I went to see Spectre, the last movie of the iconic 007 agent, James Bond. To be honest, I didnt like it that much. I dont know if it is because Daniel Craig to me is not as charming, as riskier, as passionate.. actually, to me he is mechanical even when seducing.
Not sure if he wanted to portrait the character like that or if it is just the way he is. The cars are there, the explosions are there (one with a Guinness record even), the ladies are there and the bad man is there too. Lets go bit by bit- as Jack the Ripper said.
The cars were very impresive -I fell in love with the Aston Martin, and the Jaguar of the bad one too.. – of course no matter the make or how cool is car.. in the hands of Bond it doesnt last long. If the ¨00 program¨ would stop being financed and James would lose his job he can always come to Dubai and work as a Taxi driver.
The explosions were omnipresent.. No building was left untouched in this movie.. same the ladies, well in the Dubai cinemas all sexy scenes were cut, but, we know James.. I dont get to see all the noise about Monica Bellucci (the widow of a criminal that just buried her husband and falls to Bond), in reality it was not too much -or too long at least- of a Bond girl. The blonde Madeleine (played by Lea Seydoux) was more the Bond girl in this movie.
The team behind Bond was great this time though.. more passionate and caring than usual. Monneypeny (Naomi Harris) and Q, the geek and inventor (Ben Whishaw) helped Bond even against M, the boss of them all (Ralph Fiennes).
Oberhauser (played by Christopher Waltz) was the bad guy but really he was not that bad, I mean he was mean, ambitious, jealous, cold and scheming.. but was kind of soft himself.. too clinical, too civilized, too … tschuu.. the fact of having a machine to inflict pain (that looked like the ones at the dentist office, just saying!). I dont know if it is me but as the bad it was not that good. I like better the role that Bardem played in Skyfall.. a bit crazy, very unpredictable and bad person for the sake of being really despicable. By the way Oberhauser is the boss, the brain of the Spectre, a criminal group that was behind most of the bad guys in former Bond movies. What does Spectre want? World domination. How? I give you only a tip.. Information is power.
Conclusion: It is a Bond movie, I wouldn´t have missed it, but truth to be told, it was not what I expected. I give it 2 Shiny stars out of 5.
