Reviewed for Hero Collector and Nerdly (coming soon).
Short version: it’s great. Some lovely nods to other Bond films. Performances go above and beyond this time round, especially Craig and Seydoux. Only real complaint: Ana de Armas totally steals the film in her handful of scenes and then promptly disappears. I mean, there’s “always leave them wanting more” and then there’s this. You spend the entire movie waiting, in vain, for her to come back. Audiences will be *desperate* to see that character again, so here’s hoping she gets her own spin-off movie or TV show or something.
