At the Movies – Spectre

2015 At the movies December 2015 Suzanne A. Marshall

By Suzanne A. Marshall from the December 2015 Edition

Starring: Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux

Director: Sam Mendes

“A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While ‘M’ battlepolitical forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.”

As a frequent movie ‘goer’ it’s pretty hard to forgo the latest James Bond film. You know what you’re going to get and that’s exactly what this movie delivers. This includes: loads of action, combative stunts that no one should be able to walk away from; special effects, gadgets and weapons; beautiful women, sinister villains, sexual innuendo and ridiculously complex plot lines.( Sort of.)

If for no other reason, the movie is worth the price of admission just to experience the first fifteen minutes which takes place in central Mexico City during the celebration of the “Day of the Dead”. The aerial shots, costuming and crowd scenes are absolutely stunning. This movie runs long at two and a half hours and could have ended sooner in my opinion. However, despite the holes in the plot and predictable outcomes it was really great fun.

IMDB rated this movie as 7.4/10 based on 26,700+ viewers.
