No Time to Die – Movie Review

Well to my surprise this movie has a UA rating and there were young audience in the theatre that I visited. Considering how cosy Mr. Bond gets with the person of opposite gender this rating kinda surprised me.

Let me talk about the good stuff. At age 53 Daniel Craig has a charisma and body language that can make the young folks jealous. Aston Martin driving skills in the movie was superb. There’s also a scene where Mr. Bond rides bike and boy that was brilliant. He rides bike on stairs. Also in the later part of the movie he drives a different vehicle (Pajero if I’m not wrong) and he ensures that any vehicle given to him does the same damage to the enemy. Plenty of Land Rover are damaged during the fight scenes and that justifies the $250 million production cost of the movie.

The song by Billie Eilish adds additional flair to the movie. This movie also has emotional stuff and there were many sad faces in the theatre post climax. SPOILER ALERT don’t read further.

The reason for the sad faces post climax of the movie was, Mr. Bond dies in the movie. Well, if Mr. Bond was a single lad then the intensity of the sad faces would have probably been less. This movie shows his attachment to Madeline and her daughter (I didn’t concentrate properly in the movie and I believe Mr. Bond is the father of Madeline’s daughter, and Mr. Bond too affirms it as he and Madeline’s daughter both have blue eyes.) So, the ending was hard to digest.

The movie felt a bit lengthy and few unnecessary action scenes justify it. Also the villain’s character isn’t top notch but unfortunately this villain kills Mr.Bond. The villain’s character is strong at the start of the movie.

When it comes to criticism, Madeline gets kidnapped and in the next scene she’s in pointed stilettos. I don’t remember what footwear she was wearing in the previous scene. Also considering the nature of the tense situation and fights, stilettos don’t suite the scene. Well, stilettos reminds me of this another beautiful lady who helps in Mr. Bond’s mission, this lady is a newbie and does some excellent job. And if you are wondering if Mr. Bond gets cosy with this lady too 😉, well to your surprise he doesn’t. Also the newly appointed 007 is a bit rude to Mr. Bond in some scenes. The death of M in Skyfall is a loss to movie viewers, as the new M lacks the lustre of the old M.

Well, that was my review. Before closing the tab do check my other posts because you’ll fall in love with them. Well, did you say “Roger that” ? 😂. Anyways see you next time until then take care and stay safe 🙂
