No Time to Die

No Time to Die ★★★½

A bit rambly and overlong, but otherwise not bad at all. Fukunaga has real chops; there are moments when his directorial hand is so assured that it doesn’t feel like a Bond movie at all; or rather, it feels fresh and unfamiliar. However, he really has little sense for plot mechanics; the story is very unlikely to hold up to any kind of careful scrutiny, so don’t think about it too much. There’s a pretty legitimate emotional denouement though, which again is new territory for this franchise.
