I absolutely loved this installation to the Bond movies! I have never been that interested in Bond, but this fresh new perspective had me wanting to go back and watch all the old movies that I missed. Well done!
I really wanted to like this movie. I mean, really, really wanted to like this movie. There were too many ideas that couldn't be fully explored in the 2-hour run-time, and characters that were flat and lifeless. What I WILL say, though, is that the visuals were gorgeous. The scene in the underwater theatre truly left me awestruck. I'm a huge fan of West World and I think Lisa Joy is incomparable. But ultimately it just felt like 10 episodes of a TV show strung together to make one movie. I hope they remake it or actually do a TV show with it at some point because the concept is so cool. But this rendition is probably not worth your time, tbh.
I also found it weird that a movie written and directed by a woman didn't even pass the Bechdel test!
