Just got back from the first IMAX showing of the new 007 movie. My review:
Surprising, exciting, witty writing.
Bad villains make bad Bond movies. The villain in this one played by Javier Bardem (continuing his trend of playing bad guys with outstanding hair styles) is creepily perfect.
Engaging acting by all, especially Daniel Craig and Judi Dench.
Awesome action. The train vs. Caterpillar tractor scene? Outstanding!
Gorgeous cinematography at locations both colorful and gloomy.
Spot-on direction that’s exciting without being quick-cut jerky and obvious.
My only complaint is the title song. Music is fine. Adele is fine. Lyrics are lazy and dumb.
See it in IMAX if possible!
