De Armas is fantastic as well, unfortunately only in about fifteen minutes of the film but her sequence is one of the most entertaining.

It is evident that everyone involved put forth an admirable amount of effort into making this final chapter special. It may not reach some of the heights of Skyfall or Casino Royale, but No Time To Die is executed with brilliance on every front.

I’m in no rush to see any news about the future of these films, and I think they’d be wise to let us all reflect on this one for a time before any announcements. The Craig era had some low points, but the movies that worked well are some of the absolute best to come from this franchise.
