No Time to Die

No Time to Die ★★½

The opening chase and Billie Eilish's theme song are probably the best parts of this. The rest feels like a second-rate spy thriller. The twists are predictable; what’s more, it's the formulaic “family” plotline that sucks the soul right out of the film. The action is ok at best. Malek’s villain is a farce, and the chemistry between Bond and Swann is almost non-existent. They also did a poor job setting up the new 007 because Lashana Lynch was barely given anything to work with. At least, Craig‘s Bond run ends on a fitting note that is guaranteed to get the tear ducts working. Wish there were more of Ana de Armas drop-kicking people with her heels.
