No Time to Die

No Time to Die ★★★½

2021 Ranked
James Bond Ranked

There are plot holes all over the place, but it doesn't matter because this one is about character and emotion. A pretty fitting end to the Craig era, and quite ballsy in its choices, particularly around the fate of many characters. The music is well done, the cinematography is quite beautiful, and I really like the performances - particularly of the women. The action is just okay, although the initial car chase and the Cuba sequence are exceptional. The biggest issue is the villain - motivation issues, sound mixing issues, screen time issues, fierceness issues. Safin is completely outshined by his right hand henchman and even a short lived Blofeld in a cell sequence.

All in all, No Time to Die is pretty fun. Bonus points for all of the On Her Majesty's Secret Service references.
