No Time to Die

No Time to Die ★★★

Take this with a grain of salt because I'm not really a Bond guy, and in all honesty spent a large portion of the runtime just thinking about how badly I want the next Mission: Impossible film to come out.

This is undeniably a very well put together film. It's big, has great cinematography and some sporadically great setpieces. When it dives into Bond the human being is when I liked it most and I admittedly found the final 10 minutes or so to be quite moving. Daniel Craig is great, I just don't find the character all that interesting and the narrative surrounding him in this one is quite generic too.

Shout out to Ana De Armas though. I didn't really buy into the hype around her leading up to this film but she is absolutely the best part of it despite being in only one scene. Such a fun character and had far more chemistry with Bond than anyone else in the film. Hope to see more of her in the future.
