No Time to Die

No Time to Die

If Skyfall was an omen for a Bond aging out of a world that was quickly outpacing him, and Spectre a melancholic ballad to the ghosts and graveyards of the past, then No Time To Die is the final death blow to an evidently deteriorating 007 as his entire world collapses around him. A microcosm of tragedy and dehumanization, masks and silhouettes imprinted in shadows, violence contorting the psychological spectre into an unknown shape, weaponizing biology into devastation. It does things I never expected a Bond film to do, and it is the perfect and only logical ending to Craig's 15-year saga in the role. You cannot escape your fate--you can only become it. Earthshattering, thunderous, heartbreaking, and essential.

"Here we are, two old men, sitting in a room, trying to figure out who's playing with us."
